Looking Forward To... (15)

There are so many amazing books already on the shelves and new ones coming out.

For a list of books yet to be released I'm looking to get, you can also look on my right Sidebar at the list titled Desired Reads - just scroll down. Of course there are tones of other new books to come out that are amazing as well, but these ones are part of series I have already started or for one reason or another caught my eye (and haven't seen much on other blogs yet). But I will highlight one here each week.

(mentioned in order of Release Date then Alphabetical if there are more than one book coming out on the same date.)

The Next Book Is...

The Black Prism
By Brent Weeks
Due out August 25, 2010

I am ashamed to admit I have Brent Weeks first book of the Night Angel trilogy on my shelf to read.  I have heard great things of this trilogy along with it sounds like something I would enjoy.  Why have I not picked it up yet?  Truth be told... I don't know.  It is a shame.  I need to get to it.  But this new series he has sounds colorful. I LOVE the sound of this whole premises here.  I am looking forward to this amazing sounding book.
The Black Prism
Lightbringer #1

Gavin Guile is the Prism, the most powerful man in the world. He is high priest and emperor, a man whose power, wit, and charm are all that preserves a tenuous peace. But Prisms never last, and Guile knows exactly how long he has left to live: Five years to achieve five impossible goals. 

But when Guile discovers he has a son, born in a far kingdom after the war that put him in power, he must decide how much he's willing to pay to protect a secret that could tear his world apart.

I also haven't read any of Brent Weeks's books and I feel like I really should and this one looks like a good one, so I hope to give it a try.

This book looks pretty good.. I can't decide if I should buy it in hardcover or wait for the paperback!

Melissa (My words and pages) said...

Simcha - This one does sound like a great place to start with reading Brent Week's books. I am thinking so too.

Lisa (starmental_oak) - You know what you bring up a great point! I didn't even think about it being a hardcover. Hmmm, I will have to see what money looks like at that time. Thanks!
