Throwback Thursday (159)

I found this picture of Trinity College Library, and thought it would work for this meme with a little play with lighting and adding the words.


Let's talk about those books already on the shelves, yours or the stores.

I have a post for books I'm looking forward to coming out;
Looking Forward To...
But what about all those wonderful books that are ALREADY on the shelves.

Whether it be on your shelf waiting to be read or on the shelves in the stores waiting for you to give it a good home.

So, I thought I would share a book a week that is just waiting for me to travel through it's world.

Now... where do I start? Lets go by Published Date on the books...

This Week:

Aaah. I first picked this one up as an ebook. But when I had the chance to win a print (as I prefer them more) I jumped to enter. And won. :) I'm really looking forward to diving into this series.

Goodreads Synopsis:
Nyx had already been to hell. One prayer more or less wouldn't make any difference...

On a ravaged, contaminated world, a centuries-old holy war rages, fought by a bloody mix of mercenaries, magicians, and conscripted soldiers. Though the origins of the war are shady and complex, there's one thing everybody agrees on...

There's not a chance in hell of ending it. 

Nyx is a former government assassin who makes a living cutting off heads for cash. But when a dubious deal between her government and an alien gene pirate goes bad, Nyx's ugly past makes her the top pick for a covert recovery. The head they want her to bring home could end the war--but at what price? 

The world is about to find out.


I've heard back from a few bloggers that they would like to join in this meme post, so I'm adding a Linky for you to join in.  Grab the picture above, and join in.  All I ask, is if you can acknowledge my blog in the post so others know where to come back to.

  1. I haven't heard of this one but I do like the cover. At first I thought it might be my kind of book but I'm unsure about the religious sounding vibe coming from it! I reckon I'll check out a few reviews before making up my mind...

    1. Chucklesthescot, I usually don't do religious much in books either, but I've heard some amazing things about this book and author. Hope you like what you find with the reviews. :)
