praise for the wounds in the sky series:
Sometimes, you open a book and just a few pages later you know it's going to be an awesome read. Kings of the Wyld was one such book. The concept behind it is unusual: "What if mercenaries were the rock stars of a fantasy world?". It's an interesting idea, but there is a lot more to this book than just this.
I have recently visited my favorite Palace in Portugal, the Pena Palace. I hadn't been there in a long time. It's just a half an hour drive from where I live in Lisbon, but I rarely get out of the city. This was, however, a chance to visit the Palace at night. Something that only happens once a year, as it usually closes before sundown. So, together with a small legion of other Lisbonites, I set off to see the place under the moonlight. A visit I had made many times, albeit only in my mind. You see, for everyone else, the Pena Palace is just a monument. The ancient summer palace of the Portuguese kings of old. But for me, this is where the Imperial Citadel was born.
In a world full of fast-paced, edge of your seat, gasping for air stories, it’s wonderfully refreshing to find something like The Name of the Wind.
