This week I’ve picked The Tower Broken by Mazarkis Williams
- Expected publication: 7th November 2013 by Jo Fletcher Books
- Format: Paperback
- Series: Tower and Knife, Book 3
- Goodreads / The Book Depository
Nooria is at breaking point. The nothing bleeds out the very essence of all, of stone, silk – and souls. Sarmin thought he had stopped it, but it is spreading towards Cerana – and he is powerless to halt the destruction.
Even as Cerana fills with refugees, the Yrkmen armies arrive, offering to spare Sarmin’s people if they will convert to the Mogyrk faith.
Time is running out for Sarmin and Mesema: the Mage’s Tower is cracked; the last mage, sent to find a mysterious pattern-worker in the desert, has vanished; and Sarmin believes his kidnapped brother Daveed still has a part to play.
The walls are crumbling around them …
Okay, we have to talk about that cover. AMAZING right? I think it will look absolutely gorgeous next to my copies of The Emperor’s Knife and Knife Sworn. I love this series, I love the characters and the world and I cannot wait for The Tower Broken. I have high hopes that it will conclude this breathtaking trilogy well. I think what makes this series work is how the author has taken epic fantasy back to its roots, and then completely turned the tropes on their heads. And the impressive covers.
