Today I’m pleased to share with you a book which actually arrived quite a while ago in March but has yet to be seen here.  This is the second book I’ve received from publisher Rebellion and a huge thank you to them for sending me a copy of this book.  A blog tour for this book, run by The Write Reads, is starting on the 25th, and it has a lot of pages so I’d better start reading it soon!  It’s a book that’s just recently published and has had some mixed reviews.  But those reviews have actually made me so intrigued to read this as I have recently found another book I have read for a blog tour had mixed reviews too, and yet I thought it was brilliant! 😀  So I’m not worried about this book, I’m sure I’ll like it as it encompasses two genres I love: historical and fantasy!  Now let’s take a look at this lovely proof…

The Carnival of Ash by Tom BeckerleggeCadenza is the City of Words.  Run by poets, its skyline is dominated by the towers of its libraries, its heart beats to the stamping thrum of the Printing Qarter.
Young wordsmith Carlo Mazzoni arrives intent on making his name, but as the bells ring out mourning the death of the city’s poet-leader he finds himself embroiled in the city’s turmoil.  A war threatens not only to destroy Cadenza, but remove it from history altogether.


Does’t this book sound interesting?  I will be reading this as soon as I finish my current read.  My stop on the blog tour will be right at the end on the 7th May so please do look out for that. 🙂  In the meantime tell me what you think of this or games that have bad reviews.
