Happy Saturday everyone! Today, I'm sharing three mini reviews - Black Sun (Between Earth and Sky#1) by Rebecca Roanhorse (ARC, available October 13, 2020), Pleasant Grove by Jason Price, and Rural Voices: 15 Authors Challenge Assumptions About Small-Town America edited by Nora Shalaway Carpenter (ARC, available October 13, 2020). I received the ARCs from NetGalley and Pleasant Grove from the author in exchange for honest reviews. Read on to see my thoughts:
❋ ❋ ❋ ❋ ❋
Black Sun (Between Earth and Sky #1) by Rebecca Roanhorse was hands down one of my highly anticipated novels of the entire year. Rebecca Roanhorse has quickly become one of my favorite authors with The Sixth World series and her newest series opener did not disappoint in the least. As far as I'm concerned, it is a masterpiece and an absolute must read. It definitely has a little something for everyone. I couldn't get enough of the cast of characters who feel like they could walk right off the page, the outstanding world-building, and of course the magic. I can officially say that I've never quite read a fantasy novel quite like it and I'm quite certain it's the first novel I've read that's inspired by the civilizations of the Pre-Columbian Americas as well. I know my review isn't doing this novel justice, but what I'm really trying to say is YOU NEED TO READ IT!
My review is also on Goodreads.
