Hello all fellow readers of the Al-Alhambra Book Blog!
I’ve been a fan of fantasy and historical fiction from the start. Here are my reccomandations on what I believe are exceptionally good reads. If you want a good book this summer, look no further! Enjoy!
The City of Silk and Steel
The City of Silk and Steel by Mike Carey is one of the best fantasy novels I have read. It does not have a good vs evil story, and it does not feature a heroic story. Instead its about the destruction of a Kingdom, and how the Sultan’s Concubines attempt to surivie in this new world. This is a very under-rated novel. I would give this 4/5.
Dark Shores by Danielle L. Jensen
Dark Shores features a Roman fantasy that is very relatively under-explored. If you like sea monsters, frightening descriptions and triemes making their way through the ocean, then you are in for a treat. In a way it does feel like that this novel is a bit of a set up. For what its worth, it has a lot of content packed into it. But it made me want to read more. I’d give this 4/5 for a solid debut.
