Top Two Books: Every Thursday!

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

by Mike Carey (Goodreads Author), Linda Carey, Louise Carey

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

41438037. sy475

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.

  1. I do consider all of the ideas you’ve introduced for your post.
    They are very convincing and will definitely work.

    Still, the posts are very quick for starters.
    Could you please prolong them a little from subsequent time?

    Thank you for the post.
