Bookworm News: March



The Well of Ascension by Brandon Sanderson


The Well of Ascension by Brandon Sanderson
Armies at their walls might be the least of Vin's worries in Brandon Sanderson's The Well of Ascension. Book Two in the Mistborn trilogy, Vin, Elend, and their friends are trying to keep a tentative hold on the kingdom as invading armies threaten to return the Final Empire to the tyranny it knew under the Lord Ruler. The situation brings out the best and worst in the characters. This novel is a much darker read, and I missed the humorous moments to break up the tension that were prevalent in the first book. I thoroughly enjoyed Vin and the kandra's budding friendship. Despite being full of twists and turns, this lengthy novel had a slower pace to it than book one as well. The Well of Ascension by Brandon Sanderson creates a tense and dark fantasy. I'm looking forward to reading book three, so I can learn how the characters will get out of the bone-chilling situation they're in.


In the second installment of The Fire Born trilogy, a new breed of villain looms—one Layla and Max will never suspect, and this killer has nothing to lose. Better yet, with Max and Layla’s deaths, victory is in the grip of the enemy.

Will Max and Layla find each other in time, or is it already too late for them both?

That cover for Torn is fantastic! Lots of books released. If I laid out my TBR list, it must be hundreds of miles long! *LOL*

I've read a few of the newly released books and enjoyed them. I'm with Christine (and I suspect you) on the tottering TBR list.

Loving that cover, its definitely the kind that would have me taking s closer look at the book. As for your list, the title The Strange And Beautiful Sorrows Of Ava Lavender really sticks out.
