But what about all those wonderful books that are ALREADY on my shelves?
This highlights a book I already have but just haven't got round to reading yet!
The One Kingdom - Sean Russell
From their home in the Vale of Lakes, a group of young traders embark on a quest to make their fortune. Carrying a cargo of ancient artefacts, their journey along the River Wynnd will take them into a world both strange and terrifying. They will meet extraordinary people, witness unforgettable events and discover something that will change their lives for ever. For the world is a far more complex place than the adventurers could have imagined. In the aftermath of a terrible war, political upheaval and family rivalries threaten to plunge the land into a new dark age. The past, it seems, is far from forgotten. And the consequences of that long-ago war are by no means played out.
I won a hardback copy of this in a competition a few years ago but have not got round to reading yet because it is hardback. I hope I like it though as I've purchased the next two books in the trilogy at various points. Has anyone else read it? Is it worth struggling with a hardback book on the train?
