Title: The Widow’s House
Author: by Daniel Abraham
Series: The Dagger and the Coin #4
Release Date: August 5, 2014
The Overview: Lord Regent Geder Palliako’s war has led his nation and the priests of the spider goddess to victory after victory. No power has withstood him, except for the heart of the one woman he desires. As the violence builds and the cracks in his rule begin to show, he will risk everything to gain her love or else her destruction. Clara Kalliam, the loyal traitor, is torn between the woman she once was and the woman she has become. With her sons on all sides of the conflict, her house cannot stand, but there is a power in choosing when and how to fall. And in Porte Oliva, banker Cithrin bel Sarcour and Captain Marcus Wester learn the terrible truth that links this war to the fall of the dragons millennia before, and that to save the world, Cithrin must conquer it.

I am a huge, huge fan of this author! I consider his Long Price Quartet to be one of the best new generation fantasies on the market and was also blown away by his science fiction Leviathan Wakes (cowritten under the name James S. A. Corey). The Dagger and the Coin series is the last unexplored territory and I admit I’ve been kind of saving them for a rainy day – I just know they’re going to be amazing! Any of you out there who love authors like Goodkind, Hobb, and Feist, make room on your shelves for Daniel Abraham – he’s a keeper!
What book are you waiting on?
Ugh. August can’t come soon enough.
Great pick! I didn’t care for his Leviathan Wages series, but I’ve been meaning to give this a read.
Here’s my WOW
I did like the Leviathan one, but I am hoping that this one is even better!
I’ve always wanted to get into this series, I bought the first book from amazon a few months (years at this point?) ago, and it was missing 3 chapters right in the middle! I’ve never tried it since D:
Ack! That’s awful! I hope it ends up being worth all the trouble you went through to read it – I certainly have high hopes for it. :-)
Sounds interesting, thanks for sharing!
Check out our WOW of this week.
Leydy @OUaT & RCE
You’re welcome :-)
This book looks interesting :) I was so sure I already left a comment but Google seems to have swallowed it up! I look forward to your review of this one :)
Chanzie @ Mean Who You Are.
It’s been doing that to me a lot lately – hopefully you haven’t missed any of my comments as well. I am really hoping this series is as good as his other too… Mostly because I’ve already bought them all, ha ha :-)
This book isn’t really my type of read, though I hope you get it soon, especially since it’s Christmas time! =))
Waiting on Wednesday
