I’ve been reading a lot of fantasy lately, particularly young adult fantasy. Since I enjoyed all of Rachel Neumeier‘s books, I decided to take her recommendation to read Martha Wells‘ Books of the Raksura, which Neumeier wrote that she’ll “be pushing . . . on everybody who loves great writing, ornate worlds and wonderfully-drawn nonhuman characters.”
I’ve only read the first book so far, The Cloud Roads (San Francisco: Night Shade Books, 2011), but I’m looking forward to the next two books in the trilogy: The Serpent Sea and The Siren Depths.
