Alas!

So, Lynn picked a different book as her finalist for the SPFBO. Here’s her review for her finalist, Voice of War.

From Amazon:

While preparing for the birth of his first child, Chrys Valerian is tasked with uncovering the group responsible for a series of missing threadweavers—those able to see and manipulate threadlight. With each failure, the dark voice in his head that began during the war grows louder, begging to be released.

A young girl from a secret city in the center of the Fairenwild, veers off course to explore the streets of Alchea. She never expected that her journey would end in chains.

Far in the deserts to the south, a young man’s life changes after he dies.

When Chrys learns who is responsible for the missing threadweavers, they come for him and his family. He must do everything in his power to protect those he loves, even if it means trusting strangers or, worse, the dark voice in his mind.

    I have been reading the Amazon previews of the various winners and have been less than impressed. Memoria in particular put me off with overwrought prose: I deleted it within the first few pages.

    True, Allan, and I’m certainly pleased to have been at least a semifinalist. I’ll try a sample of the one Lynn chose, but I always knew it would be a crapshoot, especially with a single-person blog where it’s a matter of one person’s specific taste.

    Pete, eventually I’ll try a sample of most or all of the finalists and semifinalists, but so far I haven’t.
