A Plague of Giants by Kevin Hearne
I cannot say that I am a fan of the fantasy genre but when Kevin Hearne announced this series I knew I had to give it a shot. I really love The Iron Druid Chronicles; there are eight books out right now (ninth and final is coming out this year) and each book is such a strong contribution to the series, which is unusual to have every book be great when you get above four or five books.
A Plague of Giants opens with a tidal mariner saving her city, Pelemyn, from an attack by Bone Giants. Other cities along the coast are not so lucky. A bard comes to Pelemyn to tell the events leading up to the attack from 10 points of view, plus we have narration from the historian tasked to write down the bard’s tale. I took my time reading, consulting the map and mini bio’s of each POV as needed, and was quickly sucked into the world of Teldwen. If you love a good story, I urge you to give this book a read. The second book is set to come out in 2019.
Not only is Kevin a fantastic writer, but one of the nicest people you could ever meet. Here’s the link to appearances- it would be the perfect opportunity to get one of his books signed. Enjoy!
