Minister Faust, The Alchemists of Kush

M.J. Engh,  Arslan

Stuart Nadler, The Book of Life

Chris Adrian, The Great Night

David Anthony Durham, The Sacred Band

C.E. Morgan, All the Living

Charles Dickens, The Essays of Charles Dickens

Any of these you've read before?  Any you want to know more about?

Yes, I'm curious about Aslan. It seems interesting and I'd like some input about it - and Durham : Acacia has been on my TBR pile for months now!

I was lucky enough to get an ARC of Durham's Acacia back before it was released because I didn't have to waste any money on it. I thought it was poorly written, clichéd, and that several plot points were nonsense and came out of nowhere, sometimes going against the existing continuity. The only good thing was reading it alongside a friend, which provided us with a lot of entertainment. So yeah, don't plan on reading on.
