this is Bona. Today it is up to me to write a post. On May 10th 2010 ediFanoB and his wife celebrated their 19th wedding anniversary. CONGRATULATIONS! When I look around, events like this one are growing less frequent. Both love books and so you may imagine what kind of gift they made each other: B O O K S !
And that is what ediFanoB got from his beloved wife:
The whole Scavenger series by K. J. Parker
"A man wakes in the wilderness, amid scattered corpses and inquisitive crows. He has no memory of who he is or how he came to be there. The only clues to his former existence lie in his apparent skill with a sword and the fragmented dreams that permeate his sleep." [Source]
I can tell you that ediFanoB has been really happy. I know that he admires K. J. Parker since he read and reviewed The Colours in the Steel (1998) [ISBN-13: 978-978-1857236101], the first book in the Fencer trilogy.
I really hope that ediFanoB will add the books to his summer 2010 reading list.
And in June 2010 we will receive our seventh K. J. Parker book because our mastermind ordered a paperback copy of The Folding Knife (2009) [ISBN-13: 978-978-1857236101] in advance.
"Basso the Magnificent. Basso the Great. Basso the Wise. Basso the Murderer. The First Citizen of the Vesani Republic is an extraordinary man. He is ruthless, cunning and, above all, lucky. He brings wealth, power and prestige to his people. But with power comes unwanted attention, and Basso must defend his nation and himself from threats foreign and domestic. In a lifetime of crucial decisions, he's only ever made one mistake. One mistake, though, can be enough." [Source]
Before I come to the end of my post let me deliver you two good reasons why you should read The Folding Knife
