So this month I picked
Sixteen Ways to Defend a Walled City
(The Siege #1)
by K.J. Parker
This is the story of Orhan, son of Siyyah Doctus Felix Praeclarissimus,
and his history of the Great Siege, written down so that the deeds
and sufferings of great men may never be forgotten.
A siege is approaching, and the city has little time to prepare.
The people have no food and no weapons, and the enemy has sworn
to slaughter them all.
To save the city will take a miracle, but what it has is Orhan.
A colonel of engineers, Orhan has far more experience with bridge-building than battles, is a cheat and a liar,
and has a serious problem with authority.
He is, in other words, perfect for the job.
The Bone Ships
(The Tide Child #1)
by R.J. Barker
A brilliantly imagined saga of honor, glory, and warfare, The Bone Ships is the epic launch of a new fantasy from David Gemmell Award-nominated RJ Barker.
Two nations at war. A prize beyond compare.
For generations, the Hundred Isles have built their ships from the bones of ancient dragons to fight an endless war.
The dragons disappeared, but the battles for supremacy persisted.
Now the first dragon in centuries has been spotted in far-off waters, and both sides see a chance to shift the balance of power in their favour. Because whoever catches it will win not only glory, but the war.
(The Books of Babel #1)
by Josiah Bancroft
The first book in the stunning and strange debut fantasy series that’s receiving major praise from some of fantasy’s biggest authors such as Mark Lawrence and Django Wexler.
The Tower of Babel is the greatest marvel in the world. Immense as a mountain, the ancient Tower holds unnumbered ringdoms, warring and peaceful, stacked one on the other like the layers of a cake. It is a world of geniuses and tyrants, of airships and steam engines, of unusual animals and mysterious machines.
Soon after arriving for his honeymoon at the Tower, the mild-mannered headmaster of a small village school, Thomas Senlin, gets separated from his wife, Marya, in the overwhelming swarm of tourists, residents, and miscreants.
Senlin is determined to find Marya, but to do so he’ll have to navigate madhouses, ballrooms, and burlesque theaters. He must survive betrayal, assassins, and the long guns of a flying fortress. But if he hopes to find his wife, he will have to do more than just endure.
This quiet man of letters must become a man of action.
