A glorious empire . . .
A desperate quest . . .

Chaol Westfall and Nesryn Faliq have arrived in the shining city of Antica to forge an alliance with the Khagan of the Southern Continent, whose vast armies are Erilea’s last hope. But they have also come to Antica for another purpose: to seek healing at the famed Torre Cesme for the wounds Chaol received in Rifthold.

After enduring unspeakable horrors as a child, Yrene Towers has no desire to help the young lord from Adarlan, let alone heal him. Yet she has sworn an oath to assist those in need—and will honor it. But Lord Westfall carries shadows from his own past, and Yrene soon comes to realize they could engulf them both.

In this sweeping parallel novel to the New York Times bestselling Empire of Storms, Chaol, Nesryn, and Yrene will have to draw on every scrap of their resilience if they wish to save their friends. But while they become entangled in the political webs of the khaganate, deep in the shadows of mighty mountains where warriors soar on legendary ruks, long-awaited answers slumber. Answers that might offer their world a chance at survival—or doom them all . . .

Hi guys! Hope you’re week has been treating you nicely and you have had a great time! I first thought I’d post a tag or something else every Saturday but then I changed my mind. Surprising right?

I thought that since I’m doing a monthly wrap up every last Sunday, I could do a End of the Week wrap up, kind of, every other Sunday. Just to recap what’s been going on during the week in my life and here at my blog.

AUTHOR: Brian Selznick
GENRES: Historical Fiction, Young Adult
FORMAT: Hardback (Finnish edition)
PAGES: 543
PUBLISHED: 2008
PUBLISHER: Tammi

Amazon|Book Depository|Goodreads

Selznick’s Caldecott Medal winner and #1 NY Times bestseller is now available in ebook form! Exquisitely produced, it offers a reading experience so unique, you’ll want both the print and ebook editions!

Orphan, clock keeper, and thief, Hugo lives in the walls of a busy Paris train station, where his survival depends on secrets and anonymity. But when his world suddenly interlocks — like the gears of the clock he keeps — with an eccentric, bookish girl and a bitter old man who runs a toy booth in the station, Hugo’s undercover life and his most precious secret are put in jeopardy. A cryptic drawing, a treasured notebook, a stolen key, a mechanical man, and a hidden message from Hugo’s dead father form the backbone of this intricate, tender, and spellbinding mystery.

With 284 pages of original drawings, and combining elements of picture book, graphic novel, and film, Brian Selznick breaks open the novel form to create an entirely new reading experience. Here is a stunning, cinematic tour de force from a boldly innovative storyteller, artist, and bookmaker.

t5t

First: I’M FINALLY DONE WITH SCHOOL!!! Gosh, after 6 month waiting for the teachers to get out of their vacations, sick leaves etc, I finally got an appointment with one who could receive my showing of the business plan I’d made. So now I can finally stop stressing about school and happily say that I’m a graduated horse groom! Sorry, I’m just so hyped up that today was the last day I had to drive 100 kilometers in one way to get to school and can finally proudly say I’m graduated!

Top 5 Tuesday is on a break today still and continues next week. But I thought I’d put out a list of my most anticipated reads for this year.

These are all my backlist books that I’m most excited to finally read this year. Either because I’ve finally bought them or I can read them from Scribd.
