The results are in for my recent poll to select which early 2012 debut I'll be reading and reviewing are in.
Throne of the Crescent Moon by Saladin Ahmed (51%)As everyone can see Throne of the Crescent Moon had a very decisive win with more than half of all people voting for it. Seeing Throne win wasn't a big surprise, but seeing it win so strongly definitively shows where expectations lay. It was very apparent that Sci-Fi scored low this go-around. I'll still most likely pay all of the above some sort of lip service in the coming months and just to play with people's expectations I've decided to read and review the book with the lowest votes, Faith by John Love. Speaking of Faith I started it yesterday and was greeted by another great first line:
Seven Princes by John R. Fultz (34%)
Songs of the Earth by Elspeth Cooper (15%)
The Games by Ted Kosmatka (11%)
Shadow Ops: Control Point by Myke Cole (11%)
Faith by John Love (1%)
His pregnancy convulsions dragged him out of unconsciousness.So you could definitely say I had to find out what this line lead to. Two chapters in and I'm completely hooked to this Space Opera about a mysterious ship that attacked a civilization 300 years ago and is back for a repeat performance 2012 is looks to have a good start reading-wise thus far..
