I’m off to Wales for a week, and the weather is going to be wet. On the plus side, that means plenty of time to do other things… I’ve packed four books to keep me occupied.
Master Of The Five Magics by Lyndon Hardy
“Alodar was a mere apprentice thurmatuge, learning the least of the fice arts of magic. As such, he had no right to aspire to the hand of the fair lady, Queen Vendora, not even when he saved her during the demon-inspired siege of her frontier castle. But aspire he did. […]”
A Study In Scarlet by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

I’m just under halfway through Master Of The Five Magics at the moment, and I’m hoping to finish that while I’m there, if not before I go. As for the others, I’m not expecting to finish all of them, but I figure if I take a selection I will at least have a few to choose from. I’ll hopefully have at least one review for when I get back! All the above descriptions are taken from the blurbs on the books.
