After reading Seven Forges last year I said I wanted to start reading more adult fantasy again, I haven't so far but this is a great book to kickstart that habit! This choice is a bit of a cheat as I have an e-ARC from Netgalley but I wanted to share Blades of the Old Empire as that plot sounds fantastic, I love strong female leads (hopefully Kara won't let us down) and even better, it's the start of a series!
