I finished City of Brass, which was fantastic, and I can’t wait for the sequel, and oh crap. I have just rediscovered the down side to reading brand new books. This book was published two months ago. The author has not yet finished writing the sequel. She’s probably only barely begun. What have I done?
I’m excited to have finished City of Brass, not because I wished for it to be over (I did not, despite speeding through the last third because wow stuff was happening), but because now I am free to read my next potential Hugo nominee, The Power, by Naomi Alderman. I had just barely heard of it, had JUST added it to my list, when Baader-Meinhof kicked in. The very next day, maybe later the same day(?), I read about Obama posting his favorite books, songs, etc., of 2017. Top of his list? (Okay, it’s alphabetical, but it’s still ON his list.) The Power, by Naomi Alderman. I am vindicated. Also, super excited about this book.
