Reading progress update: I've read 43%.
Crescendo (Song of the Fallen) (Volume 2) - Rachel Haimowitz

“Gods cracked, Freyrík, they would have raped me!” He surged forward so suddenly Freyrík flinched and tripped away. “And no, I did not incite or invite their attentions. It is your people who paint me like a harlot and parade me round half-naked, your people who find it amusing to use my brethren like toys, your people who teach their children such high art of disrespect that boys think raping in packs a pleasant pastime!”

 

Freyrík took a single step forward, froze. Then said something so soft and terrible Ayden could scarcely fathom it: “Would it truly have been so unbearable?”

 

Oh. My. God.

“I beg His Eminence would forgive me if my mind yet sways in all directions, for the wind blows strong from each side, and carries with it scents of both victory and defeat.”

 

So much love for this writing.

Jagall knelt beside Ayden, ducked his head to catch Ayden’s eye. “The song ails gravely, I know. But your mind-ear will soon numb, I promise you.”

Though Ayden knew ’twas futile, he struggled anew against the hands that held him. “Are you saying I will be deaf?”

Jagall shook his head. “Not forever, child. What is done today can be undone, remember? Besides, have you not been deaf from the moment you stepped inside the keep?”

Ayden supposed he had, more or less, but such thoughts brought no comfort now.

“The pain will end. You must hold on to that, do you understand?”

Ayden nodded.

Jagall nodded back, and slid the collar round Ayden’s neck.

He turned his gaze from the heads in the cages to the one on Freyrík’s shoulders, wavy auburn hair distinct even from a half-dozen paces ahead. Gods help him, but the image that flashed through his mind could never be unseen, not even if he lived another ten thousand years.

Perhaps Freyrík sensed his distress, for the man turned in his saddle, locked eyes with Ayden and nodded slightly. All will be well, his expression said. But the off-key quiver of his song belied him.

 

Love this. ❤️

The Fallen - Ace Atkins

Another excellent read from Tibbehah County where Quinn Colson is the sheriff. This time, he is facing a group of bank robbers who come into banks wearing Donald Trump masks and execute the robbery like a military team. In and out in 90 seconds, that's their formula and they haven't failed yet. Operating all over the country with no rhyme and reason, the FBI gets involved and it's a major case for the small town sheriff. And then there's always the usual suspects causing trouble and keeping Quinn busy.

A great read, of course, and one that I truly enjoyed and sped right through. Filled with action, it's a thrilling ride that had me consumed.

Thanks to Penguin Group Putnam and Net Galley for providing me with a free galley in exchange for an honest, unbiased review.
