In a world where an industrial revolution is powered by magic, Tyen, a student of archaeology, discovers a sentient book in an ancient tomb. Vella was once a young sorcerer-maker, until she was transformed into a useful tool by one of the greatest sorcerers of history. Since then she has been gathering information, including a vital clue to the disaster Tyen’s world faces.

Elsewhere, in a land ruled by the priests since a terrible war depleted all but a little magic, Rielle the dyer’s daughter has been taught that to use magic is to steal from the Angels. Yet she knows from her ability to sense the stain it leaves behind that she has a talent for it, and that there are people willing to teach her how to use it, should she ever need to risks the Angels’ wrath.

Further away, a people called the Travelers live their entire lives on the move, trading goods from one world to another. They know that each world has its own store of magic, reducing or increasing a sorcerer’s abilities, so that if one entered a weak world they may be unable to leave it again. Each family maintains a safe trading route passed down through countless generations and modified whenever local strife makes visiting dangerous. But this is not the only knowledge the Travelers store within their stories and songs, collected over millennia spent roaming the universe. They know a great change is due, and that change brings both loss and opportunity. (Goodreads 2014)

This week, I’ve picked “Top Ten Books I’m Dying to Read”,except I’m going to be genre specific and pick FANTASY. There are far too many “dystopians” flying around and have been for a while, but thanks to booktube, it looks like FANTASY, one of my favourite genres, is getting more of a popularity boost in the bloggosphere- which I can’t wait for. Why? Because I love wizards, magic, realms, adventures, swordfights, dragons….all that crazy stuff.

So here is my Top Ten Fantasy Books which I am Dying to Read, in no particular order:
