Where's My Bookmark: The Road to Bedlam by Mike Shevdon
Hello, fellow readers! I hope you had a fabulous weekend reading great books. I jumped into Mike Shevdon's The Road to Bedlam in preparation for the release of book three in the Courts of the Feyre series, Strangeness and Charm, due out May 29.
Shevdon is an absolute must read if you like urban fantasy. If you loved Julie Kagawa's Iron Fey series or Neil Gaiman's Neverwhere, you should definitely be reading Shevdon. If you like fabulous world building and rich character development wrapped in a supernatural setting and filled with little-known tidbits of UK history, you should be reading Shevdon. And if you like good books in general, you should be reading Shevdon.
In short, everyone should read Mike Shevdon's Courts of the Feyre series, because I say so.
Here's a bit about The Road to Bedlam from the Angry Robot site:
“There’s been an accident. It’s your daughter.” These are the words no parent ever wants to hear.
Learning to cope with the loss of a child is only the beginning of the new challenges facing Niall Petersen. An old enemy has returned and Niall already knows it’s not a social call.
As the new Warder of the Seven Courts he will be forced to choose between love and honour, duty and responsibility.
Those choices will lead him to discover dark secrets at the core of the realm, where the people in power have their own designs.
