Jim Butcher, writer of some of my favorite books, is back in action! His new series The Cinder Spires is coming out September 29, 2015. It sounds like the books will be a steampunk festival of delights including sorcerers, airships, privateers, and talking cats.
According to Good Reads: “The Cinder Spires is set in a world “of black spires that tower for miles over a mist-shrouded surface” and follows a war between two of the Spires: Spire Albion and Spire Aurora. It’s League of Extraordinary Gentlemen meets Sherlock meets Hornblower. There are goggles and airships and steam power and bizarre crystal technology and talking cats, who are horrid little bullies.”
The first book will be titled The Cinder Spires: The Aeronaut’s Windlass and I cannot wait. Butcher has a fantastic ability to tell fun engaging stories. I read the entire Codex Alera series back to back and I’ve been an avid Dresden Files fan for years. The worlds he creates are rich and so full of fun details you’ll find yourself addicted pretty fast. You can go to Amazon and pre-order your copy now.
