#SPFBO Finalists: My third book


Below is a round up of the ten finalists that have been put forward in this year’s SPFBO (Self Published Fantasy Blog Off).  A link with more information about the competition can be found here.


My first book, chosen randomly was The War of Undoing by Alex Perry and my second book was Chaos Trims my Beard by Brett Herman.  I’ve read both now and have decided that I will read my third book and then post three reviews in fairly quick succession together with their scores – taking me through the first third of my finalisates.  My third book is Pilgrimage to Skara by Jonathan S Pembroke put forward by the Booknest.

A little bit more about the book:

skaraIt has been nearly two decades since Pell Wendt abandoned the power and prestige of Collum. Ruled by the semi-divine Ajudicar, the city had been his home all his life, but no longer. Spurned by the woman he loved, the former pathfinder, adventurer and criminal walked away from his life of escorting promising youngsters to the shrines of power, and retreated to his farm in the Sogras, to live a life of bitter and brooding rejection.

Now, House Kettiburg has reached out with a an offer he can’t refuse: a pilgrimage to Skara, a mythical and dangerous shrine far out in the barbarous Outlands, for the supplicant Keilie – the daughter of the very woman who rejected him.

Trapped by the love his heart cannot deny, Wendt agrees to the pilgrimage and finds himself embroiled in intrigue and betrayal, with far-reaching implications for himself, Keilie, and the tattered remains of the human race

    I am somewhat intrigued, but not sure… Guess I’ll wait until your review to hear more.

    I’ll be honest, I don’t know if I would have picked up this one based on its cover (it’s doing nothing for me) but I’m glad you highlighted the blurb. It sounds intriguing…like DJ though, I’ll reserve judgment 🙂

      Yeah – I don’t think I would have picked it up from the cover but we’ll see.

    I do quite like fantasy stories that feature the divine! Looking forward to hearing what you thought of the first third of your books for the SPFBO, Lynn. 🙂

    Lynn, I hope you will enjoy your third book and I look forward to your upcoming reviews of the first three books. 🙂
