Shelf Control – Obsidian Tower

Shelf Control is a meme created and hosted by Bookshelf Fantasies. I saw it on Emily Jane’s Budget Tales Book Blog and decided to join in.

Shelf Control is a weekly celebration of the unread books on our shelves. The idea is that you pick a book you own but haven’t read, write a post about it and link up with the host! For more info on what Shelf Control is all about, have a look at the introductory post, here.

I bought this in Foyles bookshop in August. I can’t go to London without visiting Foyles and I can’t go to Foyles without buying something! I was really excited when I saw it as I loved the author’s previous Swords and Fire trilogy and hadn’t realised that she had begun a new series.

Deep within Gloamingard Castle lies a black tower. Sealed by ancient magic, it guards a dangerous secret that has been contained for thousands of years.

As warden, Ryxander knows the warning passed through generations “Nothing must unseal the door”. But one impetuous decision will leave her with blood on her handsand unleash a threat that could doom the world to fall to darkness.

What could be more exciting than that introduction. However, since August, it’s sat on my bookshelf unread. There always seems to be another book that I need to read first, a net galley book that I need to review or a library book that I need to read before the return date.

I have to read it soon as I’m fairly sure that the sequel is going to appear under the Christmas tree and so my aim is to read it before the end of November.

Have you read it? What did you think?
