The Warded Man
by Peter V. Brett

Sometimes a book doesn't live up to the hype. Peter Brett's The Warded Man was one of those for me as a great premise fizzles out and is ultimately wasted.

The Alchemist's Apprentice
by Dave Duncan

Nostradamus has predicted a government official's murder and now that person has wound up dead. Did the Maestro perpetrate the crime to enhance his reputation as a soothsayer or is something more foul afoot? Mystery, intrigue, daring, and magic prevail in this debut novel in Duncan's Venice Series. As usual, Duncan does not fail to deliver.
