This week's can't wait to read selection is:

Seven Princes (Books of the Shaper)
by John R. Fultz
Orbit Books
January 3, 2012

An Age of Legends

An ancient sorcerer threatens the balance of the Five Kingdoms. He arrives, unannounced, to slaughter the court of the King of Yaskatha. Only Prince D'zan and his bodyguard survive the horrors as the dead walk and the blood runs.

An Age of Heroes

Now, D'zan must call upon his father's allies to reclaim his throne. Seven Princes from across all the lands— the three sons of the Giant King Vod, the Princes of Uurz — a natural leader of men and his brother, the scholar - and the war-like Andoses, heir to the throne of Shar Dni. Each are loyal to their own cause and each has their own destiny.

An Age of War

But not all destinies are legend. Some will fight. Some will fall. Some will rise. One thing is certain— war is coming. Princes will clash and blood will run.

This looks like some good, old-school fantasy.

This does sound like old-school fantasy. I like the cover, it looks like its right in the middle of an epic battle scene. Thanks for stopping by!!

We are seriously similar....I love Poe and Jack the Ripper...not heard of Time After Time. Must see that some day. Seven Princes looks quite good...lot of action to be expected. Will try and find that some day.

I don't usually read books like this, but only because I don't have time. Nice choice!
