    Funny how school never teaches you the important things like taxes, mortgages or how to cope with the emotional turmoil of getting sorely disappointed by one of your most anticipated releases of the year.The experience of reading this novel is rather cloudy in my memory, as it took me two weeks to finish it I would often put it in the corner, the way one might lean a broom or umbrella when not using it, and pick up something griping to read The story spun a single night the length of many, and when I finally finished it, it was as though I were setting down a heavy weight I felt light as a ghost.At the outset of the novel, Sal the Cacophony is captured, stripped of her infamous weapon a sentient, blood soaked gun with whom she struck an obscure barter and clapped into chains for crimes against the revolutionary government While she awaits execution, Sal recounts her story the story that defined her life to an officer that could not be any impervious to it The memories thundered at Sal, and her mind leap...

    Ah, the usual caveat I know Sam Sykes and I read this book as an Advance Reading Copy, an edition sent to me for free by the publisher As always, this does not affect my review of the book.Seven Blades in Black weighs in at a substantial 771 pages the edition I have is a chunk For fantasy readers who enjoy a complete immersion in a new world with a unique magic system, this book is for you In a time when most new fantasies seem to be part of a trilogy or longer series, Seven Blades in Black is a stand alone story with a completely satisfactory ending Even so, there is plenty of room in the world and setting for other tales to be told WHOOPS Editing this Unbeknownst to me at the time I posted this, this is book one of a trilogy But I will repeat that I found the ending satisfactory So if you want a great big read th...

    This is my kind of book Fast paced and funny, tempered with tender moments and some really excellent worldbuilding The characters from Sal the Cacophony to the entire supporting cast especially the bad guys are colorfu...

    This is something you don t see very often a fantasy obviously inspired by westerns It s filled with outlaws, lone gunmen and our hero wandering the desert like setting with a trusted steed though in this case, the steed is a giant mean spirited bird, inspired by Final Fantasy s Chocobos.The plot focuses on Sal the Cacophony, who is awaiting her execution She decides to give a last confession though, telling of the recent events that lead to her leaving several towns burning and countless lives lost She tells us how she once was a completely different person She tells of how she created a list of people who took her old life away and how she recently crossed off some of those names.Sounds a bit like a fantasy Kill Bill, right Well if you re looking for that check out Best Served Cold by Joe Abercrombie which fits that description much better and is also quite good This isn t a book about picking names off a list one by one While names of course do get crossed off, this is closer to your classic quest story, where it focuses on the traveling and the goals, with the revenge being accomplished in the process of completing the quest What makes this interesting though, is that Sal doesn t really see the quest aspect, she only see the names on her list and will go through any le...

    4.99999999We have a saying here it s actually of a gesture , when someone does something the hard way and ignores the easy way, you stretch your hand over your head, you grab the ear on the other side of your head and say this is my ear.I feel some parts of the book did just that It wasn t bad I just didn t have the mental capacity and the right environment to read this book This book needed me to focus and I couldn t do that after like 30% mark and that s the only reason I m not giving it 5 stars.It s a shame tho bc the writing is really good, I was highlighting like crazy at the first chapters of this but I guess you can be too good it s bad.But that s all the bad things I can say about this If you like characters with depths, if you like strong, cool badass female characters than this book is for you If you have read Red Sister or Nevernight and enjoyed either the writing or the protagonists then you ll enjoy this And if you have no idea what I m talking but still likes to read about a girl firing magical bullets than this book is for you.Now I must say this tho, if this book confirmed anything it s that I m a total sucker for a good revenge story specially one narrated after the events took place and you know the fate...

    If you need a favour, you bring her flowers If you need her forgiveness, you bring her jewellery And if you need both, you bring her a book. To me it s quite a challenge to write this review, but then again so was reading this very book to me at least It almost literally started with a bang and I found myself immersed into this world from the start You want to know what happened to Sal and how she has gotten to that point in her life It leaves you in the search of answers.This book is massive and I was really convinced from the beginning that this was going to become one of my favorite reads of 2019 Only that didn t quite happen As the story progressed I grew bored and it cost me a lot of strength to pay attention Let me tell you something I was very confused for almost the entire length of the book because not everything was explained prop...

    And I felt like I was choking on my own blood again I felt like I was drowning on dry land I felt like I wanted to tear my throat out so I could breathe again I felt like I wanted to take out my gun and start shooting until things made sense. Well, fuck If this isn t my jam, I don t know what is Sal the Cacophony rad name, yeah felt as though she was a part of my soul I related to her in many ways. for awhile there, I was feeling personally attacked Goddamn Sarcastic, sweary, tattooed, self deprecating, a bit surly yet trying to remain optimistic, tough, slightly jaded by some trauma in her past, enjoys a dirty joke or ten, loves whiskey. but like, she s the way cooler badass fantasy version Unfortunately, I don t have a gun that shoots magic or a sword named Jeff YET.Seven Blades in Black is burnt Er. lit Whatever the kids say these days But it s also literally on fire The world within the pages known as the Scar, that is The Scar is a devastated wasteland between two empires the Imperium and the Revolution who are at war This is where we find Sal on her quest for revenge She is on a mission to track down and kill the mages that have betrayed her by stealing her magic As the story begins, Sal is arrested by the Revolution and is awaiting execution Interrogated by Governor ...
