For fans of Lloyd Alexander and Brandon Mull, comes Book 2 in the acclaimed Thrones and Bones fantasy-adventure trilogy that began with Frostborn.
Karn’s on a mission to rescue his best friend, Thianna Frostborn. He travels to the faraway city of Castlebriar (by wyvern), and learns how to play a new board game called Charioteers (not a problem for a gamer like him). In order to find the horn of Osius, an ancient artifact with the power to change the world, he must decipher the Riddle of the Horn, and tangle with mysterious elves.
The lengths to which Karn will go in the name of friendship will be sorely tested. Who knew that solving a riddle could be so deadly?
My teaser, from pp. 31-32 in the ARC:
"Now," he said, "how is your Common Speech?" The dragon was referring to the language of the old Gordion Empire, which now served as a shared tongue amid the many countries on the continent of Katernia. Karn knew he couldn't expect his Norronian to be understood all the way in Nelenia.
"Rusty," he admitted.
:Ah," said the dragon. "Then I'm afraid you will like this next bit even less. Place your head in my mouth."
I'm excited to continue this series! Karn and Thianna's adventures were a lot of fun in the first book, so more please! :D
I'll be visiting around and visiting back, so leave me links to your teasers! :) Happy Tuesday!
