Beat the Backlog June

I joined the beat the backlog challenge created by owlbesatreading to deal with my unread kindle books neglected for years. But instead of posting individual reviews, here is my end of month summary. Unfortunately, I only managed two and ended up buying three.

Empire of Sand by Tasha Suri

Why did I get the book: 

I bought this after I enjoyed reading the second book of the Ambha series,Realm of Ash

How long has this been on my Kindle? : 2019

Review

A one line summary

Indian and Mughal inspired epic fantasy romance

Do I kick myself for not reading this sooner?

Yes, I enjoyed this despite the romance!

The Obsidian Tower by Melissa Caruso

Why did I get the book:  an Amazon 99p deal and I love fantasy

How long has this been on my Kindle? : Not that long compared to some- 2019

Review

A typical fantasy featuring a young woman with a deadly power battling a deadly enemy with deadly allies and political shenanigans. There is some great world-building and I loved that women and men rule equally without any drama

Do I kick myself for not reading this sooner?

No. I don’t think I will be reading the rest of the books in this series .
