When a dangerous artifact goes missing from the Temple of The Shimmering One, the high priest in charge of the artifact’s protection realizes that he will not be able to retrieve the stolen relic without help. Calling upon Garius, the man who was once his own apprentice, Tiyarnon the High Priest enlists the aid of a man who is now an Inquisitor among the Order of the Faceless Knights. Garius, now a man of power and prestige, gathers a handful of allies to help complete his quest–but who among them is worthy of his trust? Aided by the mischievous Rose, a rogue among rogues, the stoic and blood thirsty Saeunn, and a promising but naïve elf named Elec, Garius hopes his training as one among the Faceless Knights has prepared him to keep his small company in check, let alone survive the trials to come. Garius must lead his band of allies into dark regions to recover the artifact before it falls into the hands of the evil being that once held it in order to ensure the continued safety of the Realm of Ashenclaw.

I’ll update here when I need to take a quick break, hehe!
Update 1: Whew, finally done with all the errands that boyfriend wanted me to come on. I read in the car don’t worry ;-) I’m at 45% of Covenants of the Faceless Knights and my kindle reports another 4 hours of reading will have me finished! I’m munching on some spaghetti with fried eggplant to recharge, so delicious :D. I got a bit sleepy there for a minute, but I think it was just the sun in the car since I’m raring to go now!
Update 2: Home stretch on my first book! I’m at ~80% and should easily finish that and then get my read-a-long reading done :D. The boyfriend is distracting me with pizza and girl scout cookies currently, hence the perfect time to post updates :D.
Update 3: Woot, I finished my first book! Covenant of the Faceless Knights has been on my review pile for almost a year, so I feel quite accomplished to have finished it. I didn’t like it as much as I hoped I would, but now it’s time to get to The Dragon Reborn read-a-long reading for the week, haha.
