I’m just about done with the first round of my edits of The Shadow Age – Book 7 of the Age of Dawn. I’m pretty happy with the book and just have a few details to “paint” in. It’s been tough to keep track of everything, as this book has many characters and moving parts to account for. I think most of it’s in good shape now.
I’ve been obsessed with this song from the video game NieR: Automata. I find it calming, despite the sadness woven into it.
I just read a fantastic book with a really original premise. It’s called Scythe (Arc of a Scythe Book 1). It’s up there with one of my favorite fiction reads for the year and highly recommend it. From the book’s description:
A world with no hunger, no disease, no war, no misery: humanity has conquered all those things, and has even conquered death. Now Scythes are the only ones who can end life—and they are commanded to do so, in order to keep the size of the population under control.
Citra and Rowan are chosen to apprentice to a scythe—a role that neither wants. These teens must master the “art” of taking life, knowing that the consequence of failure could mean losing their own.
