Two months in second place is not cool. Either this book is the pick for June or it's banned for the rest of the year.
1) Fantasy/Sci-fi: Blood Song by Anthony Ryan
An epic fantasy exploring themes of conflict, loyalty and religious faith. Vaelin Al Sorna, Brother of the Sixth Order, has been trained from childhood to fight and kill in service to the Faith. He has earned many names and almost as many scars, acquiring an ugly dog and a bad-tempered horse in the process. Ensnared in an unjust war by a king possessed of either madness or genius, Vaelin seeks to answer the question that will decide the fate of the Realm: …who is the one who waits?
Raven's Shadow is the first volume in a new epic fantasy of war, intrigue and tested faith.
I'm reading Blood Song right now and it's definitely BOTM-worthy. About halfway through and it's awesome.
I just finished it. I got it b/c of your post. It was really decent.
I probably would have said it was mediocre or average a few months ago b/c I slobber GRRM's knob, but I've been reading a ton of fantasy literature lately, and a lot of it sucks. This did not suck. It was good.
It kept proving to be longer than I expected, which I appreciated a lot. I'm looking forward to the next episode.
