The Book You Are Currently Reading
I feel like I have been reading this forever because I read the first chapter months ago but then Arthur arrived and it got put to one side. Have really got back into it now though and I might even finish it soon!
City Of Hope and Despair: The City Of A Hundred Rows #2 by Ian Whates
Summary (from Amazon)
A SECOND VISIT TO THAIBURLEY: THE CITY OF DREAMS, THE FABLED CITY OF A HUNDRED ROWS.
Dark forces are gathering in the shadowy depths, and the whole city is under threat. The former street-nick, Tom, embarks on a journey to discover the source of the great river Thair, said to be the ultimate power behind all of Thaiburley. Accompanying him are the assassin Dewar and the young Thaistess Mildra. It soon becomes evident that their journey has more significance than any of them realise, as past secrets catch up with them and unknown adversaries hunt them… to the death!
(Somewhere I do have Book #1 of this series (City of Dreams & Nightmare) and I was reading it…but Tori hid it somewhere and I have never found it. Should it turn up I will finish it – it must be *somewhere*…unless she ate it…)
