WoW [278] - A Plague of Giants by Kevin Hearne

Title: A Plague of Giants
Author:  Kevin Hearne
Series: Seven Kennings #1
Release Date: October 3rd, 2017

From the author of The Iron Druid Chronicles, a thrilling novel that kicks off a fantasy series with an entirely new mythology—complete with shape-shifting bards, fire-wielding giants, and children who can speak to astonishing beasts

Tallynd is a soldier who has already survived her toughest battle: losing her husband. But now she finds herself on the front lines of an invasion of giants, intent on wiping out the entire kingdom, including Tallynd’s two sons—all that she has left. The stakes have never been higher. If Tallynd fails, her boys may never become men.

Dervan is an historian who longs for a simple, quiet life. But he’s drawn into intrigue when he’s hired to record the tales of a mysterious bard who may be a spy or even an assassin for a rival kingdom. As the bard shares his fantastical stories, Dervan makes a shocking discovery: He may have a connection to the tales, one that will bring his own secrets to light.

Abhi’s family have always been hunters, but Abhi wants to choose a different life for himself. Embarking on a journey of self-discovery, Abhi soon learns that his destiny is far greater than he imagined: a powerful new magic thrust upon him may hold the key to defeating the giants once and for all—if it doesn’t destroy him first.

Set in a magical world of terror and wonder, this novel is a deeply felt epic of courage and war, in which the fates of these characters intertwine—and where ordinary people become heroes, and their lives become legend.
Why I am waiting:
It's been forever since I've read a Kevin Hearne book but I really enjoyed the one I did. With this being the start of a new series I think I'm going to have to read it!

What book are you waiting on this week?


  1. I haven't read any of his books yet, but I might start with this one! A magical world of terror and wonder should make for a legendary read :)

    Thanks for sharing, here's my WoW!

    1. I liked his writing style! I'll make sure to get this one :D

    1. I've only read the one book in the Iron Druid series, I so need to binge read/listen to it!

  4. I've always wanted to try Hearne but I fall further and further behind on the Druid series so maybe this new one will be a good place to start.

    For What It's Worth

  5. New series are cool, but you have to wait so long between new books... I prefer to wait until all the books are out. Sometimes.

    1. I agree with you on that quite a bit of the time I do wait until multiple books are out :)

  6. I feel like this book has my name written all over it. Thanks for featuring it! :D

  7. I was sent this, I really need to catch up on his other series...but giants

  8. Oh this is a new series, right? I have heard of this author and I think I've seen his previous series around. I hope you enjoy this book when you get the chance to read it!

    Have a wonderful weekend. =)
