Blog Tour: Flesh and Fire

First of all, a big shout out to all of the Read-A-Thon cheerleaders! You guys definitely kept me going when the going got tough, and I assure you, the going did get tough. So thank you all for all of your wonderful comments.

Secondly, Flesh and Fire by Laura Anne Gilman is on a blog tour today, and Brizmus Blogs Books was supposed to be participating in that tour.
Unfortunately, the book didn't arrive in the mail until today. And as much as I love to read and would have liked to be able to post this one on time, I just couldn't finish it in a day. Be expecting a review soon!

Summary (from GoodReads):Fourteen centuries ago, all power was held by the prince-mages, who alone could craft the spell-wines. But the people revolted against harsh rule, and were saved by a demigod called Sin-Washer, who broke the First Vine, shattering the hold of the prince-mages.

In 1378 ASW, princes still rule, but Vinearts now make spellwines, less powerful than in days of old. Jerzy, a young slave, has just begun his studies to become a Vineart when his master uncovers the first stirrings of a plot to finish the work Sin-Washer began, and shatter the remains of the Vine forever. Only his master believes the magnitude and danger of this plot. And only Jerzy has the ability to stop it…before there are no more Vinearts left at all.

Now, while you're still feeling excited about this book from that awesome summary, go check out the other blogs on the tour:
