Year: 2022
Language: English
Type: Book
Publisher: Gollancz
Physical or Electronic: Physical
Note: Naida is living a lie. A peerless battlefield surgeon. A talisman for the army. A symbol of hope in an impossible, grinding war. A fraud. Society, led by the queen, has long held that the Esselrode people and their abilities are inherently, irredeemably evil, a truth which Naida has been brought up to believe. But as one of them, feeling compelled to use her powers again and again to heal those on the brink of death, it's hard to accept. It's even harder to live a lie, conflicted about her hidden identity, when the truth could save lives. Taken from the battlefield where she thrives to a court where her life hangs ever more precariously in the balance, Naida is about to learn that there are even greater secrets, and conspiracies, afoot - and that her dangerous truth could change the course of a nation.

Book:Heart of granite:[2017] Book
Author: Barclay, James
Year: [2017]
Language: English
Type: Book
Publisher: Gollancz
Physical or Electronic: Physical
Note: Originally published: 2016 This volume has a simple premise of nomadic fantasy nations warring over diminishing resources; it has a strong twist with a main character who uncovers a series of game-changing government lies; it combines politics, war and romance into a gripping story. This is also a bold proposal: our hero may have uncovered the truth, but that doesn't mean he can prove it. If he wants to save his team he may have to abandon them. If he wants to win the girl he'll have to persuade her not to turn her back on him. If he wants to prove the lies, he may have to risk a descent into madness. And all against the backdrop of a vicious daily war for survival.
