I don’t actually have a book that fits this prompt, so I’m going to make a “stretch” choice, since the river of death is an important setting throughout the Old Kingdom series.
Again, this is a “stretch” choice because I wouldn’t call this a swashbuckling adventure, but Charlotte does spend the whole book on a ship sailing to America, so at least in her mind, it’s like she’s on a high seas adventure.
One of the aspects of this book that was done really well was the atmosphere. It definitely felt creepy and only got creepier as the narrative delved into the mystery.
This book hardly takes a moment to catch it’s breath! It basically starts of near where the first book ends and then just keeps going. It certainly made it hard to put down.
This is probably the only book I’ve read so far set in southern USA, and I honestly don’t remember how south they are. Dread Nation is more of a zombie book than a book about the south, but it counts for this prompt.
You’d think with the amount of fantasy I read that I’d have a whole lot of choices, but I’m realizing how few actually include, with any prevalence, a castle! Somehow, I’ve managed to mostly avoid this age-old trope, weirdly! The castle in GMoSaG doesn’t really play an important part, unfortunately, but it does feature prominently.
I’m not sure what the definition of whimsical is in this case, but this was a quirky, fun contemporary that I’d recommend for people who want to read something light-hearted and silly!
To be totally honest, these prompts are really making me work to find a match! And to be honest again, I can’t entirely remember if they’re actually on a mountain or not…but I vaguely remember them having to drive upwards to get to the house.
The first book is the #ownvoices fantasy version of the Sino-Japanese war, from the Chinese POV, and the magic is rooted in Chinese mythology. It’s really fascinating and Kuang does a great job at making the story both based in actual history and based on unique world-building.
There could not have been a more perfect prompt for this book. “A fast-paced space opera” should be the literal tagline!
