I absolutely adored the first book in this series, it’s one of those books that captured my attention right away. I read an absurd amount of books every year and it causes a feeling of repetition sometimes if the storyline or worlds are too similar to one another. This one felt completely fresh and was an absolute delight to read. I am ALL about sarcastic and endearing characters and it wasn’t long into the book I had realized I had found a new favorite character in Caltro.
For anyone who wants to read about a darker world, but also wants a world that’s balanced out by a light-hearted and funny character – this is your book! I haven’t read the second in the series purely due to time constraints. It’s extremely high on my TBR and I’ll get to it as soon as humanly possible. What’s awesome about the way Mr. Galley is releasing these books is it’s not a long wait to continue on with the series. The first in the trilogy and last in the trilogy are releasing within a few months of each other, which is so awesome 😀
This book releases on March 14th!!! So close!

My 5 Star Review of Chasing Graves – Book 1
The endgame has begun.
The battle for the emperor’s throne grows ever fiercer. The City of Countless Souls cowers behind locked doors as the whims of the downtrodden and the powerful bring the great game of Araxes to its chaotic conclusion.
With the soulblade at his side and magic in his soul, Caltro’s freedom is almost within reach. But as Temsa reign of murder clashes with Widow Horix’s plans, the locksmith’s fate becomes all the more entwined with the needs of dead gods, the Cult, and vengeful royals. Caltro will soon realise he fights not just for his own redemption, but for the salvation of the entirety of the Far Reaches.
While the Core Districts descend into chaos, debts left unpaid in the desert haunt Nilith’s long-awaited arrival in the city. A new foe is hunting her through the streets, an enemy with enough power to rival even that of the Cloudpiercer.
And yet all their struggles pale in comparison to the dark omen that spreads through the Arctian Empire all the while:
The River Nyx is drying up.
