The Cephalopod CoffeeHouse: July
I am currently in the process of reading more than a few books this month but of the ones I finished this one was by far my favourite. Kay never comes to mind when I speak of Canadian authors, which strikes me as being weird because I have never read anything of his that I didn't love. A Song For Arbonne is no exception to that rule.
Set in a matriarchal country enamored with troubadours it starts with a woman on her way to visit someone when she is "taken hostage" by someone who turns out to be her paramour. Then the story jumps forward and changes characters and you her story bit by bit which is both slightly annoying and absolutely brilliant.
Overall I would say it's a great read if you like historical fantasy type books. If you want to check out what the other bloggers read this month head to The Armchair Squid where the list lives. Happy reading everybody!
