My Random Pick

Sister Sable (The Mad Queen Book 1)
By T. Mountebank
Publisher: Mountebank
Pages: 361
Genre: Fantasy


THE FIRST TENET OF THE WIND: Do not get caught.

Sister Sable has lived by the first tenet for seven years, but when an unexpected accident reveals the runaway nun to the clergy, she is forced to embrace the remaining four.


With the King’s spymaster committed to killing her, and his general regretting he didn’t, Sable enters a deadly game.

THE THIRD TENET OF THE WIND: The purpose of picking up a blade is to cut the enemy.

Scaring them is discretionary.

THE FOURTH TENET OF THE WIND: Have no preferred weapon.

Even so, she likes the axe.

THE FIFTH TENET OF THE WIND: Know the way of all professions.

Prophet, pilot, assassin, spy, Sable will need to call upon all she has learned to protect the King’s future from the past.

Sister Sable was a Goodreads discovery that appeared in my feed while browsing through popular fantasy. The synopsis has definitely drawn my interest. While I am sure it will be a while before I decide to tackle this book or series, it definitely sounds promising. Have you read this book or any titles from T. Mountebank? What is on your TBR this week?

  1. Welcome back! I hope you’re feeling better, Danielle. Your voice was missed. 🙂

    I haven’t heard of this book, or the author… that said, you do make a great point that the premise is really intriguing. With only 70 reviews, though, it could be hit or miss at this point! A single review makes a big difference in the rating at this point. You could tip the scales! Something to consider, at least.

        1. I couldn’t sleep last night and found myself going over which books I want to start next and realized there is simply too much. I am way too indecisive to have a TBR as large as I do. I am guilty of starting one book and then a few chapters in completely switching gears and hoping to another 😛

          1. I can so relate to this… too much choice equals headache! XD I’m the same… and then unfortunately some times the new discoveries get prioritized over the TBR pile books that were added in the past… and I just don’t think its fair XD XD XD
