Topic Interesting Book Series Cancelled :(
Edited by Dexterworgan on 10/19/11 1:16 AM (PDT)
Recently, within the last few months, I picked up a book series called the Twenty Palaces. The series is about an ex-con who is recruited into a mysterious and lethal magical society that's sole responsibility is preventing the "unenlightened" from discovering/using magic and possibly summoning impossible things into this world.
I've been really enjoying it, as the series is like a nice horror-noir combo. The protagonist feels like a normal person and the author doesn't pull any punches when it comes to evil stuff happening. The secret society in the book is actually a secret and one that, three books in, the protagonist knows little about.
Unfortunately though, I read a few days ago that the book series was cancelled though due to poor sales. In a world where generic butt kicking supernatural girl#23 is still being written and selling, it's a bit irritating to me that something a bit original has fallen on it's face.
While I don't believe anything will restore the book series anytime soon, I encourage you guys to check it out if you haven't read it already. It reminds me a bit of the Dresden Files, but a bit more adult in content.
