Charlie Hunnam Plays Lead Role In New 'King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword' Official Trailer

Cinematic adaptations, renditions, and remakes are a hit in this day and age. That is why Warner Bros wants to grab this almost fool-proof formula to make blockbuster hits. The studio has released a new trailer of one of their next outing, King Arthur: Legend of the Sword, filled with epic action, thrilling and mysterious storyline, heavy-duty cast and Led Zeppelin’s Babe I’m Gonna Leave You. It's no question that they are gearing-up for another franchise...

King Arthur: Legend of the Sword

This Guy Ritchie-directed movie stars Charlie Hunnam as the titular King Arthur, Jude Law as Vortigern, Astrid Berg├Ęs-Frisbey as Mage, Djimon Hounsou as Bedivere; Aidan Gillen as Goosefat Bill; and Eric Bana as Arthur’s father, King Uther Pendragon.

Cover Reveal: An Echo Of Things To Come (The Licanius Trilogy Book 2) By James Islington

One of my recent book haul is The Shadow of What Was Lost by James Islington. I haven't started reading it yet. I was easily convinced to buy it because of the quote at the back of the book: "Love The Wheel of Time? This is about to become your new favorite series." - B&N SF & Fantasy Blog. I love Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time series so it is a no-brainer decision if the blurb is to be relied upon.

I was glad to hear that this book is the first of a trilogy called The Licanius Trilogy. And I was even more excited that I have pre-ordered the second book in the series called An Echo of Things to Come. Just recently the official cover of the sequel has been unveiled. Thanks to Dominick Saponaro for this simplistic illustration and Lauren Panepinto for the continuity-inducing jacket design.

Check the official cover of An Echo of Things to Come by James Islington.

An Echo of Things to Come by James Islington

Synopsis

The second book in a glorious new fantasy trilogy by the next major force in commercial epic fantasy.

In the wake of the devastating attack on Ilin Illan, an amnesty has been declared for all Augurs - finally allowing them to emerge from hiding and openly oppose the dark forces massing against Andarra. However as Davian and his new allies hurry north toward the ever-weakening Boundary, fresh horrors along their path suggest that their reprieve may have come far too late.

In the capital, Wirr is forced to contend with assassins and an increasingly hostile Administration as he controversially assumes the mantle of Northwarden, uncovering a mystery that draws into question everything commonly believed about the rebellion his father led twenty years ago. Meanwhile, Asha begins a secret investigation into the disappearance of the Shadows, determined to discover not only where they went but the origin of the Vessels that created them - and, ultimately, a cure.

And with time against him as he races to fulfill the treacherous bargain with the Lyth, Caeden continues to wrestle with the impossibly heavy burdens of his past. Yet as more and more of his memories return, he begins to realise that the motivations of the two sides in this ancient war may not be as clear-cut as they first seemed...

An Echo of Things to Come by James Islington will be released on August 22, 2017.

Brandon Mull's Final 'Five Kingdoms' Book Gets A Flashy New Cover, And Official Title And Release Date

After a long hiatus due to conflicts with the publications of Dragonwatch and this book, the final book in the Five Kingdoms series by Brandon Mull is finally coming to an end. From the beginning we already know that this is a five-book series, despite the typo that the author made on his note at the very first book in the series.

Five Kingdoms, all encompassed in five books, will conclude with Time Jumpers. I bet this will play a great part on how Cole and his friends will ever get back to our dimension (or if they ever wanted to at the end of the story). The cover has just been released as well as a teasing synopsis.

Check out the cover of Time Jumpers (Five Kingdoms # 5) by Brandon Mull.

Time Jumpers by Brandon Mull

Synopsis

Trapped in a world where magic is powerful and dreams are real, Cole’s epic adventure comes to a close in book five of the New York Times bestselling “fanciful, action-packed adventure” series (Publishers Weekly, starred review), from the author of the Fablehaven and Beyonders series.

Cole and his friends are pushed to the limit in this finale to the bestselling Five Kingdoms series.

Will they finally be able to restore magic to the world of the Outskirts and find their way back home?

Time Jumpers by Brandon Mull will be released on October 24, 2017.
