Today I am over the moon to be bringing you a review of ‘Oh, That Shotgun Sky’ by Sarah Chorn, a novella in her Song of Sefate series which began last year with ‘Of Honey and Wildfires’ (which I reviewed HERE). Oh, That Shotgun sky is a bridging novella set in the immediate aftermath of the events at the end Of Honey and Wildfires, and laying some groundwork for Glass Rhapsody which is due out later this year. Glass Rhapsody (Songs of Sefate #2) was already on my list of most anticipated sequels for 2021 and this novella was an unexpected, and most welcome surprise.
Ever since I read Seraphina’s Lament, Sarah Chorn’s debut, she has has rocketed straight to the top of my favourite and must-buy authors, and Of Honey and Wildfires cemented that when it came out. So my year was made when I learned there was going to be more books this year, and I leapt at the chance to read an arc of Oh, That Shotgun Sky (in fact I was about ready to sell my soul for the chance), and this novella is certainly a favourite for 2021.
You can find the cover reveal, and read the first chapter for yourself over at Fantasy Book Critic. And for more news about Songs of Sefate, and Sarah’s writing in general check out her latest post across at Bookworm Blues. (My most anticipated list might have changed just a little…)
Oh, That Shotgun Sky also features beautiful character sketches by Sen Qin, and it was lovely to the characters being brought to life, and I hope that you will take the time the time to check out the artist’s work (HERE).
