More great news for Twelve Kings in Sharakhai today. The Barnes and Noble Sci-Fi and Fantasy Blog named it one of the Best of 2015 in its yearly list.

Twelve Kings in Sharakhai, by Bradley P. Beaulieu
Beaulieu launches his second epic fantasy trilogy (following The Lays of Anuskaya) with the story of 19-year-old Çeda, a gladiator in the fighting pits of Sharakhai, a desert kingdom ruled over by 12 immortal lords who live in luxury while their subjects must scrape to survive. Determined to avenge her mother, who was executed by the Twelve Kings, Çeda schemes and searches for a way to upset their ironclad rule—and comes to uncover hidden truths about the source of their power, and her own destiny, that could upset the balance of the entire world. Beaulieu’s intricate world-building and complex characters are quickly becoming the hallmarks of his writing, and if this opening volume is any indication, The Song of the Shattered Sands will be one of the next great fantasy epics. Read our review.

There are a ton of other great books on the list. Head on over to the B&N Sci-Fi and Fantasy Blog to check out the full list.
