OMG – Friday couldn’t come fast enough!  This week has been such a madhouse between my day job and managing the social media for the up and coming self publishing company Visual Adjectives.  I’ve also been schooling myself on the writing biz by listening to some great podcasts (which I promise to post about next week so hold tight!)

If you’re new to Follow Friday, this is a weekly meme hosted by Parajunkee’s View.  Make sure to check it out if you want to participate!

This week’s question:
What are you currently reading? Basically, what book is that?
Well I just finished Punish the Sinners by John Saul this week (which was wicked awesome and I promise to review it!)  So now I’m reading the Lord Protector’s Daughter by L.E Modesitt.  I’ve haven’t read anything from this author before but I’m a few pages in and I’m already intrigued by the setting descriptions alone.  So I’m enjoying it so far!
Here’s some info about the book, courtesy of Goodreads!
The Lord-Protector's Daughter (Corean Chronicles)

The Lord-Protector’s Daughter is a standalone fantasy novel that takes place in Tempre, the capital city of Lanachrona on Corus, the world of Modesitt’s Corean Chronicles. Mykella, the eldest daughter of the Lord-Protector of Lanachrona, discovers that someone is diverting significant sums of money from her father’s treasury. One of the ancient soarers appears to Mykella, telling her that she must go to the antique stone Table in the cellars of the Palace and find her Talent in order to save her land and her world.
From there, matters become more perilous. There are attempts to remove Mykella and her sisters from Tempre by marrying them off to lords in neighboring lands, and fatal and near fatal accidents occur to members of her family and trusted retainers. While Mykella develops a solid idea of who stands behind it all, every attempted solution is used to discredit her. How can she save their father and land?

Have any of you guys read it? Am I in for a treat?
