Sad. Only one more class this spring :/ And no summer classes this year! Booo.

Winter came back. Just for a day. Nothing new, last year it snowed in May. But hey look, first spring flower ;)
But more snow promised on Monday.


Stop me if you’ve heard this one. A thief, a candlemaker, an ex-mercenary, and a pig farmer walk into a trap…and what happens to them is no joke. When Riyria is hired to retrieve a jester’s treasure, Royce and Hadrian must match wits with a dwarf who proves to be anything but a fool. Difficult choices will need to be made, and in the end those who laugh last do so because they are the only ones to survive.

This is a standalone short story of 7,200 words, originally published in the Unfettered anthology. No prior knowledge of The Riyria Revelations or The Riyria Chronicles is required to enjoy it to its fullest, making this a perfect introduction for new readers or a chance for Riyria veterans to spend a little more time with old friends. The Jester is a story of adventure, bonds of friendship, and a recognition that the choices we make dictates the future we find. 

My thoughts:
This was a freebie on audible. I must say I have started to like audio books, but they are so damn expensive. Nope, wont buy that when print is cheaper. I do not even buy hardback! I wait a year on the PB instead.

Right. A short story with Royce and Hadrian in a tight spot. There is humour, and a good little adventure. I can't say a lot really. They were like stuck in a cave most of the time trying to get out. It was good, and I have missed these guys.

  1. oh no more snow!!! So ready for the warmth right? Love your progress for the week. Isn't yoga great? I always feel more centered and balanced.

    1. Yoga is awesome. Last class was this week, sigh :/

  2. Oh man, look at that snow! It's in the 80 F here right now in TX. Can't even imagine.

  3. Sorry about the snow, but that's a lovely picture of the flowers peeking through the brush on the ground! And I'm glad to hear you're really taking to audiobooks. Yes, they can be really expensive, which is why I get most of mine from the library. Now if only they can build up their audio collection. I grabbed The Jester as a freebie too, but have not listened yet.

    1. It melted really fast. I woke up to a lot, I went to bed with nothing left.

      The library would be a good idea but, those big ass cds, hell no. And those you can borrow online, well let's just say there are no English ones there´´

  4. Sorry you class is ending, but wow, you are so faithful with your exercising.

    Glad you found a freebie on Audible. I wait for their big sales to get books or buy the ebook and get the Whispersync for a few bucks more to get the audio, but yeah, it's expensive.

    1. I try my best :D But I heard a rumour there will be less classes next year. Which sucks!

      I have a few sync books that I got free, but now I am in a pickle cos the program needs updating and I wont update to Win 10. Sigh. All those books

  5. Snow???? Goodness gracious, Linda! And yet your exercising routine goes on as undisturbed and faithfully as ever!! You are simply unbelievable (though in a very, VERY good way, obv) I like the sounds of this little Audible freebie - I never seem to find any freebies :( And yes, audiobooks are SO expensive! Have a good week <3

    1. Hehe, yes snow. That is Finland :)

      Aww, thank you! You ca my biggest fan- I always feel awesome after your visit!

  6. I love the pics. Tell Winter to go away!

  7. humor and adventure sounds good in this one

  8. Oh no...I hope you don't get anymore snow...though the pictures are so pretty! I just got back to doing yoga. Haven't been to a class, but have been doing it at home every morning...what a difference it makes, though. Hope you have a great week!!!

    1. I am way too lazy to do yoga at home. Sigh, I was I would just do it.

  9. Weather's been weird for us as well. But I'm glad it's looking like we're bound to get sunshine and warm temperatures soon.

    Happy reading!

  10. I agree...audios are so expensive, but they sometimes can be worth it. LOL

  11. Did you pick up the other short story that's free on audible? It was good too. I do miss these guys.

  12. I have become an audiobook addict and OMG they are expensive. Glad you found a free one.
