THE SHADOW OF THE GODS (THE BLOODSWORN SAGA #1) BY JOHN GWYNNE
The Shadow Of The Gods by John Gwynne is the first book in The Bloodsworn Saga.

I wasn't sure what I was getting myself into when I picked this up, other than the general idea I had after reading the synopsis. The book blew me away with the epicness of the story and…

The House Of Styx by Derek Künsken is the first novel in the Venus Ascendant sci-fi series set in the churning clouds of Venus. Künsken creates a story of survival and family values.

While the rest of the world has taken over other planets in the solar system, the Québécois descendants have managed to inhabit Venus and make a new home.
