It can be difficult trying to find new book series worth plunging into, especially when there are so many out there. Yet among those worth trying out, I’d certainly list the Books of the Raksura. The Cloud Roads and The Serpent Sea were both great books and the latest in the series is no different. Martha Wells brings a level of quality to some very creative storytelling. Click here to read our full review of The Siren Depths.

This is the third book in the Books of the Raksura series and follows a shapeshifter named Moon as he finds the truth of his forgotten childhood.
