EDIT: It's all over!
King of Thorns (49.3%) [it won on the Facebook likes with 500 vs 498, but lost on tweets]
The Blinding Knife (50.7%)
Huge thanks to everyone who voted my way for helping me punch above my weight!
Now I guess I should go read some Weeks! (got his first trilogy - wife & boys really liked it)
So Bookspot have been running a death match tournament and 64 contestants have reduced through bloody battle to 2. Since this battle is clearly a key index of popularity (with low-selling authors like Joe Abercrombie + Red Country crashing out in round 1) it's vital that King of Thorns triumphs!
The only impediment to this lofty goal is the small yet enormous obstacle presented by one Brent Weeks. A man who has set his eyes firmly on the prize!
Let's break this down, people.
Here are the numbers (Amazon ratings for the books, twitter followers for the authors, goodreads ratings for the authors)
So, this is a battle like David vs Goliath, molehill vs mountain, of Beauty (me of course) vs the Beast! ... dare I say it... Underdog vs The Baddie.
This is one of those million to one shots that have to come off. For King of Thorns not to win would be a crime of Weeksian proportions!
Now more than ever before friends, fans, minions, flying monkeys, and... others, I need your votes.
