I've done the draw, and ended up with:

Pirates
tavern wenches
army

Let's have it!

Silvana (silvaubrey) Yikes I don't know any grimdark with all these themes in one but at least I have the Dragon Legacy to read in November.

Looking forward to see the nominations, though.

I'm going for Where Loyalties Lie by Rob J. Hayes. Fingers crossed it contains at least one tavern wench!

That was going to be mine so I'll second it.

Got a few suggestions here if anyone is looking for some nomination ideas!

Some don't quite qualify as GD, but in this circumstance I think we can afford to be a little lax on the rules. As long as its fantasy and contains at least two of the 3 themes, I'm happy. :)

Jokoloyo | 2 comments Pirates, tavern wenches, army....
I am thinking Retribution Falls, but maybe it is not a grim dark enough. It has pirates, wenches, and army for sure.

The Pyrates? Sorry, I can't help it. It is a humor pirate story.

The Walrus And The Warwolf is my second nomination.

Scott  Hitchcock (lostinthewarrenofchaos) | 89 comments Even though I've read it I'll nominate Hope and Red the first book in the Empire of Storms series. That and book two Bane and Shadow were both 5* efforts for me. Book three Blood and Tempest comes out Nov-21st and I'll be starting it on opening day.

It's got pirates, ninjas, tavern wenches, prostitutes mixed with a high society element that encompasses a steampunk era. I would consider the book/series borderline GD but it's more gritty than anything else. Just a raw wrong side of the tracks feel.

Silvana (silvaubrey) Retribution Falls is fantastic, great and memorable characters. Even though it is not GD it has some grimdark moments too. A closer comparison maybe to Lies of Locke Lamora since it also has some humor.

Retribution Falls is fine as a nomination, but you only get one nomination.
