Booklikes-opoly Turn 2 (April 17th)

Bank: $25

 

I successfully finished both of my books yesterday, so it's time to roll again.

 

I'm not sure whether I'll complete this one. At first I thought it was impossible, but I've identified 3 possibilities:

  

 

Ghosts of Tsavo by Vered Ehsani (195 pages)

- Takes places in Africa (description implies a cozy paranormal? mystery)

 

On Basilisk Station by David Weber (447 pages)

- Has Honor Harrington's weird telepathic cat pet on the cover (I think that counts as exotic, don't you?)

 

Under Heaven by Guy Gavriel Kay (635 pages)

- Takes place in an alternate history fantasy version of 8th century Tang Dynasty China (fits Asia?)

 

Does anyone want to chime in? Which of those books should I try to read?
