**NOTE: I've pulled my last post from the UK Reprint thread on this to use as a starter for a main thread to discus this series.**

Started Book 2, ACES HIGH, last night and read the first 60 pages or so.

More good stuff.

Spoiler



And for some reason I put this one down/stopped reading it at the time (probably for some other book that came out that I wanted to devour), and it went back into the ToRead pile...and it's taken me goddamned 5 years to get back into it. What an idiot I am.

Anyways, halfway through ACES HIGH now, and it's really jiving along great. The entire Modular Man / Egyptian Mason Cult / Bag Lady / Swarm Mother plot line that's been the majority of the book so far has been utterly excellent.

Croyd is still one of the most interesting characters, but I'm also really into the dynamic of Modular Man and his selfish asshole creator too.

Haven't met Water Lily yet, who graces the cover.

I have the next three volumes in the ToRead pile (JOKER'S WILD, ACES ABROAD, and DOWN & DIRTY) ready to go was well. With some 24 books in the series I have no idea how long this will take me to read, but I'm really enjoying the ride.

Also, can we talk about how gorgeous the new TOR covers for this series have been?

And if HBO wants to keep its sweet GRRM audience after GoT finishes...this is SOOOOOOO the series to adapt.

SIDEBAR: There is a new volume coming out that details the Wild Cards virus affect on Britain, and Mark Lawrence has a story in it!
