    Oh, and Karsa: here's a link to the Lawrence moderated Grimdark listing.

    Cool, thanks!

    Now I might have to give Beyond Redemption a try. I can't believe it is grimdarker than Bakker's work. I just can't. And if he indeed manages that (without just being ridiculous, mind you), he probably deserves a spot higher on the success-ladder ^^

    I can tell you, the so called German that is in there is the exact reason I never tried it. As a native speaker, the use of those words is just so jarring, it hurts. If you have to use words from a second language, at least do your research how those words should be used appropriately!

    On another note: a grim-dark meter via Lawrence?! Nice! And you want to tell me, this work is grimmer than R. Scott Bakker's work?!!! I don't believe you!
  3. In Topic: Powder Mage vs. Shadow Campaigns : which one is better and why?

    Thank you all for your feedback!
    I guess I will start with PM then.

    Miles Cameron was already in my "have to take a look" file with his Traitor's Son series, but in that case I will also take a look at his new series. So thanks for bringing that up! And feel free to mention other fitting series (especially if you think those are better than the two compared here)!

    Hey Cause, long time no "see"!
    Good to see some of the old guard are still around ;)

    Care to elaborate a bit? No spoilers, of course. But what did you like with those two series? What did Wexler do better than McClellan? Or is it just the ending that spoiled Powder Mage (no spoilers!) for you?
  5. In Topic: Are there any worthy inheritor(s) to the depth and scope of Malazan?

    I'm starting this series soon (first book is wining its way to me from Amazon), but not starting with the Sun Sword on...

    So this is interesting, Michelle (Sagara) West (who, coincidentally is a Torontonian, as is GGK) has three series that interweave time periods but all take place in the same universe (with a varying set of reading orders)...the Sacred Hunt Duology (which she wrote first), The Sun Sword Series (6 books), and The House War series (8 books when it's completed in June of this year).

    The reading order (or at least the one I've chosen to follow) is:

    House War 1-3 (Starting with THE HIDDEN CITY)
    Sacred Hunt 1 & 2
    The Sun Sword 1-6
    House War 4-8

    And Abyss, are you sure you're not thinking of her other Series the "Cast In" books which seem like Urban-Yet-Alt-World-Fantasy? Sun Sword, and the others don't seem very YA to me.

    Anyways, I'll chime in once I've started, but I've heard this whole series/world is very in depth, so I can see Karsa recommending it.

    Plus, it's always nice to support a local author.

    This reading order is the in-world timeline. The events in chronological order, more or less.

    BUT...there is something to be said to read series as "the author wrote it"! Just the pure fun of reading House War 1-3 when you already lived with some of those characters through some hard times is...honestly...priceless. YMMV, of course. But I'd recommend to read it like this (aka the publishing order) :

    Sacred Hunt 1 & 2
    Sun Sword 1 - 6
    House War 1 - 8

    And yes, let us know what you think! Although i might not be able to read on if you start spoiling House War because I'm still reading those (I am somewhere around book 3).

    Wow, I only just noticed you've been a member longer than all except the very oldest! But you've kept under the radar - nice.
