    I'm about 25% into THE CURSE OF THE MISTWRAITH by Janny Wurts...and I feel like you all have been holding out a big secret from me.

    This book is stunning. Like the characters, the prose, the setting, the world building, the slow burn nature of the story all great...It feels like this is one of those big Fantasy authors I should have already read at this point.

    I was so impressed that I've gone ALL IN. I found MOST of the rest existing series on used-book sites and ordered every one of them.

    Ando, hopefully I'll catch up to your read-through at some point and I can join in the thread you started.

    So yeah, really impressed.


    Ahem:

    YOUR OWN THREAD :p

    2011?!

    Holy crapsnacks. Turns out, I never tried the sample chapters at the time when I said I was gonna. I have absolutely no memory of every creating a thread when I first heard of the series all those years ago. Should have searched I guess...

    Well, I take back the 'you've been holding out on me part'...still, really enjoying.

    If you wanted to res that old thread (I think someone already has) to post thoughts as you go skiing, I'd be super interested in following your read-through thread.

    I finished up Stonewielder last night. Thoughts on the reread thread.

    Now that that's done, I've two books that I'm focusing on and trying to finish before Battle Ground hits. The first is Parker's Sixteen Ways to Defend a Walled City. I'm about 10% into this one now and really enjoying it. There were some members that had dropped positive remarks about it a while ago and I'd picked it up on sale because of that. I also appreciated The Engineer Trilogy and The Company so this was something I was bound to crack into eventually.

    The other one is Harrow the Ninth. I finally broke and bought three more credits so I didn't have to wait until Jan for this.

    I finished last night. This is one of the very few Malazan novels that I haven't read more than once, and there was a ton in here that I had pretty much completely forgotten about.

    Ivanr, the conclusion of Rillish's arc, everything involving Bakune, and the loss of Corlo's leg.

    There were overall 3 highlights for this book for me though.
    1- the transformation of Kyle into a proper Adjunct to Greymane through the eyes of Suth.
    2- this has been said in this thread already, but Ipshank and Manask are fantastic. I really want more of them.
    3- Greymane's conclusion. He was one of the few old guard that I feel actually managed to have an ending that lives up to his legend.

    One thing in this book that I still don't care for is the (sorta) redemption of Leoman. I also feel unsatisfied with how it doesn't really address the separation of him and Dunsparrow.

    Really looking forward to Toll the Hounds, but I've 3 books to finish before I tackle that particular beast.

    So I live in the pacific Northwest (oregon). We have always had *some* fire but usually in the eastern part of the state which is a mix of plains and desert. The Willamette Valley however, has always been a very wet green forest. Unfortunately we are living in Climate Change. We've been down 15-20 inches of rain the last two years (and we're on a similar track for 2020) compared to what we've been historically from 2010 to 2017.

    This is not usual here.

    Finally to make it all worse, we are currently under federal leadership with a mentality of "west coast? That's not part of my country. Let it burn.". When you look at a fire map of the US, nearly a quarter of this country is on fire and our president hasn't even acknowledged it. Instead he's choosing to hold a meeting to share his Supreme Court shortlist of nominees.

    Hey Abyss have you read Max Gladstone's Craft Sequence? If you haven't, Audible Plus has the first book as a freebie. You should give it a listen.
