    I've had to split this into two as you cannot post too many quote blocks…

    Part one:

    I finished Red Queen's War a fair few weeks ago now but I'm in the midst of mania so it's hard to put together a long coherent post, I've put this off enough now though and I've finally got some time today to give it a shot… this is probably going to be a LONG ramble so beware!!

    I really do love this series… it's not just the characters/brolove that makes these books so good, it's the layering and depth to the setting and story that moves them into the special category. It's easy to miss at first glance and on your first read but when read after The Broken Empire series you notice just how much RQW expands on what we know so far, on how it adds to the history of the world first set out in TBE and how it gives so many epic nods to the first trilogy.

    I could do a massive post on all these cool nods and I think I will next time I read the series but that wasn't the purpose of reading this trilogy, it was all about the future connections but just a few examples that I enjoyed are…

    SPOILERS FOR ALL MARK LAWRENCE BOOKS…

    I finished The Girl and the stars over the weekend and I loved it. I do have some thoughts on Taproot and Abeth.




    Hooray! Great to hear.

    AND Amazon price guarantee thing means I got it at a lower price as well.

    Good news for Mark, he is no longer obliged to send me his own personal copy, signed, buuuuuuuuuuttttttt if he wants to send me something signed anyway I'll not complain :whistle:




    I was at the post office with your book when I saw yours had arrived. Dodged a bullet!
