    Still going on the WoT rereread with The Great Hunt.



    Doing the same wonder how far I will get this time. :D

    Also re-reading The Fall of Dragons at work the Red Knight series simply is awesome.

    So far bk 5 is very, very good.



    Probably starting it and then book six next week :)

    Currently on Citadel (The Palladium Wars book 3) which is continuing with some lowkey military science fiction in a way I find charming.

    Also very very slowly reading The God is not Willing in paper.

    Also re-listening to the Red Knight series at work on the Dread Wyrm right now and the middle party needs to be there and it is well written but well it's my least favorite part of the series but it surely makes the bad guys into people you hate.

    Good recommendation was just the right thing to read right now. To me it sits dead center between Dresden and Sandman Slim in style and content.

    Already into the third book, these are short, easy and fun reads.


    Just bought the book 5 earbook. Will hit that once am done w FEED.


    Up to the fourth book now and will be getting book 5 and 6 soon. Think it is unusually well planned and very nicely executed.

    But taking a break reading some military sf in between with Aftershock which is really very low key for the genre and I like it.

    Stephen Blackmoore came to my attention on twitter because Peter (14 THE FOLD EX-HEROES) Clines posted praise and Blackmoore responded with something funny and self-deprecating and lately i find a lot of new authors this way.

    I just finished the first four books in the series in earbook - DEAD THINGS, BROKEN SOULS, HUNGRY GHOSTS and FIRE SEASON. Each is novella short, about 5-6 hours. The character is engaging... he does the hardcase thing but underlying that he's a mess. The magic 'system' is not explored in huge detail, varies all the times, and while it's inconsistent there's usually a reason for it. The action scenes are a blast (and/or shot, stab, bite) especially in earbook.

    It's faster than Carey's FELIX CASTOR, not as sheer Hollywood kaboom as Butcher's DRESDEN, darker than Aaronovich's PETER GRANT, and the protag is a bigger mess than Jacka's ALEX VERUS. If you're fed up with any of those, i wouldn't grab this just now. If you want more with enough variety and originality to hold your interest, i reco.

    Books 5 and 6 are out, apparently 7 will finish the series. Will be getting them all.

    At last got my hands on The God is Not Willing but it will be a slow read 50 or so pages a day will have to do.

    Also starting Ten Arrows of Iron on the earbook front now that work starts tomorrow which will likely go a lot quicker.
