    In Cradle news, book 9 was just announced with a release date of April 6. Yeah, he was supposed to be taking a sabbatical.

    This Will Wight Unsouled book has a terrible beginning. I'm generally familiar with the "manhua" phenomenon and read a few of the big ones to get a sense of what they are.

    Wight is trying to do that and it's not working at all for the first 50 pages. I'll give it another 50 pages, but if no improvement happens, I'm dropping it.



    I've heard that UNSOULED is a really blah book, even from Wight fans, and the worst in the series, and the rest get much better.

    ---------------------

    Finished Tapestry Book 2 (THE SECOND SIEGE) last night and I clearly forgot how dark that series gets so quickly. Excellent second volume though.

    ---------------------

    Started Will Wight's first Elder Empire book OF SHADOW AND SEA and HOLY CRAP it's really good so far. Granted I'm only 25% into it, but the concepts, the pacing, the characters? All fantastic. A unique world, and a really compelling plot line.

    Oh, and as to Abyss's curiosity about reading order of the 6 books. There are two main characters on opposing sides of the world/conflict who each have 3 books telling their story over those three books from their POV in the world...and so....reading order is TECHNICALLY:

    OF SHADOW AND SEA (Shera's book - assassins) and then OF SEA AND SHADOW (Calder's book - pirates/sea)

    then onto OF DARKNESS AND DAWN (Shera), and then OF DAWN AND DARKNESS (Calder)

    then OF KILLERS AND KINGS (Shera), and finally OF KINGS AND KILLERS (Calder)

    Now, I expect you COULD read all of one POV and then all of the other POV, but you would likely spoil surprises and stuff? Not totally sure. Or you could flip the order and read a Sea book first and so on flipping the order.

    Anyways, unique.


    Have you read the Traveler's Gate trilogy? So far I've read the first 2 plus the short story collection, and it's the only Wight I've read so far. It's pretty good and I especially enjoyed the second book. The magic system is like Sanderson's take on Malazan's warrens.

    Wow I thought mine was bad--probably a few dozen for me. I blame reddit and self published authors for their cheap deals.

    Anyone heard from BK lately? It's not like him to go for this long without posting about his reading progress (or lack thereof)

    haven't posted here in a while...I've totally run out of fantasy series I'm interested in and are kind of desperate. My favourite authors are taking their sweet time with their books and Goodreads is so not helpful. So..
    Does anyone have experience with the Chronicles of the Unhewn Throne books? Are they worth reading and on what level compared to MBotF? Any other good, modern series you could recommend?If I should put this into a separate thread, please tell me *bow*

    I'm on the last book right now and I really enjoy the series. The scope is not close to Malazan, but more typical for an epic fantasy trilogy. The first book is quite narrow with most of the time spent on two characters in a training academy type setting. I didn't think that was something I wanted to read about again, but the storytelling is quite good. I'd say Blood Song is a good comparison for the first book.

    Regarding the "stupidity" that people criticize the books for, most of it is the characters working off of limited information and not sharing what they know with each other. IMO their decisions make sense and they have good reasons to not trust each other. Then there are characters that they should know NOT to trust but they do anyway, but again I think sort of it makes sense.

    Is Evansville where USI is? I don't know my southern Indiana geography that well. Northern Indiana geography either, for that matter!

    Just north of Noblesville. You grow up in Southern Indiana or going to school down there for the Aces?
