  2. Blurb for THE GOD IS NOT WILLING

    This was posted before, but deserves its own thread... WITNESS THE BLURB


    Quote



    Brought to you by Penguin.

    Many years have passed since three Teblor warriors brought carnage and chaos to the small lakeside settlement of Silver Lake. While the town has recovered, the legacy of that past horror remains, even if the Teblor tribes of the north no longer venture into the southlands. One of those three, Karsa Orlong, is now deemed to be a god, albeit an indifferent one. In truth, many new cults and religions have emerged across the Malazan world, including those who worship Coltaine, the Black-Winged God, and - popular among the Empire's soldiery - followers of the cult of Iskar Jarak, Guardian of the Dead.

    A legion of Malazan marines is on the march towards Silver Lake, responding to intelligence that indicates the tribes beyond the border are stirring. The marines aren't quite sure what they're going to be facing but, while the Malazan military has evolved and these are not the marines of old, one thing hasn't changed: they'll handle whatever comes at them. Or die trying

    Meanwhile, in the high mountains, where dwell the tribes of the Teblor, a new warleader has risen. Scarred by the deeds of Karsa Orlong, he intends to confront his god, even if he has to cut a bloody path through the Malazan Empire to do it. Higher in the mountains, a new threat has emerged, and now the Teblor are running out of time.

    The long feared invasion is about to begin. And this time it won't be three simple warriors. This time thousands are poised to flood the lands of the south. And in their way, a single legion of Malazan marines....

    It seems the past is about to revisit Silver Lake, and that is never a good thing....

  3. Abyssmal RHYTHM OF THE NIGHT I MEAN WAR reading thread...

    20 November 2020 - 04:55 PM

    Six chapters into the RHYTHM OF WAR earbook, I cannot resist doing this...
    Usual rules apply... this is my read, no spoilers for past where i'm at in the thread, go tart your own damn thread if you want to discus something else...
    SPOILERS unblocked and OK for all prior COSMERE related stuff.
    I have not yet read DAWNSHARD, i have it, i may get to it, i will say so if i do.

    Thus... my reavtions to the first six chapters or so...


    Wow... Gavilar was working with worldwalkers! Also, a TOTAL DICKHEAD.
    ...in retrospect both of these things make sense...

    Lindin's principles make my teeth itch.

    Kaladin, YAY!

    Kaladin whining... BOO.

    Kaladin throwing down with fused! YAY!

    New teleporting Fused Hulk SMASH PUNY KALADIN

    I love Syl and she gets all the best lines hee...

    Kaladin flirting with Fused Leshwy while trying to kill each other... um... ew... but... kind of fun...

    BRIDGE FOUR RIDES AGAIN AS A MASSIVE FLYING THING WOOOOOOOO

    Heh... Lift hits puberty, ground hits Lift...

    Dalinar and Navani, still awesome.

    Hi Renarin and your weird void spren!

    I can't quite decide whether this Shalan/Veil/Radiant thing is interesting or irritating. Not a bad plotline, regardless.

    ..even if the idea that Lady Sadeas just set herself up and ruler of the military camps and proceeded to 'tax' travelers and Dalinar just let that go is ridiculous.

    Navani lecture suggested zinc and brass to make fabrioles and control trapped spren... xref Mistborn, zinc and brass mess w emotions THIS IS NOT A COINCIDENCE!

    WTF IS MOASH DOING THERE SOMEONE STABBY HIM

    Did Lady Sadeas just suggest she knew about worldwalkers and Gavilar's dealing w them??? ...aaaaaaand now she's dead....

    NO KAL DON'T GO IN THE HOUSE IT'S A TRAP... oh shit... powers gone... good thing he's a badass w a spear anyways... five singers and a fused in like a paragraph after pages and pages of aerial foreplay with Leshwy... yes, that WAS awesome.

    Oh Aedolin, you still feel bad, we get it, move on.

    Unbound Worlds now redirects to the PRH website, so that Top 100 fantasy link no longer works. Here's a very similar one though: https://reedsy.com/discovery/blog/best-fantasy-series

    Because some mobile browsers don't resize and it makes the thread unreadable.

    Just out of curiosity, why is it necessary to spoiler big pics on this forum? They go off the page and don't cause the text to unwrap, and they get resized in mobile browsers. I don't mind doing it; just asking.

    There is a word to describe that pic, I just found one in the depths of my convulsing brain. It's DISTURBING but in a funny way.

    If you're keeping score, I think my conversation (in a WoT thread, I think) with that one noob-troll about how to get banned from Malazan is worth a few. (i.e. "I recommend telling Malaclypse he's a douchebag.")

    When the new order rises, lazy posters will be among the first to be purged.

    Good call with the spoilers tags. I didn't want to add them because it makes it extra work to read posts :D
