    It's August 2019: What fantasy book are you reading?

    I've finished with it yesterday. Loved the original trilogy( I think that I gave it something like 9.5/10 overall), I'd maybe give Iron Gold 6/10 if I'm to be really generous, I disliked the Lyria and Ephron chapters with passion, Darrow and Lysander were ok. For Dark Age I'd give it 8.8/10...

    Wheel of Time lands with Sony

    Deleting a name-calling sentence from a post I'd understand. Deleting my whole 500-1 000 words posts where I make legit remarks towards politically-ridden articles linked in the thread I don't and won't tolerate. You've lost yourself a forum poster here. Have a great time in the forum, everyone...

    It's August 2019: What fantasy book are you reading?

    Finished The Family Trade by Charles Stross. Portal fantasy... kind-of. It's concentrated on economics and social structures. It's fine. Not as dynamic as I expected it to be and the first book didn't have a well-defined end, but it's 6.4/10 decent and works as something on the side. I don't...

    Wheel of Time lands with Sony

    Fify. I don't want to get into it to be honest. I get it that those people live in an echo-chamber where making Perrin, Nynaeve and Egwene black is some sort of moral victory in their minds and they're green-lighted to do so by people sharing the same politics. In my mind keeping true to the...

    Wheel of Time lands with Sony

    Get woke, go broke. I hope it fails, so that we could have someone who actually cares about story-telling take it and make it into a good TV series 20 years from now. Amazon can go fuck themselves.

    It's August 2019: What sci-fi book are you reading?

    I'm currently 25% into Dark Age by Pierce Brown. The post is so much better paced than the first one.

    It's August 2019: What fantasy book are you reading?

    Finished The Empire of Ashes by Anthony Ryan. I remember complaining about the narrator change after book 1 - boy was I wrong! Steve West is a magnificent, magnificent man who've managed to put even more soul into this series! I was pissed about them replacing Steven Brand with mr. West, since...

    It's August 2019: What fantasy book are you reading?

    I'm like 75% finished with the 3rd book in his latest trilogy and it's actually decent. The first book was still the best so far, but the 2nd and the 3rd are a much better continuation than what he did with his Raven's Shadow trilogy, so I'm cautiously optimistic. :) Plus the new book looks like...

    It's August 2019: What fantasy book are you reading?

    Thanks, mate! He is actually in my TBR for his historical fiction as well, although I have different brackets of reading so to speak, things to read while working and things to read while relaxing, and his for the latter pile, but I'm behind on so many awesome things there... While for my...

    It's August 2019: What fantasy book are you reading?

    Just finished Awaken Online: Unity. For the 3 people and their dog that follow this series in this forum - it's legit passable. Something like 7.4/10 kind of passable. The sub-plots were obvious from the Moon, but they were executed in a decent guilty pleasure kind of way. Although you'd still...

    It's July 2019: What fantasy book are you reading?

    The third book has been the best so far, maybe the 4th was good as well, but yeah... definitely a slow start and an uninspired cast of characters. It's just too childish and the fact that 75% of the characters are females who refuse to move the plot forward by following on their own logic more...

    It's July 2019: What fantasy book are you reading?

    Just finished with Age of Legend by Michael J. Sullivan. I feel cheated, or disappointed at the least. This was half a story pretending to be a full story. Despite being a 4th book in a series, it reads more like a prequel, ended on a cliffhanger, without resolving anything in the book's main...
