    Star Wars episode 7: the Force Awakens

    Yup and Disney sure knows who to build a successful franchise and to build on top of a successful franchise so I'm expecting great things from both the new trilogy and the stand-alones.

    Damn it I need a VPN to trick you into thinking I live in the US.

    Jurassic Park 4 (Jurassic World)

    That was corny but cute. Bryce Howard Dallas outrunning a T-Rex though.... It was the best sequel by far and I really enjoyed it immensely. Waiting for the sequel and more BHD in a pink top :D

    Star Wars episode 7: the Force Awakens

    At best he could be a Ren or leader of the Knights of Ren but Kylo Ren in most likely Adam Driver I hope they don't go that way because he has faced temptation before and stayed true to the Light Side even to the point of bringing Vader back. He probably faded to stay away from the spotlight...

    October 2015 - What fantasy books are you reading?

    I'm not very fond of the Reckoners myself. I can relate to the biggest fan since I'm on the same boat but it's still nice to have the perspective that not everything he does is gold. Anywhoo I haven't been able to read in three days.

    Fran Wilde's Wild New Debut: Updraft

    Now that's a bold statement. Nice PR even though you may or may not be related to the author. Now cities that rise in the skies, flying between the Spires cities, flying machines and creatures that roam the sky. Damn it Jim Butcher just copycat that idea a few weeks back. Poor dead horse...

    Meh, just another site. Their monthly best is something though. Maybe the execution is wrong but it's not completely braindead He will join us or die. Vader

    Shannara Chronicles looks pretty good to me.

    Sure, Favreau is good but so is David Fincher and look at Alien3. As soon as the big wigs started messing with the movie it turned out like that. I'll still give it a try but with low expectations.

    Ok, decided to keep the Butcher groove. Just went 50 pages into Furies of Calderon, looks promising with the Romanesque setting.

    Sanderson vs GRRM

    This is what drove me away from the series I think he already mentioned he doesn't want someone else to finish the series in case he dies. And twice on Sundays

    The Aeronaut's Windlass by Jim Butcher

    Finally finished the book Loved some of the character: Rowl - is awesome, an excellent portrait of a cat (voiced by António Banderas) Grimm - Part Dresden, part Han Solo.

    October 2015 - What fantasy books are you reading?

    I couldn't agree more. Definitely on-board for the sequels. Onwards to either Furies of Calderon or Shadows of Self.
