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

    I just started Tad William's Empire of Grass as it just came out today and arrived about an hour ago. This is the 2nd book in his Last King of Osten Ard sequel series. (Memory, Sorrow, And Thorn) I ended up not reading much of Path to Ascension (only 10% through the first book) as I just...

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

    I finally finished Deadly Quicksilver Lies last week or so. It only took me 2 months. lol I just haven't really been reading. I built a new PC so I've been gaming on that and then I've been binge watching some tv shows. (finally got around to watch Stranger Things, watched Santa Clarita Diet...

    Wheel of Time lands with Sony

    Agree with you completely. Liberal nonsense will ruin this series.

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

    I'm taking a breather between series and reading the Garret P.I. novel Deadly Quicksilver Lies. After I finish that I'll jump into Esslemont's Path to Ascendancy trilogy...wait a minute. I thought the 3rd book was coming out next month? Says April 2nd on amazon. I'll just wait to jump into...

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

    I have about 14% left of First's Lord's Fury left (when I'm reading it digital on kindle I go by % lol) in the Codex Alera Series to finish. I powered through most of the series until now. It's not that I'm not interested, but I've just been busy. I've really enjoyed the series thoroughly...

    It's December 2018: What fantasy book are you reading?

    I just started the 3rd book in in Butcher's Codex Alera series, Cursor's Fury. I'm really enjoying the series thus far. I'll have to give his Dresden Files a read some time in the future.

    It's November 2018: What fantasy book are you reading?

    I finished A Path of Coldness to Heart last night and now I've started Jim Butcher's Codex Alera series. This will be the first work of his I've read. I thought Wrath of Kings was pretty good. I'm still more of a Black Company fan than a Dread Empire fan, though. I enjoy Glen Cook's takes on...

    It's November 2018: What fantasy book are you reading?

    I'm about a quarter through A Path to Coldness of Heart in the Wrath of Kings trilogy. I'm annoyed with myself, though. I should have read the prequels and this sequel trilogy after I read the original trilogy 3 years ago. I had forgotten stuff in the meantime and there was no good reason why...

    It's October 2018: What fantasy book are you reading?

    I Finished a A Fortress in Shadow and a read Garrett PI novel and now I'm going to start Cook's, Wrath of Kings. I really enjoyed AFiS. You could really see how much he had grown as a writer since the original main series. I was going to read Gaiman's Neverwhere next instead, but I have the...

    It's October 2018: What fantasy book are you reading?

    I finished Port of Shadows last night. I'm not sure how I feel about it. It was a very odd and ambiguous novel in comparison to the rest of the Black Company stories. It was fun getting back with the old gang, but it lacks focus for much of the novel and it kind of comes off as if the entire...

    Bye for now, BFB.

    I had noticed traffic did seem to be a lot lower over the last year or so, but I didn't know all this. What a bummer.

    Glen Cook’s Glittering Stone (spoilers)

    It has actually been out for awhile to buy paperback, but it was only just released hardbound two months ago. And, Yes, you should read Heart of What was Lost. In the new series the Norns become fleshed out characters with their own pov chapters and that pretty much starts with the Heart of...

    It’s July 2018: What fantasy book are you reading?

    That's pretty much standard Robin Hobb. All her series start off on a slow burn as she builds her characters up. It makes the the later parts more engaging.

    It’s July 2018: What fantasy book are you reading?

    I just started King of Thorns. At about 85 pages in I'm liking it more than I did the first. I was kind of more interested in playing this video game I had at the time, though, so I really didn't give it as much attention as I probably should have and am doing now with the sequel.

    Pat Rothfuss' The Kingkiller Chronicle [spoilers] - the rambling review of an undecided reader

    I honestly don't get what people find so great about this series. I read the first two books and I found them massively overrated. His prose is top notch, but his hero is just so unlikable (everything just falls into his lap) and the story just goes nowhere. It just meanders around. If he...
