    Have you/would you quit a series 3 books in..

    I won't give up on a series. I'll just "Hate read" that shit until it's done. It's only happened twice thus far that I wasn't into a series the entire time (Asiof and CoS), and I'm generally pretty selective about the series I choose to read, so I don't expect to ever quit a series I've begun.

    Crown of Stars by Kate Elliott

    So I just finished this series, and since I started this thread, I'll give my thoughts. The 7 books took me about 6 months to finish which is quite a long time for me. In particular, books 4-5 took 3 months. The first 3 books were awesome with great characters and a few contained story lines...

    Crown of Stars by Kate Elliott

    Figured I'd do a little update on this. I burned through the first 3 books of there series, but have definitely hit a wall in books 4 and 5, which combined top the scales at over 2,000 pages. So, I think everyone that's commented about this series has valid points. I like the overall idea of...

    Crown of Stars by Kate Elliott

    Liking the series this far, but book 4 at over 1,000 pages has been tough since I haven't had much time to read lately. Hoping to finish it of this week!

    Audiobooks, anyone?

    In the last 5 months I've started audio books to supplement my physical book reading, which is still my primary medium. Basically, I drive a lot since I'm in sales and I got bored of Pandora, and then sports talk. I started with Cycle Of Arrawn, and frankly hated it at first. I thought it was...

    Guy Gabriel Kay - Where to Start

    So you know how there are tons of authors out there that you've never heard of or rarely hear about, and then one week it seems everywhere you look people are talking about a specific one? Maybe it's just me lol. But it happened for me a few years back with Roger Zelazny and it seems to be...

    I don't want to respond too directly to your spoiler, but yes, I agree completely.

    Miles cameron - The Traitor Son Cycle

    Just finished Dread Wyrm. Gotta say the last two words of this book muttered by Alceus (sp?) gave me chills. Literally. Everything is going to be so much BIGGER in the next 2 books. Honestly I'm not even sure I can grasp what the scope will be with a certain someone still on the loose. Maybe...

    Crown of Stars by Kate Elliott

    I remember finding out my sister had a superweapon clone and it was quite the shock!! Looking forward to getting in a really good reading session of Prince of Dogs hopefully soon, as there are lots moving parts and when I take weeks off between reading sessions I have a harder time remembering...

    What Fantasy character do you hate most?

    From a pure evil standpoint I think it would be Joffrey, Regal, and Thorn. From an insufferable view I'd say Tan'elkoth and especially Kvothe - even the spelling of his name is obnoxious. As for a character that isn't bad, but I just found myself hating trading their POVs after a while, I'd...

    Miles cameron - The Traitor Son Cycle

    I've heard talk of an epic battle at the end of book 3, and man oh man is it setting up to be a doozy!

    Crown of Stars by Kate Elliott

    I'm sad I haven't had any time to read the last two weeks, as it seems you and I would've been at around the same place in the books if I'd been reading at my usual pace. As it is, I've only read 50 pages since the 10th, so I'm only about 270 pages into Prince of Dogs. Hoping to get to the...

    Miles cameron - The Traitor Son Cycle

    Keep in mind I'm listening to the book, so much of my spelling of names under the spoiler tags is probably off...

    Miles cameron - The Traitor Son Cycle
