Journeyed there and back again
Started Many Are The Dead by Anthony Ryan, a Raven's Shadow prequel novelette. Pretty good through the first half.
The other prequel story was enjoyable, I've read it last year.
On another note - I've finished re-reading The Gentlemen Bastards trilogy, Malazan 1 and The Slow Regard of Silent Things, all of those books being quite solid.
I've also finished Infinity Blades book 1, which was a pleasant surprise from Sanderson, I expected a more generic book, considering how it's inspired by a game. I'm currently on book 2!
I'm also still reading Forever Fantasy Online by Rachel Aaron - I'm undecided on this one, but it's more like a pleasant 6/10 book. Nothing groundbreaking and probably the narration is a tad unfortunate as well - it turns an already childish concept into a childishly narrated childishly executed concept. The main male dude sounds like a guy who's playing with wooden horsies and the main female protagonist sounds like a try hard "I am gonna show my big brothers and sisters how Mary Sue I am" kind of character. Over-all - a very poorly executed idea and a very awkward choice for the narrator. He is just too friendly to carry out this book well enough. This book needed a more gruff narrator to give it some seriousness - I'm quite sure reading the ebook/papeback format is a better experience than the audiobook.
I'm also re-reading the masterclass of bromance and top notch narration that the Riyria Revelation series is. Royce + Hadrien + Tim Gerard Reynolds = fantasy utopia!
I'm already on book three and it's still buckets of fun.
And Arista is one of my favorite female characters of all time. She's bad ass without being flawless at the same time - I can appreciate that. I really wish the Percephonie from his new series was as relatable as Arista is, but they are almost the two perfect opposites. One is getting closer to the people around her by deliberately dismantling her walls, while the otr is deliberaly buildig walls to get separated from her peers and subjects. The biggest problem being that the latter isn't done for any particularly good reason in my opinion.
