Hey guys, I started reading this book ... it is a trilogy, and currently on book two .

Might want to give it a try if you like gritty fantasy ... adult fantasy.

I'd love to try out some grimdark fantasy at some point. Unfortunately I'll be reading Wheel of Time for a couple more years and will only have room to keep up with a few on-going series that I'm invested in.

There's too much good fantasy these days for a slow reader like myself. xD

Yeah I know a friend that is still glued to Wheel of Time, it is ... addicting to some people.

He always tell me this stories about characters there.

Tried it to read it once, but could not get past a few pages, even forcing myself.

But I know about time, so little of it and so MUCH STUFF OUT THERE.

Even today I discovered at least 2 more books I want to read but wont have time between job, family and chores.

But hey! If it makes you happy hope you can keep reading it and eventually finish it! [You must be logged in to view images. Log in or Register.]

Ahhh! Gotta love seeing people drinking Bourbon!

Cheers my friend! I saw your book bounty and found it quite interesting!

Been a while since I got anything in real paper, due to me moving frequently I am forced with digital , but glad to see you got some nice stuff!

Cheers man! I will drink some of my own special 18 Years Old Parr reserve and think of you!

Have fun! [You must be logged in to view images. Log in or Register.]

Nice. I read Dune when I was in high school 20 years ago. Should totally give that another read.

Ed McDonald: Raven's Mark trilogy. Blackwing is the first book, steampunk with horror elements. Sort of a grimdark meets Lovecraft thing.

Miles Cameron: Traitor Son cycle. This author has worn plate armor for fun over extended periods of time. So good, both in terms of details and overall story.

Mark Lawrence. Literally anything this guy writes. I see he's been mentioned above.

Annalee Newitz: Autonomous. One of the best sci fi reads I had last year. Got some Neuromancer vibes off it in terms of how fresh the theme felt.

That Licanus series was disappointing though. Gave up after 100 pages into book 2. Had the feeling that I've read this stuff so many times before, and I was starting to hope those 3 annoying teenagers would just die.
