    Finished Grey Bastards. What a ride. Absolutely stunning and visceral. Big change from the politically correct fantasy of the nor and littered with vulgarity and base jokes. Earned a laugh here and there, but a gripping story to boot.

    Ha ha. Doing completed series that I've read is far more restrictive than I thought. What would be your top 3 YA?

    Strangely I have not finished Senlin Ascends. Put it off after about 100 pages due to work and didn't feel like picking it up again. Somehow never grabbed me. I will finish it a bit later ofc, but still probably the best rated book, that didn't hook me there.

    Already did that. One of the most refreshing books, I've read in long time. Sequel is also great! Starting Grey Bastards next.

    Just finished Paternus. If anyone wants a break from mainstream fantasy and looking for something refreshing, I'd recommend this. It's a shame Indie authors don't get recognition, but these are some kick-ass books.
  7. Have you all read Lost Horizon by James Hilton. A airplane crash lands a bunch of people at mysterious Shangri-La where they get extra long life...if they stay there. And that their arrival may not be a accident. One of my first and still best remembered books.

    Book 1 was nice. Two was meh and I found 3 to be really boring. I speed read just to get closure. Wouldn't recommend this series at all.

    Dresden Files (most recent thread is archived) Peace Talks is finished

    Not sure how you calculate that. Molly became Winter Lady in Cold Days. Peace Talks is set 2 years after Cold Days...and that how long she's been his boss for.

    That's awesome. They do deserve more visibility. I just started Paternus by Dyrk Ashton from 2016 edition!

    Dresden Files (most recent thread is archived) Peace Talks is finished

    https://www.jim-butcher.com/timeline Per Jim Butcher timelines, Molly is 17 at Proven Guilty (Harry is 32) (give or take a year) when she tries to act on her crush to Harry. She's probably right at age of consent or a year younger at best. Harry shuts it down and calls her padawan which establishes the relationship, which is proper thing to do considering their background.

    Harry/Molly is very Woody Allen'esque. Karrin is a much better partner. They may have started as friends, but JB has done a good job of their change in feelings. From the excerpt looks like the peace conference will be between Fomors vs Wizards maybe. I need to go back to the novellas to refresh my memory of Fomors.

    First Quarter 2020 Reading

    Finished 2 fantasy books set in Cowboy Old West. Six-Gun Tarot (Golgotha #1) Shotgun Arcana (Golgotha #2) Quite an interesting hot pot of a world. Has everything from gods, angels, demons to sheriff's, gay mormons. Books 1 is a good adventure fun read. Book 2 takes a darker turn with more gore and is a step down. Still a different read to refresh palate.

    Yes. Son of lIche. Also quite good! Yes, It was also in SPFBO and won last year iirc. Never Die and Sword of Kaigen are asian inspired books this year. Both really good too!

    First thread, so apologies if this is duplicated. Did a check but couldn't find related topics... For those who are not aware: So how many follow this or read these books? I've read some and familiar with others. Some really hidden gems out there imho. Grey Bastards - Jonathan French, Sufficiently Advanced Magic - Andrew Rowe, Orconomics - Zachary Pike, Here Be Dragons David P MacPherson are among those I rate and think deserve more visibility
