  1. OK good to know. My favourite seems to change based on what I'm currently reading. :P I thought Under Heaven was it but upon rereading the Sarantines I like those better, I think.

  2. Reading Fionovar Tapestry right now. Was a bit hard to get into initially, but Summer Tree really does rise to the occasion as the book goes on.

    Curious, I know he has a lot of historical fantasy - does Under Heaven or Lions have any actual magic in it? Doesn't seem like it at first glance.



    Yes Under Heaven has 'magic' in it. I would describe it more as supernatural events happening however.

    IMO the magic or supernatural events aren't really all that crucial to the plot in any of the books I've read so far. You could take them out and have almost the exact same story.

    This is one thing about GGK that confuses me, it's kinda like why other having weird shit happen at all if it doesn't really affect anything? This is not true of all events but seems more the case than not. YMMV.

    An example of what I mean is in The Sarantine Duolgies:

    in the main city of Sarantium there are random fires flaring up in the night that everybody sees but no one knows what cause them or seems to care about it and we don't ever find out what the fuck they are.

  3. Oooh exciting! Currently on a GGK kick, read Under Heaven first, then the Sarantine Duology, next is Lions or Last Light... So far Under Heaven is my favourite though.

    Thanks for the heads up!

  4. "woof woof"!

    Puppies! We're getting some very cute genetically modified 'dire wolf' puppies, bred from wolfhounds and some dna dug out of prehistoric direwolf bones!

    I'm really looking forward to teaching mine to 'fetch'.

    Cool!!! I want one *whine*
