  1. Funny, I've started recognizing Sulfur immediately, right before his eyes are described
  2. I saw this on reddit. Is this real? I can't find the reddit post where I originally saw it, but people were unable to confirm the original post. Edit: Nevermind people have confirmed it's real. I just thought it was really bizarre when I first saw it.
  3. I'm reading through these in publication order. Currently on A Song for Arbonne. I'm enjoying it but it sort of feels like a lesser book than Tigana. Tigana was amazing. I don't dislike any book yet, but the third Fionnavar book was pretty boring for a good chunk of it. Its high points were really good though.
  4. There are none from the 90s But no I like these two new covers more than most of the early ones.
  5. The titles for the novellas continue to sound like James Islington's Licanius Trilogy Tad: The Heart of What was Lost The Shadow of Things to Come Islington: The Shadow of What was Lost An Echo of Things to Come The Light of All that Falls
  6. One of Abraham's other series, Dagger & Coin, has some really good commentary on the danger of certainty.
  7. I wasn't a fan of Marco. We kept being told that he was charismatic, but to me he did not read as a very charismatic villain.
  8. He does not wear a hat in the books. I believe the books have had a meta joke or two about hats.
  9. I thought Words of Radiance was amazing, but yeah Oathbringer could have been trimmed quite a bit and benefited for it. At least book 4 will be shorter than Oathbringer.
  10. I read The Dragonbone Chair earlier this year--I feel like I'm the only person who loved the first 1/3 and even though it was the best part of the book. The last 1/3 was quite good too.
  11. Most people think Lightbringer is a significant step up from Night Angel--not that I personally agree. If cliches were your problem in Night Angel, Lightbringer is less cliched and more about subverting expectations. There are some big surprises.
  12. I'm not very far yet, but it seems the main difference is that the characters in this book are more living in the shadows of established characters. And they're more coming-of-age while Logan and Glokta had already experienced a lot of shit before the start of The Blade Itself.
  13. I read Tigana earlier this year and I didn't find it to be slow at all. Maybe I just read a lot of slow books. I loved it.
  14. I'm about 3/4 of the way through Dark Age and it's on track to be my favorite one yet. Iron Gold was a bit of an awkward transition into multi-POV, but Dark Age pulls off the epic feel much better. All of the storylines in Iron Gold feel very small time in comparison to Dark Age. I've seen a lot of comparisons to Golden Son, which I don't really get other than that they're both book 2. In Golden Son, Darrow pretty much kept succeeding until the very end. Dark Age is bleak as fuck...nothing is going right for the good guys, but IMO that just makes the rise that much more satisfying. Dark Age seems to be the most divisive book so far, with people saying it's either their favorite or least favorite. The main complaint I've seen from the latter are that it's too bleak, so your mileage may vary.
  15. It's funny, I'm about 2/3 of the way through and I thought the beginning was the best part. Everyone talks about how slow it is but I loved it. After the Hayholt I felt it got less interesting. I realize I'm in the minority here.
