    The Traitor Son Cycle by Miles Cameron

    I can't put it down. I have the advantage of getting some reading time at work also. But, yea, some of the best stuff I've come across.

    The Traitor Son Cycle by Miles Cameron

    Just starting The Fall of Dragons, super excited to see the ending of this story. I'm actually surprised there isn't more discussion on these books. Maybe there was though, I am late to the game with these books.

    Malazan: High House Shadow edition

    Anyone finish Deadhouse Landing yet? Finished last night, and this is the best stuff ICE has put out there.

    The Traitor Son Cycle by Miles Cameron

    Finished The Fell Knight, and as @polishgenius said it did seem more of a set-up book. But, I am very interested in this series. To a break to read Deadhouse Landing, but onto the 3rd tonight. This series, so far to me, has the potential to be something really special.

    The Traitor Son Cycle by Miles Cameron

    Just finished The Red Knight and in was very impressed. Enjoy this immensely. Most fantasy I read just doesn't have that special something that grabs you and keeps you turning pages into the wee hours of night. This did. I see the last book just came out. So, question, and please don't spoil me at all. Do the books just keep getting better and better? I see so much room for mystery and intrigue, which the first book had me craving to go straight to the 2nd. How did you guys feel about the other books?

    Malazan: High House Shadow edition

    Well, I've gone ahead and started Forge of Darkness. I had mixed feelings because of review on the trilogy, which was why I hadn't read it. So far it's been good and I expect it to only get better the further along I get.

    Malazan: High House Shadow edition

    Well, as I've read both, and enjoyed both, Malazan is certainly nothing at all like ASOIAF. I don't even know how you coukd begin to think so. ETA: sorry I posted this in the wrong thread...oops.

    The Books That Have Just Come Out: New Release Thread

    Oh, I liked that twist.

    The Books That Have Just Come Out: New Release Thread

    In sure it's been mentioned, but Court of Broken Knives by Anna Smith Spark is a very excellent book and would recommend to anyone that enjoys Grimdark Fantasy. Not quite finished, but it's been excellent throughout. And, it's alot more than Gore and pointless savagery. Alot of mystery, intrigue and politics. First novel, so prose could be a bit better, but expect it to improve as the series progresses.

    American Gods on Starz

    @red snow, I was just being sarcastic. I know, its hard to tell sarcasm over the written word. Yes, I've seen many justifiable complaints. I just have really liked the show. Don't really have any complaints.

    American Gods on Starz

    Great show, great adaption of the books with added clarification for book readers. The Coming to America parts have been my favorite. Easter and Media, perfect. I don't see where the complaints come from, you know, other than the usual people around here that bitch, moan and pick apart everything. Pretty par for the course. I live it though, because I find it hilarious at how no one can ever be happy, must be miserable to wake up of a morning and face yourself.

    Atwood's 'The Handmaid’s Tale' on Hulu

    All uncomfortable...yet, it's the right way to live? Makes you think what goes through peoples head where this shit exists, in a way. Though, I guess the infertility rate has a lot to do with how this all comes to be. Doesn't make it any better though. ETA: I can even sympathize with the commander's wife....a little incy wincy bit. Not a whole lot though.

    Atwood's 'The Handmaid’s Tale' on Hulu

    Was rec'd to me by someone at SA, and its a really good show. I like dystopian stories and I've never seen one like this. The "ceremony" was one of the more horrific things I've ever watched on tv. Imagine being any of the people involved...yet my heart breaks thinking about what would be going through the Handmaiden's mind.
