  1. I thought Joe Abercrombie's The Trouble With Peace was excellent and right up there with his best work. Next I'll be reading a murder mystery set in ancient Greece called, Shadows of Athens by J. M. Alvey. Looking forward to it.
  2. You are most kind, sir! I hope you enjoy it. For me, I'm still reading and enjoying The Trouble With Peace by Joe Abercrombie. I'm pretty sure I spotted a gigantic reference to Brexit...
  3. It's absolutely meant to be his take on Moria and it is genuinely brilliant. That whole sequence is the highpoint of his work for me. That ending *is* exceedingly bleak, all right! Thanks again for reading, though.
  4. The Trials of Koli was as good as I had expected. I am sad that I will have to wait until March for the third book. But nevermind! Up next is Joe Abercrombie's The Trouble With Peace.
  5. I am indeed and thank you for your kind words! Badb has a rather large part to play in Three Kings.
  6. I'm starting into The Trials of Koli by M. R. Carey. The first book was tremendous, so really looking forward to this.
  7. Delighted you're enjoying Knaves, although I think Three Kings came together very well too
  8. I'm mainlining Wild Card books this weekend. Just finished Mississippi Roll. 10% into Low Chicago. I hope to clear the decks in time for the arrival of M.R. Carey's The Trials of Koli in a few days time...
  9. This. I loved it, really loved it. And by lucky coincidence I finished it right before the deadline for the close of the Hugo voting.
  10. There are several different Wild Card formats. You might prefer the mosaic books better, since they are a single novel written by a team of writers. Some of the later Wild Cards books are more coherent too. Once you've finished this one and you know the rules, more or less, give Inside Straight a try for a more connected plot.
  11. I have started Adrian Tchaikovsky's latest, The Doors of Eden.
  12. Yeah, it is, sort of. But it would work perfectly well as a standalone in my opinion. Still, no need to avoid the first one when both are good
  13. Well, I have to say that the most recent two K. J. Parker books have been very enjoyable. You already know what you're getting with him, but if you like that sort of thing, these are great: 16 Ways to Defend a Walled City How to Rule An Empire and Get Away With It They could both be read as standalones, although the second does contain spoilers for the first. Up next, Seanan McGuire's In an Absent Dream.
  14. I had no idea there was a book #4! It kinda felt like a good natural ending already.
  15. About to start yet another K.J. Parker book -- How to Rule an Empire and Get Away With it.
