A Quick Update: What I’m Reading

26 Jan

Hey guys and girls,

I’ve got nothing really special for you today – mainly because I’m really tired and want to just relax; but I actually won’t be able to, anyway.

I finished writing my first novel on the 18th and have re-writes to work through, so will be busy with that tonight, too. (nope, no publisher or even an agent… yet.)

Anyway, what I’m reading and thoughts so far:

The Demi-Monde: Winter by Rod Rees – absolutely incredible so far; the worldbuilding alone in the novel is on par with the likes of Robert Jordan, Tad Williams, Steven Erikson… Amazing concepts, great characters, really enjoying it!

Shadow’s Son by Jon Sprunk – what a sneaky bloody book! When I began I was lulled into thinking that this would be a book with a small focus but hell, excellent characters and a great world, reads without practically any effort. 🙂

CassaStar by Alex J Cavanaugh – excellent book so far, though there are wayyy too many exclamation marks for my liking. Great SF with a military focus. 🙂

The Emerald Storm by Michael Sullivan – what can I say? Damn good all the way through. 🙂

I should have a review of The Emerald Storm up next week – I’m flying to Perth on Tuesday evening but will be blogging from Oz, so don’t worry. 🙂 The rest of the reviews should follow on shortly after that, and then I’ll be getting stuck into Stephen Zimmer‘s Crown of Vengeance, Brian Libby‘s Gold and Glory, Black Hawks from a Black Sun by F. Allen Farnham and The Mall by S.L. Grey.

Until tomorrow,
