Meh...saw it in the bookshop on the weekend. Maybe he should first write the end of the story he's busy with before gadding about with historical prequels...

Anyway, I'm re-reading Bakker, The Darkness That Comes Before.

I agree, but I'll take what I can get.

I have resolved not to read it until the main story is finished.

So...probably never. Very Happy

About the same time I'll get around to reading those Esslemont Malazan books.

I just can't get into Esslemont. I know he influenced the main series, and I respect that, but his characters just don't have the same depth. Erikson will rip out your heart and serve it to you on a platter and you'll thank him and ask for more. That's tough to compete with.

Eh, they're different, but I like them both (mostly).

Anyway, on to The Warrior Prophet.

Bakker, The Judging Eye, book 1 of the Aspect-Emperor series.

(And prob my least favourite of them, although that may change...)

As you know I loved this series. So different and dark. As much as I loved it I found it even more enjoyable upon a reread. Knowing the whole story gives the reader a different perspective on many things and the books really open up.

Are you finding any new insights through the reread?
