The Hanging Tree, book 6 in the Rivers of London / Peter Grant series by Ben Aaronovitch.

Highly recommended as always, sorta like Jonathon Strange et al in 21st century London. Magical realism meets police procedural with amusing results.

I finished reading A Tyranny of Queens on the train down to London last week, and I'll be reading John Scalzi's The Collapsing Empire on the train home today.

Fat freaking out Avatar you really turn over books!

I'm reading Trudi Canavan- her new series. Read her Black Magicians Trilogy and the Traitor Queen and that Triligy - this is next triligy. None are related. She needs a better editor as there are quite frequently typos and mis-words but she slowly develops intriguing worlds and characters. I do love the attention she pays to narrative and developing her characters.

Recently read one of Kate Forsyth trilogies very fun, Sara Douglas was enjoyable. But I'm a slow reader, mostly before the light goes out 😏

Haha, years of practice and an inability to slow down. Very Happy

Started Last Argument of Kings last night, last of the First Law trilogy by Abercrombie.

I finished The Heart of What Was Lost and The Witchwood Crown the other day. That's over 1000 pages of Tad Williams. (whew!)

Now working on Age of Swords by Michael J. Sullivan. That's book two of his new series that started with Age of Myth from last year.

That sounds GREAT, defintely adding this to my list.

I'm about halfway trough the Dritzt Do'Urden books by R.A. Salvatore. Havent read them since I was in middle school, they're entertaining! Not the best writing, but it brings back DnD memories.

You probably already know this if you looked it up, but just in case - you'll want to start with The Fifth Season. The Stone Sky is the last in a trilogy.

I liked R.A. Salvatore's first trilogy, but I felt he got a bit repetitive down the road. Same with Weis and Hickman's Dragonlance books.

I finished The Golden Fool by Robin Hobb in audiobook today. Still a master of characters and relationships.

I will brook no criticism of Weis & Hickman Dragonlance books! They were my gateway drug. Plus every single other Dragonlance book not written but that duo was God-awful.

I think The Second Generation is where I started losing interest. I liked most of the ones with the main characters. Absolutely agree about the ones by other authors being terrible - and I read more of those than I care to admit.
