A Companion to Wolves (Iskryne World, #1)

The Somnambulist (Domino Men #1)

Making Money (Discworld, #36)

Kushiel's Scion (Imriel's Trilogy, #1)

When I started reading this one, Nobilis told me it was a solid 8 to the first trilogy's 9. I think I'd have to agree that Kushiel's Scion did not wow ...more
