"Reread. Prologue wasn't as fun as AGoT, but still interesting. Patchface seems an important seed, we'll have to pay attention. Arya is freaking awesome and Sansa immediately becomes a character you can sympathize with, you know, what with all the beatings and having to deal with Joffrey all the time." Jul 29, 2015 08:57AM

"Highly entertaining, but disbelief is getting harder to suspend and the 80s thing doesn't work as well in this one. It was built into the plot of RPO, but here it's much more lose and sounding repetitious." Jul 29, 2015 08:52AM

Crystal Starr Light
Crystal Starr Light is on page 2 of 262 of Pawn of Prophecy: Apologies to Mrs. Joseph for not getting farther during lunch. BUT I have read a leetle ways, and it's giving me Silmarillion vibes - which is AWESOME! (I LOVED Silmarillion - it may well be my favorite of Tolkien's works!)
Half a War by Joe Abercrombie
"3.5 Only Half a War is Fought with Swords Stars

If you have read books by Joe Abercrombie (JA) before then you know he never wraps everything up at the end with tidy ribbons and bows and Happily Ever Afters. Nope nothing as trite and cliché as that..." Read more of this review »

“All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.

From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king.”
