Major spoilers for other books in the series.

This book is very underwhelming.

Mind you, it is a return to form, unlike the Atlantis Complex which shall never be referred to ever again (ever) - impossible stunts, witty lines, an extended Foaly appea

"EDIT 07/12: Other reviews have started flooding in, and all of them seem to be favourable, which tells me I'm in the minority here in my dislike of this book. So I'll leave this review as is, but I encourage you not to let my ramblings stop you fr..." Read more of this review »
The Martian by Andy Weir
"This must be the first of my 5 star book that hasn't left me sad and confused in the end. It made me laugh throughout and I was extremely happy in the end.

The Martian is a story of survival. It's commercial, a little immature and kind of predicta..." Read more of this review »

This is a really hard book to rate. I keep oscillating between a 4 and 5 (like I did for Mistborn) - it was brilliant, the detail, the characters, the descriptions...but I can't deny that I dozed off a lot and it felt like it took me years to read th ...more

The Rithmatist by Brandon Sanderson
"Listened to this one on audio, vainly hoping beyond hope that I might finally read a Brandon Sanderson book I don't like so I can feel better about myself as an author.

But no. I enjoyed this book as much as any of his. Good worldbuilding, just as..." Read more of this review »

What he said.

I loved this book. It's an incredible finish to the series and it's only been an hour since I finished reading it, I am still stunned.

You'll never see the climax coming (view spoiler)

“Go to hell."
A flicker of madness crept into his eyes. "Already there.”
Elizabeth Hunter, A Hidden Fire

Robert Galbraith
“...writers are a savage breed, Mr. Strike. If you want life-long friendship and selfless camaraderie, join the army and learn to kill. If you want a lifetime of temporary alliances with peers who will glory in your every failure, write novels.”
Robert Galbraith, The Silkworm

“It is painful to see that people prefer a bad guy who looks like an angel to a good guy who looks like a demon.”

“He glares at me as if he already hates it. “What is it?” I consider lying but what’s the point? I clear my throat. “Pooky Bear"
He’s silent for so long I’m beginning to think he didn’t hear me when he finally says, “Pooky. Bear.” “It was just a little joke. I didn’t know.”
“I’ve mentioned that names have power, right? Do you realize that when she fights battles, she’s going to have to announce herself to the opposing sword? She’ll be forced to say something ridiculous like, ‘I am Pooky Bear, from an ancient line of archangel swords.’ Or, ‘Bow down to me, Pooky Bear, who has only two other equals in all the worlds.’ ” He shakes his head. “How is she going to get any respect?”
Susan Ee, World After
