It's going to be a good series I think Brenda, a cross between Deborah Challinor and Bryce Courtney with, of course, a good dose of Thomas Keneally ;D

message 20: by K (new)

K | 1139 comments Yesterday I read Seashore Seashore (Eyewitness Books) by Steve Parker and I also just finished Xena Warrior Princess: The Empty Throne, which I have 3 stars.


message 21: by Sally906 (new)

Sally906 I am still reading Secret Daughter by Shilpi Somaya Gowda Secret Daughter by Shilpi Somaya Gowda - I am really enjoying it.

An Indian woman gives up her child to an orphanage and she is adopted by an American couple - he is Indian so it made sense to have a child from India. Her adopted mother spends all her time trying to deny her daughter her heritage and the girls real mother spends all her time thinking of her 'secret daughter' Am half way through and, as I said, really enjoying it.

Mike Cullen | 24 comments I'm reading the Law of the Evermen by James Maxwell. It's a battle soaked Epic Fantasy and the 4th in a series. I've loved his Evermen Saga, I've read all of them in about a fortnight.

I searched and searched for this one! The Lore of the Evermen by James Maxwell

Amazing how a misspelling makes a difference...lol

Mike, to link your books, click on "add book/author' in the top right corner of your comment box and go from there :)


message 25: by Mike (new)

Mike Cullen | 24 comments Ah thanks for the tip Brenda, I wondered how everyone was doing that lol. And sorry for the misspelling. I'll assume it was because I was tired (it probably wasn't lol)

You can always pretend it was auto correct ;)

It is Phrynne. I had never heard of the author before stumbling across him on Amazon. Best Epic Fantasy series I've come across in years.

The first in the series is Enchantress

Wow! Over 600 pages! Are they all that sort of length Mike?

K | 1139 comments I finished Pride and Prejudice Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen today. I gave it three stars. I was not as taken with it as I was with Mansfield Park. I am aware this puts me in a fairly rare position amongst most readers! Lol.

I am now reading Promise of the Wolves Promise of the Wolves (Wolf Chronicles, #1) by Dorothy Hearst . I have to get it back to my aunt!


message 33: by K (new)

K | 1139 comments I also read these over the last few days:
Double Her Destiny Double Her Destiny (Double Seduction #4) by Randi Alexander (4 stars)
The Empty Throne The Empty Throne (Xena Warrior Princess) by Ru Emerson (3 stars)
and
Seashore Seashore (DK Eyewitness Books) by Steve Parker (3 stars)

Good book Allan


message 40: by Ryan (new)

Ryan The Name of the Rose by recently dead Italian author Umberto Eco. Vale.


message 41: by K (last edited Mar 19, 2016 01:31PM) (new)

K | 1139 comments Last night I read Sweet submission by Kimber White. I gave it three stars. It is a huge improvement on the first one. Not as many incorrect phrases, however still a couple of cringeworthy moments, which is why I didn't rate it higher. In this installment, Neve meets the rest of the pack.


message 42: by K (last edited Mar 19, 2016 05:20PM) (new)

K | 1139 comments This morning I finished Rising Heat. The author is finally hitting her stride in this one. It's really good. The pack have taken Neve back to their home territory for protection, but the real danger comes from within the pack this time. This installment is really suspenseful and the characters are starting to become well rounded. 4 stars this time.


message 43: by Niamh (last edited Mar 19, 2016 10:03PM) (new)

Niamh | 342 comments The Stone Key (American Edition) by Isobelle Carmody. I could only find the American edition, which is the second half of the Australian edition. I finished Wavesong last night, which is the first half of the Australian edition of The Stone Key (Yeah, it's confusing. Americans are apparently incapable of handling a 1000 page book...). I'm re-reading the series because The Red Queen came out at the end of last year and I can't remember what happens because I read the rest of the series so long ago.


message 44: by Ryan (new)

Ryan I just began a very new fantasy novel called Snakewood by debut author Adrian Selby.


message 45: by K (new)

K | 1139 comments I just finished Pack Wars: Claimed by the Pack - Part Four. Gosh, this is really good! Neve is being held hostage by Asher and his pack down in Kentucky and she must make a tough decision if she is to stay alive. Oh and did I mention that I LOVE a good cliffhanger? Well, DAMN. GOOD. CLIFFHANGER! Can't wait to read the next one! 4 stars.

Marianne (cloggiedownunder) | 8146 comments about halfway through The Beekeeper's Secret, very topical!


message 47: by James (new)

James (kihadu) | 19 comments I finally managed to get my hands on a copy of Shards of Honour - I think the interlibrary borrowing scheme in SA has expanded to include a few more libraries. A great book, a really delicate approach to exposition so every new fact is naturally provided instead of forcibly inserted (also reading Pandora's Star, which is a huge difference in approach even though they're both space operas, and I'm loving both of them).

Super eager to read the rest of the series.

Great that the library inter borrowing has expanded to suit more needs Alexander:)

Shards of Honour is one of my favourite books Alexander! It's a great one to re-read when you need cheering up! The whole series is great but I loved the early ones best :)
