I've requested from the library. I seem to have terrible luck this year with books being available. Too many other readers know about these great books I seem to want to read.

Maybe someone in the group also goes to your library!

Just found out Brian Staveley's next book is about Pyrre Skullsworn. I really enjoy Pyrre as a character, so will be interesting to read her book. At this stage it is showing as a standalone.


Solseit | 1460 comments I need to hurry to read the second book! I just need to dive it - but need to finish the current read - yes, I know, I am an infinite source of non-added value posts. I have to work on that.
In essence, I will be in!

I'm going to start this today but won't comment until the first. Only because it's 29 hours of audio and I'm much slower with this format. I'll be pushing to get it done by the end of the month especially since I won't be commuting until the 6th.

Through chapter 9

Lundos | 392 comments I'm extremely busy at work, so I've not read a book since July. Hopefully I can get into this one.
Does anyone know a place I can get a good recap of the last two?


Lundos | 392 comments Thanks!

I'm starting this book next. I hope there are more Gwenna POVs.

I'm 40% done and in the late twenties for chapters. Gwenna is part of the regular chapter rotation in this book.

That's great to hear. Thanks Scott.


Jody  | 28 comments I'm at 25% and really enjoying it. These characters have developed well since book 1.

Agreed. Even/Finally Adare in this book.

I know Skullsworn is next up with the story of Pyrre but I would love a prequel series of Nera and the Ishien!!!! I can't enough of her creative cursing. Also a book on the Flee and his wing would be really cool. For all of their awesomeness there hasn't been a lot of Ketrel action.


Jody  | 28 comments Nera cracks me up! She is one of my favorites.

A prequel series would be awesome. There are a lot of great characters in this trilogy that could definitely have their own book or series. More Ketrel action for sure!!!

I checked out "ask the author", and Brian states he has signed on with Tor to write 4 more books. Skullsworn I'm guessing is the first of those 4.

I wonder if all four are from this world. He's better off staying with the Asian theme. I think his style fits it. If he tried to write a series more like Shadow Campaigns I don't think it would translate well.

I haven't read Shadow Campaigns yet, but I know what you mean. His style does fit the Asian culture well.

I've read the first four chapters. Nera is hilarious. She doesn't mess around with telling Adare what she really thinks.


Jody  | 28 comments Angela wrote: "I've read the first four chapters. Nera is hilarious. She doesn't mess around with telling Adare what she really thinks."

No she doesn't! She has a creative way of cursing too. It would probably make a sailor blush.

Through 28..........what a mind fuck twist that I didn't see coming.

Edit don't read this until after 35. I screwed my chapters up.
(view spoiler)


Jody  | 28 comments I'm just starting 23. I had the feeling something crazy is about to happen. Can't wait!!!


Solseit | 1460 comments I am in pain! I am waiting on the book to be delivered (yes, I thought about reading it in ebook but I wanted also the paper feeling on this book...).
I cannot wait to return with the Malkeenian (if it is spelled properly!) and I am glad you guys are having pretty excited comments!

I feel for you Aristea. It's funny but a lot of the reviews I had read made it seem like this book took a major step back after book two was such an improvement from book one. I think this has been on par to this point. It just needs that epic ending.


Jody  | 28 comments Personally! This is the best book in the trilogy by my standards. There is so much going on I am on the edge of my seat most of the time.

I feel so far this isn't as action packed as book #2.

Up to chapter 16 (view spoiler)

There wasn't as much action at the start but I still enjoyed it a lot. There is a lot of action later on.

through chapter 54.........such a stupid small thing but I was so happy I picked up on it.

Jody  | 28 comments Trying to get some extra reading in today. I have been overloaded with work the past few days. Currently on chapter 41.

Scott I've only been reading the spoiler tabs as I get there. I wanted to keep reading last night, but forced myself to stop. I can't handle very late nights anymore. Haha I had to join the herbal tea brigade a couple of years ago as now if I drink tea or coffee after 5pm I seem to have trouble sleeping. I am liking the story more. (view spoiler)

Jody  | 28 comments On chapter 54. Less than 100 pages remaining. I am pleased with the way the story has played out so far. Everything seems to be falling into place for the finally. We just need that epic ending with me sitting here with my mouth on the floor thinking WTF just happened.

I'm done. Excellent conclusion to the series. I think this was as good as Providence of fire.

Jody  | 28 comments I am right behind you Scott. Hope to be finished tonight.

Lundos | 392 comments I'm only at chapter 15, but so far it's been good getting back into the world.
From the comments here I have something to look forward to.
