The Dragon's Path Kicks off September 1st and we have a lot of interest so I'm just getting this ready and reminding everybody in case they need to make a purchase that involves delivery.

Looking forward to a large group.

Seán | 602 comments My main bookstore was selling each book in the series for €4.99 each - I'm hoping to get in soon enough and pick up the whole series!


Solseit | 1460 comments I am in! Just need to get the book and I am ready to start! I am really looking forward to this one (as much as I looked forward to most of the series I started - yes, I should make up my mind before blabbing so much...)

Chris  (haughtc) | 1767 comments Hey, I did want to say that if anyone got the ebook for Leviathan Wakes, check your copy. Mine had a bonus copy of The Dragon's Path included.

I have my copy as well - only a week left!


Solseit | 1460 comments I am still waiting on my copy to be delivered! I hope this is going to come in on time... Plus I will be traveling for work on Friday so I could have additional time on the train to simply read! Priceless!


Solseit | 1460 comments The book is finally in my hands! I am looking at it and I am really fighting against starting the book earlier!

It would be really terrible to start early..


Solseit | 1460 comments Haha Emma you are totally right! I need to be strong, by hiding the book!


message 13: by Seán (new) - added it

Seán | 602 comments I couldn't get a hold of this for a decent price, so I think I'll sit this one out. I've enough on my plate as well - if I grab it at a later stage I'll catch up.

I just started this book. I'm terrible for starting early, I know. ;)
I didn't want to start a new book two days before this group read.
I read the prologue and it was just alright for me. I'm not usually a huge fan of prologues. They try to be all mysterious and foretelling, but I have no idea what is going on so I generally don't care because I know it won't make sense until after I've read the whole book.

Which sounds better.......Jenna the Prologue hater? Or Jenna I'm gonna start early mod? :)

I tried to start a short book yesterday so I wouldn't start until tomorrow but unfortunately I DNF's at 45% so I'll also be guilty of starting today and early.

I read the prologue which I thought was good by prologue standards. I do agree it's tough to appreciate them until later but there was a lot of good hints and info.

Also sometimes early in a book I find myself re-reading sentences or even paragraphs until I get used to the writers style and phrasings. That didn't happen here. His prose flowed for me.

Do you want me to go down there and motivate them? :)

So this book doesn't have chapter numbers and I'm sure we all have different editions so I'll label spoilers as I'm doing below.

Captain Marcus Wester pages 11-24

(view spoiler)

So I find the races interesting but nearly impossible to keep straight so far. So I found the link below for full descriptions to keep them straight.

Scott  Hitchcock (lostinthewarrenofchaos) | 8082 comments Mod
Cithrin 36-57. Three chapters and three perspectives and chapter 4 adds another looking ahead. I feel like at the end of chapter three things are finally coming into focus and I'm worried chapter 4 will spin this around again.

(view spoiler)

I tried searching the web for images of the races but a ton of video games images come back and I can't find anything good on Wiki or Abraham's site.

Well, you start early too sometimes so I guess I'll be the Prologue Hater. I would agree that Abraham's prose is very easy to follow so that made the prologue bearable.

Thanks for the link of the races. Very fascinating.

So far I'm liking Marcus and Cithrin as characters. The other POVs have interesting stories, but I just don't like the characters as much.


message 21: by Emma (new) - rated it 5 stars

Emma | 12 comments I really enjoyed the prologue. It intrigued me and made me want to continue. I like the fact the action/adventure/quest has got underway pretty quickly. Love all the different races. They'd look great on the big screen!

Yes, all the different races would look awesome if it was made into a movie or TV show.


Solseit | 1460 comments So the gates are open, officially? I am going to start then too!

Lil I know. I was just teasing. You did pretty much say you hated prologue a earlier in the thread.

Well, it's kind of true and Prologue Disliker just doesn't have the same ring as Prologue Hater.

I'm on vacation and have an over-stacked Septembers so don't feel like you have to keep up the pace. I think most people will be slower on this one.


Solseit | 1460 comments The prologue is fairly good though! Mystery mixed with "normal" activities.

I am really enjoying it so far!

Olivia (vinjii) | 1080 comments I'm jealous of everyone. My book still hasn't arrived. Went to the library today to see if by any chance it was on a shelf. And it wasn't. Only book 4. How helpful.

I'm over 50% now and really enjoying the book. I love that there are multiple POV's, but that it's only 4 POV's and not dozens.

Marcus Wester is my favourite character in the books so far.

I'm over half-way done, but I haven't been reading (or been on Goodreads) as I've been visiting family.

Marcus is awesome. I like the story with Cithrin and Marcus the most so far.

I didn't realise Daniel Abraham was James S.A. Corey. The Expanse series has been on my TBR for a while.

75% now and yeah still liking Marcus Wester. Cithrin is growing on me. Geder is interesting as well, but I just have this sense that nothing good can come from what he is seeking.

Emma | 12 comments I've never heard of James S A Corey but I am going to look him up now!


message 49: by Olivia (new)

Olivia (vinjii) | 1080 comments I thought they're 2 people writing the Expanse? So he's not the 2nd person but Corey?

You are right they are co authored. Ty Franck is the other author.
