I listened to a sample and the narrator did sound good. I think I'll end up reading it though.

Solseit | 1460 comments I have to say I am looking forward to Promise of Blood and I am counting down the days, trying to keep busy to not jump into it before Jan 10!

Entertainment provided by Gardens of the Moon and if I finish it before Jan 10, then I will start re-reading Deadhouse Gates so I do not feel too tempted!

I forgot how fast you are at reading... Also, I cannot wait to finish the working day and immerse myself in this spectacular world.

I wish I wasn't so far ahead. The 6 year old had a bad dream and got me up at 3:20. I realized I wasn't getting back to bed so I got up and started reading. It's all of 9:40 now and now sitting at my desk at work I could easily pass out.

Thanks and I'm sure many here have had those nights.

Solseit | 1460 comments Oh my what did I just read!
This books gets better and better by the minute - maybe because I like military fantasy - but I am impressed by the story so far, by the magic system(s) and the characters depth.
I am impressed and I see why this series is so acclaimed!


Jody  | 28 comments On chapter 9:
Entertaining so far! Well thought out magic system and a wide variety of different characters. Very hard to put down.

TS Chan (tschan) | 159 comments Through Chapter 3. The way Taniel inhales the gunpowder gives me images of 'white lines' (or in this case, black lines).

I was seriously considering not sleeping last night to continue reading!


Samir (royceblackwater) | 842 comments Through Chapter 8. Very good so far. I would like to know how did the author come up with the name Kresimir because that is a common name in Croatia and it is spelled Krešimir.

Does it have a particular meaning in Croatian?

Does ..."


It doesn't have a particular meaning but there was a king named Petar Krešimir IV. who ruled the Kingdom of Croatia from 1508. to 1074.
