So... Laura and I realized we were double booked for this and Green Rider. Would anyone be opposed to moving the start date to may 15th? :)

Quinn | 460 comments yes please! I want more people join green rider!


Elizabeth (fantasynerd365) | 1100 comments Just saw this (I'm bad...) that'd be better for me. early may will be a bit hectic, I'm graduating college on the 20th so 15th will be easier.

Laura (lauradragonchild) | 6216 comments I think I may have to bow out of this one. Too many open reads in May for me. :(

message 17: by John (new) - rated it 5 stars

John Compton | 163 comments I read this last year, and absolutely loved it. I will look in on the discussions.

Completely opposite experience from Gardens of the Moon!


Elizabeth (fantasynerd365) | 1100 comments I started it earlier, didn't get very far before I had to go to work but I'm enjoying it so far, hoping to have more time tomorrow. my only comment so far is it's a bit confusing.


Gelisvb | 76 comments I am at chapter 5. So far I am not impressed but it's very early.


Elizabeth (fantasynerd365) | 1100 comments I'm on chapter 20 and am loving it so far.

In chapter 11(view spoiler)

Chapter 19 (view spoiler)


Elizabeth (fantasynerd365) | 1100 comments anyone else really started this? I can take a break today and read the other book I started to give people time to catch up.

I read it several months ago, and really loved it! Re..."

I try to read this before bed, but I fall asleep after three pages. There is lot of info dumping.So far it's exahusting and I'm only at page 30. I'll see this weekend if it gets less so when I read during the day(I have the huge physical copy and I can't bring it with me, so I only read it at hoem)

John Compton | 163 comments I understand completely. And you may not like the book. I know a lot of people love the Malazan books, but I was totally lost during Gardens of the Moon. I will try again (someday), but not now. BTW, I am one of those "3 pages and fall asleep" people, also.


Elizabeth (fantasynerd365) | 1100 comments on chapter 34, I like it, I agree there was a lot of info dumping at first, but the world definitely has me intrigued. I'm really wondering about what caused the war in the first place


Elizabeth (fantasynerd365) | 1100 comments Just started chapter 39 (view spoiler)


Rosalyn Kelly (rosalyn_kelly) | 3 comments I've finished - loved it! Loved the worldbuilding and magic system, will definitely be reading book #2 in the series.


Gelisvb | 76 comments 63 Pages in.I'm slowly starting to get into it.


Krista Hansen Welch | 6 comments On chapter 65. I agree it was hard to get into at first. The magic system and world is pretty complicated. But, as I got farther in, the twists and turns in the plot really hooked me. There's so much I want to know about the pasts of these characters. Can't wait to see what happens next!


Elizabeth (fantasynerd365) | 1100 comments on chapter 79, will definitely finish tomorrow, yesterday was hectic then I worked all day today. really enjoying this.


Elizabeth (fantasynerd365) | 1100 comments Finished it. so for the end. (view spoiler)
