I loved Kushiel's Trilogy too!! I think the first book in Imriel's was my favorite of the saga, so it's definitely worth it to keep reading!

Are you referring to the idea for the book cover challenge? Because this one is Jenna's brilliance. :)

Niki Hawkes - The Obsessive Bookseller | 6906 comments Mod
Thank you! And me too. I just realized it has a boat on it, so I may switch it to that because it's harder haha.

Tammie | 3827 comments That's going to be my dragon cover book too :)


message 27: by Tammie (new)

For some reason I feel like I need to finish Riyra before starting that one, even though I don't think they connect haha.

I'm very excited to hear what you think of Legion. :)

Updated and added 10 books to the challenge read within the last month! Holy cow. Surprisingly, the colors are proving the most challenging.

Great progress Niki. Did you enjoy The Operator?

Angela wrote: "Great progress Niki. Did you enjoy The Operator?"

Thanks! And yes - it was much stronger than The Drafter. I'm still not sure I like the main character, but it was a good story. I'm currently reading Waylaid, where the character from this one meets Rachel Morgan from The Hollows - it's loads of fun!

Thanks! I couldn't either until someone mentioned it was a freebie on tor.com. You can read it online or copy/paste/and print it out. It's worth the effort.
