Bill | 2150 comments I’m like halfway though the book and having a hard time really connecting with the story. I can’t really explain why but the pieces are just not coming together for me so far.

I saw in the thread for the first book someone mentioned this series m/m relationship but I just don’t see that with the two mains.


Em Lost In Books (emlostinbooks) | 2385 comments 20% done and I am quite liking it so far. (view spoiler) oh, and that prologue was fantastic!

Seregil's thoughts... (view spoiler)
So I think this book will see them coming more closer to each other than them starting a relation...


Bill | 2150 comments Yeah I saw that too but it seems one sided so far. I don’t think there has been any mention of Alec’s sexuality outside of that whole Ylinestra scene. I’m interested to see how it develops and over what time frame.

still having a hard time connecting to the story?

Bill | 2150 comments I’ve only read a bit further but it is starting to grab me a bit more. I think it feels a bit disjointed to me. There is a war coming but we don’t really know anything about the opponents except for the two villains. Alec and Seregil are also doing small tasks to combat the war so I think it is hard to get a grasp of the scale of the story. So I think there is a difference in what we are told and the actions of the characters that keeps me from being fully immersed. Not sure I’m really explaining it in a coherent matter.

I’m about to start listening again so will update later.

Laura (lauradragonchild) | 6216 comments Where are you with this one guys? I admit I forgot about this (*ducking head shamefully*).

But I'll start today. :)


message 13: by Bill (new) - rated it 3 stars

Bill | 2150 comments I’m just about done.

The second half has really picked up. I’m really liking Beka’s parts.


Em Lost In Books (emlostinbooks) | 2385 comments Laura, are you reading this?

Am reading it slowly and liking it very much.

@Bill - how was it for you? 3 stars... just okay?


message 15: by Laura (new) - added it

Laura (lauradragonchild) | 6216 comments I'm going at a snail pace with it. Not even quarter in. But I'll try and make a dent in it tonight.

And I also like it for now.

When are we starting Martha Wells Manju?


Em Lost In Books (emlostinbooks) | 2385 comments Can we start Wells over weekend? KD are the only books that I am able to read at a stretch right now, everything else I am a turtle... Hope by weekend I will be able to wrap up Lord of Chaos..


message 17: by Bill (new) - rated it 3 stars

Bill | 2150 comments It was just okay for me overall but I really liked the second half. I'm on mobile now and don't want to spoil anything so will add some thoughts when I get home.


message 18: by Laura (new) - added it

Laura (lauradragonchild) | 6216 comments @Manju - over the weekend is good for me. I'll try to finish this one in between and I also have Traitor's Knot starting in the morning.
My reading pace is screwed up also. Turtle turtle all around it seems. Hooe I'm not heading straight into a readimg slump. Had a phase like this at the beginning of the year and then once later on when I dropped from all already set BRs except select few.
And now I just remembered I was supposed to start Dragonmaster with Siobhan and I completely forgot about it.
Shit! (*running to search for that thread*)

Bill | 2150 comments On the relationship (view spoiler)

On Beka (view spoiler)

Is this series a trilogy with books added on or a full 7 book series? I’ve been getting the books from Hoopla but they only have the first 3 but saw that there are 7 books. I’m wondering because of the long break she took between books 3 and 4 if I can read it as a trilogy.


Em Lost In Books (emlostinbooks) | 2385 comments finally finished this one and liked it better than the previous. it was a lot darker than first book and felt like it was a complete end (specially with Seregil and Alec).

(view spoiler)

Laura (lauradragonchild) | 6216 comments I've set it on hold for now. Will surely finish it before our BR for book 3 and it may take me another week before I get to open your comments but I'll get there.


Em Lost In Books (emlostinbooks) | 2385 comments Take your time.:)
