Shannon | 101 comments Just started. I'm only at the beginning of chapter two.

yay!


Shannon | 101 comments Awesome! :)


Anni | 5020 comments Have you guys read Messenger’s Legacy? It's listed as 3.5 and I saw reviews that it helps understanding events in book 4, so maybe we should squeeze it in?


Shannon | 101 comments No, I haven't read that one yet, Sir Anni. I've been wondering about those extra short stories he wrote and when the best time to read them is. It looks like most people recommend you read that book before The Skull Throne.

I might not be able to get my hands on a copy for a few weeks, but if you and Rob want to read it now, I have no problem with that at all!

Anni | 5020 comments Naaah, all for one, one for all :D If you want to read it, I don't mind waiting. We could be truly rebellious and read it between book 4 and 5


Shannon | 101 comments Thanks, Sir Anni! :)

I did manage to get my hands on a copy! Do you and Rob want to take a short pause and read it? I think it might help us appreciate this story a bit more, and I think it's pretty short. But if you and Rob would rather wait, we can read it after and fill in the blanks that way. I'd be fine with either. :)

Anni | 5020 comments Me too, I guess it's Rob's turn to decide then.

I haven't made much progress on book 4 so far, I only 2 chapters in and (view spoiler)


Shannon | 101 comments I'm not that far either. I just started chapter five. I'm liking it so far!

Rob (nefariasbredd) | 1814 comments I'm to chapter Chapter 6 myself. .So far so good. I think I'll go back and read 3.5 after this book (yes, so rebellious! ) rather than stop now.


Shannon | 101 comments Okay, rebellious it is! I'll probably read it after as well.

Just starting chapter 8.

Indeed! I can't believe she stayed so calm...


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

Anni | 5020 comments I finished chapter 10 and I'm really curious, how the author plan to end this book. I asume, by the title of book 5, that the final fight will happen there, so I'm really curious what will happen here. I do hope that we'll learn more of the corelings and their "society"!

Rob (nefariasbredd) | 1814 comments I'm into Chapter 15 and just shy of about half-way.

I think my favorite character to read about right now is Roger and his family. (view spoiler)

Arlen/Jardir(view spoiler)

(view spoiler)


Shannon | 101 comments I'm curious about that too, Sir. Anni. I hope we get to see a lot more with the corelings and what it's like for them down below! They seem very insect-like, but also super intelligent. They're pretty interesting!

I'm curious about your spoilers, Rob! Hopefully I'll catch up to where you are soon.

I'm almost done with chapter 12. (view spoiler)

Agreed! I do like the book and I'm still curious how it will end, but it isn't a series I would recommend someone or even re-read. I really wish I would like it more than I do...

Yes, Sir Anni! (view spoiler)

I'm right behind you on chapter 22. :)

Rob (nefariasbredd) | 1814 comments I finished last night.....wondering if we should let everyone else catch up before we dive into the Core?

I'm fine with waiting for the others to catch up. I have plenty to read to keep me busy, and I also want to read that novella about Briar. I'm fine with whatever you and Sir Anni want to do! :)

Rob (nefariasbredd) | 1814 comments I certainly have plenty to read and can wait a bit as much as I want to dive in.


message 29: by Anni (new) - rated it 3 stars

Anni | 5020 comments I finished as well and I wouldn't mind a break at all. Firstly because I have too many books I want to read right now and secondly because I became a little bored by the story and the way it was told...

Last quater of the book (view spoiler)

I don't think they're that great really. Just interesting enough to get closure and in retrospect as you put it (view spoiler)

Yes, no matter what you do, the world continues to spin, so you may as well make sure you're having fun.


Shannon | 101 comments I think I'm liking this series a lot more than you guys. :)

I just started chapter 27. (view spoiler)

And that's great, don't let me ruin your enjoyment 😅

I'm curious as well, I think his backstory could be really interesting!


Shannon | 101 comments I think it's great we all have different opinions about it, Sir Anni. It makes for more interesting conversation about it! :)

I'm just starting chapter 31 and should be finished tomorrow. (view spoiler)


Shannon | 101 comments Finally finished! :)

Siobhan (poi5ongirl) | 7655 comments I'm reading book #3.5, Messenger's Legacy - does anyone know where it falls chronologically? It said the year at the start but with it being audio I can't remember what year we were up to in the Daylight War.

Siobhan (poi5ongirl) | 7655 comments Can I just say as well, the voices on the Graphic Audio are awful! I can't take it seriously at all! haha :')

Rob (nefariasbredd) | 1814 comments I haven't read the short story. Guess I'll give it a whirl before we eventually head to...the Core.


message 45: by Anni (new) - rated it 3 stars

Anni | 5020 comments I changed my mind and started it earlier and I'm glad I've got the normal audiobook. That doesn't sound good... Graphic Audios are always a complete win or complete fail for me, no middle ground 😅

She really is such a strong character!

I already finished it and I enjoyed it even more than the full length novels :) More focus on the corelings and the resulting situation, less focus on the relationship and the characters sex life...


Shannon | 101 comments I'll get started today! Awesome! :)

Glad you enjoyed it! That's a good point about the focus.


Shannon | 101 comments I found a collection of novellas on Scribd, so I've been listening to those. Just finished The Great Bazaar and Brayan's Gold. Now I'm about to start Messenger's Legacy! :)
