Due to lack time in March I haven't got much reading in, and when I have it is rereading something. The last week or so I've been dipping
into Lloyd Alexander's Prydain Chronicles it was the 1st fantasy series I have ever read and it
remains one of my favorites. Good old Doli. This weekend I plan on starting David Coe's "Seeds of Betrayal" which has been sitting on my bookshelf for about six months unread.

Santiger,
Either you're taking a very, very long train ride or you read very, very fast. or maybe both to get through books 5 and 6 of the "Sun Sword" as you indicate. Book 5 has 800 plus pages and I assume book 6 is as lengthy. My son picked up book 6 at the B & N in Houston so I have not seen it yet as it is a 3.5 hour drive from here to his house. Won't see it until he visits here for some bass fishing two weeks hence.

In book 5 the war has begun so it's really heating up. Love it!!
Frank

I can answer for Sandtiger, She reads very, very fast. lol I wish I read as fast as she does. Bruce you make me feel better leaving a book on a shelf for six months. Now I don't feel so guilty because I do that too. 800 pages takes me three months. lol But I don't read it all at once. I like to space it out.

I do read pretty quickly, but not quite that fast - I was exagerating. :-)

I figure I'll read book 5 on the train trip this weekend (4 hours each way) and then do the same with book six in two weekends when I have to do the trip again.

Just finished Carol Berg's trilogy - that began with Transformation -- a nice read, in particular the first two books were walloping good stories.

Yeah, so glad you liked her trilogy Janny. I know she's commented that she's enjoying WOLAS. I loved Transformation. I read it in a few days which is a record for me. I also read Curse of the Mistwraith that fast too. Both are my very favorites. You can't beat Seyonne and Arithon.

Sometimes it would be nice to read faster then I do, about 15-20 pages an hour, just so I can get through it fast and yet sometimes I'm glad I read slow since I can enjoy the book longer.

Reading Chainfire right now. Three hundred pages in and I'm glad it's not about Richard at the moment. I've not really been able to enjoy this book with the constant repetition in everything that's said.

I'll have to slug through the other 362 pages because I dropped the $30 to get TK from the UK. That new thread of spoilers got me reading it and in a frustated mood of not being able to follow it I cracked lol. Now only if I'd just done this 4 months ago...

I am currently reading Tanya Huff's Smoke and Shadows. (It just came out in Paperback)

I am loving it so far - Tony's voice is very unique, and some of the one-liners are excellent. Not to mention, it takes place in Vancouver, (where I lived for a year) on the set of a show called "Darkest Night." For any who were fans of Forever Knight the TV show, it'll give you a good chuckle.

Also noticed that the cover for "Women of War" is now up at Amazon. It comes out the first week of July...only three months to wait!

I loved Smoke and Shadows and Smoke and Mirrors is coming out in June in the US. Just missing May. I do love Tony and it was like Tanya was reading my mind when she wrote these books for Tony. I wanted him to be in the books more with Henry and I think she gave me my wish. They are great books though and she's great with humor. I look forward to your short story in Women of War. It was great at the reading you did. I loved it. I anxiously await a full novel from you one day.
