I wish I'd been there at the panal you did Jana. Maybe someday I can do that at a World con. I was reading your story again and you write beautifully. I'm really looking forward to Women at War now. I think you will have a lot of fans lining up for your autograph very soon. You need a message board too. lol I think stephen Lawhead is a great author too Laurence. I haven't read him lately but I plan to get back into his work. He got into a direction I wasn't interested in but I plan to read him again. I miss his work and know he is a good author. I hope we all can reunite at World con in LA in 2006. I'm looking forward to that one already.

Hello Cheryl and everyone else,I have only recently joined this merry band, a few weeks ago I sent an e-mail to Janny to say how much I had enjoyed reading Traitor's Knot, thanks for the invitation to join in Janny.

Terry Goodkind also writes a gripping tale. I recently obtained the first two books of a trilogy by ANSELM AUDLEY,this is a new author to me, have any of you read his works? Cheers from Laurence.

Cheryl,

Thank you for the vote of confidence. You made my evening.

Oh, I am reading one of Lawhead's myself right now "Avalon" the return of King Arthur. I've read it before, but I felt it was time to read it again.

It's fun - and I liked it more than his historical Arthur books, though those weren't bad either.

What is Avalon about Sandtiger? I don't know what type of series he is writing now and was wondering? Welcome Laurence.

It's an urban fantasy about a guy in Scotland who learns he's heir to the British throne just as the country is about to dissolve the monarchy. And of course, he's the reincarnation of King Arthur...

Laurence,
Welcome to the number one board in all the universes. It's led by the greatest team: The T & J duo Trys and Janny.

Have not yet read any of Audley's works. Perhaps you can post an assessment when you've finished reading the 1st 2 of his trilogy.
Thanks,
Frank

Just finished reading Michelle West's six book saga "The Sun Sword" which I found to be outstanding. Stayed up reading thru several nights because I just could not put the particular book down. I do indeed love to read books involving lots of sword fights/wars particularly when demons are included. Several really neat plot twists kept the saga exceptiuonally interesting.

Book six consisted of 957 pages which is right up my alley. She spent around 4000 pages leading up to the great war and then spent about 100 pages describing it, which lasted about 12 hours. Great stuff!!

Icing on the cake could have been had, had she included some steamy love scenes. The loving scenes that she did include were very sweet and to the point.

Highly recommend it if you haven't read it yet.

Must now purchase her earlier work: two book series "The Sacred Hunt".

Am now reading Guy Kay's "A Song for Arbonne". Into the first 60 pages and it appears to be very entertaining.

Come on TK, I'm running out of good books to read.
Frank

Hello to you all, and thanks for the welcome! As I live in the Shetland Islands in the UK., and they lie within the 60th degree of latitude this means that our winters are long, hence there is plenty of time to read. By the way Frank Traitors Knot is well worth the wait, I will post my opinion on Anselm Audley's books in due course. Skol from Laurence.

That sounds great Sandtiger thanks on that. Frank, you make me want to finish Michelle's books right now. They are so thick. It is hard for me to get through those thick ones like them and I'm behind. I do love her writing and think she's great. Hunter's Oath and Hunter's Death are in my top five list of favorites. I met her and she is the nicest person and spent time chatting with us even though there was a line behind us. It was exciting to meet her and Janny this last year. I'm glad Michelle's conclusion is great and with lost of wars and demon's still causing trouble. lol
