Did 'Boy' get his loyalty tested yet?
lol, yeah, he was heartbroken as if a women tore his heart apart XD I just have to say that the introduction of Assassin Apprentice wasn't really great :/ It was dull and boring as it talked about the creating of the 6 Duchies that wasn't of my interest to me. I think Hobb should have started with Frisk coming into the keep.

It did start a little slow for me as well, I also started to hate the little back story at start of each chapter... feel like he could have just incorperated that into first few chapters better... but o well... i'm nitpicking now. Love the characters, the intrigue, the world..... can't wait to see how book 2 ends

Like I said, the beginning is quite slow but really picks up and then you really can't put down the books. The series goes Farseer Trilogy and then the Tawny Man trilogy. Inbetween there is the liveship traders that takes place in the same time frame as the first trilogy, but all different characters. Some references are made in the Tawny man, but none significant. After that is the Rain Wilds which is a super prequel or something in that manner, haven't picked that up yet, but most people stick to the regular six books and are quite happy. Glad you both enjoy it so far though!

Long time no post, been busy, but seeing as this is my favorite thread here:

I read the Drenai series based on suggestions here.

I read the Sword of Truth series based on suggestions here.

Read a bunch of other books too, lol...

If anyone likes fiction I highly recommend Kevin Hearne's Iron Druid Series. He's been averaging a book a year. Highly entertaining reads, laugh out loud funny, and the fact that the main character plays pranks on Celtic, Native American, Roman, and Norse gods, has arrows blessed by the Virgin Mary and in one instance sits down to eat Fish and Chips and does shots/drinks beer with Jesus, yeah, you really cant go wrong. Doesnt hurt the author is native to AZ and some of the places in the books are area's that I have frequented.

Also for scifi action junkies, Joe Ledger series by Jonathan Maberry. Starts with Patient Zero, then The Dragon Factory, then King of Plagues, and just released last week was Assasin's Code.

Maberry also has a trilogy that is set in the horror genre, it was a great read as well, the Pine Deep series.

If you want a real series to read, go pick up gotek and felix, by William King. Don't let the warhammer 40k throw you off. It's a bunch of short stories (that do build somewhat off of each other) of this dwarf who tries to commit suicide by fighting the biggest and baddest demons he can find while his friend a poet must accompany him and write down all of his tales. Really well written, full of action and all around a great series.

I will keep that in mind for my future reading. Like Nick, I think your reading style in Fantasy is similar to mine

The Iron Druid Series is awesome. I just finished it a few weeks ago.

Currently I'm reading Sacre Bleu! by Christopher Moore.

I told you the Assassin's Quest was like the best series I've ever read ever haha. A lot of people said that the Balgariad (spelling) by David Edding is possibly one of the best fantasy books, ever, ever ever written. I'll be picking that up after I finish the way of the kings by brandon sanderson, which I cannot put down right now...

I first read the Belgariad when I was in 7th grade, about 20 years ago.... its a 5 book series followed by another 5 book series The Mallorean... truly epic...

The Tamuli anf The Elenium are also awesome, along with The Redemption of Athalaus

I enjoyed Belgariad and read the series countless of times. I don't think any series can ever top LOTR for best fantasy. After reading the Balgariad, I would suggest you read Balgarath the Sorcerer. It deals with Balgarath's life and is a masterpiece That's my favourite of all of Eddings' work.

Can't agree with that more. Belgariad, Mallorean, then Belgarath, then Polgara

Honestly, I could barley read the LOTR books. I mean i finished the first and gave up half way through the second. I felt there was WAY too much dialog, not enough going on and a lot of stuff that wasn't needed though.

Nearly finished the Girl who Played with Fire??? The second book in the Millennium series.

Not sure what's next on my list. Too many books, too little time.

Okay, I am rereading all these right now, first read them about 15 years ago. Currently on "The Ruby Knight". (I blew threw the Belgariad last week on my kindle, lol I had a lot of free time at work).

I have also read the assassin books by Hobb (I think as they were being published) Didn't know there were other books in that same setting, I will have to check those out soon.

I am also reading "The Graveyard Book" by Neil Gaiman. It's not long, but has an intimate association with recent tragedies so it is hard for me to read much of it without putting it down and reading something else for a while.

Yea I just started The Tawny Man series which picks up where assassin series leaves off. Kudos to chaos for recommending this awesome series.



And I re read sparhawk series recently. Forgot how much I loved it. David Eddings in general really. Though his last series (wrote while suffering from dementia) kinda blew....

I thought Stephen King was done with the Dark Tower series, even if the new one is supposed to be kind of a side story. Hard to believe it's been 8 years since the last one. I need to catch up, but it's such a daunting task to start on.

I agree. This is the first series in AGES that I can't predict where it's going. Everything is simply an enjoyable surprise to read.

Chaos, what's the series after this one?

I know!!

And I think he said this is it on Fitz' story, but that there is a series that runs concurrent to Farseer/Tawny (different characters, same world). At least I *think* thats how he explained it. Will have to shot over to RH site again and look it up.

I haven't been reading lately, thats actually a bad thing.

Last series of books I read was the Camulod chronicles by Jack Whyte. Really good twist on the King Arthurian legend. Made it like an historical fiction story without all the magic and such. Used real roman history and events and intertwined the story into it. Really good books.

Also I will always recommend the Asimov Robots / Galactic Empire / Foundation series novels. Classic for the sake of being classic!

Haha been away for a while. I'd check out the mistborn series first before anything else. If you read that, then check out codex of alera series by Jim Butcher. Great great series!

I am re-reading The Hobbit (for about the 15th time). I want it to be fairly fresh in my head for when the movie is released.

Just finished the Tawny Man series. Robbin Hobb's books are the first where I can't predict what will happen next. There were so many new surprises that I was simply on the edge of my bed while I was reading.

I'm now reading the Liveship Traders which happens during the Tawny Man series

I'll have to read that next also. Not quite done yet with tawny




Can't believe how good these 2 series have been.

To all: Farseer trilogy and Tawny Man trilogy are Nick/Roze approved

I just finished the first 5 in the Wool series. I was surprised at how much I enjoyed it. Didn't realize there was a #6 out, but will definitely check it out.

I'm currently reading "The Mongoliad" by Greg Bear, Neal Stephenson, et al, but just getting started so can't yet recommend it.

Possibly big news for Wool fans -

20th Century Fox has bought the screen rights to Wool. The project is being produced and/or directed by Ridley Scott (Alien, Blade Runner, Gladiator, etc.), and written by Steven Zaillian, (sreenplays for Schindler's list, Blackhawk Down and Moneyball among others.) Wow! Of course deals like this are made all the time without anything ever making it to the theaters, but if this works out, it should be awesome!

Here's Hugh on the deal:

The basic gist of the story is (trying not to spoil anything here...) - Man has made the world uninhabitable and the handful left has been forced to live in an underground silo. All talk of going outside is forbidden and punishable by being sent to Cleaning - going outside to clean the camera lenses (with a Wool pad) that let the people of the silo view what's left of the world - and certain death.

The first "book" was a short story, so it's hard to go into much detail without giving a lot away. If you're on the fence, by Wool 1 for only $0.99 and see what you think. I'll bet your hooked.

HTH.
