    Scalzi hasn't let me down yet, so yeah, should be pretty great. I've been looking forward to this one for months.

    And as far as I know, yes - it's a standalone.

    Just Finished 'Pushing Ice-Alastair Reynolds'

    Really enjoyed it, some of the dialogue was a bit forced but the ideas and concept were really good. Just started century rain by the same author .

    Dunno if they've been mentioned here but I've recently completed reading the Shadow Dance Trilogy by David Dalglish and books 1 and 2 of the Dragonprince Trilogy by Aaron Pogue. They were all very entertaining and IMO very well written.

    Damnit Ballistic! Now I will have to look those up!

    You need to check out Farseer and Tawny Man trilogies btw. EXCELLENT writer/stories!

    I re-read Mistborn trilogy so that I could read Alloy of Law, the standalone novel set 300 years after the conclusion of Mistborn series. I'm about half way through it and it is, of course, very well written. Love the new society, characters, and the change up of the 'magic'....

    Their newborn gift

    This is good it you like romance
    Its about a lady who slept with a guy five/six years before them start of them story and has a little girl, but she is I'll and only way to save her was to have another baby by the same man which she finds out he can't have children no more. And then he remembered they frozen sperm and she uses that but it get hard because they want different things but later get along and fall for each other but they hide it from each other....

    Only about a quarter of the way into it and I'm hooked. A friend of mine recommended it to me and I need to thank him the next time I see him.

    Dalglish just recently released Blood of the Underworld, a book that takes place in the same universe as the Shadowdance Trilogy, including the same characters, but is a new trilogy titled The Watchers Blade. It was entertaining and I would recommend him as an author to anyone that liked NightAngel, Mistborn, etc...

    Also just finished the third book of the Dragonprince trilogy by Aaron Pogue, the third wasnt IMO as good as the other two but it was still a good read.

    In August Mark Lawrence will be releasing King of Thorns, a follow up to his amazing first book, Prince of Thorns. If you like rooting for the bad guy, Prince of Thorns is a blast of a read, dont take my opinion for it:

    Finished Old Mans War by John Scalzi, great read, already moved on to Ghost Brigades. Needed to step away from fantasy a little, SciFi is a nice refresher lol.

    Loved those books. Just announced - Next up from Scalzi in the Old Man's War universe, The Human Division, will initially be released in "episodes", as a series of short stories. The first "episode" he estimates coming out in December. Sounds interesting.

    Roze Hiding behind a mystery

    I'm reading Robin Hobb's Soldier Son Trilogy...and I have to say that this book is a big disappointment coming from the Tawny Man and the Liveship Trilogies. NA, I would recommend you to pass on this part of Hobb's work.

    I just reread the Farseers trilogy (originally read it about a decade ago), and am reading the Tawny Man series now (for the first time). I plan on reading most of her other work as well soon.
