The Armored Saint by Myke Cole. A brisk 200 page fantasy set in a world where use of magic can lead to essentially a portal to hell opening , so all magic is banned and dealt with harshly. Rather enjoyed it , it could do with some more meat on the bone but well worth a read.

The Court of Broken Knives by Anna Smith Spark. It starts off with a mercenary company being hired to off the Emperor of a dying Empire. And then it all kicks on from there. I loved this book , thoroughly loved it.
Stylistically it's a little different from your usual fantasy, based around the POV of 4 main characters and for me I felt you could feel the different styles she gave each one. Absorbing and gripping I really want the next one.

Also had Bruce Campbell in the store on Monday night and for one of the few times I totally fan boyed out over an author and got my copies of If Chins Could Kill and Hail to the Chin ( and my DVD of Bubba Ho-Tep ) signed. Epic night, loads of happy customers. Hail to the king baby.

(busy busy busy set myself a new steps record of over 28k >_< )

Finished the first Mistborn book: The Final Empire. Its stunning. Simply brilliant. The story is not quite as intricate as The Stormlight Archive series but its just as brilliant. You could probably argue that its a bit more accessible as the concepts raised arent quite as outlandish as The Stormlight Archive. The last 100 pages or so had my jaw dropping in a way I havent experienced since I read about The Red Wedding, followed by Joffreys Wedding in ASOIAF.

Onto the second book now: Well Of Ascension. As with the first, its a bit of a slow start. However this time its due to Sanderson re-explaining all the concepts he introduced in the first book. Its not a sequel, its part 2 of the story, so this really grates and slows down the narrative. Ive powered through it though and about 40% of the way into the book its started picking up again.

Hannah Green and Her Unfeasibly Mundane Existence by Michael Marshal Smith. A rather wonderful tale of a young girl who finds out her grandfather isn't quite who he seems and has been working for the Devil for a while. Whimsical , funny and enjoyable. It loses a bit of steam towards the end it's fair to say , but really enjoyed it overall.

Peter V Brett's Painted Man books. I had totally overlooked these but my To Read pile collapsed the other week and the first one was found lying amongst the wreckage. Thoroughly enjoyable so far and halfway through The Desert Spear now without any hint of it slowing down

City of Brass - S.A. Chakraborty

Fantasy set in the middle east around the time of Napoleon. Fairly standard trope of young woman accidentally finds out she has djinni heritage and becomes a target in various political and magical machinations . Technically the writer isn't the best , she's clearly in her debut novel and there are bits that really stick out because of that. But it was an enjoyable read despite that. The djinni / Arabian nights style setting is well done , fun to read. Will happily read the next instalment.

Circe by Madeline Miller.

The story of Circe , daughter of the Titan Helios , who is exiled to an island for casting a spell. It touches on many moments from Greek myth and works like the Odyssey.

It is a retelling of obviously classical myth and touches on familiar names and events but it is also a more modern take on gender, power and it's abuse.

Frankly I thought it was magnificent. The interactions between the gods and mortals, the petty fighting between , the style it was written in and Circe's internal monologue . The book itself is also beautifully done.

Read so much recently:

Mistborn: The Well Of Ascension - A little slow to get going but a great way to continue the story. kept me hooked throughout and really helped develop some of the characters from the first book.

I Am Legend - Yes, that one. No, not the same as the film. In fact it barely even resembles the same story. Its still about one man being left in a world inhabited by vampires but that is where the similarities end. Its not the first time Ive read this and frankly, Im sure it wont be the last. Its a borderline short story (at around 100 pages) and should be read by anybody into the horror genre. The final chapters revelations are what makes this book so good and its why the film fucked it up so badly.

The Painted Man - Very VERY slow to get going but Im glad I persisted. Really novel concept and characters that I actually cared about. This is a great novel for anybody looking for an easier read in the fantasy genre. A Song Of Ice And Fire this is NOT but its still a great read with a somewhat anticlimactic ending. Mostly because its leading into the next book in the series, which I will give a go at some point.

Horus Rising - Again, not the first time I read it. However last time I kind of rushed myself through it and probably missed a lot of the little details that Dan Abnett was laying out. This time I took my time and paid attention to everything. NOBODY puts an image into my head quite like Dan Abnett and this is one of his best works ever. Worth a read for anybody interested in WH40k or Sci-Fi.

And now Im reading Mistborn: The Hero Of Ages. Already started a lot better than The Well of Ascension did, as it doesnt feel the need to re-establish all the concepts and themes that the first book did. Its just straight into the story, only very lightly touching on concepts and moments of history that you may have forgotten. 20% in right now and hooked just the same way the first one did.

Embers of War by Gareth Powell. Entertaining space action by the author of Ack-Ack Macaque.
Post war setting where a former warship the Trouble Dog resigns it's commission and joines the House or Reclamation to help rather than destroy. The ship and it's crew head to a solar system where the planets have been carved into giant sculptures to help a downed liner and shenanigans.

Really quite enjoyed it , good characters, good plot and always nice to have another good addition to the pantheon of AI warships. Looking forward to the next one!

The Hero Of Ages done. A great trilogy, although you could just read The Final Empire and its a good self-enclosed story on its own. For anyone into fantasy novels especially where the bad guy is essentially an evil "God", this series is well worth your time. Should make for a good film series in the future too (They're apparently writing the script for The Final Empire now)

Now moving onto the Extracted trilogy. Time travel Sci-Fi bollocks.

I'll be gone in the dark by Michelle McNamara

An utterly magnificent piece of writing. I'd had it on the shelf for a few months having heard bits of the story about the hugely prolific offender who wasn't well know and apparently uncaught over the years and that tragically the author had died before finishing the book.

The arrest of the Golden State Killer suspect - but it's totally him - spurred me to read this next.

It was truly a fantastic read. Her style and prose is just so absorbing. Factual without being voyeuristic , detailed without being titillating or exploitative. Her accounts of the attacks chilling and at times rage inducing. The accounts of her search for answers and piecing together the facts are both warm and funny and obsessive.

She has a real knack for evoking those early 1970 sleepy Californian towns and suburbs and the paranoia and claustrophobia and madness this guys actions were causing.

It was such a gripping and absorbing read , I can't praise it enough and it's with a real sense of sadness , knowing there won't be any more work from her.

Absolutely mesmerising.

Read Azincourt and the Heretic Trilogy by Bernard Cornwell last week.

Started all the Raymond Feist books again. Going to try to read them all one after the other in order. I think I've got a couple of the later ones missing, so I'll buy them when I'm a book behind each one.

Currently enjoying Semosis by Sue Burke. Very exo/anthropological leaning colony tale with some up to date concepts around human integration in other ecosystems. A few slightly hasty plot leaps to swallow but it's very alive regardless. Avoid reviews for this, they're really spoilery for some reason.

Gunpowder Moon by David Pedreira was a short but sweet moon mining murder mystery with a shamelessly cliched war-scarred old protagonist in the middle of it all. I could have read more, I hope he writes another dose.

I've just finished the first of the grail trilogy and loved it. Looking forward to my commute on Monday so I can start Vagabond.

The first one JUST about grabbed me enough to keep reading. Its a very interesting idea but VERY poorly written. Thankfully, the 2nd book has gotten off to a much better start and the dialogue is no longer painful to read so Im hoping that continues through to the end.
