The Way of Shadows - Brent Weeks
Gardens of the Moon - Steven Erikson
Johannes Cabal the Necromancer - Jonathan L. Howard
The Magicians - Lev Grossman
The White Rabbit Chronicles: Alice in ZombielandThrough the Zombie GlassThe Queen of Zombie Hearts - Gena Showalter
The Wheel of Time: Boxed Set #1 - Robert Jordan

I want to read a great fantasy series. I like it when there are lots of mythical characters/creatures. I like it where the main characters are not normal human type. I do like Tolkien, but I want something a bit grittier. I uses to read a lot of fantasy book, but lately have found myself zipping through para romance. I have recently not been enjoying them as I uses to though. 

 

I have most of those above in complete, or near complete series. I also have King's Dark Tower books, most of Brooks' Shanara books, a lot of Robin Hobb, and Sanderson. Most of what I have I have not read past the first book and do not remember much of what they we're about.

 

 

Any suggestions would be appreciated. I don't mind if it is something I don't have, I will get it.

Review of "The Blinding Knife" (Lightbringer #2) by Brent Weeks
The Blinding Knife - Brent Weeks

I'm not sure I'm going to able to write proper reviews of the individual books in this series -- this is one of those where the entire series likely needs to be reviewed.

 

Not really a cliffhanger ending to this one, but definitely not one to read as a standalone.  Mostly everything and everyone just progresses.  Oh, I really enjoyed the read because I'm invested in these people and this world.  I wouldn't say it moved the series that far along though.

 

Yet, hard to review without spoilers.  Let's just say I loved the book, the two brothers man-in-the-iron-mask got resolved, found out more about everyone, more about banes and wights, major reveal about the oldest Guile ... and yet and yet and yet clearly more to follow with nothing exactly resolved.

 

See?  Not a very good review to basically say "loved it and found out more."

Reading progress: 80%.
The Blinding Knife - Brent Weeks

Wow, so much is happening.  Including (thankfully) a resolution to the Prism and imprisoned brother man-in-the-iron-mask-ish situation.  I think all our main characters are now at the same battle scene, which might resolve some other plot threads (it's a Brent Weeks doorstopper series so who knows?).

 

80% complete is misleading as to how long I'll take to finish because this is 700+ pages.

Reading progress: 50%.
The Blinding Knife - Brent Weeks

A reminder that Gavin drafted white luxin in the previous book (I hadn't remembered that).  And I don't think I need to add anything to this clip from the presumed villain's (Color Prince) side:

 

  

 

A Dance of Cloaks - David Dalglish    Kushiel's Dart - Jacqueline Carey   Fourth Grave Beneath My Feet - Darynda JonesDeath's Mistress - Karen Chance

 

Plus whatever library ebooks I borrow (lots on waitlist which just brought me The Blinding Knife and A Dance of Cloaks while binge-ing some series) will interrupt regular reading schedule.

 

Another bookclub read of whatever TOR offers free has turned out to be  Kushiel's Dart - Jacqueline Carey;  the 24in48 readathon July 22-23 will also disrupt or remake plans.

Reading progress update: I've read 41%.
The Blinding Knife - Brent Weeks

Well, I'm starting to think Kip will be the Lightbringer.  Partly because everyone else seems to be something else while he is still finding out what he can do and generally being a relatively decent fellow.   Plus the special dagger in his possession. Not asking anyone to comment a spoiler confirming (and I have avoided reading descriptions and reviews of later books in series); just speculating at this point in the book.
