About halfway through The Gutter Prayer right now. I'm struggling with it a bit... not really finding much connection with the characters.
I’m just leaving Elantra where Kaylin, Severn and companions were Cast in Courtlight.
Currently visiting an alt-Indian country whose name has too many syllables for me to remember, in The Jasmine Throne.
Finished Battle Ground, the latest Dresden Files book. I like the series, but it does suffer from the common supernatural series syndrome of continuous escalation of powers of both protagonist & foes. But he does manage to carry it off, still. Despite the fact that the entire book was one continuous slugfest, he manages to keep enough human interest in it to flesh it out. There are few series that I've been willing to carry through this many volumes, but I'm up for the next one.
I've just arrived in Cairo, 1912, looking for A Master of Djinn
Heading back to Sartorias-deles for one more visit with Inda & friends in Treason's Shore.
Not strictly fantasy, but I just started House of Leaves. It is supposedly quite a crazy ride.
Just spent some time in London with Alex Verus, in Burned. It's basically Dresden Files translated into England, but Jacka does it well & with some twists of his own. For some reason I lost sight of the series several years ago, so now I have several more to read. Anyone who can convincingly present a giant hairy spider as a sympathetic motherly character deserves respect. :-)
I've just finished a visit to Ankh-Morpork, where Moist von Lipwig was Going Postal. Not sure yet where I'm going next.
