Where are you in Fantasyland? February, 2023

New month, new thread.

Still reading Star Mother by Charlie N. Holmberg.

helmikuu 1, 11:35 pm

Back on Finisterre in C.J. Cherryh's Cloud's Rider. These books have for me the same somewhat claustrophobic, repetitive feeling as Hammerfall. But even Cherryh's less gripping works are still fun.

I'm enjoying the Carnival of ash in a parallel Renaissance Italy.

Finished Star Mother by Charlie N. Holmberg. Enjoyed it.

>4 seitherin: I like Sydney J. van Scyoc, but perhaps you have the wrong touchstone?

helmikuu 4, 8:14 pm

I am in Leeds on a case with Gobbelino London & a Scourge of Pleasantries.

helmikuu 5, 10:42 am

Continuing a series that is technically a re-read, but I read it so long ago that I don't remember much about it. In volume 2 now, with Sadar's Keep.

>5 rshart3: I thought I'd changed it. Thanks for the reminder. :)

In northern California with Will, Ben -- and the Feierabend family whose ancestors made a dubious bargain with Faerie creatures generations ago, leaving them in The Uncertain Places . Goldstein's usual knack for myth and archetype is very evident. I think the first book of hers I read was Dark Cities Underground years ago.

helmikuu 10, 8:09 am

I'm back to Chicago for a Ghost Story.

helmikuu 13, 12:01 am

I flew through the solar system with Space Cadet but I am back on Candar with Beltur to finish his trilogy in The Mage-Fire War.

Muokkaaja: helmikuu 14, 7:17 am

I'm in Damar with Harry. My first time reading The Blue Sword.

helmikuu 13, 8:20 am

I'm in the land of Thune reading Legends and Lattes which I picked up because I saw it recommended on LT and then saw it at my local bookstore the same day. I have to say I'm enjoying it immensely!

helmikuu 13, 10:30 am

I've been in an English manor home with visits to the faerie realm while sewing Ten Thousand Stitches with the housemaid Effie; historical fantasy by Olivia Atwater.

helmikuu 14, 10:22 am

Visiting Sartoria-Deles 100-years after Inda, in Time of Daughters, Book One.

helmikuu 20, 1:39 pm

I’m still in Westeros in Fire and Blood during the reign of King Jaeharys.

helmikuu 21, 4:36 pm

I'm heading back to Hogwarts for Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban.

>17 Narilka:, always thought I'd re-read those with my kids, but not a one of them has shown a spark of interest, oddly. I may have to strike out on my own. Always found the fifth one calls me back especially for some reason.

helmikuu 22, 1:06 pm

helmikuu 23, 9:00 am

Doing some cozy-mystery-style detective work with a mini-dragon familiar in Scales of Justice.

helmikuu 23, 7:07 pm

Spent some time in the Reaches with Moon et al. in The siren depths.

helmikuu 23, 7:47 pm

>18 Cecrow: You should go for it. I'm finding my journey back quite enjoyable.

helmikuu 23, 9:40 pm

Back in Tova with Fevered Star.

helmikuu 24, 6:10 pm

Reading about The two doctors Gorski by Isaac Feldman, about higher education in magic.

helmikuu 27, 7:05 am

Finished The wizard hunters, the first book in Martha Wells's Ile-Rien series. Three groups of people from three different societies have very different ideas about magic and what it's for. Includes some magical technology, which as usual made me wonder if it was mechanical/electrical tech or magical tech. Two of the societies have both.

helmikuu 27, 10:26 am

>28 seitherin:, what's going on with that series, is it a shared universe among these authors or tied together some other way?

helmikuu 28, 3:38 pm

>29 Cecrow: Not a shared universe thing. Most of the stories are about death. They are kind of a low level horror sort of thing.

Just arrived at Marsyas Island with Linus Baker on his way to The House in the Cerulean Sea.

maaliskuu 27, 10:43 am

Doing a re-read of The Warrior Lives, in Joel Rosenberg's Ehvenor. Unfortunately, this is one of the weaker books in the series.

maaliskuu 27, 10:43 am

Dang, sorry, wrong thread.
