Finished the Riyria series, and the two prequels.

Michael J. Sullivan did very well. Fantasy, but not in a long longwinded boring style. Quick and to the point and awesome.
Start with Theft of Swords.

Well, finished The John Carter Trilogy a while ago, I enjoyed it and suggest anyone who likes sci-fi reads it. It's just has this great old flavour to it.

Got my Name of the Wind book back and read it, and am now reading book two again. It just reads so easy for me, really looking forward to book three.

Read Gardens of the Moon by Steven Erikson, borrowed it from a friend who suggested it, first book of a series by him from way back. I did enjoy it, I found it a much easier read than a more recent book of his I picked up a little while back. But now that I think about it something is niggling in the back of my head about it, a very minor complaint but I can't think of it now. I would keep reading the series if I get my hands on it.

Finally finished reading the Sword of Truth series, been waiting since high school to finish it. I felt it wrapped up very nicely, almost too easily, but when it comes to a world of magic like that it didn't hurt my suspension of disbelief. I thought the very last chapter was so perfect. I really grew to like those characters and am somewhat sad that the story is over. Guess I'll just have to read it all again back to back sometime.

I feel like I have to make a trip to the book store again now.

Bit of a Necro but I think I have the complete series. I'll check when I get home.

Born4Evil seriously sounds like the devil himself, and its awesome. That gun is hands down the most badass gun in my mind.
