    Those posts remind me: the SFFWorld Review of Last Argument of Kings should be appearing in the next few days.

    Bottom line, though: it's good.

    Recommended very highly.

    I just bought my first David Gemmell book today; Legend. Seeing the many positive remarks, i decided to have a go at it! The first 15 chapters were such a wonderful read!

    The Blade Itself by Joe Abercrombie
    The Lies of Locke Lamora by Scott Lynch

    It seems like so many have read these, but I really hadn't heard a thing about them until a couple of months ago. Hopefully I'll get them next week.
