    The Other Lands - Durham
    The Stormcaller - Lloyd
    The Twilight Herald - Lloyd
    The Grave Thief - Lloyd
    The Devil's Armor - Marco
    The Grand Design - Marco
    The Sword of Angels - Marco
    Good call on the Marco stuff, I really like him. It seems like he's hit or miss at the forum though.

    I just bought "Shadows of the Apt 5" by Adrian Tchiakovsky from bookdepository, which I can only assume is the novel The Book of Whispers that has been talked about around. But I've also seen it called The Scarab Path... so not sure what I'm getting. I just know it's book $5 i the series. Currently @ 53% off @ $5.99. Seems like it'll be released in July... he's releasing his novels at a very high pace considering that the 4th book is coming out in a month.

    But man, the description has a good dosage of spoilers... but if true it makes me exited for the next book.

    I have to admit that, like Jonathan Norrell and Mr. Strange, Marco was a 'Seak' buy.

    I just bought Mythago Wood by Robert Holdstock. I'm not very far, but it seems kind of slow. Has anyone else read it? I heard great things about it, and I'm wondering if it picks up.

    I felt that way for the first 40-50 pages, thought about putting it aside, then lost track of time as it sucked me in. At least give it that many pages before giving up. Some very good books take time to hit their stride.

    No clue why I decided to buy this, but saw that it's was @ $3.98 at bookdepository.com and said, what the heck. Not much to lose. So, I bought the recently released Deadtown by Nancy Holzner. Haven't read much Urban Fantasy, but again... what the heck.

    The way I see it is... I have 2 of the books, I've got some money left from Christmas, why not? Was going to order Feist's Magician, but I decided it's best to not start another series until I've at least finished Farseer and Dark Tower.
    It arrived. Shiiiny

    Hellions,

    You'll have to tell my how the Dragon Star series is by Melanie Rawn. I've been meaning to read it since I'm a fan of the Dragon Prince series.

    Ahem sure... but I have to read the Dragon Prince trilogy first which is lost somewhere in my huge TBR pile. Could take a while

    Haha, well I guess whoever finishes it first gets to tell the other.

    Thanks, Randy. I will definitely try to read more of it. I'm only about 20 pages into it, so I will give it another chance.
