    Bah, I no longer require Ben of Iowa*. I have purchased Hawkwood and the Kings and pre-ordered Century of the Soldier, the two volumne omnibus set of Kearney's Monarchies of God series.

    * - actually, I couldn't find Iowa...

    ...and once I got there, I couldn't find Ben...

    How was the second book in the series? I just read the first book in the series and it left me on the fence as to picking up the second book.

    I went right into, but its mostly because I am desperate for some solid fantasy to read right now.

    I think the 2nd book was better than the 1st though. I don't want to say too much for fear of spoiling something but if you are also dry in books to read then I say go for it.

    Thanks for the quick reply. I may still get it based on your response, especially if it has better pacing. That was one of my issues with the fist book as there were times where it seemed to drag.

    I am not dry in books to read between what authors and publishers have sent me I have well over 45 books sitting here waiting to be read.

    Thanks again.

    I'm jealous. I've even read a few mystery books over the past few months.

    Any recommendations outside of the usual? The usual being Jordan, Martin, Erickson, Hobb, Fiest, Farland, please no Goodkind, Weeks, Sanderson, rothfuss, ect. ect.

    Well, I doubt I would ever recommend Goodkind to anyone but I have a fondness for Adrian Tchaikovsky's series Shadow's of the Apt. It starts with Empire in Black and Gold. Another series I like is The King's Bastard by Rowena Cory Daniells

    I am currently reading the omnibus Deeds of Paksenarrion by Elizabeth Moon and really enjoying it.

    On of my new favorites is Michael Sullivan's series with the last two books coming out soon. The first one in the series is the Crown Conspiracy.

    If you looking for sci fi I can't recommend more highly David Loius Edelman's Jump 225 series. It startes with Infoquake

    That is all I can think of for now, don't want to hijack the thread. But that should get you started. Hope you find at least one in those recommendation that you will enjoy. I know it's hard to find a new series to enjoy.

    So...

    From my other topic:
    Legends by Robert Silverberg (the one with King, Card (Hiss!), Goodkind and so on)
    Coraline by Neil Gaiman

    And today, I got this from a discount book store thing:
    Abarat by Clive Barker.

    Ah, but Zippo:you appeared in December 2008 touting the same book! You read it then too.

    We don't do that here at SFFWorld.

    I just bought:

    The Cracked Throne and The Vacant Throne by Joshua Palmatier
    The Rats and the Ruling Sea by Robert VS Reddick

    It's amazing to think that when I first joined this site, I had never ordered a book online before. Now that is probably how I have purchased 90% of the books (and almost solely through The Book Depository) I've bought in the last year.

    Just bought Red Sea Under Red Skies. However, I haven't even read the first book, so this is just one more book in a long line of books on my bookshelf that I may not get around to reading for a LONG time...!
