They're quick reads Took me about 2-3 days per book at most.
And yeah, the Mass Effect books tie in to the game series. Book 1 is a prequel to Game 1, Book 2 links 1 + 2, and I've (embarassingly) no idea where book 3, Retribution, ties in. They touch upon events that happen or characters, but they're not about Commander Shepard (whom you play as in the games) so I guess they're suppliments more than anything. Drew Karpyshyn is the lead writer (I think) of the game series and he's a capable author, and I can't fault either book in the series so far.

Any idea whether Butcher has anything else planned for the Codex Alera Series? First Lord's Fury left A LOT of openings for more plot lines.

Anyone hear anything on Blood Ninja by Nick Lake, The Holy Machine by Chris Beckett or How to Live Safely in a Science Fictional Universe by Charles Yu (all Autumn 2010 releases from Corvus Atlantic)? Review copies of these, plus Fitch by VanderMeer, are heading my way soon, just wondering which one I should go for first.

Only thing I have seen on Blood Ninja is positive of course it is via Amazon so take it for what it is worth.

Well some updates on more anticipated releases this year considering new books I've read and also reviews I've seen around:
Cold Magic by Kate Elliott - Early word has been good, so looking forward to it.
Vicious Grace by M.L.N. Hanover (Daniel Abraham) - 3rd book in The Black Sun's Daughter series.
The Last Page by Anthony Huso - If early word on this is to be believed, this release deserves more hype than it has been getting.
March in Country by E.E. Knight - Latest in The Vampire Earth series.
The Road to Bedlam by Mike Shevdon - 2nd book in The Courts of Feyre series.
An Artificial Night by Seanan McGuire - 3rd book in the October Daye series.
Kill the Dead by Richard Kadrey - Sequel to Sandman Slim.
A Devil in the Details by K.A. Stewart - Heard it's a decent read that appeals to Dresden fans, just got released.
Resurrection by Tim Marquitz - Sequel to Armageddon Bound.
Anyone has any more books worth mentioning about releases this year not already mentioned in the thread?
