The followup (i guess it can be called that ) to Broken Empire . Different main character, different "quest" but the madness is still there. While i didn't enjoyed Red Queen's War as much as Broken Empire (different strokes for different folks i believe ) it is still a good and enjoyable (you can read it independently of the Broken Empire but you'll miss some jokes/callbacks) series.
Bring them on , Mark Lawrence.
The golem and the jinni
Very nice, very different from the "typical" fantasy novel. The genie in the past bits were the best, i'd gladly read a full novel with those parts.
The Night Angel trilogy
It's enjoyable. A much more "typical" fantasy series with good world building and character development.Most of it presented from a stealth assassin perspective. Towards the end , the narrative kind of stumbles a bit , but overall a enjoyable read.
First 2 are the last books from the Companions Codex trilogy while the last if first book from new Homecoming trilogy.
First 2 books are fine, they reminded me of the old school Drizzt stories, even the cast of characters are very.....familiar. The last one is pretty bad though. The entire books is used as a setup for the cooler things to happen next.
Names are all wrong in the Warhammer fantasy universe. I mean, who calls a badass vampire "Radu" ? Seriously, it's a vampire not a baker.
Anyway, the premise in "Curse of the necrarch " is very straightforward : big fight between humans and undead. That's basically it. There is some "background" plot to this but it's not really that interesting (or sufficiently developed). Overall i'd say the books is kind of meh.
This is the first book i've read in the Warhammer fantasy setting. It's actually a collection of 3 stories "tied" together with 2 short ones. It's the story of a ragtag group of human soldiers who do different "jobs" for the Empire in exchange for their freedom. Overall the quality is okeish, nothing bad but nothing great either.
Just reading the classics. Although scifi is not my favorite genre, it makes sense to read what is apparently ranked as the world's best-selling science fiction novel. Overall i enjoyed the first book. I wouldn't go as far
as say it's a "great book" , but it's enjoyable. I enjoyed the characters, world building and the
environment/ecology part of the story (apparently Dune is the first book which deals with the environment/ecology subject). The story both drags in some parts and rushes in the other (especially in the second half) but it's not that bad.
Dune Messiah, on the other hand, it's a completely different kind of book. I understood why the book is written like that (the whole book basically "deals" with the psychological state of the main character after the events of the first book) but , in the end, the book is very different from the first one. It (mostly) lacks "action" and the tone is very different from the first one (not in a good way).
Overall, i'd say the first 2 books are not good enough to make me want to read the rest of them.
