Read the Demon cycle books by Peter V. Brett (Warded man, desert spear, etc.). Skipped the 4th book after reading the reviews about how it's all about side characters and doesn't advance the plot and am waiting for the 5th book that comes out in march. The story was fantastic. His writting was great and the story was easy to slid into. However, by the time I finished the 3rd book, it really felt to me like a sex starved 15 year old was writting the story. Sex was so wrapped up into the story that it really made the books a slog. If I had bought a romance novel, then fine, I know what I'm getting. All that being said, I would rate the books (collectively) 5/10.
Started the Malazan series and after 200 pages, I'm just not enjoying the read. The one guy always talking in 3rd person really annoying as hell. I will come back to it eventually.
Picked up Joe Abercrombie's "Half a" series. "Half a King" was a pretty good read, but short. Am currently working on the second one. The first took me a day to read.
