Shadows of the Apt - progress update III

I have just finished The War Master's Gate, the penultimate book in the series. Just a few thoughts: I am glad to say that the quality remains high throughout the entire series, and this book is no exception. There are some new characters, and they are well rounded, and reminiscent of the characters from the start of the series. There is a feeling of a circle closing. One more book to go and I feel tingling in my fingers, eagerness to start the last installment in this true epic. I hope to find time to write something more about it when I have finished reading. Until then, keep moving forward!

Werthead's History of Fantasy - fantasy reader's heaven

One of my favorite bloggers has written a fantastic (no pun intended) series of articles on the history of fantasy literature. They represent a great read no matter if you are already well acquainted with the genre or your interest has merely been sparked by the Game of Thrones TV series or Lord of the Rings movies. You can find it here.

Shadows of the Apt - progress update II

I finished The Air War, and loved it. I immediately started reading the next book in the series: The War Master's Gate. It is not disappointing. Far from it. The series is quite long, but worth every moment. I think I will be sad when I finish.
