^Great thanks. Yeah, I already have it ordered at amazon.co.uk but it's not out till after Ghost Story here. I am hoping Amazon.com have it on kindle and I can get it earlier that way but I doubt I'll be able to get it that way.
Yeah, took me about half the first book to get in to Codex Alera but once I did I loved that too, in certain aspects I'd put it above Dresden, but Dresden is more consistent and there's more of it to love. I keep meaning to buy Jim's Spider-man book too, but haven't got round to it yet.
