Finished out Plagues of Night
late last night. Excellent read. At times a little slow but with some great insight into characters. (Though, I'm not really certain how well the Ro distrusts Blackmer because she liked the last guy better sub-plot works for Ro's character.)
I also immediately started in on Raise the Dawn
last night, too. Staying up till 2:30 to get through those first 50 pages. Excited for this one. I do really appreciate DRG's ability to build interesting "enemy" characters across book one and then dispose of them literally 10 pages into the second book.
Also, I couldn't help but notice that Plagues
references the events of Indistinguishable from Magic
a few times, which makes its eventual "decanonization" even more confusing. Though I must admit that I really didn't buy Geordi's argument for downgrading in rank and it seemed like something DRG was asked to write in and he did his best to come up with something.
