Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I finished up the Iron Druid Chronicles novella, Grimoire of the Lamb last night. It was a fun short little prequel adventure.
I also read the first issue of the Vertigo comics series Hinterkind that I got as a freebie on Comixology a couple months ago. It was pretty cool. I had been planning on getting either the first book in Moria Young's Dustlands series, Blood Red Road, or the first book in Julie Kagawa's Iron Fey series, The Iron King, as my next book purchases, but now I'm tempted to get the first Hinterkind collection instead. Decisions, decisions.

Finally posted my review on the latest Star Trek read "The Edge of the Sword" by Kevin Ryan which you can see here if you are interested.

I really enjoyed the book and have actually although rocketed through the other books in the trilogy!

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I just finished reading Star Trek Vanguard Storming heaven by David Mack. I really enjoyed reading this series of books this summer. It's a terrific series. I really liked the stories and the characters. I'm so glad Seekers is continuing events from the Vanguard series. I just finished reading Seekers book 2.It's also a great story too .I really like these Tos era books! I'm now reading Impact by Douglas Peterson.

I'm about 6 chapters in on Star Wars: A New Dawn. Not bad so far, although I'm kinda tired of cybernetic badguys in the star wars universe.

I picked up KRAD's A Time for War, A Time for Peace at random from my shelf, and got sucked in. 1/3 the way through, and it's reminding me how much of a fan of Worf that I am. He's not trapped in that embassy with the Klahb, they're stuck in there with him! Love it

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I finished The Cold Dish, the first Walt Longmire novel, by Craig Johnson. I'm a fan of the TV show, so I thought I'd give the novels it's based on a try. It was a little different from the show, but not in a bad way. I enjoyed the story and look forward to reading more in the series.

I then reread Star Trek: SCE: The Belly of the Beast. I started SCE a few years ago but stopped after Foundations for some reason.

I then read the Supernatural comic, The Dogs of Edinburgh. In all honesty, it kinda sucked. The art was horrible, the characters didn't look anything like the actors, and the colors were just a lot of dark earth tones. The story also left a lot to be desired, there are basically two separate stories, linked by one character and her relationship with Sam. The monsters in the first and second stories are completely unrelated, and the titular dogs are only in the first. Also, the first story gives no real explanation about the villain, and the monsters in the second story were just plain uninteresting. IMO, this volume is completely skippable.

I'm now reading the first Star Trek: Seekers novel, Second Nature, by David Mack.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Still not reading Star Trek. Sigh. Read another 40 short stories. Read "Safe People" by Henry Cloud & John Townsend (1995) and have started reading "The Examined Life" by Robert Nozick (1989).

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I finished reading The Seekers 2. I don't know, it didn't seem as good as the first one.

Now reading Lust's Latinum Lost (And Found) This is bloody hilarious. Gotta love Quark!

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

It's my favourite Titan book With the "Torrent Sea" just behind it (I'm re-reading them, so their quality is not an enigma ).

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I just finished reading The Third Kingdom by Terry Goodkind . It certainly was a longwinded &boring story. I also finished reading Impact by Douglas Preston it certainly was a fast paced exciting story.

That's exactly what I thought about The Third Kingdom when I read it a year ago. I am weary about reading the new book Severed Souls.
