I'd do nothing but reading if I could (ok, maybe eat some great food, buy some fancy shoes between two books...oh, and spend some quality time with the gorgeous guy I married while I am on reading-break anyway...)

Currently reading

Ghosts of Empire (Book 4 of The Empire of Bones Saga)
Terry Mixon
The Handmaid's Tale
Margaret Atwood
Trek Science - mit Warpgeschwindigkeit in die Zukunft? (German Edition)
Inga Nielsen, Stefan Thiesen

I still like Ridge and Sardelle better...

Patterns in the Dark (Dragon Blood Book 4) - Lindsay Buroker

But the group as a whole was quite enjoyable to read.

 

I liked Tolemek as a character - I liked his banter with Jaxi, the sentient soulblade, his quabble with Ridge and his over-all nerdy pirate-ness (quite the combination!).

 

Cas will never become a favouorite, she is just to meh for my taste.

 

I loved the where the story is going - not so sure about all the hints for the next installment, but I LOVE THAT THERE IS A LIVE DRAGON.

 

This will be so good!

 

Here some of my favourite quotes to illustrate the strength of dialoge and the BANTER:

 

"Anyone else disturbed by the people eating brains?" Zirkander asked, stepping past the body and waving a hand toward the carvings on the walls. 

"I was hoping that was merely cereal in a skull-shaped ceramic bowl," Duck said.

"I am trying not to look," Sardelle said.

---------

"I'd be better," Duck said weakly, "if someone was holding my head and fondling my hair."

"Uh," Zirkander said."I guess I could if you want to crawl over here."

"I meant a woman, sir."

"Well, if you're going to be picky, I can't help you."
