I decided that we weren't going to continue using the 2014 reading discussion... So here's a new one for the new year!

(And since this thread has but a few pages, might as well use it for 2017, as well.)

(Only up to 11 pages, so might as well continue for another year.)

Elaine's works are among my favorites in the Realms. Like many, I was introduced to the Realms via Drizzt. I loved them at first, but then I branched out, and realized the Drizzt books were not great for lore (except maybe helping to develop Menzoberrazan). I have become pretty disenchanted with them.

The Cormyr novels are good, and I think you are thinking of Threat from the Sea by Mel Odom.

Are you thinking of the avariel, the winged elves? Year of the Rogue Dragons trilogy talked about them, and one of the characters I believe was half-avariel.



No, I'm refering to the race that looks like a mix between a person and a Eagle/Parrot. Their arms double as wings.

Don't get me wrong, I still like the Drizzt books (well at least the ones I've read so far), and I still like him as a character but there are moments where I just want someone to smite some sense into him.

I just recently found out that Wulfgar and Cattie-Brie break up, more or less, and that Drizzt ends up getting with her in later books....Honestly, I'm not entirely sure how I feel about that.

Having read a number of books from other authors for the Forgotten Realms setting, Salvatore is now probably my least favorite of them. Mostly because I hate how minialistic he can be about describing characters or fleshing some of the minor ones out. It drives me right up a wall. Even after all these years I'm still not quite sure if the small village of elves that live near Mooshie's groveare Wood elves or Moon Elves.

I bought copies of books 7-10 for Drizzt's saga last month. I need to convert more of my collection to a much more accessible format before I can read them, and honestly there are other books I'm looking forward to reading more so than those ones.

So far, when it comes to Drizzt's books, my favorite characters are Vizra?, Zaknafein, Jarlaxel, Montolio Debrouchee, Fret Rockcrusher,Harkel Harpell, Dudermont, and Dove Falconhand.

I adore Elaine's writing from what little I've read so far. I'm about to jump into reading Brimstone Angels or at least the first book of that series, I'll probably finish reading Daughters of the Drow once I'm done reading the first Brimstone Angels book.

Good to know that was indeed the trilogy I was thinking of. Yeah, I want to read more of that trilogy. Honestly though, reading it makes me wish Wizards would add some races like Fae'ri as a playable race for fifth edition.

Yes, that's the trilogy I was thinking of. I don't know why I keep thinking it's called "Terror" instead of "Threat." Whoops, my bad there.




Hmm..the only thing that comes to mind for me is the kenku (they're crow-like). I don't know of any other bird-like people.




Aarakocra are like that, too, in some editions.

My most recent reads have been Blood & Ice{/I] by Ariana Nash. I finished that in one day. Her Silk & Steel trilogy is amazing (Blood & Ice was the 3rd in the trilogy). She has a spin-off book coming out the end of this year.

Currently, I am reading more than one book (as is my wont): Wayward Son by Rainbow Rowell, The King's Dragon by WM Fawkes, and I started reading [I]Nevernight
by Jay Kristoff.

Eh, I didn't really like Wulfgar and Catti-bire together, and Drizzt and Cat have always had chemistry, so I was glad when they finally acknowledge their feelings and get together lol.

That is one of the things that irks me the most about RAS' books; he seems to disregard most lore. It's like playing in the FR sandbox and then throwing the sand. As much has he had written about elves, he hardly goes into their lore and culture at all (and when he does, it tends to be inaccurate). I don't hate the books, but I have become disenchanted with them.

I loved Brimstone Angels. Very good books.

My most recent reads are Without Remorse, Words of Radiance, and Pride and Prejudice. I should finish that last book today, and then I will read the Epic Failure Trilogy. I've read the first two books, but the third one just came out, so I'm going to read them all in one go. The first book got my attention because of the subtitle on the cover: "Please restart your warship."

Is the last Mithil series the one involving the Fae'ri? If so, I got about 25 percent through it before I had to put it down. Not because I didn't like it but because I had a major glitch with the program I use to convert my files to make them more accessible. From what I remember reading of that book so far, it is indeed pretty good, though I haven't made up my mind on what I think about the main character. I forget his nname but he's the elf who wants to become a High Mage. So far my favorite character from that book is probably the Fae'ri guy with the patcheye.

Yes, Elain's books are pretty good. I've only read half of Daughter of the Drow up to this point and I'm fully aware that I need to go back and finish it at some point but I really like Laerial. I like her far more so than I like Drizzt Do'Urden.

Actually it's kind of weird. I adored Drizzt when I first read both The Dark Elf and Icewind Dale trilogies for the first time back in 2003 when I was a teenager but having finally re-read those earlier books of his again for the first time in years...Well I still like him but not as much as I remember doing so in the past. Weird.

Honestly, I plan on buying copies of all the Forgotten Realms novels ever so slowly. If I'm able to do so, I plan on buying copies of the Cormyr and Terror of the Sea? I don't remember if that' the correct title of the series or not.

Honestly though, I would like to find at least one book that features certain races such as Triton or Arranachar? Bird-People I mean.

Yeah, I adore Tiefling as a race, so I'm totally looking forward to reading Brimstone Angels and seeing what I end up thinking about it.

I only recently started reading Forgotten Realms novels again after being forced away from all the awesome series for years now due to gradual lack of vision. Thank Brighid for accessible EBook apps!

I recently re-read the first six books about Drizzt and I just bought copies of the next four in the series. I'll probably start reading them soon! I can't wait!

I recently finished reading The House of Serpents trilogy, which actually turned out to be one of my favorite series as far as Forgotten Realms novels are concerned. I love Psionics and Yuan-Ti, so it was everything I had hoped for and more.

I'm currently about to start reading both the Black Water on Moonshae trilogy, as well as the Brimstone Angels series. Hopefully they both turn out to be great reads!

Kind of on a Star Wars kick right now... After Thrawn: Treason, I read one called Alphabet Squadron.

It's got a not-uncommon premise: take a group of people who don't know each other, put them together, give them a common goal, and then sit back and watch.

There was an A-wing pilot, a B-wing pilot, a U-wing pilot, an X-wing pilot, and a Y-wing pilot. Hence, the name.

The author did avoid a couple of tropes: it wasn't the inspirational leader that pulled the group together, and they didn't mesh to become some sort of amazing team, either. They did eventually mesh, but it wasn't because of -- in fact, it was almost in spite of -- their leader, the X-wing pilot who was a former TIE fighter pilot.

Where the author failed is that only two of the five characters were interesting. The leader was standoffish and aloof the whole time and not really likable, the U-wing pilot was a mystery the entire book, and while the B-wing pilot did get some air time, it was the remaining two that really carried the story.

The author did clearly set up a potential sequel, but I'm hoping that sequel never happens. This author had their chance, it's someone else's turn.

Now I'm reading Last Shot. It's a little confusing, the way it jumps back and forth between pre-Rebellion, post-Solo Han, pre-Solo Lando, and post-Endor both of them, but I am enjoying it more than the previous one.

A minor character that was just introduced is one I hope becomes a main character: A Gungan that cuts off and berates Han as soon as Han says "Meesa." This Gungan talks normally and is entirely unlike Jar Jar.

And there was this part:

"Lando hadn't taken good care of the Falcon's main sitting area. Which was to say, he had taken too-good care of it. The guy was meticulous. When Han had won it fair and square(ish) in that fateful sabacc game a while back, he'd found the entire ship spotless, souped up, sparkling. Who could live in those conditions? Unacceptable. Han had immediately gotten to work scuffing it up, making it a place where a regular person could kick back and enjoy themself, not some maniac's immaculate cape museum."

There are a couple of other great lines about Lando and his cape collection, too. I think Lando must be the author's favorite character, because the author is clearly enjoying getting into Lando's head.

Despite the confusing narrative shifts, I'm enjoying this one.

I got into Shadowrun when it first came out, in the 90's, but IIRC only played once or twice with my gaming group back then. I did like the concept though, high fantasy combined with cyberpunk? Pshhhh....
I think I owned one or two of the BattleTech books as well, but I completely forgot there was a wargame version as well as an RPG version.

I've tried to get into the Star Wars novels some, and I've heard the original Thrawn trilogy by Zahn were some of the best examples of that lineup. I think I've read the first third of the first Thrawn book before moving on. For some reason, I like the movies more than the books...
Wooly Rupert Posted - 30 Jul 2019 : 10:04:35
The Shadowrun book proved better than expected, though there have been better ones.

Next up, one I've been waiting for: Thrawn: Treason. The Thrawn books are among the few Expanded Universe books I read back when it was still a thing, so it was great to see Thrawn become canon again. And I love how Zahn has kept everything about the old, non-canon Thrawn compatible with the new, canon Thrawn.

I enjoyed the Shadowrun RPG but never really played it. The novels I never really cared for. One of the early ones had a scene where some elf assassin was getting raped by a couple troll bodyguards, that was a little too gritty for me.




I discovered BattleTech and Shadowrun both around 1990ish... I didn't play BTech for the first time until like 2000, and my one time playing the Shadowrun RPG was at GenCon in 2015 or '16!

I did play a lot of BattleTech, but only the minis game -- never the RPG side of it. As with Shadowrun, I simply never had the chance.

Currently I'm reading The Expanse series of novels, went through the first few really fast but getting bogged down with Babylon's Ashes. Now I'm sort of flipping back and forth through that and some RPG books (FR and Pathfinder), FR novels (Timeless by RAS), and online fiction.

Just finished a BattleTech eBook, Iron Dawn. Not great, not bad. It's set in 3150, but has the same feel as the original, pre-Jihad stuff, so that was a huge plus. What was a little odd, for me, was the premise of a bunch of planetary nobles sponsoring kids -- even orphans from other worlds -- and sending them to a military academy. And not just that, but regularly having them over for "family dinners" and such. Sure, it's been 100 years since the stuff I'm more familiar with, and certainly, not all worlds will be run the same, but that was still an odd note.

Also odd was a Combine unit deciding to go rogue and make their own little fiefdom, carving it out of the Federated Suns.

Now I'm reading a Shadowrun novel, Shadows Down Under. I really liked the Shadowrun stuff when it first came out, so it's good to see the setting getting some love again.

I've got a couple Star Wars novels on deck, next. I won't have them in hand until Monday, though -- my local post office consistently displays incompetence in delivering the mail, and my Amazon packages almost never get here as quickly as Amazon promises, because they get to the post office and then just sit.

I haven't posted what I am reading here in a while, either. I also make a point of reading everyday, and I tend to go through books. Last year I read a 105 books. I am at 43 so far this year (I have been a little busier, but I do make time to read).

I finally read the Nethril trilogy. I don't know why it took me so long. Tbh, it wasn't what I was expecting. I was expecting to read about Karsus and how he became insane, but it wasn't even really about him, except as a secondary character. In some ways that is good, as it prevented me from getting attached lol, but I felt the overall characters and plot wws... subpar. I don't know, I guess I just expected something different, after all I have heard about Nethril (not to mention the return of Shade Enclave).

Anyway, I also won't detail all the books I have read since my last update, either. Along with fantasy, which is a given for me, I have been reading some really interesting nonfiction books on Japan. Currently, I am reading Engaging in Japanese Philosophy by Thomas P. Kasulis.

Reading Maestro, by R.A. Salvatore. For the non-fantasy category, also reading Lost Illusions, by Honoré de Balzac. Both recommended!
Wooly Rupert Posted - 21 Jul 2019 : 02:10:39
Wow, I've not posted my own readings in this thread in a while... I'm not even going to try to list everything I'd read since my last post here; I read quickly and make a point of incorporating reading time into my day, so the "52 books in a year" challenge isn't so much of a challenge for me.

Most recently, I read V. E. Schwab's Shades of Magic trilogy, which I really, really enjoyed. I then read Zeus is Undead [This One has Zombies!]. I didn't find it quite as good as the previous book, Zeus is Dead, but it was still hilarious.

Next up was one I'd had for a while but kept avoiding: An Absolutely Remarkable Thing. I wound up loving the book.

Right now, I'm working on an old favorite: A Hero Born. A month or two ago, I had some cause to go into the library before doing the usual Pokémon Go Community Day thing (my local library is the best place in the area to do those!), and found a copy of that book in a book sale -- and it was in better shape than my copy that I'd picked up after the fire, so I jumped on it.

Not really sure what I'm going to read next. Been thinking about revising the Finder's Stone and Lost Gods books, but I'm not sure on that one.
VikingLegion Posted - 20 Jul 2019 : 16:42:01
I recently finished Mithras Court by David A. Page. I was a huge Ravenloft fan back in the day, so imagine my surprise when I found out there were 2 novels I didn't already have in my collection! Apparently the book line had been (semi)resurrected by WoTC. But rather than take place in the traditional domains like Barovia, Darkon, Dementlieu, etc. - this set of books pulls characters from our own world into the "Demiplane of Dread." Yes, the ever-present Mists and other such conventions (like the Vistani) are still present. This book is set in Victorian era London, which happens to be one of my favorite real-world ages/locations from an aesthetic and storytelling angle. It focuses on a former British soldier seeking revenge on the serial killer who murdered his wife. He rides the trains every night hoping to come across the killer, who has a distinctive serpent tattoo on his wrist. Eventually he is brought into a pocket realm, a small district of London that was "annexed" into Ravenloft some 30 years ago, cutting off the local populace.

The dialogue and juicy bits of history were exquisitely done, which makes sense being that the author has a history degree. This book is nearly impossible to find at a reasonable price. I ended up tracking down the author and buying a copy directly from him. We chatted a bit about several things, including the original plan for a Ravenloft re-launch of 7 or more novels. WotC ended up cancelling it after just 2 books, and destroying all remaining inventory, making this book, as well as Samantha Henderson's Heaven's Bones, somewhat difficult to acquire.

I enjoyed it quite a bit. It was wonderful to get another Ravenloft story, so many years removed from what I thought was the end of the line. With a little adaptation, the bones of this story could make for a great Twilight Zone episode. It ended up being well worth the effort it took to track down a copy.

Now I'm reading one called Not the Way the Smart Money Bets. It's an ebook, and though I've got a small library of ebooks, I generally forget they exist and reach for dead tree format, instead. But that wasn't an option, with this one... I got it for three reasons: It's pre-Jihad BattleTech (before the Fourth Succession War, even!), it's by Michael Stackpole (my fave BTech author and a fave, in general), and it's about the Kell Hounds, one of my fave military units in BattleTech.

I am, of course, enjoying this one, and it's nice to be reading new BattleTech fiction, as well. I was a huge BattleTech fan right up until they inflicted the Jihad on the setting -- and I hatehateHATE the Jihad so much it pushed me away from the setting. So having my fave BTech author revisit one of my fave units, at a time before the setting was ruined, is a wonderful thing.

I still would love to see Stackpole actually do the story of the Red Corsair, though. It's mentioned so oft in Kell Hounds stuff; it's a shame to not get to read the tale in full.




I will be finishing the third of these books this eve, and I've already decided that I need to read the Warrior trilogy next. Same author, same focus on the Kell Hounds, but it's about 15 years later -- just in time for the Fourth Succession War.

After that, I am likely to continue into the Blood of Kerensky books. It's been a while since I read those... I'm not even sure I own print copies of them, now, because my original copies were destroyed in the fire, and I've only replaced a portion of the BattleTech novelage I once had.

I discovered a lot of those old titles are available as eBooks, though, so I may forego my usual preference for dead tree format and go the ebook route -- a lot of those books were long out of print when I lost them in the fire, and that was a while ago.



I finished the Warrior trilogy and read a book called Uncharted. I was looking forward to that one -- but it just didn't grab me as much as I hoped.

Now I'm reading 14, and will next read the kinda-sorta sequel The Fold. After that, I'm not sure... I recently saw the Amber books in an omnibus volume; I am considering getting that and reading it.
CorellonsDevout Posted - 22 Apr 2019 : 03:48:54
Been reading several books at once, as usual. Just finished Wicked Saints by Emily Duncan. It was awesome. Reminded me of the Grishaverse books. Now I have started The Devouring Gray by Christine Lee Herman.

Also reading The Silvan Chronicles on my Kindle, which I was drawn to because it was about elves. But...it's not very well written, and character development is mediocre. And I am finally reading Brent Weeks' Lightbringer series (on book 2). It's good; I like the concept of using colors. But I liked his Night Angel trilogy better, at least so far.

I just finally finished The Night Parade. Good story, and it gave me a new appreciation for hordlings as well as a new villainous group for my game.

Next up: The Ring of Winter.
