I finished the Yamada Monogatari books in about a week, as expect. I just a few minutes ago finished another book called The Chimera Code. It's got a lot of cyberpunk elements, without being the corporate dystopia you usually see in cyberpunk. And it's also got magic. I wasn't really grabbed by the book, initially, but it finished strong enough that I'll look for the next book, when it comes out.

Next I'm going to revisit the Ministry of Peculiar Occurrences books I mentioned at the top of the previous page.

I've got to add it to my list, I love Scooby Doo.

I just finished Death Masks and I loved it. I actually liked it so much I started it over. One of my favorite Realms novels so far.

Plus I love the fact that Lords of Waterdeep board game makes an appearance in the novel.

'There were five men and women seated around the table in this room, with a board between them depicting the city of Waterdeep One of the men was grinning and announcing gleefully, "Time for a mandatory quest, I think!"'

The party come to a town befallen by hysteria

Rogue: So what's in the general store?
DM: What are you looking for?
Rogue: Whatevers in the store.
DM: Like what?
Rogue: Everything.
DM: There is a lot of stuff.
Rogue: Is there a cart outside?
DM: (rolls) Yes.
Rogue: We'll take it all, we may need it for the greater good.

I just finished The Simbul's Gift (Lynn Abbey). I have a lot of apprehension about the involvement of relevant and powerful characters in FR novels. My overall impression is of a Simbul that doesn't justify being so feared (as well as loved by her own). What bothered me most was the character's ingenuity when faced with challenges. The villains, however, were well developed.Thay is one of the most fascinating empires to explore in the Realms. I appreciate Szass Tam, but itīs good to read more novels involving other zulkirs.
