I finished Judas Unchained sometime last week. I didn't end up doing all that much reading while away in the bush over the long weekend I took. About halfway through, the action finally picked up and then I was pretty much glued to the page. Although I was still going, "Er, what was the story line in book one...?"
Then I read Lynn Abbey's Siege of Shadows, which I finished at about 2am on Sunday morning and rather enjoyed. I have since discovered that it's the first of a trilogy, of which the last two have not been published. It seems Abbey likes having twins as characters: she had twin sisters in Unicorn and Dragon –
Unicorn and Dragon and Conquest.
Then last night I started Michael Scott Rohan's Run to the Stars, which was his first novel. I first read Rohan in high school or earlier – the first book in the Winter of the World series, The Anvil of Ice. Although I can't remember much about it, it made an impression on me. Last year I borrowed Cloud Castles from Grant, and The Gates of Noon is waiting for me to read as well; these last two are books three and two respectively in another trilogy.
