Through the letterbox

The postman brought me a present today, which I thought was very nice of him.

  • Emperor of Thorns (Broken Empire #3) - Mark Lawrence
I'm in the process of re-reading the second book in this trilogy (King of Thorns) and Emperor will definitely be the next book I read. This whole series is far better than simply being "on a par with George R R Martin."

  • Beyond the Shadows (Night Angel #3) - Brent Weeks
I read and enjoyed the first two in the Night Angel trilogy a few weeks ago, but got distracted by Rothfuss and Lawrence. I was reminded of these books again earlier this week after noticing The Blinding Knife in Waterstones, and thought I'd better order Beyond the Shadows before starting the Lightbringer series. 

  • The Lions of Al-Rassan - Guy Gavriel Kay
I've never read anything by this author before, and have bought this purely on the strength of a friend's recent recommendation. Looking forward to reading it once I'm done with Emperor and Rothfuss #2 (and, of course, after getting re-acquainted with Scott Lynch in preparation for the upcoming and long-awaited Republic of Thieves).
