    For the last two months, I've finally gotten around to reading The Expanse books. I'm just finishing book 6 now and excited to start book 7 because six is where the show ended. That means, pretty darn soon, I'll actually be experiencing the proper end of this story for the first time. Good stuff. :)


      Who can recommend a book... how should i put this...
      lets see...

      Fantasy (obviously)
      Steampunk (the whole deal.. machines, gadgets, victorian era outfits mixed with weird gizmos... tall hats, goggles, vests, corsets, canes & swords.. the whole shebang! )
      Not scared of R rated, as long as it is tasteful and not the point of the story.
      Maybe the story isn't about "the power of love" & "a kiss would raise a dead loved one".
      With well written characters, scenery & dialogs.
      Characters arcs!!!

      Ideally a loooong read. A couple of books at least?

      Here's hoping..


        That's really specific, K, but hey, at least you know what you want!

        How about the Grisha trilogy, starting with Shadow and Bone?

          Anytime! There are few things in this world I like doing more than recommending books to people. :)

        Just finished The Priory of the Orange Tree. Good, good stuff! A full blown epic fantasy in an all-new world, somehow condensed down into one single book. I'm a fan!
