I'm surprised that King Rat didn't win considering the heated opinions the month before. Nevertheless, I'm down for participating!

Like many others, I have never read Parker so I am in to join as well.

It has been awhile since I have been on FF (man has it GROWN!!), but I am committing myself to stop watching some much TV and wasting time on the internet and get back to my true love of reading! I will be trying to join more read and re-engage myself in FF.

PS: Kindle copy has been procured! Let's get it on!!

It's nominated again, maybe it will win eventually. Glad you can join us though :)

Yep.  I've not read a KJ Parker book yet either, so this should be interesting.  :)

I'm in - I adored Sharps and TFK has been on my TBR list a while, so I have high hopes :)

(IIRC, Felishot wasn't a huge fan of my book either, so it's clearly a taste thing. There are plenty of good books I haven't enjoyed, so it's no biggie as far as I'm concerned.)

Glad to see it all the participation for this one. As soon as I finish my current book, think I am going to start this.  ;D Looking forward to it!

I started this one early and have to say I am impressed so far. Really enjoying it, and also really looking forward to the discussions!  ;D
