 ;D

Have you read all 6 from Hodder? I've only read 5, not sure why I haven't picked up the last one...
And Miles Cameron I've only read the first - I still remember when I complained to him about the map and how the characters were going in the opposite site of the river to the map, here in the forum, and he apologized :-[

The interesting thing about this list is how different and varied they all are :D

Dreamblood by N. K. Jemisin


I adore both The Inheritance Cycle and the Broken Earth series but Dreamblood just didn't grab me that hard. Inheritance and Broken grabbed me like a lover reunited in the bombed out shell of a war-torn city. Dreamblood was more like one of those chest-bump bro-hugs where you point at each other, wink and go your separate ways.

Tales of the Kin by Douglas Hulick read this!
Was the third ever released? I never came around to read Sworn in Steel, though I have it on my shelves for ages.

I seem to be in the minority and didn't enjoy Tales from the Kitty Jay.

The Gentlemen Bastards are well good though and can't wait to return to that world.
