You need to write down the author, or is that a trick to make us google it, hehe?
I've heard about that trilogy, what are the high points? Or actually, maybe answer only after you finish it!
At home in the Fantasy Faction forum!

I'm "She Who Reigns Over Us All In Crimson Cheer", according to Peat!

I think I mentioned so often that I'm reading the trilogy starting with City of Brass at the moment, that it wouldn't have been useful information for anyone anymore. ;)

It's a great story of political intrigue, treason, magic, love, conquest, segregation and doing the right things for the wrong reasons and the wrong things for the right reasons. Highly recommended.

I finished Orconomics by J Zachary Pike. I really liked it. It didn't end up going how I expected, and I'm interested to see where it goes in the next book.

I've started Forerunner: The Second Venture by Andre Norton, mainly just to tidy up a half-finished omnibus. I remember quite liking the first book when I read it several years ago, but this one is not really clicking with me so far. I'm kind of sliding off the writing style. It's pretty short, though, so I'll probably power through.

Finished reading the Daughter of Smoke and Bone trilogy by Laini Taylor and thought it was a pretty damn good YA fantasy series. Now ends my filler reading episodes between Malazan books, and I'm moving onwards to Memories of Ice8)

If you enjoyed that, I highly recommend Laini Taylor's Strange the Dreamer, which is a second-world fantasy (not urban fantasy) with that same lush, brutal, romantic (in all senses) tone.

Oh that sounds good! I've already ordered both books of Strange the Dreamer from my usual store, but unfortunately their book 1 ran out and I only got the 2 book. From what you've said I think I'll just get book 1 from Amazon or somewhere, hahah.  :D Thanks for the rec cupi.
