Circe seems very enjoyable for you  ;D
Kallor shrugged. 'I've walked this land when the T'lan Imass were but children. I've commanded armies a hundred thousand strong. I've spread the fire of my wrath across entire continents, and sat alone upon tall thrones. Do you grasp the meaning of this?'

'Yes' said Caladan Brood. 'You never learn'

Is that because you see me as a Goddess.

I was torn. Circe is very good, but I went for Theodora Goss’ take on classic horror characters.
I will expand your TBR pile.

It was because Circe was the only book I've heard about ;D I think it was Bea who read it.

Yes, Circe is the only one I've read from that list, but to be honest I'm not sure if Eclipse will like it...
It's just ok in balance, with a poor first half and a good second half.
At home in the Fantasy Faction forum!

I didn’t think this books were that obscure, I thought a few of you would have read Martha Wells.

They’re not at all obscure, they are fairly new, and quite varied.
