Re: What are you currently reading? Just finished Prince of Thorns (Thank you Mark) and about to start The Copper Promise and it feels very strange that I get to share that with both authors in this thread.

Re: Do you read like a writer? I was just thinking along these lines with a post I did about 3rd person limited POV. I do find myself reading with an eye for learning. @sennydreadful is a wonderful "teacher" and Steven Erikson is fascinating for this. My whole experience on F-F has me reading more critically. Everybody seems to love Traitor's Blademand I had a good time reading it; but after reading F-F, I started to be more aware of how the both seems t think about women.

So, yes, read like a writer, and learn!

Re: What are you currently reading?
Please include a goat, even if it's not iron, we need a true-origin-secret to pass to our heirs ;)

Yessssss, it will be a special secret goat reference just for Fantasy Faction ;)
I really like the idea that we get our own secret goat in a book.

Do we get to name it? Because I wouldn't trust us. It'll probably end up with the name Mathias.

Re: Best Recently Released Book
Malta's character development is some of the best I've ever seen... I started off wanting to throttle her but by book 3 I was her biggest fan.

Also, Kennit. Good lord, what a character.

This, 100%. Throttle her, slap her, shout at her... and then by the 3rd book I was really fighting for her :D
And I strangely liked Kennit and wouldn't really call him a villain - so much so that I was really shocked when he finally did a despicable act >:(

Gosh yes. Kennit has to be one of the most complex characters I've encountered. He was an utter, utter git through much of it and yet I looked forward to all of his chapters and found him fascinating. There was something there, a vulnerability, and then of course he did something truly unforgivable. There are no easy answers with Kennit, and that's why I think it is a truly extraordinary piece of writing (particularly in being an examination of the far-reaching consequences of abuse).

Those books were soooo good.

Kennit is amazing! And a great example of why I love getting the 'bad guy's POV, because rarely are things as straightforward as they appear when you get just one side of the story.

Re: March Reads - Come share your list and thoughts for this months books. My two:

Dreamer's Pool by Juliet Marrillier, as part of the book club.
I liked this, and it had a good payoff after some slow reading in the muddy middle. Blackthorn and Grim are interesting, enjoyable POV characters. Unfortunately, most of the POV time was spent with a third, much less interesting character with a less interesting prose style. But I'm looking forward to reading the next in the series.

Copper Promise by Jen Williams @sennydreadful.
I've sung the praises for this marvelously fun read, and even composed a poem   8)
Buy it. Read it.

Gentleman and Bastard at 750 posts... it's a lifestyle choice Not much to say except it's good to be a Bastard.
Lies is a favorite book, and even though I'm enjoying learning about Bridgebuilders quite a bit, I'd pay good money to be cozened by Lamora and Co. again.

So, anyway, my post count is north of 5 per day. (You poor people.)
I'm trailing @Raptori in likes, which is probably the proper order of things. Though if we took a poll, I think @ScarletBea might be my candidate for most liked member.
I'll be posting for my 6th writing contest in a row in the next few days.

I'm having a great time, and am so glad I found F-F and all you wonderful nut-cases people.

Next stop: Khaleesi! (Oh my stars and garters.)
