Wow, the photo alone has convinced me to read them. He looks like an amazing dad! "The family that slays together, stays together."  ;D

Just got to chapter 13, getting really good!

Didn't predict the events but clocked them very quickly when Zhou was up and wandering around, hungover and unsure what had happened. Very good couple of chapters.

i'm only on chapter 4!  so not doing a good job avoiding this thread.

Get out of this thread dude  8)!

SO I just got to chapter 20 and oh my days! Didn't see all that happening so quickly! Poor Zhou waking up with a terrible hangover only to realise it would be the least of his problems that day.

Felt so sorry for him with the you-know-what- bit didn't expect the city to fall so quickly! I think it was @Jmack who said the cows were possibly a trojan horse, good guess!

Glad to see Hsin has finally got his comeuppance.

Sounds weird but I quite like both characters Haung and Zhou even though they're on opposing sides. I thought the scene which @JustinHenner mentioned of Haung mercy killing the mother was oddly touching? May-be just me  :o

I like how Zhou has suddenly gone bad ass, before he seemed like a bit of a wet drip but now he's stepped up a gear.

I literally have no idea what is going to happen next, it's mental!

Am really enjoying it so far, was quite hard to stop at chapter twenty but didn't want to get too far ahead.

Really really can't wait to read all the entries for this  :o

I know this is really off topic, but... you mentioned you did a creative writing diploma from the OU. I've always wanted to do something like that. Would you say it improved your writing? Did you get a lot out of it?

Really enjoying the book, have got to chapter 13!

What's DRM? Oh dear I'm so behind with the modern world!

But that's terrible if people are stealing ebooks considering most of them are really cheap, no more than 2 pounds!

Just finished chapter 8

Personally I didn't think there was anything wrong with the prologue, thought it was quite a good set up showing the reader that there was going to be magic used in the story  ;D and that sh*t is going to kick off!

Really liked the following speech from Zhou - You must listen between the rain. A change when it comes will step lightly before it kicks like thunder.

I really liked the build up so far it seems everything has ulterior mtovies. I'm starting to question why Zhou's father in law was so keen for Zhou to go is he involved in some murky plot.

Yeah agree with others that so far I like Haung more than Zhou.

I like the commander's plan to allow Hsin and Zhou discover the cattle and for them to figure out that Yaart are in pretty big trouble. I don't think they have any intention of letting Wubei have the cattle. They just want that road built.

Will be interesting to see what happens next, whether the diplomtas get back safely with the signed treaty.

I also agree it's hard to see who the good guys/ bad guys are which I like as I don't like black and white stories.

All in all it's a good start and enjoyed reading it so far

Some very interesting topics this month! I got a chechan mafia boss!

Hahaha this is hilarious!

One more day! Quite excited to see what next month's theme will be :)

Just bought my copy!

Never read anything in this series but have been hearing a lot about it.  :) Might have to give it a go

This is now currently being shown on channel 5. Have watched the first two eps and they're very watchable. Haven't read the books but will probably give them a go if I like the series  :)
