I hope everyone is busy writing, ready to post within the next 11 days ;D

@ScarletBea: Read his short story "Bound" first! It takes place between Grey Sister and Holy Sister and is incredibly good.
Thanks for the tip! Since it's a short story, I might relax my "no ebooks" rule and get it ;D
(lunchtime task)

I've only read Holy Sister's prologue, so I'm still on time, hehe

Funnily enough, yesterday I was looking at it and thinking of doing that, but today I completely forgot, in my rush to restart :-[

Edit: bought and reading it :D

I finished re-reading Lawrence's Red sister yesterday and immediately started Grey sister :D

It did feel a lot better this time, without the weight of expectation/previous trilogies behind it.

Ohmygawd, Grey Sister was fantastic! I finished it last night, after a bit of a marathon reading because I just couldn't put it down. Straight onto Holy Sister :D :D

It almost felt like a mixture between the base of the first Ancestor book (which definitely attracts a whole different kind of readership from the ones who loved the first 2 trilogies) and Mark's other books. It expanded into the world, added a couple more POVs, added politics, stealth and real baddies, while maintaining the amazing friendships, abilities and characters of book 1.

Wow Eli, you put us all (well, me) to shame!

Have fun ;D

According to the Orbit newsletter, the whole Brent Weeks' Lightbringer series is having a deal on ebook.

Even though he turned things a bit awkward in book 4, I still love books 1-3 and can't wait for the last one, later this year :D

THE BLACK PRISM - £1.99
THE BLINDING KNIFE - £2.99
THE BROKEN EYE - £2.99
THE BLOOD MIRROR - £2.99

You've inspired me to give Red Sister a second try, too. Like you, I just came with the Prince of Thorns expectations, and those were some very thorny boots to fill.
@Saraband, you definitely need to do that, and then continue to the other books: Grey Sister moves out "into the world" and it's being amazing :D

The seller at the carpet shop just sent it to me, he had it as the computer background and I admired it!
