Okay 8 new books to go on the TBR pile, I've read one guess who's  ;D and @Doctor_Chill put me off one of the novel with his review.

Sorry Jef that you didn't get in the final 10 but you came close!

The deadline of the final round is March 2016, so it will still take some time before the winner is chosen.

You can keep track of the score assigned to each book by the different judges in Mark Lawrence's blog:

I'm, understandably, a wee bit excited about this  :)

Congrats @Saraband, really good news there!
I wish the world was flat like the old days, then I could travel just by folding a map.

Congrats @Saraband! I'll be rooting for you.

Now I've got reading material for a while hehe. And yeah, I wouldn't recommend Greg's book, though you're welcome to try it. I think Ben Galley's book might be my next venture, seeing as I've been waiting for this particular novel for a while (surprised it came out already!).

Wow, congratulations @Saraband! That's fantastic news. We're all keeping our fingers crossed for you. Whatever happens, quite a compliment to get this far.

I'm reading Priest by Matthew Colville, it looks promising

I thought all the novels entered were recent but this is from 2010 and has already got a sequel out Thief

Also another of the Finalist has gone under the name Plague Jack if it wasn't in the final ten I wouldn't go near it with a name like that hehe
