Stormlight Archive #01: The Way of Kings by Brandon Sanderson
Stormlight Archive #01: The Way of Kings

davidwmack, January 17, 2011

Brandon sets the stage for "The Stormlight Archive" VERY well with this book. Very well written and paced you get a good feel for all of the different elements of the series. The balance between resolved and unresolved issues is perfect. Very much looking forward to the next one!

Abhorsen Trilogy #02: Lirael: Daughter of the Clayr by Garth Nix
Abhorsen Trilogy #02: Lirael: Daughter of the Clayr

The second book in the Abhorsen trilogy, after Sabriel. This book brings a new character to the story and brings a whole different perspective, of sorts, to the original story line. The magic system in this series continues to be fresh and original and really just fascinating. A great story for anyone that enjoys fantasy. No matter how old or young.

Written for the young adult readers but, I think most adult fantasy readers would enjoy this book. Its the first in a trilogy. The magic system in this book is original and creative and really adds to the story. All around, a VERY fresh, creative and enjoyable read. You'll want to read all three for sure!

Green by Jay Lake
Green

davidwmack, January 14, 2010

I was drawn by the Dan Dos Santos cover. I was not disappointed. The story is every bit as good as the cover. The insights into Green (a girl), the main character, are so good that its hard to believe that it was written by a guy. A book "rich" with a great story, characters and plot. A very enjoyable read!

The Girl Who Played with Fire by Stieg Larsson
The Girl Who Played with Fire

davidwmack, January 13, 2010

Hard to believe but, this book is even better than the first one. I was captivated from the first page to the last. And I'm one of those ADD people. Brillianty written and one that will appeal to many different readers. So good that I'd like to fly to Sweden just to put flowers on Stieg Larssons grave to say "thank you".
