I'm a 40something year old reader who likes mostly fantasy fiction, but can wander off into other fields on occasion. I've been a bookworm my whole life, and I tell my kids and anyone else who'll listen that 1, reading is never a waste of time, no matter what you're reading, [this in response to those who tell me I should only read nonfiction], and 2, if you're a reader you're never bored. Book limbo, however, is often a thing for me. I'd got a tun of stuff to read, but don't feel like reading any of it.

Review of 'Night Angel Nemesis' on 'Goodreads'

5 stars

This is an author right at the top of his game. Brent weeks has been a favourite since I read Black Prism, and that isn't changing any time soon. This book was thought provoking, laugh out loud funny at points and had me in tears for a significant part of the last quarter. Fabulous! Can't wait for the sequel, I'm so glad this is part of a planned trilogy! I want more.

I love this series, and each book catches me. Gave this one a 4, though, because it was harder to get into than the others, perhaps because of the change on characters. It took me for a plot twist or two, and ended amazingly.

I'm very much enjoying my reread of this series. I like the main character's character development, and the fact that in the end she wasn't forced to cave to her society's gender and societal strictures.

Darkover Landfall (Paperback, 1978, Arrow Books) 4 stars

Starting a reread of this series in chronological rather than publication order. Actually, I haven't read the series even in publication order, I got what the library had at any given point in time, and that was 30 years ago. So this is a treat, and one long delayed. :) really enjoyed this, after the first 25% which dragged a bit for me. I feel like it sets the stage well for the rest of what's going to happen in the generations to come.
