Actually I'd read Dies The Fire years ago. That's the book that really brought home to me how much people want their own skills to be valued. I do recommend that book, but I'm not interested in reading further into the series. My feeling is that if I want to read quasi-medieval epic adventure, we're spoiled for choice. The first book was all about adapting, which made sense to me. I think it would get old quickly though.

Doing a reread of Wen Spencer's Elfhome series, currently in the fourth book, Wood Sprites. I reread Project Elfhome, which is short stories and novellas, first. Wishing Harbinger would show up one of these days. It was due out last year.

And her contract says Disharmony of the Spheres has to be published first.

I grabbed 5 of the 6 "Sparhawk" books at the half-price book store a week ago.  Went looking on Amazon/kindle for a kindle version of book 3.  I'm shocked to discover it's apparently not an ebook.  I'ts offering various dead tree formats, free with an audible 30 day trial, or $22 for the audio version without the membership.
Dang.
