I am part way through and I promise to post my take on this one.
So far it is very hard sci-fi-ish, but it is getting characters now that are interesting...

Haven't read it, but got a snippet over at the other forum.  As usual, she makes you turn your thinking on it's head.
Oh, and I just read a thread over there where they list where you can read a couple of short stories set in that world!

I got Wolf who Rules several months ago but I never got round to reading it yet- I dont think I can get Endless Blue its in hardback - I think I will wait till I can get it in paperback.

I've just finished reading Tinker and Wolf Who Rules....I loved them....does anyone know if she's got any plans to write anymore books about Tinker?  I looked on her website, but I didn't see anything about what she's working on or other future projects.  I hope she is.

The information on it varies.  What I've heard is that there are a couple of short stories, (see above) but for a couple of reasons she's not planning on going back any time soon.

I've finally read A Brother's Price. As much as I love Spencer, I'm feeling ambivalent towards this book. I may have to keep it around and read it again .... I liked how she upended the gender roles, yet I didn't like that they were so oppressive to begin with. Plus, I thought the romance was too quick. They fell in love waaay too quickly.

Wen has definitely done better than The Brother's Price  But that still leaves room for a darn good book.  It is definitely weak in the relationship building between the rommance subjects and there are aspects of the that I plain don't like.  But it is good speculative fiction.

Exactly - you said it much better! Thanks :)

My 2 cents.

Ok..I love Ukiah Oregon, Tinker and Wolf Who Rules! Who wouldn't want their own Windwolf? And Tinker is just amazing. It might have just been me, but I didn't care for Endless Blue.  I just couldn't get motivated about the characters, so it might have just been me.

Nah, it's whatever floats your boat. Some books by an author grab you, while others by the same person leave you flat.  Asimov mysteries? yes!  Foundation series?  no.  Like that.

I liked Endless Blue myself.  The Misha is going to develop into a cool character, as is Eraphie, I think.  I love the gods and their take on mysticism and faith.  With fiction, we use lies to tell  Truths.

You should use that as a sig line, Jackie!

i absolutely loved tinker and wolf who rules and wish there were more of the books in the works.  i also really liked the ukiah oregon series and wish there were more of those too.   ;D  i want ukiah's brother to meet his moms and his son as well as his partner.  i think it would be very interesting and entertaining to read
