Finishing Witch with no name" for a while --> I'm very fine with the end of this series

Finishing Dragon Bones and Dragon Blood yesterday --> spend a wonderful time reading Ward  :)

Starting "Lied des Bluts"/ Blood Song (A Raven's Shadow Novel) von Anthony Ryan --> a new writer for me

Finished Blood Song by Anthony Ryan Saturday night at 3:00 AM. VERY good book! Started on the sequel, Tower Lord. I'm also in the midst of The Rithmast by Brandon Sanderson and Unbinding by Eileen Wilks.
There are many people – happy people, it usually appears – whose thoughts at Christmas always turn to books. The notion of a Christmas tree with no books under it is repugnant and unnatural to them. – Robertson Davies (1997)

I just got Unbinding, I am not up to date on the rest of the series. Can I read it as a stand alone?

Finished "Elfhome" by Wen Spencer.  Somehow it left me unsatisfied.  Possibly because I had read it before, I felt it was all reacting and no sitting down for some councils of war, sharing intelligence, and making some plans to deal with the enemy. Very little acting together. 
I know the tech keeps getting blown up or smashed, or fried by magic, but why don't they have some kind of magical versions beyond the far-writers?  Why don't they set up some tengu, and maybe some of the faster half-oni to be a messenger corps?  They waste so much time looking for each other, it cheeses me off.

That has annoyed me too, but I think a very real lack of trust between all the players keeps them from cooperating that much. Perhaps they will set something up as Tinker gets her infrastucture in place and now that Oilcan and the grandfather is in play who knows what structures and gadgets might happen.

Plus what Jin taught Tommy & how he's taking up on it... we should move to her thread.

I think next I'll go back to the 4 novella collection of Christmas romances.

Valerie - Erbin von Cotton Fields (Valerie - Heiress of Cotton Fields) by Ashley Carrington aka Rainer M. Schröder.
A Bodice Ripper from '87 (playing in 1860 America, you can always get me with a story set in or around the Civil War), so far a surprisingly entertaining read.
