Oh, it's very different from the rest of the genre. Much more historical fiction (sans the romance element) than sci-fi. Similar in some ways to what Harry Turtledove does with some of his alternate time series (namely the War of the States books, which are pure alt-history, no time travel or aliens involved).

I tried Turtledove a long time ago too, but, again, I wasn't really ready for that. Still stuck in the typical sci-fi/fantasy mindset of typical worlds and plot lines.

Recently, I read The Codex Alera series by Jim Butcher. . . sure it's a little derivative, but I ended up liking it quite a bit. I thought the characters were the shining part. That reminds me, I need to check out his Dresden Files series.

I wish there was some way to link my Amazon.com wishlist to my Amazon.ca wishlist.

Ken, had this one in my cart and then switched to "Mistborn" instead. So far, I'm enjoying it.

I just finished "the Prince of Thorns". Now I'm onto the second book of this series. I couldn't put the first one down. The main character is one of those hero villains you just want to hate, but find yourself liking. Very unique book.

Bump!

I've been reading a lot more of late. From a psychological perspective, I'm reading Passionate Marriage. The sex stories can seem a bit ... weird at first, but the principles seem good so far.

My church has me reading as well: in the couples group, we're starting Grace by Max Lucado. It's dynamite so far. I just joined a men's group that is starting Multiply by Francis Chan. I've heard good things about it also.

I picked up "A Memory of Light" the other day. I can't believe Wheel of Time will finally be complete. Talk about a lifetime of reading.

First I have to finish Neal Peart and Kevin Anderson's "Clockwork Angels." I won't give it rave reviews but it's an interesting read if you are a fan of the Rush album of the same name.

P.S. Don't do like I did and accidentally grab "Clockwork Angel" at the book store. Along with just missing an "s" it also has a steampunk theme so the cover deceived me as well. Obviously I didn't check the author's name. I read it anyways. It's categorized as teen fiction and probably good for that target audience. I understand the series is quiet popular. However, I was more glad than disappointed when I hit the last page.

I'm working my way through WoT again before I read the last book. First half of Winter's Heart is tough going, I can see why people quit the series around there. Still, I keep discovering new things and more hints to stuff in future books.
