Books read in February 2010

February definitely quieted down from January.  Just finished 3 books:

  • The Harrowing of Gwynedd — Katherine Kurtz (fantasy)
  • King Kelson’s Bride — Katherine Kurtz (fantasy)  audio
  • First Lord’s Fury — Jim Butcher (fantasy)   audio

So, I finished the Kelson chronology of Deryni books by Katherine Kurtz.  They were good, but my favorites are the Camber time period. 

The Harrowing of Gwynedd always makes me a little sad because there’s a bit of hopelessness.  You can see that the world is heading toward a darker period where the wicked, or charitably perhaps the misguided, begin taking power and begin spinning actions of the past into a new light.  Beginning in the first Camber series and throughout the second, the body count also mounts.

I also finished the Codex Alera series by Jim Butcher, which I did entirely via audio.  I enjoyed the quasi-Roman world-building and the magic system that Butcher created.  I hope that he writes maybe one or two outrigger books or perhaps one or two short stories in this world.  He did leave an opening for another series in the future, but likely set 100-200 years later.  We’ll see.
