These coming to you this morning because I stayed up late last night reading and I’m almost regretting it this morning. Not quite, because I finished Game of Kings, but URK. EDIT: So tired I’m forgetting which day it is.
So yes–I liked Game of Kings a lot. The melodrama! The intrigue! The history! Also smooth talking blonds–has Sarah Rees Brennan read this book? Also characters who are more than they seem. Lymond is almost like this really weird mix of Howl and Verity. But I’m not sure if I can keep up the emotional stamina for the rest of the series. We’ll see.
Also read Jill Paton Walsh’s The Green Book which is really short. It’s children’s fiction, so I’m trying to go easy on it, but I had a ton of questions and problems with the background and the world. I think that’s not meant to be the focus here, but the story itself is so slight that I couldn’t help but notice.
