Continuation of a series that started with Retribution Falls. That was a great book; very much like Firefly.

this was one of the best books I've read in awhile. The Book Thief isn't literature, but the story is fantastic and will stay with you long after you've finished it.

Just finished the first 2 books in Robert V.S. Redick's "Chathrand Voyages" series
-Red Wolf Conspiracy
-The Ruling Sea
Bedroom-"The Blade Itself, Book 1 of The First Law series" by Joe Abercrombie
Upstairs-"Warhammer 40k: The Inquisition War Omnibus" by Ian Watson
Downstairs-"Flight of the Renshai" by Mickey Zucker Reichert
Car/Travel-"House of Chains, Book 4 of the Malazan Book of the Fallen" by Steven Erikson
Here's my Shelfari page, a social site to keep track of and to find new books. Since I read so much, this site has helped me immensely (not trying to spam)

I cannot recommend the Malazan Books of the Fallen series highly enough. The best series I have read in the last 10 years.

I have all the books that are out now...House of Chains has been a tough one to get through, I bought it and started it when it first came out...lol. Took a couple of years off but figured I better finish it as I have all the rest to get to. The first 3 were great.
