Final Watch

So i drive down to the Barnes and Noble today, and I look around the fiction section for something to read, and i suddenly remember that it's October! and the final book of the night watch series is supposed to be out, so i go over to the information desk and i ask the lady if they have it in. Only to discover, to my dismay, that the book won't be out until January of 2008, ARG!

The waiting continues....

Wheel of Time

Rand Al'Thor is just a simple farmer from the Two Rivers, a village where nothing eventful happens, aside from the occasional glee-man coming in during their annual festival. Everything changes for him when his home is attacked by Trollocs and he, 3 of his friends, a mysterious woman, and the village wisdom, must flee from the Two Rivers. Thus begins the expansive collection of Wheel of Time books by Robert Jordan.

Yet another set of books that i simply cannot put down, i've read the first few of these books a while back, and i just recently picked them up again. I flew through the first 3 books, and i'm now on the fourth and let me tell you, They're AMAZING the story from the outside doesn't seem to really be anything special, just another sword and magic book. But it is so, so much more than that, it's filled with side stories, wonderful dialogue, richly painted imagery that makes you feel like you're actually there with the characters experiencing their hardships. Overall i can recomend this book to anyone who enjoys a good sword and sorcery book, or anyone who enjoyed lord of the rings. Check it out!

Orphans of Chaos

Oh my gosh, where do i begin?

I love these books (wait...i love all books) the Orphans of Chaos books are filled with so many abstract thoughts and scientific theories it's crazy! The writing is complex and wonderfully helarious, and the characters are so deep and 3 dimensional you'll feel as though you've been friends with the 5 children of the story for your entire life.

The books start off in a british boarding school bordered by unknown territory on all four sides. The 5 students there are prodigious to say the least. But that's not all that they are, they're beings from chaos, rivals to the greek gods and goddesses who bend and twist fate to their will. The children find out about their heritage and set off to escape the bondage that they've been put into, and ultimatly escape the fate that the gods seem to have limitless control over.

The book is bursting with helarious jokes, inuendos and situations that will have you unable to put the book down, and have people looking at you funny for laughing randomly. It also has plenty of action, mystery, and romance to keep every reader happy.

I highly recommend this book to EVERYONE
