I’ve read Lackey and Mallory’s first joint series, The Obsidian Trilogy. It was really good. The three competing magical systems were original and added an old-school flair to a new world.
Yes, I know. These are youth novels. So what? They’re really good! I have the first two and they are amazing. The others have yet to find their way to my shelfs. . .
Every once and a while, I love some Erikson. His books are almost always around one thousand pages and each novel is incredibly complicated. Great stuff. Dust of Dreams is probably the ninth or tenth novel in Erikson’s Malazan Book of the Fallen series.
