Auk V replied to impuuuu's topic in BooksI got these books in a pretty cool way. I was hosting a close friend who had come to visit from out of province. On that trip while hiking he took a bad step on a tree root and shattered his ankle bones. Paramedics had to drag him out of the woods and he had to undergo a fairly intense recovery. Plates, screws, physio etc... About a month later I received a package in the mail thanking me for helping him recover and these two books. It took me awhile to finally read them. I was still recovering from fantasy PTSD after hacking through half the Wheel of Time series before giving up on them and fantasy in general. These books were such an unexpected treat. I can only really reiterate what others in this thread have said before me. Suffice to say this was such a magnificent breath of fresh air in a genre that I had almost given up on.
