  1. Ah. So not all of the Shards were originally even human. That's interesting...
  2. Sho Del? I'm guessing that's from an unpublished work... I'm not familiar with those, sadly. Haven't been able to find them.
  3. I made the mistake of reading it right before Thanksgiving lunch/dinner... So my eyes were all red and puffy.
  4. Third book meaning Nyphron Rising, or Heir of Novron? XD (Curse those republications for screwing with book numbers) Both are acceptable answers. Nyphron Rising is probably the slowest of the Revelations books, and Heir of Novron (which contains Wintertide and Percepliquis) is the most painful due to character deaths, kinda like Hero of Ages was. To be fair, I slammed Oathbringer down on the table and took a 7 hour cry break after reading the end of part 3...
  5. I just finished Throne of Glass yesterday and can honestly say I hated it, sorry. ^^' Celaena was such a brat and the rest of the characters weren't any better. There was an almost literal Deus Ex Machina at the end, and Maas kept referencing things and characters like they were supposed to make sense without giving any sort of background or explanation as to why. I kept expecting a BadA assassin like Vin and got stuck with Charlotte La Bouff from Princess and the Frog instead. I finished Oathbringer in a week. It took me four months to slog my way through Throne of Glass. It's definitely not one I'd recommend... Anyway! Some of my top books are: *Kingkiller Chronicles: Pat Rothfuss *Riyria Revelations and Riyria Chronicles: Michael J. Sullivan Study series (Poison Study, Magic Study, Fire Study): Maria V. Snyder Sword of Truth series: Terry Goodkind (YA) The Shattered Realms series: Cinda Williams Chima (YA) Tortall books: Song of the Lioness Quartet, The Immortals Quartet, Protector of the Small Quartet, etc - Tamora Pierce (YA) The Great Tree of Avalon trilogy: T.A. Barron Those are some of my favorite series that I've reread several times each. (*All-time favs next to Cosmere books!)
  6. My two favorite series. Need I say more? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Riyria Revelations and Mistborn. Wish I could add a SA reference in there somewhere, but then it would be getting long... I also go by BrinnaSilvio on some other websites, and she's an OC from my (unfinished) novel.
  7. Here's mine! Q: Has Hoid ever had a love interest? A: Yes! Several! Now I'm curious as to whether they'll all show up in DragonSteel, or if there have been any that are more recent...
  8. Nobody else loves The Blackthorn?! That one was definitely my favorite. Along with Bridge Four, You're In My Spot, Assassin In White, King's Wit, Wandersail, Hearthstone, Stormblessed, and Sylphrena. Honorable mention: Impossible by Two Steps From Hell Yeah it's not part of the album, or by the same artist, but I listened to it on repeat for hours while reading the climax of Oathbringer, because it fits so well!
  9. I thought about using sticky notes, but I have a feeling I'd have so many the books wouldn't be able to close! XD Plus I was worried about them falling out. I've also considered keeping a Cosmere notebook to write ideas in, but I've no idea how to organize it.
  10. I don't highlight my books. I love keeping them pristine and new looking, but I'm thinking of getting spare copies to mark up when I make Connections, develop theories, or see a Worldhopper! Do you highlight/make notes in your Cosmere books? How do you go about it? Do you color code things or write notes? Like red for Ruin, red and gold for Odium, green for Cultivation, white for Preservation, etc? Looking for ideas and advice!
  11. Kingkiller Chronicles: Pat Rothfuss Riyria Revelations and Riyria Chronicles: Michael J. Sullivan Study series (Poison Study, Magic Study, Fire Study): Maria V. Snyder Sword of Truth series: Terry Goodkind (YA) The Shattered Realms series: Cinda Williams Chima (YA) The Beyonders: Brandon Mull (YA) The Great Tree of Avalon trilogy: T.A. Barron Those are some of my favorite series that I've reread several times each.
  12. I believe Arista prefers the term wizardess. Would buy again and have bought again. I have the paperback, e-book, and audiobook of all the Riyria books. Riyria. It's elvish for two. And the duo is absolutely fantastic! Royce and Hadrian are paired together so they can learn from one another. Royce is a former professional assassin that grew up in the slum streets. He places little value on human life and trusts no one. He's cynical and lacks any concept of morality. Right is what's good for him and wrong is what's bad. He's also the absolute king of sass. Hadrian is a former mercenary who can defeat anyone in a one-on-one fight, and even several opponents at once. While he has a bloody history himself, he remains relatively jovial and trusting of those around him. Sometimes a little too much. He's also the prince of sarcasm and a dreamer who always wanted to save the proverbial princess. The two are hired by various individuals for thieving and frame jobs, essentially. Archie wants dirt on Lanaklin, so he hires the pair to steal some love letters, which they're then hired by the writer of the letters to steal them back, and so forth. There's tons of plot twists woven throughout the books, and they're full of laughs, and some heartbreak as well. Sullivan isn't shy about killing characters off. But if you need a pick me up series after finishing Oathbringer, you should definitely check out Theft of Swords. Plus if you order from his website, you have the option to have them signed and personalized.
  13. Oh my gosh, I've never met anyone else that's read them! Yes! Vin vs Royce: sneakiness, assassination, and silent staredowns Ham vs Hadrian: sparring and philosophy
  14. Stick him on Roshar. I wanna see Kvothe vs Jasnah.
  15. I'm one of those who doesn't like her. At all. Sure, she's absolutely brilliant, but she's also a rude snob. I can't stand the way she treats people like they're inferior to her just because they don't know as much. If she were more willing to actually teach instead of criticize, then maybe she'd be likeable. Instead, she acts like she expects everyone to have as much knowledge as she does when they haven't have the opportunities she's had. She's had various forms of learning, schooling, libraries, money, and more at her fingertips since she was a child. Yet for all her research, she still doesn't understand PEOPLE. Shallan spent SIX MONTHS chasing her from country to country, and Jasnah brushes her off. For all her brilliance, she doesn't seem to spot what King T is up to, either. She gets a few redeemable moments in OB, but I doubt she'll ever be a character that I like. I expected her to go through with it in Thaylen City, and was about ready to chuck the book across the room because I was still hurting from Part 3. I'm glad she didn't, and it showed some beginning character growth for her. There were also some other hints about her past during Dalinar's flashbacks that leave me interested in learning more about her, but I definitely wouldn't be disappointed if Brandon offed her.
