  1. Finished today including the above mentioned after credit scene and what Brent has on his website. I really liked the book and thought it wrapped up the series very well. Only one Burning question I did not see an answer to.
  2. I like the first trilogy but the second is much better. I’m about to re-read it before reading the last book. Almost done with The Burning White and I think it’s the best in the series so far. I was not super thrilled with the last book but I think as a whole this is going to be a great series.
  3. I’m finishing a re-read almost done with blood mirror right now before I begin. I should have started earlier! My ranking 1-4 is the same as yours except swapping 4 and 1. Looking forward to 5 seems like most people have favorable opinions. After that a Licanius re-read before the last book. Then a reread before Blood of Empire. Lots of good releases!
  4. Oh didn’t know Blood of Empire is coming out in December. I almost like the second trilogy more than the first.
  5. Yeah really looking forward the the last book and how he wraps it all up. Not sure if you've read the first two Licanius Trilogy books but the third and final is coming out in December so lots of good stuff over the next couple months (while we patiently await another cosmere book)
  6. Yep I like Lightbringer and final book is coming out next month so your just in time. I’ve tried his Night Angel series a couple times and can’t get in to it but Lightbtinger is solid and will feel comfortable to a Sanderson fan.
  7. Yes it’s good. It’s one of the series/authors most here recommend when someone ask what else to read after finishing Brandon’s books. It’s also going to be a complete series with the 5th book about to come out shortly.
  8. Ending wasn't horrible and I liked what happened to most of the characters. Again I feel like at least a half a season worth of events took place in one episode but it is what it is. The only thing rubbing me the wrong way is how relatively easy Jon got off with killing Danny. She had just got done pumping up her troops and Grey Worm with her little speech and I have a hard time believing they would not have revenged her death even though it was absolutely necessary. I would have almost rather this had gone down with both dying as morbid as that sounds seems like it would have been more GOT'ish. I did like how it turned out for the rest of the main characters especially Sansa and Arya.
  9. It is clear the show runners are completely clueless without GRRM writing the story for them. This episode was just a hot mess. Everything is rushed. Nothing really matters. Nothing makes any sense. This one episode needed at least a half a season to unfold properly and create tension. So Varys a master spy is just running around shouting from the mountain top to everyone he can find that Danny is unfit to rule? Then Tyrion just says sorry bro you are about to be charcoal. Danny easily wipes out the Iron Fleet, all the scorpions on the wall the entire pointless Golden Company (if only they had their elephants) in a matter of minutes. I still do not understand why she didn't take out the Iron Fleet right after they miraculously killed Rhaegal. It made what already felt like a pointless dragon death even more pointless. I mean I understand they are not exactly pros at surface to air combat but no one thought to have 360 coverage of the sky? The scorpions were made out to be a super weapon all the way up until Danny said nah I'll just blow them all up. I get Danny was destined to go Mad Queen mode but it felt meaningless without the proper amount of build up. Basically it was just a light switch turned on and she was crazy. It has been foreshadowed yes but her character was never properly developed into the Mad Queen in my opinion. She could have just flown to the Red Keep and destroyed it. She didn't need to destroy the entire city and all the citizens. I guess this had to happen for the inevitable Jon vs Danny show down next episode... Cersi and Jamie die holding each other as the basement of the red keep collapses. Just wow.. What happened to the prophecies? Not sure if this could have been done in a more anticlimactic way if they tried.
  10. Man all these spoiler tags are annoying but..
  11. I liked the second episode a lot more than the first. So many deaths are coming.
  12. I thought it was pretty good. Some parts seemed a little rushed. I guess that is to be expected since they have to close up all the plot lines in just 6 episodes. I thought the reveal to Sam about his father and brother should have been in this episode but save Sam's revel to Jon for the next episode. It seemed a little awkward him grieving then talking to Jon. There was already a cliffhanger moment with Jamie and Bran. It is still amazing to me that the show has been on since 2011 and GRRM is still two books behind.
  13. Bela! Oh wait that's not Cosmere.. Amazingly I'd have to say Elhokar as well. I hated the guy until OB then was sad when he died. Vin is a close second but as sad as that was there Secret History kinda softened the blow a bit in an odd way.
  14. I reread all of them a few months ago. I forgot how much I loved them.
