    People have been telling stories about warriors for as long as they have been telling stories... Our contributors make up an all-star lineup of award-winning and bestselling writers, representing a dozen different publishers and as many genres. We asked each of them for the same thing - a story about a warrior. Some chose to write in the genre they’re best known for. Some decided to try something different. You will find warriors of every shape, size, and color here....

    If you like the idea of killing others off, especially the protagonist, this would be the book for you. The male reading leaves a bit to be desired.

    Koom Valley? That was where the trolls ambushed the dwarfs, or the dwarfs ambushed the trolls. It was far away. It was a long time ago. But if he doesn't solve the murder of just one dwarf, Commander Sam Vimes of Ankh-Morpork City Watch is going to see it fought again, right outside his office.

    Love the Sam Vines book and his character development. Once again Disc World is in chaos. Look for the little bits of humour, they are the best, although I wonder if the last laugh isn't on all of us!

    Tiffany Aching, the young witch from The Wee Free Men, A Hat Full of Sky, and Wintersmith is back in a new adventure featuring Discworld characters both familiar to fans (such as Tiffany, the Wee Free Men, Granny Weatherwax and Nanny Ogg) and new (meet Wee Mad Arthur, the Nac Mac Feegle on the City Watch whose only previous appearance was a brief cameo in Feet of Clay, and city witch Mrs Proust - a fabulous Pratchett creation).

    Esther says: "A captivating tale with lots of surprises."

    Yes, perhaps needed for Tiffany's development as a character, but I hope she soon gets a sense of humour. She is soooo serious. Luckily there are other characters who lighten it up a bit. Love the new boyfriend.

    It's hot. It's dry...very dry. There was this thing once called The Wet, which no one believes in. Practically everything that's not poisonous is venomous. But it's the best bloody place in the world, alright?

    Once again full of laughter out loud even on your own. Love Terry Pratchett's sense of humour and realistic view of the world. Make sure your sense of humour is open to the subtle bits. A total delight!

    Miles from anywhere, Darracott Place is presided over by irascible Lord Darracott. The recent drowning of his eldest son has done nothing to improve his temper. For now he must send for the unknown offspring of the uncle whom the family are never permitted to mention. Yet none of that beleaguered family are prepared for the arrival of the weaver’s brat and heir apparent.

    Slightly predicatable, but a good light read. Not Georgette Heyer at her best. Daniel Philpott gives a good performance.

    Once again Georgette Heyer surprised me with her rich characterisation and the diversity of characters developed through the story. Light reading, don't expect anything too in depth, but very enjoyable.

    This story of mistaken love is a romantic fiction set in the English Regency period. It centers on Lord Sheringham who has been rejected by the woman he loves but the woman who has secretly loved him since childhood is waiting.

    What a great collection of characters, developing with their own special traits. A humerous and good read. One of Georgette heyer's best characterisations.

    The development of this plot is quite slow even the ending being a slow climax. The characters are enlivened by the father-in-law. Good book for characterisation

    Jamie Fraser knows from his time-traveling wife Claire that, no matter how unlikely it seems, America will win the Revolutionary War. But that truth offers little solace, since Jamie realizes he might find himself pointing a weapon directly at his own son - a young officer in the British army. And Jamie isn't the only one with a tormented soul - for Claire may know who wins the conflict, but she certainly doesn't know whether or not her beloved Jamie survives.

    How could you leave us for two years in susspense working out what comes next? Please put the sequel out in 2011 and don't leave us for another year. Love the way all the characters are developing and growing into the plot. A great read but don't make the mistake of starting here, start with the first in the series and enjoy the whole story.
