    The race is on to claim the area between the Ohio River and Tennessee. What's left of the resistance is hiding out in the tangle of central Kentucky hills - leaving the powerful, well-organized Kurian vampires the opportunity to fill the void. Major David Valentine knows there's only one way for them to find help before the Kurians settle in: a desperate dash by hijacked rail, followed by a harrowing river journey. Valentine unites friends old and new in the effort - but the Kurian Order won't easily yield.

    Roshar is a world of stone and storms. Uncanny tempests of incredible power sweep across the rocky terrain so frequently that they have shaped ecology and civilization alike. Animals hide in shells, trees pull in branches, and grass retracts into the soilless ground. Cities are built only where the topography offers shelter. It has been centuries since the fall of the ten consecrated orders known as the Knights Radiant, but their Shardblades and Shardplate remain: mystical swords and suits of armor.

    I haven't been this excited about a first book to a series since Patrick Rothuss's "The Name of the Wind."

    Like "The Name of the Wind" and R.R. Martin's, "A Game of Thrones" it starts a bit slow but firmly sets it's hooks.

    I'm only 1/2 way through and I had to stop and say, if you like any of Brandon's books you need to get this title while it is only 1 credit. I can't take the earbuds out. I shudder to think that this book will end and I will have to wait for the next one to come out.

    Brandon, you have always created really quality tales and I like them all. If anyone asks me, I will say that so far, this promises to be the best of them all! I am in awe of the creative depth of this world and how strongly I care about these characters. Excellent! Bravo! Three Cheers!

    Louisiana, 2065. A lot has changed in the 43rd year of the Kurian Order. Possessed of an unnatural and legendary hunger, the bloodthirsty Reapers have come to Earth to establish a New Order built on the harvesting of enslaved human souls. They rule the planet. They thrive on the scent of fear. And if it is night, as sure as darkness, they will come.

    On this pitiless world, the indomitable spirit of mankind still breathes in Lieutenant David Valentine.

    Overall

    I absolutely love this series! I flew threw every book in this series and hated running dry. Book 9 "March in Country" comes out Dec 7th 2010 and I have marked my calender!

    What if the New World Order were really an ancient Vampiric race of inter-dimensional beings that once again tried to shackle mankind in bondage forever? Well, they should have picked a more timid species to try to dominate and feed off of.

    The Author is brilliant and must be a serious history and geography aficionado. I am hopelessly addicted and long for the next book in the series.

    Thanks Mr. Knight for the excellent story!

  • The Shadow of the Torturer: The Book of the New Sun, Book 1

    The Shadow of the Torturer is the first volume in the four-volume epic, the tale of a young Severian, an apprentice to the Guild of Torturers on the world called Urth, exiled for committing the ultimate sin of his profession - showing mercy towards his victim.

    Gene Wolfe's "The Book of the New Sun" is one of speculative fiction's most-honored series. In a 1998 poll, Locus Magazine rated the series behind only "The Lord of the Rings" and The Hobbit as the greatest fantasy work of all time.

    Darwin8u says: "Original, Difficult and Well-Crafted."
    "Worthy"
    Overall

    I am so glad I have found another author that I can trust to deliver a worthwhile experience. It is really a bad deal to take a gamble on a new writer and feel you 'wasted' your credits.

    When the reviews are skimpy, I run to other review sites to see what others say. It appears that the titles have been changed a bit from the original works. At first, I thought the book left off in a ridiculous place until I realized that I only d/l'ed the first of 2 parts. I have already d/l'ed the 2nd book so there will be no waiting.

    I rarely write reviews but since there are so few, I thought I would say a word or two to others who spend their credits cautiously. This writer is sophisticated and dark. I think of Robin Hobb's strong character development mixed with Robert Jordan's poetic skill. Any would be writers would do well to humble yourself observing this writers mastery.

    If you are looking for something after this, I strongly recommend R.R. Martin's "A Song of Fire and Ice" series. Pretty much, most works pale in comparison to R.R. Martin's.

    I hope this is helpful.
