When I drive, I read... uhm listen. I like SciFi, Fantasy, some Detective and Espionage novels and Religion. Now and then I will also listen to something else.
Not as impressive as JRR Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit and George RR Martin's Song of Ice and Fire but better than The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flammel and Trudi Canavan's Black Magician's trilogy and other books set in that fantasy world. Worse than Sherlock Holmes, better that James Bond, equal with the Vorkosigan saga.
Trudi Canavan's black Magician trilogy's "The High Lord" as it also concludes as series, includes a "forbidden" love affair and leave the "fantasy universe" in which it plays out completely changed, but I think this book is a bit better.
The veeze Mischief.
Not really, but it was easy enough to follow and at places it drew me in.
I thought the way the game pieces in this game of chess turned on those moving them was an excellent idea.
