Default What are you reading ?

Two hours ago I completed the fourth novel in the Lost Regiment series, Fateful Lightning. This books sees a semi-conclusion to two of the opponents that the humans have been contending with, with some significant loses on both sides. Some humans are still missing in action, and presumed dead by their comrades, but we the reader know that they still live, still hope for redemption. I'll likely start book five later this evening.

I just finished reading Battle Hymn, book five of the Lost Regiment series. This novel takes a different bent, most of the story is focused around a few of the Yankees who were captured some years ago, and are living with the enemy, being forced to help them industrialize the opposition. Not my favourite book of the set, but I do like the characters involved so I tolerate it.

This afternoon during lunch, I polished off Never Sound Retreat, which is book six of the Lost Regiment series. The horde have acquired several advance minds of their own, and those folk quickly rise to the throne of power to elevate their kin as well as improving the current weapons/tactics of their species. The humans are in for a tough couple of campaigns!

And after finishing this book, I'm already twenty pages into the next.

I'm about two thirds through Lisey's Tale by Stephen King, and I think I've found my worst King novel. It's improving now, but not before 100s of pages of cutesy terms, annoying time shifts, and a whole lot of cringe. I went in with high hopes despite knowing its reputation, as I've liked other divisive King novels (like Rose Madder), but I'm siding with the haters this time around.

A few hours ago I knocked off book seven of the Lost Regiment series, A Band of Brothers. Lots of Henry the fifth analogies/parallels in this book, you could say it's fairly replete with them. These latter books are a bit shorter than the earlier ones, and not as good, at least in my opinion, but still well worth reading.

Over the past five days I finished off the Lost Regiment series with books eight and nine, Men of War and Down to the Sea. I'd never read the last book before, I find it curious that the author set up a new protagonist but never followed it up, as Down to the Sea seems to be the final book. The last few books are somewhat disappointing when you compare them to the earlier books in the series, but still well worth reading.

Next up for me will be a long time favourite, the Black Company!

Struggling my way through Alien: Prototype.

It's pretty bad, so far.

Also recently finished Alien Isolation (Audiobook) - and it was even more boring than the busywork quests of the actual game.

Bah.

Another series that I'd given away years ago and never re-bought was the Black Company, by Glen Cook. Over the past three days I completed the first book, and started the second this morning. This series brings back the nostalgia in a great way, one of my all time best memories as far as literature goes.
