Fall of Hyperion was awesome, trying to decide if I should push on with the 3rd and 4th books or take a break and pick up something else in the interim.

Those books are set in the future after Fall of Hyperion correct?

Love, love, love this book. I hope you like it enough to read the rest of Frank Herbert's Dune books. You can go back and read his son's prequels, and his continuation of the original series, but read Frank's books first.

Simmons books are almost always a bit of a slog but generally worht it. The 3rd and 4th books in teh series are a big let down though. I would definitely take a break. Read something with a nice pace to it, and maybe not 700 pages.

I am reading Ball Lightning by Liu. Its really good, about 60% through. A very slow start tho.

Currently listening to Alec Hutson’s The Raveling series.

The first one, “The Red Queen”, was great and the 2nd one, “The Silver Sorceress”, has been just as good so far.

Yeah, these are both great fantasy books, particularly for a brand new author. Eagerly awaiting the third book, hopefully he gets the third out a little faster since he seems to be trying his hand at writing full time.

I just spent 10 mins trying to find this book before realizing the title is "the crimson queen" and just FYI it's free right now on Amazon Kindle Unlimited for anyone who has that. I'm going to start reading tonight.
