Just finished "Slow Horses" by Mick Herron - if you like John LeCarre, you will probably like this. Spy tale, a bit slow to start but really, stick with it and half way through the book it'll really pick up.
I’m onto the fifth book in the series in four weeks, I know Dago really liked it. Really fun.
OK, got to comment on this.
I read both Kings of the Wyld AND Bloody Rose on George's say-so, and honestly - I want my 2 weeks back. They are formulaic and the one "hook" in there (warriors are bands, gig terminology, etc) fails to lift it above the "Meh - another fantasy world book with trolls and swords". The plot doesn't so much twist as mildly undulate, and pretty much every part of both stories was utterly predictable.
It's not helped by having read Perdido St Station recently which is EVERYTHING these books aren't - beautiful writing, awesome plot, well crafted characters - so basically I'm gonna give it a 2/10 and that's because I think I'm being hard on it because China Meville is so awesome.
Lol, he’s the other author taking up my current library allotment. Rail Sea and Kraken are in there. I’ve read a bunch of his stuff and haven’t been disappointed yet.
