    First, because I listen, my spellings will likely be wrong! Gavin/Dazin and, of course, our oh-so-beloved Kip. And, to Aloren Sedai, maybe the regular audio versions would do as a compromise. Simon Vance is great; I love his voice. The first book was originally narrated by someone else, but they went back and redid it.

    And, now that I think of it, Good Ole Daddy/Granddaddy Guile--so many enigmatic things with him--so many mysteries!
    And, and, I just noticed my "old" friend Enelya--and I have to Sedai you now!!!!!!!

    I started reading Book 1 again to work my way through everything rather than just re-reading the last one.

    Monari! Yay :D I'm happy to see you back, or still around, or something :hug

    I've listened to all four audiobooks now and love love love them. Simon Vance is fantastic. I still really like Teia, and another fave is Cruxer. I feel like the last book is going to be distressing :p

    Yes, thank you. probably both-- a combo of still around and back. I believe I saw pics of you in Brit--Across the Pond-- at an Anni-Ball Event. We've done an Anni and a Ball here -- maybe we'll get to do more and some Across 'Whatever' Another-Fantasy Dimension.....' someday. Thank you so much for responding. For all, if I'm on even once in a month (for now) is good. Distress and Culmination--which will we feel more???/!!! :)

    So so so very excited. Book 5 looks like an absolute monster! :joy The newsletter he just sent out had the first two chapters in it - I haven't read them yet but doubt I'll be able to hold out until October.

    Yes Thad, you've got much good stuff to come. Some great characters yet to be introduced, and some crazy plotting. Brent Weeks is the king of the twists.

    Yes..yes he is. Especially at the end of book one when
    He gets stabbed by that knife and I can only surmise that he loses his abilities

    Never heard of this, my thesis will be finished within 30 hours of this posting, after that I am free 24/7 for a few months, just going to read and be a lazy bum. Going to give this series a shot and catch up on Brandon Sanderson as well.

    The Licanius Trilogy is another one on back burner, that is about all I have though, might be able to do all of it by end of year as I have nothing to do anymore.
