I’m pleased to say I just finished a book I thoroughly enjoyed. If you like epic fantasy along the lines of George R.R. Martin (but with less graphic . . . everything) and Stephen Erikson, might I recommend Acacia? Fantastically written, with great characters and an intriguing plot that goes beyond what’s normally encountered in fantasy today, I really got wrapped up in it and had a great time reading it. Check it out from your local library today.
And yes, I’m still sick.
