Once Upon a Time IV Challenge Wrap-up!

4 December, 2010

I realised that I never did a wrap-up for Carl’s Once Upon a Time IV Challenge hosted at Stainless Steel Droppings which is a shame as I read some really good books. As it was only for 3 months (starting at the end of March) and I was swamped with books, I put my name down to read only 1 book. However, since fantasy and fairytales are two of my favourite genres, I couldn’t help but read more, right?

I read the following:

Of Bees and Mist by Erick Setiawan
Angelology by Danielle Trussoni
Night of Knives by Ian C. Esslemont
The Warrior-Prophet by R. Scott Bakker

I enjoyed reading all the titles, especially Night of Knives, my introduction to Ian C. Esslemont who finally joins Steven Erikson in their jointly created Malazan world, and the second volume of Bakker’s Prince of Nothing trilogy. Brilliant and extremely well-written fantasy.

    I loved Bees and Mist so much that I recommended it to my book club. Isn’t it great how the mother-in-law was portrayed? I will always think of someone who is manipulative and mean as bringing their bees along with them now.
