My continually talking up the West books continues to bear sporadic fruit. [personal profile] megwrites just read The Broken Crown and has an interesting review here. She's trying to decide whether to continue the series, and welcomes spoilers, particularly re: Kiriel.

Looking back on The Sun Sword, as much as I like Valedan, that series really is all about the female characters and how awesome they are. With some Kallandras angst thrown in for good measure, amirite?

My longer review is here, but the short version is, I thought this was one of the best of all the books so far. 

I also have a spoilery question for those who've read books 5 and 6 )

So I bought Cast in Chaos the week before I moved across the country to grad school in August and I still haven't read more than the sample chapter. Um, yeah.

But other people have been reading!

[personal profile] oyceter recently posted this review of the first two books of The Sun Sword; and [personal profile] boundbooks has almost reached the end of the series.

I have to admit, as much as I liked The Hidden City and City of Night, they didn't quite hit the heights of Hunter's Death or The Sun Sword for me. I have high hopes for House Name, though, and for the books after that…

In comm business, anyone who has graphics skillz and would like to make a less generic layout for the community, please feel free; I'd be happy to show off your talents. (I have no graphics skillz whatsoever.)

And now for some Sagara West reviews around DW: 

[personal profile] wistfuljane recently read The Broken Crown and is partway through The Uncrowned King and has some very interesting thoughts on resonances between West's worldbuilding and the real world, specifically race, gender, culture, and power. (No spoilers beyond TBC, please!)

[personal profile] thistleingrey recently read Cast in Courtlight and has some criticisms of the book as urban fantasy, also quite interesting.
