Spoilers: The Covenant is the future version of the Consult and Kellhus is the Reclaimer. Mystery of the haloes solved.

Shut down the forums, we're done.

Just started The Warded Man, by Peter V. Brett, 1st in the Demon Cycle.

I'm only a chapter or two in and its already grabbed by attention. Not only the premise, which(this isnt spoiler) is demons (corelings) comeout at night and hunt humans, which I find very neat the way its handled even early on. But, the pace and prose are just great. Easy reading, like say, Abercrombie. And, after the Riftwar Saga, I need that..

I'd be interested in your opinion of TBP, if you choose that path.

Sufficiently Advanced Magic by Andrew Rowe (20)

Someone on r/fantasy described this as a LitRPG. It was ... pretty interesting. Read a lot like Ready Player One. Fast paced, entertaining, kind of read like playing a video game. Its the first in a series, and there's enough intrigue and cool magic to make me want to read more. It also made me want to boot up an old Final Fantasy game. Altogether a decent book, especially for a first novel that was self published.

I'm going to see if I can read about 2 books a month. Will reevaluate in August.

So put me down for 20.

Welp, guess I'm done with 20. Still plenty left on my to-read list though. I think I'm going to pick up Poppy War by R. F Kuang, or maybe Three Body Problem if I want to switch back to scifi.

As a fellow Christian, I too can very much appreciate this one - originally saw it on a bumper sticker on a car in front of me, but research has it quoted by many, so not sure the original author. Says a lot on many levels, like great efficient code.

I agree and he makes for a nice seasoning on grilling steaks.
