I’m rereading Shadow’s Edge (Book 2 of the Night Angel trilogy) by Brent Weeks. I don’t know what it is about this series, but I just love it

He's an excellent writer. But, he's a fucking bastard. That 'The Magic and the Healing' book sounds intriguing. I dig stories that bring together science and magic, like music does. At the moment, I'm reading Eyes of the Dragon by Stephen King.

He does do this, but I feel that it gives his characters something special when they are able to work these things and they are stronger after.  Just my opinion though.  I can totally understand why you can't read him @Songmistress.

I was doing something with the toolbar in the Admin CP, that might have messed up the coding.  Sorry about that.

@Songmistress it is the science of veterinary medicine and if I remember right innate healing. It's been several years since I stumbled onto the book. But, it is one of the ones I plan to own.

This is how i feel about Robin Hobb and the Farseer world. I have to space out my rereads because NOTHING good happens to the characters. 

NOTHING.

As far as I've read in this world, there are no happy endings. So I'll look at it and think, "am i really ready for this again?"

 Bone box, it reminds me of Dan Browns books, though i feel Dan Brown is the better writer. Kinda dragging on but the concept is interesting. In short a box is found containing scrolls written by Jesus and an disciple and bones. People try to stop it from coming to light because the contents are controversal. So fights, death, betrayal, an odd self torturing character (just like in dan brown's book lol)

      Though, I was talking to @hirondelleabout this last night, and I think it would be a good idea, but to keep it as simple as possible, and to keep the cost down.
      I also decided to make it a poll so people can vote on it.
