I have been so focused on finishing the fifth volume of the Malazan Book of the Fallen, that I didn’t remember to update my progress.
I am glad to say that I finished yesterday, and to say that this series has an epic scope is not quite making it justice, the book closes on a cliffhanger, as war unravels, so the schemes of the gods.
I have approached this series as I did a challenging steep hike thru the mountains, used to practice hiking with plans of doing it again, one ascend at a time, with the top always on sight, and most importantly knowing my limits.
It is because of this that I’ll take a break from the series to catch my breath.
I’ll go to the Forgotten Realms, and read the adventures of Farideh on Erin M. Evans’ The Adversary, the third chapter of the multi-author series The Sundering.
On my journey to reach 40,000 pages on this year of reading, I am 6,068 pages away and have 44 days to do it.
For now, I am off to read.
