    Yeah, exchange rates not lining up evenly is the reason to curse the economy :p

    And true. At that price, I'd stop buying (actually, I have pretty much stopped buying - library time).

    Yay! :p

    So, I just got and read Miller's two newest books, a continuation of the Kingmaker, Kingbreaker duology called Fisherman's Children (Prodigal Mage and Reluctant Mage). I was actually pleasantly surprised. I don't care too much for the Kingbreaker books, but these Fisherman's Children ones were quite good, especially the second. However, just as with Kingmaker, the climax was bloody annoying. I wish Miller didn't cram up so much with journey and then do a "final battle" that lasts 2 pages. Also the randomness of it, [hl=black]just using all the Doranen magic left in Elvado to destroy Morg. Why didn't Barl do that in the bloody first place, when she had enough fully-trained and powerful Doranen to populate a country to use as ciphers, whereas Deenie had scattered fragments of 600 year old power?[/hl] But oh well. That's my only criticism in what was a less boring read than Kingmaker, and a hell of a lot less religious than Godspeaker :D
