Los días del venado (La saga de los confines, #1)La saga de los Confines by Liliana Bodoc
My rating: 5 of 5 stars award_star_gold_3

I can’t say how much I love this trilogy. I bought all three in a whim, and when I learned the author had previously only made children books, I thought I would be disappointed, but I was not.
I don’t regret my purchase at all. It kept me hooked from beginning of the first book until the very end of the last book.
It’s a sort of quasi-historical cavemen story, if you may, mixed in with lots of fantasy.

They must be read in order. The three books describe in parts the main setting and troubles that arise, an all out war between good and evil, and it’s resolution.

The Emperor’s Soul by Brandon Sanderson

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Fantastic book.
In so few pages you get complex, absolutely likable characters, a strong female MC, a great story, a good glimpse on the political and cultural background, a fully fledged magic system, and the entire in-depth explanation of it too (without boring you out of your mind, interrupting, or distracting from the story).

Fool’s Errand by Robin Hobb

Fool's Errand (Tawny Man, #1)Fool’s Errand by Robin Hobb
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

There are sooooo many things I like about Hobbs books, and this one was no disappointment.
The characters are the same as always,; well, even ‘matured’, if you may, so they show depth that others book not always show. The world is as beautiful and complex as ever, and then of course there’s the politics and court intrigue… even if this one is but a prelude of what is to come.

One of the things I like most of these books, outside of character and world development, is that no matter what book you pick up first, it’s well explained enough and has enough references and tidbits, that you wouldn’t really get lost if you started with the last and worked your way randomly through the trilogies. Sure, you’d be missing out on the typical details of understanding and backstory, but the gist of it is explained so that you know what happened before and aren’t completely lost.

I did find that this first one repeated itself a little where there was no need to. I thought it a bit odd, as I hadn’t found the Farseer trilogy to be so, but it was only in a couple parts and not too noticeable, so it didn’t bother me much.

At any rate, I loved this book and can’t wait to finish the other two.
