Just finished reading Graceling, by Kristin Cashore. It’s a romantic fantasy and not really my thing. There’s an original premise but it ends up being a backdrop to the main character’s (Katsa) angst about the various men in her life. And I found the end soooo anticlimactic. But that’s just me. Matter of taste, perhaps.
Meanwhile, sticking to my writing schedule with Necromancer’s Betrayal: Book Two of the Flesh & Bone Trilogy. I suspect chapter 14 (out of 15) will be even longer than anticipated.
