The books I've been reading lately have all been...fine, but I've been missing the ones that keep me reading way past my bleary-eye state or whose characters stay with me long after. Some of these books have interesting plots but so-so writing, and others are written in lively voices but the stories don't hold together convincingly.
So I was thrilled when I started reading The Chaos King by Laura Ruby and found the characters, the writing, and the promise of the story all fabulous. I'm more than half way through and my earlier expectations weren't disappointed.
I'll write more after I finish it.
