In less than two weeks I will be starting my summer vacation. True to form, I have been looking for reading material, and like last year, I found a trilogy I haven’t read before.
This time I could not find a Dragonlance series, so I went with Forgotten Realms and the three Drizzt stories Archmage, Maestro and Hero. I haven’t read all the books preceding this series, and I have already identified a whole bunch of gaps in my knowledge.
That being said, I am sure this will be a good read. Who doesn’t like Drows and demons?
Today is the last day of summer. Normally that would be a reason to be a bit sad, but for some reason I am looking forward to the fall. This summer I have read a lot of books, which has been a good exercise for my smartphone damaged brain.
Only thing is, what to read? I was gaming last night, and despite all the Dragonlance books I read recently,I think I am ready for a few more. I am considering the Taladas trilogy, which is one of my favorites. However, there is also the possibility of diving into some Forgotten Realms. I have read a large chunk of the Drizzt books, but am otherwise blissfully ignorant of the setting.
Over the past couple of years, I have developed a collector’s habit. I try to acquire all the Dragonlance books I never bought back in the day, and so far I have managed to get the Elven Nations, Dwarven Nation, Elven Exiles, Ice Wall trilogy among others.
My next target is the Dhamon saga by Jean Rabe. I have always detested the 5th Age and therefore I have mostly avoided it. However, for some odd reason, I have developed a weird interest 15 years after they stopped publishing the setting. Maybe I am just starved for some Dragonlance books.
I read Dragons of a New Age when it came out, but it was never a book that got me super interested in the 5th Age. However, I a, looking forward to diving a bit more into the Age of mortals and see if maybe I was mistaken when I discarded it.
Amazon is usually my friend during these endeavors, so let’s hope there are some European books stores that have these books.
Update: So, I have been going through Amazon, and so far each book will cost me around £20, which is a bit too much. I am going to my old bookstore tomorrow, so hopefully I can find them there, although I do not have high hopes.
