September 2013 Reading:

36. Cursor's Fury, by Jim Butcher (442 pages)
Another great book, closing some circles, opening more. Butcher weaves a complex world with even more complex characters. Love it.

37. Captain's Fury, by Jim Butcher (512 pages)
I like being able to view the races Alerans consider animal more in depth, which is something Butcher gives us in this novel. Careful weaving, and revelation.

38. Princep's Fury, by Jim Butcher (627 pages)
More is revealed and enemies shift. I liked learning more about the Icemen. I may be addicted to this series.

39. First Lord's Fury, by Jim Butcher (465 pages)
I wish there were more written in this world. It has grabbed my imagination and kept me riveted. I honestly could not stop reading, kept picking up the next book as soon as I had finished the first. I find myself hoping to follow Tavi and Kitai's journey as he works to build a complex society ready to fight the Vord when they eventually come, and to follow their son. At the same time, I'm content with the conclusion of this series; while it brings up more possibilities, it leaves me satisfied. Bravo, Butcher. I haven't read a series this voraciously in ages!

40. Chimes at Midnight, by Seanan McGuire (346 pages)
Toby somehow manages to get herself into even worse trouble than she normally manages, and if she doesn't learn to depend upon her allies, this time none of them might survive. This book is fairly fast-paced and provides even more insight into the world of the Faerie.

41. The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, by Washington Irving (80 pages)
I've been meaning to read this for ages, and with the new TV series coming out, I thought this was the best time. One thing I like is that the author doesn't really come down on a "side" between Brom Bones and Ichabod Crane. Both have their flaws and their virtues. I also like that there's an air of mystery regarding whether the event happened. The descriptions of people, place, and time period are fantastic as well. Great piece of classic literature.
