Nicely written as usual. I must say, the heiress Fanny and her eventual husband reminded me too much of Scarlett O'Hara and Rhett Butler, but in this case I just could not like them. And the ending seemed predictable: Morland place would stay with Morlands.
#2 The Best Science Fiction and Fantasy of the Year, Volume Eight.
A nice Anthology of short stories. My favorite was "Cherry Blossoms and the River of Souls" by Richard Parks.
#3 Priscilla Royal: "A Killing Season: A Medieval Mystery #8"
I found this one rather predictable, but still a nice read.
#4 Priscilla Royal: "Sanctity of Hate: A Medieval Mystery #9"
I've enjoyed this one more than the previous one, and am looking forward to the new installments.
#5 Max Frei: "The Stranger (The Labyrinths of Echo, Book 1)"
I still cannot understand the popularity of this book (at least in Russia). It is a pleasant enough light reading, but I fail to see the philosophical depth others see. Unlikely to go on with this series.
#6 Patrick Rothfuss: The Name of the Wind.
A nice fantasy along the lines of a traditional quest/wizard's apprentice story. A bit slow to start, getting better as it progressed, but ultimately nothing new to me.
