30 Days of Genre

Day 22 – A sequel which disappointed you

Sharon Shinn’s Dark Moon Defender. I liked the characters and the setting, even thought it seems to be pretty standard pseudo-Middle Ages world, but the character motivations and the plot made no sense. Also, things that the couple had been very worried about during the whole book were resolved in a couple of pages at the end.

Day 23 – Genre novel you haven’t read, but wish you had

I have around 200 books in the to-be-read pile so I don’t really want to list them here. To mention just a few, I’m eager to start On Stranger Tides by Tim Powers and Stealing the Elf King’s Roses by Diane Duane.
