My new reading buddy. Buffy is 11 weeks old.
Interesting with lots of local color and Navajo background. Surprised at how little Leaphorn appeared in the story.

This was fun. What do retired folks do to entertain themselves. Well, solving murders sounds like a great way to stay active.
Nicely written, lots of humor and just a touch of melancholy.
I listened to the Audio version read, very ably, by Alma Cuervo
What is reality? Something solid and independent of us? Or created by what we believe, and how we think it is? Can we make the world change by merely creating a shared reality that we all agree to live within? And if so, how can that be altered? Can it be?
Terrific read. A strong female protagonist, a complex plot, world-building that was deep and elaborate and well-planned.
Lots of travel for the good detective as he attempts to solve a diamond robbery and murder. Not much in the way of suspense, just a concentration on detecting.
I enjoyed it, especially somebody running around London and getting anywhere he wished to be in a matter of minutes!
Excellent as usual. The City of Dragons is found in ruins. But, will it awake for the dragons? Meanwhile, once they learn of it, the traders will hurry to pull it to pieces to sell off everything. How to stop them...
Hobb is so very good at mixing plot lines and creating such complex characters.
Reading this a bit before January due to library loan uncertainty.
I really enjoyed the atmosphere and the characters, although it was a bit too romance-y for me. Still, very glad I read it.
I soo want Ian to find some sort of happiness. Sigh. He's such a great character.
This was my first Nora Roberts book. It was okay. I thought the plot was a bit stilted and found it a bit too romancy for me. In light of current events, though, reading about a pandemic was interesting. Depressing too.
Such a great series. The mysteries are complex, but it's the characters that are the draw.
I bailed on this one. Just couldn't get into it. And the whaling was horrible.
Characters are always Hobb's strong suite and it is true here as well. Strong second book. Dragons and keepers head up the river to try to find Kelsingra, a mythical city of dragons. Will they find it?
Such a great series. Ian struggling with his demons from the Great War, often hunting men in the same condition. This one takes place in the Fens and has lots of atmosphere and colorful locale and locals as well as the psychological depths these books keep exploring.
