The Colour of Magic by Terry Pratchett.
I read that last month in Barcelona and enjoyed it enough to borrow the second one but not enough to finish that one when my holds for Brandon Sanderson and Joe Abercrombie
came in. Will you be continuing on through the remaining forty books?
A week and a half ago I finished the First Law
trilogy by Abercrombie, then read the Red Country
and his entire other series, the Shattered Sea
books, waiting for Best Served Cold
. Now I'm halfway though that one. The First Law
books are the best by far, though they're all enjoyable page-turners. Red Country
feels very western, though I think it doesn't blend fantasy and western as well as Sanderson's second Mistborn trilogy. By the time I got through it I was a bit sick of the "accomplished killer tries to be a better man" trope because it's the default behavior of one of the main characters through all three of the First Law
trilogy. Sure enough, Best Served Cold
has one too. Each book in his other trilogy has at least one such character too - they're starting to all feel like the same book in many ways.
