17 February 2012 Update -- Recent & Current Reads/listening
This is one of my favorite passages in this book. It brings tears to my eyes every time I read it. If you've read the Honor Harrington series by David Weber you'll understand. If you haven't ... you really should! Awesome characters and the stories are so gripping and exciting.
This series grabbed me from the very first book, On Basilisk Station. The emotions evoked by the characters and their interaction with Honor are just awesome. She's one of those larger than life characters and how her people respond to her and the situations they find themselves in is so wonderfully emotional that I find myself going back and re-reading this series over and over again. I've re-read these books well over a dozen times. The next book in this series, A Rising Thunder, comes out 6 March 2012.
J. R. Ward's Black Dagger Brotherhood novels are the same way. The characters and the stories are so wonderfully alive. The laughter and the tears come and go throughout the entire series and there's a connection to the people that keeps me coming back over and over again. The next book in this series, Lover Reborn, comes out 27 March 2012 and I am so looking forward to that!
Another series that does that is The Deeds of Paksenarrion by Elizabeth Moon. Awesome books and characters. I can't wait till next week when the 3rd book of the 2nd series is released. Echoes of Betrayal is released on 21 February 2012.
Lynsay Sands Argeneau series is yet another! I can't get enough of these people! The next book, Wanted: Undead or Alive comes out the 27th of March 2012. I look forward to each and every new book with excitement and expectation knowing it will only wet my appetite for even more!
