Jingo by Terry Pratchett

Jingo (Discworld, #21)Jingo by Terry Pratchett
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

City Watch once again.  Fun watching Havelock Vetinari quietly going about his business while letting the idiot aristocracy play war.  Reading about Leonard of Quirm buzzing around randomly inventing was a hoot.

Never trust an island that hasn't always been there.  No telling if it'll still be there tomorrow.  I'm just saying it's good advice.

Guild Wars: Ghosts of Ascalon by Matt Forbeck

Guild Wars: Ghosts of AscalonGuild Wars: Ghosts of Ascalon by Matt Forbeck
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Being an avid player of Guild Wars I couldn't wait to get my hands on this book.  Yes, if you're not a player of this game you're not going to get nearly as much out of it.  I think it's a great adventure read for anyone though.

If you are a player, then it is a wonderful taste of things to come.  Every bit of the story hints at what will be in Guild Wars 2.  Character types, background history, and even what monsters wait for us out there are offered up in this text.

Makes me want the game even more!
