Just finished Oliver Twist. It was awesome. And the wheel of time series, been waiting 15 years for that one. Now I'm trying to trudge through the King James Bible. Honestly, it was easier to read in Latin.

Whoa. I really like that bottom cover for some reason. It's pretty cool.

As for what I'm reading, I just finished A Brief History of Nearly Everything, but I'm still reading Ilona Andrews' Magic Bleeds as it's just not quite as good as the previous book in the series, Magic Strikes. I'm a little disappointed by that because this is the book where Kate and Curran finally get together, but the plot itself - the main mystery in this story - just isn't doing it for me. Hopefully the next book in the series will be better.

Never Burn a Witch- M. R. Sellars
2*out of 5*

Part 2 in the Rowan Grant Detective series, the book is based around Rowan Grant Wiccan detective. The Author relies far too much on ham-handed "magic" and ruins what is otherwise an interesting story of a serial killer who is using the Malleus Maleficarum to execute suspected witches as heretics. The main character is the only person in the world (as far as the author lets on) that is able to perform these feats of greater magic but every witch he meets is psychic to some degree or another able to read each others minds and get impressions from the astral plane.

No explanation for the main characters extra powers is ever attempted and they become the Deus ex machina that propels the entire plot forward. From stigmata to conjuring the main character is able to perform these feats in an otherwise mundane world and no one seems to be more than momentarily surprised at it. If the magic had been handled better (as it is in better series the Anita Blake vampire hunter series is a much better example) the baseline story would have been worthy of a read but with the treatment of magic and the lack of a decent payoff I cannot recommend reading this.
