btw I can't remember all that much about Fire Sea, I didn't like it particularly, but only those subterranen undead come to mind

I like it because it's starting to reveal some answers and history fo the Sartan and Partyns. I really am most looking forward to "Into the Labrynth" .. I'm dying to read stories about that. They should write a "Chronicals of Haplo." Also, what I like about this book is that there's no real 'bad guy'. I'm almost looking forward to.. well, I won't ruin it for anyone. ;)

I read "Nachrichten aus Mittelerde".

It's a great book, but you have to read "Lord of the Rings" and "The Silmarillion" first to understand the coherences.

Tolkien was a real genius! :)

Got finished with Brotherhood Of The Wolf by David Farland.

Now I am reading Twenty Years After by Alexandre Dumas. It is the second book in the Musketeers series.

I am looking for The Lair of Bones by David Farland to complete the Rune Lords series. It's been pretty good so far.

No, of course not. Everyone that have read the Silm knows exactly what kind of things you are feeling during the reading (positive things of course). It is impossible to describe them with words.

I am reading "Sea of Fire" by WEIS & HICKMAN , from "the Door Of Death Series" (I hope the original name for it is the same with I wrote because I am reading the translated version of it in Turkish.)



If any of you have read that book or that series,can you please help me produce a model of the 4 worlds made by the Sartans in my mind. I have a problem with what it looks like. :oops:

Forgive me if I passed unnoticing any mails about this.

I tried to make a drawing, but it really strained my nerves. So here's a description (straight from 'The Hands of Chaos'):

Pryan to the North, Abarrach to the East, Arianus to the South and Chelestra to the West. The Nexus in the middle, with the Labyrinth around it.

It's a close translation, but it's called 'Death Gate Cycle' in english, and in book 5, as Rune mentioned, there's actually a map, which i have scanned in for you to look at here... (ahh, boredom at work.)
