Sue's Saturday Suggestions #37

Interesting Books

(Descriptions from Goodreads)

Written in Red by Anne Bishop, review at Fantasy Book Critic

As a cassandra sangue, or blood prophet, Meg Corbyn can see the future when her skin is cut—a gift that feels more like a curse. Meg’s Controller keeps her enslaved so he can have full access to her visions. But when she escapes, the only safe place Meg can hide is at the Lakeside Courtyard—a business district operated by the Others.

Shape-shifter Simon Wolfgard is reluctant to hire the stranger who inquires about the Human Liaison job. First, he senses she’s keeping a secret, and second, she doesn’t smell like human prey. Yet a stronger instinct propels him to give Meg the job. And when he learns the truth about Meg and that she’s wanted by the government, he’ll have to decide if she’s worth the fight between humans and the Others that will surely follow.

Can George Write Fast Enough?

Adam Whitehead has written an excellent post, at The Wertzone, about George R.R. Martin’s ability to keep ahead of the HBO series. As well as providing a possible timeline for how the various series will match the books, he discusses such issues as what HBO will do if they actually overtake George, which is a distinct possibility given how slowly he writes.
