I read that last year, and rather liked it.

Finished reading When We Were Gods. Now reading Nefertiti by Michelle Moran.

Just finished and enjoyed Devil's Brood by Sharon Kay Penman. I now have to think of some intelligent questions to ask her at my blog!
Not sure what's next up. Either The Lace Reader or Lords of the Bow.

Enelya, what did you think of The Eight? Personally I wasn't thrilled with it even though I thought I'd love it.
