So without further ado, check out my favourite reads of 2011!
Final Days managed to bring action, the end of the world and time-travel together in a great novel. His best that I've read and very compelling. Worthy of a read.
The Cormac sequence by Neal AsherI read the first book in this series, Gridlinked, a few years back and tried to read the sequel, The Line of Polity, shortly afterwards. For whatever reason I just couldn't get into it then, but I was determined to do so this year. I read the remaining Cormac books early this year and loved the series, the final book, Line War, being the highlight for me. I'd recommend this to anyone interested in weird and wonderful space opera, Neal manages to cover so much in these books, but above all else the entertainment value is excellent!
Check out all my reviews for this series: Gridlinked, The Line of Polity, Brass Man, Polity Agent, Line War
The Honor Harrington series by David WeberAhh, the Honorverse. What a place! I read the first book, On Basilisk Station, around Easter after hearing David Weber talk at Eastercon, and soon got around to more of the Honor Harrington books. You can find my reviews of the first four books on the blog (On Basilisk Station, The Honor of the Queen, The Short Victorious War, and Field of Dishonor), but I've read through to book nine. Since going on hiatus the Honorverse books have been my pleasure reads, taking prescedence over some other books that I really want to read. They're deep, multi-layered, have great characters, and a huge story. I couldn't ask for more ina series!
