Horseman of Abbadon. (87)

Queen of Thorns by Dave Gross.

Lust, cunning...& revenge!
The susurrus of the wasps.
The elves know their song.

My glowing post about this book at Tor.com should come as no surprise to anyone. I've reviewed his books before & always enjoyed them. I won't wax too poetic here-- if you want a real review, just go read it-- but I wanted to call it out as notable. As I mentioned to someone in the comments over there: don't think of them so much as tie-in novels, but rather as a publishing model in the school of the old pulps that were written on spec. I compared his "buddy adventurers" to Fafhrd & the Gray Mouser & I stand by that.
