Rage of a Demon King

Share

I’ve been reading this book for ages, but finished it last night. It feels a bit trivial to be writing this now, but I tend to read more when I am stressed, and I finished this while waiting for the kids to go to bed last night, so I may as well quickly write it up.

This book is the Kingdom war promised in Shadow of a Dark Queen and Rise of a Merchant Prince. I was a lot more comfortable with this book, because its mostly not about Roo wanting to shag every woman on the planet. In fact, a lot of people get their comeuppance, which is nice. However, heaps of people who don’t deserve it also die. Its almost like a A Hymn Before Battle or Legion of the Damned, which are both books which stick in my mind as being ones where most everyone dies. Overall a good book, which a good ending which I think is a little rare for large scale combat novels.

It seems stickers are a gas

It seems that stickers are a gas — they expand to occupy available space. We thought we’d ordered heaps of extra stickers to promote LCA 2013, but now we find ourselves running low. That’s not a huge problem, but I do wonder if they are getting used or are just in the bottom of people’s sock drawers. So here’s the plan — if you’ve got a LCA 2013 sticker and have stuck it somewhere, why not tweet a picture of it with the #lca2013 hashtag? If you don’t use twitter, blog it or whatever and let us know at contact@lca2013.linux.org.au. The best picture will get a prize. I don’t know what yet, because I just totally made this up. Perhaps a t-shirt. Perhaps a pet goat.
