"Thief's Gamble" by Juliet E. McKenna
"Abhorson" by Garth Nix finally came out in paperback. I started it yesterday and what a start! After just reading the prologue I was in shock. A good start to the last book in a brilliant trilogy. I'm not far into it but the story basically continues right from where "Lirael" left off unlike the first two books. There was a large time gap between "Sabriel" and "Lirael". I have been looking forward to reading this in a long time so I am just going to enjoy it.
I know that although it is a kids book it is still fantasy. I had promised myself that the next book I would buy would be sci fi. So to make up for it I bought "Stranger in a Strange Land" by Robert E. Heinlein too. I haven't read any of his books before although they have been recommended to me. I plan to read this one next. Also Alastair Reynolds has a new sci fi book out so I am going to read that one at some point this year.
