I have never been disappointed by a Martha Wells.

Nor I.

I loved Element of Fire and Death of The Necromancer, and liked Fall of Il-Rien. I am sorry to say that is all I've read.

Loved it!

This book was recommended to me by a friend that was a very critical reader and had fenced somewhat seriously in college as having very engaging fight scenes. That was true enough but I also really liked Well's take on magic and the Fay, and found Ravenna, Thomas and Kade really engaging, likeable characters.

My game world's were never very original, and the tone and some of the trappings of this book might one day be the basis for the world of Derivania II (Derivania I is more of a Middle Earth rip off, but no one big bad and with less isolationist dwarves).

I was just wishing for some more Martha Wells in the near future, and lo, an older one I haven't read! Thanks!

The first Wells I read was Death of the Necromancer after seeing multiple recs for it on rec.art.sf.written. I'd passed over it because of the gothic cover.

It was easy to find City of Bones but I spent a year or two finding an inexpensive copy of The Element of Fire. I was well-and-truly hooked after that.

There's Blade Singer, co-written with Aaron de Orive. I haven't read it although I have a copy.
