:lol: f***ing hell, I think dino read it faster than Troll.

:lol: it's weird to have spare time again. To be honest its helped that I've been unemployed job hunting over the last few months.

I'm currently reading The Red Knight (Traitor Son #1) by Miles Cameron.

Anybody read it/the series before?

Finding it a bit confusing at the minute with all of the different perspectives, I'm sure once I get to know who the characters are it'll move up a notch though, as I'm enjoying the plot premise.

Reminded me of how comparatively easy I thought it was for so many Slaughterhouse 9 folk to be stopped

He's just got the copper key and appeared on the scoreboard. Hooked already tbh.
Aye. Just felt I did it at the same time as you and you came out tops every time. Just in a bad mood now after Pixelhax.

Have to get this out now:

Pixel you're either hacking with the demo, or you're too f***ing good to constantly hammer us to the ground with it every time we play. Starts to take the p*ss a bit. I mean, I don't want you to not enjoy the game, but at the same time I'd quite like to enjoy playing it too.

Thank you :thup:

Yeah I agree, a lot of those guys went down far too easily. I kind of justified it in my head by accepting that they didn't have the same horrific upbringing as the original slaughter house nine so didn't quiet have their cunning.

I kinda thought they were used as a literary device in a way, to progress the story, rather than treated with the seriousness they were when there was just 9. Can't remember how they all went down, but wasn't there a pack of like 7 Siberians at one point?!

Yeah I think your idea is closer to the truth. The confrontation with the original slaughter hosue 9 took an entire arc. There's no way the author could have given 200+ members their due :lol:

Yeah, I can't remember what happened to that glut of Siberians.

finished a reread of kingkiller in the hope the doors of stone is released soon, on second reading i think the 3rd book is either going to turn this into an absolute masterpiece or i'm going to so angry i'll probably wander off into the forest looking for felurian and never come back

was tempted to go back and reread fitz and the fool up to date but not sure i could take it
So raise your fists and march around
Dont dare take what you need
I'll jail and bury those committed
And smother the rest in greed
Crawl with me into tomorrow
Or i'll drag you to your grave
I'm deep inside your children
They'll betray you in my name

Sleep now in the fire

I'm now onto the second in the Red Knight series, really enjoyed the first and this one is continuing where it left off.
