I have just finished reading the Warded Man by Peter V. Brett. (Titled The Painted Man in UK). If you have not read this one GO DO SO! I was not that interest and a clerk at a bookstore I love insisted it was one of the best new books out there! I loved it so much I picked up his next two books in the series and already finished them as well! (The Desert Spear and The Daylight War).

I post a lot of what I currently read besides Axlervers books. Most recent would be the 3 series by Larry Correia.

Also the Gray Man series is excellent. Mark Greaney is a solid author.

Insofar as dark, gritty fantasy goes, Joe Abercrombie is excellent. Very good characterizations with loads of action.

If you like adventerous early man stories, I highly recommend William Sarabande First American series. Beyond the Sea of Ice is probably the very best cave man type book - and series - I ever read. And I've tried tons of them. Sarabande beats them all, in my humble opinion.

If you like historical action adventure, the most recent best book I could recommend is Knight of Shadows. Kinda like the Dark Knight meets Robin Hood.

Ah, Sandstorm is a good book. I have read most of that series, but it lost my interest 2 or 3 books ago.

I have been collecting and reading the RCN series by David Drake right now I'm waiting for the next book in this series but sadly it won't be out in paperback for months. I have read all the Hammers Slammers books by him and I loved them all.

Last week I read 33 A.D. by David McAfee, and I really liked it. It's the first book in a series, and I will definitely be picking up the others. It is essentially a vampire story set in Jerusalem during the last days of Christ. I was a little bit afraid that it would be a cheesy "Jesus Christ: Vampire Hunter" kind of thing, but it is actually very solidly written. The author clearly put in a lot of research to fully realize the time and location, and it shows. Well worth picking up.

I also read Tank Bread by Paul Mannering and liked it just fine. Zombies in Australia. Plenty of action, and some really interesting ideas. Again, definitely worth checking out.

Finally, I read Deck Z (basically zombies on the Titanic). Truly, utterly awful. There was the seed of a good idea there, but the action is so poorly executed that it commits the cardinal sin of being boring. Calling the characters two-dimensional is an insult to cardboard cut-outs. Avoid at all costs.
