mkarwin immersed in print

Once, there were hard-covered, leather-finished tomes. I love those...

Still, I am far more omnivorous reader, incl. of paperbacks & ebooks.

Ne vremya dlya drakonov

Не время для драконов - Sergei Lukyanenko, Ник Перумов Though I needed to hunt the meaning of some words in order to understand the story, it still kept me going through the pages. Encompassing a fairly productive universe characteristics, this fantasy story thrives to differ a bit without great results - dragons are here, lands are unpolluted by industrial evolution, the world is kept in a stasis, the magic roams the realms, dwarves are eager to work and break bones of those they do not like, elves as always are gracefully trying to distance themselves from the mere mortal humans and even worse the chubby low-life ;) Again there are powerful "puppet-masters" who control their domains through magic. And who would have suspected this, there is a hero who seems to not want to live a life of a hero but who needs to change and face the powerful opponents and rise to everything that is thrown against him... And you know what? Every hero somehow manages to save his land when compelled ;)
