I'm not a genre reader. Occasionally I'll stumble on a mystery or science fiction and it will really leave me longing for more, but even though there's shelves and shelves to choose from I usually get frustrated by realizing that what I've just read just stands out. These two books feel like that. I know I'll have to wait for the third book. In the mean time I want to pick up another book of the genre and be carried away. Experience tells me not to bother. These just stand out.
