  • Investments (Dread Empire's Fall) on May 20, 2012

    Investments can be enjoyed without reading Dread Empire's Fall, although why anyone would avoid reading one of the best trilogies in recent years is beyond me. I was hoping for Caroline Sula, my favorite character, but I'll settle for Martinez and Severin. Highly recommended, and read the trilogy!
