Dust staunched the wet and naked heads of the scalped who with the fringe of hair below their wounds and tonsured to the bone now lay like maimed and naked monks in the bloodslaked dust and everywhere the dying groaned and gibbered and horses lay screaming.

I nodded to Verity's serving man, who not only seemed unsurprised to see me, but had added to Verity's request a certain type of spice bread that I had always enjoyed.

No, only read Assassin's Apprentice and now Royal Assassin.  I plan on reading my way through all of her works, eventually.   ;D

Those were my two favourites. The Tawny Man series wasn't bad, but Soldier Son was terrible, especially book 2. I've got the first one or two books of the newer series.. the name eludes me but it's about dragons, so haven't read that one yet.

Anyway, I won't thread hi-jack. The nearest book to me right now is that Complete Mathematics one I quoted a number of posts back.
