Glad you caught it now, in that case. :)
Your comments about ASoIaF are interesting. I only read the first book, decided it wasn't really for me, and put it down. But I was recently reading a collection of short stories by George R. R. Martin, and he said something chilling in the intro. To put it briefly, he said that he's had lots of series over the years that he just lost interest in and stopped writing. I thought "man, if you do that with ASoIaF, you're gonna get lynched."
I'm reading Promise of Blood now, and it's pretty good. Magic and guns, including magic based on gunpowder as well as other kinds. Some interesting character bits that I'm hoping the author follows up on in the future, like the character who's trying to convince himself that he's not a gunpowder addict, and the issue of people having to work with someone who betrayed them in the past.
I'm reading it on my Kindle, and noticed that they added a new feature with the latest firmware update. It watches how fast you're reading, and if you bring up the menu while in a book, it tells you how much time it'll take for you to finish the book. Amazing idea for when you're about to go on a trip and aren't sure if your book is long enough to last you.
