I committed myself to reading 4 chunky books this year (chunky being defined as at least 450 pages) by signing up for the Chunkster Challenge, hosted by Dana.
My 4th chunky of the year is A Fortress of Grey Ice by J.V. Jones. Yay, I finished a challenge!
I've read some of Jones's other books - the Book of Words trilogy, and A Cavern of Black Ice - it's good fantasy fiction - a little magic, a few monsters, a medieval feel, plotlines that don't get all tangled up in themselves.
This one's as good as the others I've read, good enough for me to bookmark the 3rd book in this series for when it comes out in paperback.
