Recently finished Leviathan Wakes. Damn good sci-fi book. Already purchased book 2, Caliban's War, but first I'm going to finish reading The Thousand Orcs: The Hunter's Trilogy book 1 by +R.A. Salvatore
So far its been a fun read too. Usually can't go wrong with any Drizzt book by R.A.Salvatore.
Years ago, I never understood why I kept reading how much people liked Drizzt. To me the original Dragon Lance series was the best (and to be honest, they're still awesome in my opinion) and nothing could touch some of those characters.
Its not normal for me to really care about a character in a book, but when Sturm dies and when Raistlin starts to turn (among other things), it really got me. Its because of those moments, when I actually cared about those characters, that I still consider them to be some of my favorite books.
Back to the whole Drizzt point....
I finally got to read the Legend of Drizzt series a few years ago and I started to understand just what everyone liked about the character. The Drizzt series are the first books, since those Dragon Lance books, to make me care about the characters and what they go through.
