Series Shakedown

/Ahoy there mateys!  Me Series be spiraling out of control! Many of me crew lament and wail about how series never seem to be finished and are hard to keep track of.  That got me to thinking about what series still be languishing in the hold hoping for love and completion.  Now here be the thing, when I started the official tally, I realized that subcategories would be needed due to the sheer volume or me noggin would self-destruct.  The seven (!) categories:

Series that are not finished but I haven’t caught up with all the released books yet (Why?):

Total 11 Series with 17 Published Books Out!

Brandon Sanderson – Mistborn: The Alloy Era

This is the Mistborn series following Wax and Wayne.  I read the first two out of the quartet. I have not read bands of mourning yet even though it came out in 2016.  I think I will wait for #4 to come out before finishing this.

  • Alloy of Law
  • Shadows of Self
  • Bands of Mourning
  • The Lost Metal

Brandon Sanderson – Stormlight Archive

I have not yet read oathbringer for two reasons – 1) it’s so long; and 2) I don’t really remember much of book two even thought book one’s details are fresh.  Me noggin is strange.  I know this will be good.  I know I have to read it before book three comes out.  I need motivation for this!

  • The Way of the Kings
  • Words of Radiance 
  • Oathbringer

Deborah A. Wolf – The Dragon’s Legacy

Though I didn’t love the first book, I really did like enough of it to try the next one in the series.  The author claims that there are at least three books so I will have time to make up me mind about how things turn out.

  • The Dragon’s Legacyreview
  • The Forbidden City
  • The Seared Lands – expected 9/10/19

Josiah Bancroft – The Books of Babel

This is scheduled to be a four book series.  I read the first book and really loved it.  Books two and three are already out.  These are slow reads so I am in no rush.

  • Arm of the Sphinx
  • The Hod King
  • Untitled #4

K.V. Johansen – Gods of the Caravan Road

This is a five books series and books one to four are already out.  I didn’t know this was a series and apparently read book two.  Oops!  I need to start this one over again and then catch up.

  • Son of the Black Swordreview
  • House of Assassins

Michael J. Sullivan – The Legends of the First Empire

I read age of myth and age of swords and really loved them.  This series is completed and is slowly being released by the author.  I haven’t read book three, age of war, and don’t own it yet.  Though I did pre-order book four, age of legend, in a kickstarter.  I will pre-order five and six through the next kickstarters too.
