That first chapter was powerful, son!
I'll warn you. Some of the names of characters and cities are pretty brutal to read.
Yeah, Bakker's "Second Apocalypse" is a great remedy to the long wait between Martin's "Ice and Fire" Entries. What I like most about it is that it has the same appeal but yet is totally different in content and tone. I've read through "The Judging Eye" myself.
Right now I'm reading "Where Men Win Glory" by Krakauer, which is about the death of Arizona Cardinals safety Pat Tillman in Afghanistan and the subsequent cover-up.
I'm also re-reading Martin Cruz Smith's Arkady Renko series whnever I get the chance, which I'd recommend to anyone who likes a good suspense novel. Read "Gorky Park" last year and hoping to get to "Polar Star" soon.
