I finished Leviathan Wakes yesterday, and liked it a lot, ending and all. I'm going to read book 2, Caliban's War, pretty soon I think.
Started another Kate Shugak book today, number nine, Hunter's Moon
. These mysteries are pretty short, so I try to space them out so that I don't get up to date on the series too quickly
. Every time I've finished one, I just want to start the next one. I like both the setting (rural Alaska), and the characters.
