I regret that there are so many of these that I have yet to read. Really, the only one I have read so far is Ready Player One, but at least I can say with certainty that the book is a highly entertaining one!

Shadowfever by Karen Marie Moning (2 votes)

Best Comic still have too few votes to really tell much at the moment, but that’ll change quickly enough, I don’t doubt. Head on over to the voting post to make your own opinion heard!

  1. Interesting to see the Seventh Throne up there, and even more interesting to see them comment on it in a 'pfft, it's only there because he got his mates to vote for it' way! I sort of can't help hoping now that it gathers momentum, if only just to annoy them ;)
