    Shandril's Saga vol 2: Crown of Fire. After that I'll re-read some books, go for the Legend of Huma somewhere on the way and then return to LoTR for another read-through.

    Hmmm... I think I need something light and fluffy! Maybe it's time to re-read "The Pig Plantagenet" and "Castle Crespin," both by Allen Andrews. I'm eagerly awaiting the paperback release of volume 4 of Harry Turtledove's "Darkness" series.

    Yeah, I'm not gonna try any of the spells or anything...even if they worked I'm not positive I want a nice conversation with Lilith or Satan. Plus they're a lot of work.

    Actually reading the book accomplishes two things: helps me with my Latin (half the book is a copy of the original manuscript), and satisfies my curiousity on the usage of magic in history. Apparently most necromancers were part of the clergy: that's what you get for having such a large clerical body with many of them doing little (this was the era of younger sons of the nobility becoming priests, the Church was huge).

    EDIT: Nevermind. It turns out I can summon a zombie lord to do my homework and Lilith is great cook and can play raquetball with the best of them. I'd like to recommend demon trafficking to all the kiddies out there. :thumb:
