Over the last few days, I've finished a few books.

The first was Rex Mundi: Book 5: The Valley at the End of the World. This carries the saga to its climactic moment.

Second was Rex Mundi: Book 6: Gate of God. The final battle and epilogue.

Now this graphic novel saga is basically an alternate history series, with the added bit of magic to really make it differ. It's with reading this that I've come to the realization that I like alternate history books that deal with the effects on well-defined characters of the change in history, not with such books that deal with the effects on the world of similar changes. The effects on characters is much more engaging.

Lastly, I read an ebook of Osprey Campaign #83: Corunna 1809: Sir John Moore's Fighting Retreat, the campaign in the Iberian Peninsula during the Napoleonic Wars. Pretty solid piece of work, for its small size.
