I read the first two book in the otherworld series, alas didn't hold my interest, unlike his Fantasy trilogy (can't remember exact title).
What is the new book about? Is it sci-fi or fantays? I prefer fantasy books myself.
You are not your magic weapon and armor. You are not your spell buffs. You are not how much gold you have, or how many times you've been raised from the dead. When a Big Bad Demon snaps your sword in two, you do not cry because that was your holy avenger. You leap onto its back, climb up to its head, and punch it in the eye, then get a new damn sword off of the next humanoid you headbutt to death.
