There’s always some kind of inertia I need to overcome when starting to read a new series of books. This time round I am starting the Drenai series my David Gemmell, and I have read one or two of the books (the waylander trilogy) already, but still, its hard to get into it. To commit myself to a new author, who writes differently to my usual crowd. Whose characters act differently to my old “friends”.
Its a strange feeling. I imagine it is a glimpse of what it would feel like to leave your home to start a new life in a new land. Leaving your family and friends behind, having to learn the customs of the new country, and make new friends too.
