Dagger and the Coin is one of those series I need to catch up on - hoping that having book 3 fresh on the shelf will motivate me.

I just started Magician's End this weekend, and I'm excited to see how it will all end.

There are a ton of books coming out this month that look awesome. And this really does remind me that I've only read the first "Dagger and Coin" book and really do need to at least read the second one soon, now that the third one's so close at hand.
