There were a lot of things I liked about this book: the underground society, the mind control, the Link, the ports in the backs of the necks, and the [...]
"A Study in Scarlet" by Arthur Conan Doyle

"A Dance with Dragons" by George R.R. Martin
“A Dance with Dragons” by George R.R. Martin
I really, really, really hate cliffhangers. I also quite enjoy them when I can immediately dive into the next book. So everyone is either dead or dying or [...]
