Guest Reviewer on Civilian Reader

I have been granted the wonderful opportunity to do a couple of reviews for the esteemed  Civilian Reader.  This is my first stab at guest reviewing and I am excited and more than a little nervous as the Civilian Reader has an outstanding reputation in the blogsphere.  I will be reviewing The Spirit War by Rachael Aaron, The Mongoliad by Neal Stephenson, Erik Bear, and friends, and The Dirty Streets of Heaven by Tad Williams.

Of the three I am most looking forward to The Dirty Streets of Heaven as I am a big Tad Williams fan, but I also can’t turn away from a good thief’s tale either, so I am looking forward to digging into these books.  Has anyone read any of them?  If so, care to offer an opinion?
