askerian: Serious Karkat in a red long-sleeved shirt (5x1_poke)
I'm looking for the title and author of a book that was recced to me a while back by someone on my friendslist, through AIM. I thought I'd noted it down, but I can't find it.

It's sci-fi, set during a war? The person who recced it compared it to GW in some way, but with aliens. They linked me to a sample page, and there was a child hiding in an air vent while his (her?) town/village/space station is stormed and his family killed...? Also the book has a sequel or two, though I seem to remember they're not using the same main characters and are more parallelish than sequelish.

... And that's all I remember, and I neeeeeds to find it, precioussss.

Help plz. ;_;


EDIT: Found!! Warchild by Karin Lowachee. Not really GW-like except for the hero, who is like Heero.

... ♥ heero. *___*



IN OTHER NEWS [livejournal.com profile] sarolynne wrote character intros for her cracky fantasy quest story. They are here, and they are hilarious.

It might be interesting to note that the plot of the story came from that snippet of dialogue:

Picture the hero showing up at the wizard's tower to start his quest!

Wizard: *bored sigh* What is it this time? Girl? Castle? Enchantment? Your name is Inigo Montoya, someone killed your father, etc, etc.
StableBoy: Well, actually, you could say it's about a girl. I've always felt like I should be one, you see.
Wizard: ...I like you kid. You surprise me. Sure, I'll help you.


I'm pushing for Saro to write it for NaNoWriMo. It's just too good an idea to pass up. XDD
