Cosmic Sadness...

In those quiet times of the dayImage by G a r r y via Flickr

Yesterday night I finished Sergei Lukyanenko's "The Last Watch"...After I finish a book or series that I love, I am usually overwhelmed by a huge sadness. What I am going to do know without my favourite characters, Anton, Svetlana, Olga, Geser, even the infamous Zabulon...I hate when a book ends...I feel it like an almost real break-up, like some very good friends deserted me. We spent together a lot of time. Every night, until late, they told me about themselves, their lives, thoughts, feelings, we had fantastic adventures together, and now they left me!
Of course I have a lot of books waiting to be read. But I have no idea what to read next, what would feel "right" after Lukyanenko. I thought about some other urban fantasy writer, but I don't know who to start with. So meanwhile, until I'll make up my mind, I'm reading Ellen Schreiber's "Dance with a Vampire" (a "Vampire Kisses" novel), young adult literature, sweet and nice...

I went to Wikipedia - one of my favourite places on the net and I found there a comprehensive list with authors that write urban fantasy - my favourite literary genre. So I think I'll just start "digging" for books...

If you have some suggestions for me, I'll be happy to hear them.

Rejoice, rejoice, there shall be book 5 in the series!

Normally I'd point you towards some good fanfic, but really, most of the Dozor fanfic I found was movie canon, so I didn't really like them.

I liked the post. Sorry, I have no suggestions, my own life is an urban fantasy, but it's not yet written down.

Hevel, that is good news indeed!
I don't like fanfic very much, and I am really annoyed, becasue Lukyanenko wrote a lot of books and they are now translated into English or Romanian.

Zorin, now seriously, why don't you write fiction? You are one of the most talented and intelligent guys I now...

I meant: "they are NOT translated..."
Sorry. Tired. Too much sun.Too many kids.
