The Dragon Arcana by Pierre Pevel - the third book in his The Cardinal's Blades trilogy.
After that, I'll hopefully have gotten part three of Django Wexler's The Shadow Campaigns - The Price of Valour (with a 'u' in Valour since I ordered the British edition).
So plenty of magic and musketry in my future.

Booktip for any of the Sci-Fi fans here: If you haven't read Elizabeth Bear's Jenny Casey trilogy (Hammered, Scardown, and Worldwired) already - do so.
Lovely mix of near-future SF concepts like nanites, self-aware AI, cybernetics, and global climate change, with more out there stuff like starships, (so far unrevealed) aliens, and more down-to-earth stuff like military-corporate-government symbioses, and gang warfare.
And if you're like me and tend to think in two or more language, it's kinda nice to read about characters who does that too (Jenny Casey is a Quebecqois Mohawk who lives in Hartford, Connecticut at the start of the book).
Migraine is not fun y'all.
This, on the other hand:

How about they explode the Eiffel Tower. A 25-foot Bernard-Henri Lévy that turns into a 1-foot tall Michel Hollebecque, Simone de Beauvoir's bum, and a baguette?
And, of course, in the end they defeat the zombies by making the Statue of Liberty walk all over them. (That's not been done before, right? Right?)
It'd be like a cosy murder mystery, only with zombie philosophers instead of English vicars.
And I'm plumping for François Ozon for director and Jean Reno or Kristen Scott Thomas as the lead.

I understand why they don't, but as a Swede, I can say that I sure wouldn't complain if they did - but hey, at least we get the stuff quicker than the ANZies seem to.
I'd rather say that it's time to stop telling girls and women they can't be the hero (and in all honesty, I also think we're doing much better at that than we did when I was a kid during the 80:s). Telling men and boys to be heroic is not something I have a problem with - as long as we also teach them not to horn in on somebody else's heroic journey, and that sometimes it's okay if you're the one being rescued.
So about equally cohererent, but less gratuitous ass-shots?
