I've had a lot of time to read because our daughter had our first grandchild recently and I sat in various hospital waiting rooms for a week and had my Kindle on hand.I plowed through a ton of my backlog.

They are pretty good. Although they're not as well developed as the HP series (so far), she can still write interesting plots and characters, and it's interesting to see her write for an explicitly adult audience. Both books have been hard to put down when the story really gets going, so I'd recommend them if you like her previous work.

And I finished this last night:

Finally began this one, supposedly a masterpiece and heralded by everyone who's read it. 
40 some pages in, and so far this all seems accurateSmile
Regret waiting so long to get to this one.
