Cmdr Shepard's favourite books on the Citadel

I was a much more avid reader in my youth... before the days of PCs and gaming consoles. Now I find myself working in a job filled with long, slow periods of extreme boredom (punctuated by brief spells of intense excitement) which gives me a lot of time to pick up my reading again.

The only thing that I curse is my near-eidetic memory when it comes to books that I have read which can ruin my future enjoyment and re-reading of many of my favourite books (I tend to skip the 'slow, boring bits'). As a result I find myself mentally forcing myself to read each page slowly and carefully whenever I re-read a book to prevent myself from jumping forward to the more exciting parts that I remember.

Chronicles of the Cursed Sword, Volume 2 - Yuy Beop-Ryong, Hui-Jin Park In the 'Era of the Warring States', Emperor Moosunje has gotten his hands on a powerful sword, known as the PaChun. The PaChun absorbs the blood of humans and gives its wielder amazing power rival only to the power of its counterpart - the PaSa, which gains its power from absorbing the souls of demons....

Having defeated the assassins sent after Jaryoon, King of Hahyun, Rey Yan and his sister Syao Lin, join the pacifist king on his journey to his capital. However their journey takes them past a village haunted by a soul-eating demon tree. While safety suggests they take the long way around, Jaryoon's sense of justice and Rey's eagerness to fight (or is it the beguiling call of the cursed PaSa sword?) lead the trio into danger once more...
