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.

Rebirth Volume 5 - Kang-Woo Lee, Lauren Na Part of the new wave of manhwa (Korean manga) the 'Rebirth' series catalogues the story of a 17th century vampire named Deshwitat L. Rudbich, who has been released from 300 years of stasis by his enemy, the evil sorcerer Kalutika Maybus.

Volume Five sees Deshwitat and his companions finally defeat the crazed Bishop Bernard with the help of some unlikely allies. Returning to the Buddhist temple in Hong Kong, Deshwitat reveals that although their trip to the Vatican was technically a failure (in that he failed to learn the power of Light magic), he nonetheless made an important discovery about his own powers...
