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 3: v. 3 - WOO 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 Three follows Deshwitat's visit to a Buddhist temple in Hong Kong where he seeks to learn Light magic in his quest to defeat his arch-enemy, Kalutika. However he soon learns that the only place to learn the Light magic he seeks is at the Vatican. Upon arrival in Italy, Millenear observes Deshwitat feeding on an innocent and attacks him but is easily beaten. While sleeping during her recovery, Millenear dreams of her time at the Vatican... and her expulsion.

Meanwhile, an emissary of the Vatican seeks out Deshwitat to invite him to a private meeting...
