Went and bought the next 3 in the series (10 overall currently) but might try and get into the Jack Reacher series since I've had those books sitting about for a while and they're a bit lighter, plus I don't have as much time lately to get properly into reading with uni work taking up lots of time.
Book 3 is better than 2, IMO. Well maybe. 2+3 are probably the best. 4 is weird but super good, really.
2 had the chain of dogs. Also there are more than the 10 in the main series. You can read Night of Knives after book 4 and return of the crimson guard after book 7.
edit: wait 5 is the one that's..weirdish slightly. You do meet one of the funniest characters ever, though.
