I'm the author of The Broken Empire, The Red Queen's War, & Book of the Ancestor trilogies - spare ideas land here.

I know you like to dig into reasoning so here particular experience. I loved the first trilogy but by the time the second trilogy came out I felt I had to read the first again to refamiliarise myself with the world and characters. Then heard road warriors is due soon and want to read that on the back of the first trilogy...so hence my wait. Reading red sister now but sure to buy the second trilogy early next year. As a side, red sister is pretty awesome so far.
You'll get at "I have no time for this shit" GRRM level in no time! Cheers!
And well earned. I loved the PoT-EoT series, but this is probably better even than that.
Red Sister was the best book I read in 2017. Pretty hard to imagine anything will best between now and end of year. AMAZING!
