You are so welcome! I'm just sorry it took me so long to log on and accept it! The perils of deadlines. :-)

Sandra Hi, Thanks for the friendship - looking forward to comparing reads"


Beth  (Curling Up With A Good Book) I am about to start Grave Mercy and read Dark Triumph right behind it! I have heard SO many amazing things!! I absolutely cant wait!!!!!


Amanda I just finished Grave Mercy yesterday, and it was so amazing! :) I can't wait to read the sequel and see Sybella's side of the story. I was so curious about her in this one. Thanks for writing such an awesome book! Also, have you ever read Poison Study by Maria V. Snyder? In some small ways Grave Mercy reminded me of it.
