About this author

"We're All Stories In the End. Just Make It A Good One."
- The Doctor

Brandi Polier started writing soon after she learned how to read at the age of 4. Once she realized that the amazing stories that she was reading could also be created by stringing her own series of words together, she never stopped creating. In high school, her stories began to coalesce into publish worthy stories until her first complete work, Call of Descent, was brought into existence. After feeling the elation of completion, the sudden realization that her story was complete left her wondering if she had any more stories to tell. It wasn't long before she realized that her mind was teaming with stories and she started working on the sequel to Call of Descent, Spirit Un

Walk On (Select)

Description: I wrote this during a meeting I was at where I saw someone walk by with black high heel shoes on and it gave me this sudden flash of my sister, just weeks before she went crazy and then died, wearing high heel shoes for the first time since she was diagnosed, and I could hear her laughter, clear as day as though she was standing right in front of me. It made me particularly terrified that I would start to forget that laugh and the way she sounded. This poem came to me instantly.
For My Sister (Poetry)

Description: A poem I wrote the day before my sister died.

“I love rain. I love the sound of it falling on an umbrella, each drop that hits the cloth a soothing sound. Everything is so fresh and clean. It always feels as if each drop is helping to wash away the hurt, the pain, the dirt that life leaves behind. As if the mere act of it falling can give life a rebirth, a second chance.”

Brandi So for my goodreads challenge next year I decided on quality not quantity. Instead of 50+ books I am going for 10. Two of those 10 are going to be 1) The Holy Bible which I want to read cover to cover again this time in a year, and 2) The Tale of Genji which is bible sized itself and I have only read to page 800 of the 3000? pages in it. So those are the two books I am going to finish next year. 8 others for fillers when I can't read the other to any more.

I agree. The series definitely gets better as it progresses, but Robin Hobb has a penchant for making her characters suffer miserably. That never changes in any of her books.


message 10: by Laura

Laura So I finally read Royal Assassin. For some strange reason I enjoyed it way more then the first one. I think it may have been because the first one was so depressing, always something bad happening to Fitz. He still got a full share of nastiness in this book, but there was also good things happening to him, not much, but I guess enough.

Too true, it really doesn't.

Brandi Now that I think about it, I didn't know about it either. I didn't know it was there until the second book had hit first printing. I think it is actually called the TAWNY MAN trilogy and not the Golden Fool. Either way, I'm sure you will find it. This all is making me want to read both series over again, it has been such a long time. If only I didn't have 50+ books waiting on my TO BE READ shelf...

Robin Hobb's Assassin series is one of my favorites. Most people find it a little slow, but I just loved it and devoured it. Don't forget to read the Golden Fool Series afterwards as it completes the story and enjoy!


message 4: by Laura

Laura I finished Shadows Edge, I enjoyed it more then the first, but it had more to do with the story elements then anything else. The problems with the first book are still strong in the second, the writing is slightly better, and I didn't find this one as confusing in areas like the first one. If I hadn't received the box set of this series I probably wouldn't have bothered. I'll race through the third hopefully (sometimes it's a bad thing to be a completion-ist) and then start Robin Hobb's Assassin series. :D


Isreal um...sorry for late reply....usually takes a long time....with me...it seems..will try to get better...


Isreal yes it was wonderful...I try to read as much as I can...

Thanks for the reply


Isreal just wanted to say hello...
