it was amazing
bookshelves: 2_kindle_own, 2012, 2012_5-stars, fantasy_adventure_worldbuilding, different-and-strange, fantasy_myths
Read from November 15, 2011 to August 19, 2012

Perfect except for the partical ending. Not a cliffhanger but an ending that desperately needs an epilogue. My only crique.

20.0% "It's usuall not a good sign when I read novellas between chapters. This one has a great feel but I am not in the mood for my brain to work this hard. I am shelving for now and reading something that doesn't require such a high level of attention."

jD That's a good endorsement. I brought it and hope to get to it before the New Year.

Jesslyn Let me know. I'm excited to start the Exiled Son tonite.

jD Make sure you are ready for some major heartache. The second and final book is alreay on Amazon. You will need to grab it if you haven't already. I would be very surprised if you don't like it.

By the way, Riddler's Gift has already snagged me. I am on the way to NYC by car from Wash DC and brought a portable light for my Kindle. My hubby is not going to be happy with his shotgun passenger. LoL

Jesslyn Who would have thought that I would start 2012 with some excellent independent books? Awesome

jD My plan for 2012 is to find as many of these independent works possible, especially fantasy. I am trying to read only completed series. 2011 was overrun with cliffhangers on everything. I am going to be on the lookout for those. I am even up'ing my ebook budget from $4 to $6 if the reviews are good.

 Danielle The Book Huntress (Back to the Books) I love reading the indies. There are some real gems out there just waiting to be discovered.

Jesslyn I am just getting to this one (its a free Kindle lending library title) and I will trust you both. Here goes!

jD I hit up the author about the ending and it made sense. I am working on a comprehensive review.
