I just horribly spoiled myself for Shadowflame. Now I don't want to read Queen of Shadows at all. I'll pass on getting invested only to become enraged later.

Pamela / SpazP eeeeeep! this is kind of a spoiler for those of us who are very invested in QoS and now know something enraging happens in Shadowflame!! :***(


message 2: by Catherine (new)

Catherine Sorry. I didn't think that saying that I was mad about what I learned about Shadowflame counted as a spoiler.

Catherine But my pet peeves might not be your pet peeves. :D I'm just tired of starting a series only to end up frustrated (but unable to let go because I'm invested) after a couple books in. That's all I meant.

Hmmm. Let me PM you.

MJ Thanks, Catherine!

Kelly I read this spoiler too, and unless she handles it reeeeeally well, I am going to be way pissed off at a character...

I was reading the post on DA but didn't even realize what story they were talking about until I started feeling deja vu while reading the character names.


message 10: by Kelly (new)

Kelly I loved QoS...I have a feeling this is going to upset me.


message 11: by Catherine (new)

Catherine :(


message 12: by Jen (new)

Jen I did the same thing! But I am glad I know before I read it and fell so in love with their relationship. I am disappointed and I haven't even read Queen of Shadows yet!

Me too. I was planning to, though. Oh well, it's not like I don't have a ton of other books to read.

Jen I hear you there!

MelissaB I am not happy :(

I don't want to know! I've preordered Shadowflame and I was looking forward to getting it.

You might still enjoy it! You know what bothers me doesn't always bother you. :) I would strongly recommend you not read any recent DA posts, though.


message 19: by MelissaB (new)

MelissaB Yes Catherine, I have a link to it in my status.

I am glad I know because if I hadn't and read that in Shadowflame I would be PISSED!!

Desperado Catherine, do you mean the spoiler posted on DA? If so...yeah, no. I didn't read it but the title of the blog post suggests it has something to do with (view spoiler) Fuck.

Mrs. Badass I can't see the spoilers... I can't see them. (Not looking! Just passing through lol)
This happened to me in another series (Gail Carriger) and I STILL have nor picked up the second novel because I read the pub blurb for the third and is ruined it for me!
I'm also sick of getting invested in characters only to have something yanked away by the author! Bleh!

Me too. :(

I know a lot of people who were spoiled by the blurb in the third book. They were pissed!


message 24: by Rane (new)

Rane This felt like a slap in the face as I loved QOS and David and to find out about this- I'm dropping this series before I become pissed and even more disappointed


Laura the Highland Hussy man! I have QoS sitting in my room....grrr...

I saw your post on MelissaB's status update and I agree with what you said. I had also noticed the comment you mentioned. I still find this news shocking based on the first book's storyline.

message 28: by Kelly (new)

Kelly I still figure I'll read Shadowflame--I'll give it a chance and see if I can deal with it. But ugh.


message 29: by Desperado (last edited Jun 07, 2011 09:16PM) (new)

Desperado FML. I read the spoiler. I wasn't going to but so many people kept saying "Oh noes! The spoiler is so bad! I'm so angry!"...& I gave in. And now I want to kick myself in the head. (view spoiler) Ugh! FML.

The only thing worse would be if Pritkin & Cassie have sex in Hunt the Moon (Cassandra Palmer, #5) by Karen Chance.

I think that's what I"m afraid of-if I like it, then this spoiler will ruin the series for me

Sammy OMG! WTF? I loved QOS and am super pissed! Argh! Why would the author go in this direction???

I know, right? From everything I've heard it seems completely out of left field.


message 33: by Sammy (new)

Sammy She made a mockery out of book one with this whole scenerio. I don't even want to read book two now. It's like she voided out any respect I had for David and their relationship. Unbelievable.

I wouldn't be able to accept it either.

AH Hmmm...You were really mad at Hard Bitten and I saw it as a stroke of genius...Maybe I'll still keep this on the old reading list.

Exactly. Different strokes for different folks. :)


message 38: by AH (new)

AH I was still mad!

I'm not sure how you'll take this event, but I'll be curious to hear your review after you read it.

AH You'll probably see the same kind of status update -

NOOOOOOOOO!!!!!

The author even put on her Facebook that Shadowflame is enraging people, lol. It's okay, Spaz. Her words were along the lines of "everyone makes mistakes in relationships." : ) BREATHE, SPAZ, BREATHE!!! lol


message 45: by Jackie (new)

Jackie Uhrmacher You guys are going to make me go to the DA article, aren't you? I feel like a I lose a piece of my soul everytime I visit that blog...::shivers::...okay, time to find out what you are all talking about!


message 46: by MelissaB (last edited Jun 08, 2011 09:43AM) (new)

MelissaB It's just that a lot of us are drawn to the paranormal soulmate idea because they are supposed to have an unbreakable bond. They wouldn't (view spoiler) if they were deeply in love, so I guess I just feel like she took away my trust in her as a writer and made their bond into something cheap and useless. Of course people have lots of relationship issues in real life but we want our fiction to be a better place - at least I do, I want to believe in the relationships.

Too bad about this, I did like the first book.


message 47: by Sammy (last edited Jun 08, 2011 09:46AM) (new)

Sammy I couldn't have said that any better Melissa. That is exactly how I feel about the whole thing.

lol. Sorry to tempt you. Are you not a fan of the DA site?


message 49: by new_user (new)

new_user Yeah... That's not the best wrench to throw in there. (view spoiler)


message 50: by Jackie (new)

Jackie Uhrmacher See, I would completely agree if this were a Romance novel, but it isn't. Yeah, the relationship was a big part of the story, but it wasn't the main focus. Who knows. Maybe I'll agree with you after I read it, but for now, I really don't. That's the wonderful thing about reading, though. We all take away something different.
