There were once three kingdoms that made up the land of Illesya.
Now there is only one.
Three rulers remain. Two queens and a king.
Darkness, vengeance, snow.
A dark prince, an evil sorceress, and a princess of ice.
They are locked in an eternal struggle, each desiring something from the other.

Joshua E. Bigger Joshua E. Bigger's blog:
Love lives as love lives,
This human mind,
The past,
Lonesome,
Aching to the death bed,
Swears by its name.

Love sings as sparrows sing,
I sing for love is mine,
Me.

Concept free,
No more, I know thee,
No more this or that must be,
No definitions, please.

The Target (Will Robie, #3)The Target by David Baldacci

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Typical great Baldacci/Will Robie reading. Minimal foul language and the chemistry between Robie and Reel is what makes this book, and so far the series, so exciting. Maybe it's just me, but I love books that have male and female lead characters... Read more of this blog post »

Tana French Interview with Tana French
Dublin crime novelist Tana French has the kind of critical reviews that other writers would…well, die for. Her debut murder mystery, In the Woods , won rave reviews and multiple literary prizes upon its release in 2007. Since then, her books have tended to haunt the bestseller lists, on both sides of the pond, and for months at a time. British newspaper The Independent has dubbed French "The First Lady of Irish Crime," and The Washington Post says she is the most important crime novelist to emerge in the past ten years. ...more
