There were many things I enjoyed in this book, but I can’t say that the first 30% of the book held any of them.

I realize that the author was giving the story that happened between the first book and the current one, building the bridge, but it felt l

“Speak to me of your anxieties. You don't always have to be so positive, the strong one.”
Melora Johnson, A Sanctuary Built of Words: Poems of Peace, Grief, and Passion

“Outbuildings stand slant-sided, unable to resist the ravages of winter while, older still, a barn that could squats solidly in the middle of a field.”
Melora Johnson, A Sanctuary Built of Words: Poems of Peace, Grief, and Passion

“Night falls early, dark skies clear, all warmth races away into the stratosphere.”
Melora Johnson, A Sanctuary Built of Words: Poems of Peace, Grief, and Passion

“Stories may well be lies, but they are good lies that say true things, and which can sometimes pay the rent.”
Neil Gaiman

“The reason that fiction is more interesting than any other form of literature, to those who really like to study people, is that in fiction the author can really tell the truth without humiliating himself.”
Eleanor Roosevelt

“By now, it is probably very late at night, and you have stayed up to read this book when you should have gone to sleep. If this is the case, then I commend you for falling into my trap. It is a writer's greatest pleasure to hear that someone was kept up until the unholy hours of the morning reading one of his books. It goes back to authors being terrible people who delight in the suffering of others. Plus, we get a kickback from the caffeine industry...”
Brandon Sanderson, Alcatraz Versus the Evil Librarians

“If you want to write, if you want to create, you must be the most sublime fool that God ever turned out and sent rambling. You must write every single day of your life. You must read dreadful dumb books and glorious books, and let them wrestle in beautiful fights inside your head, vulgar one moment, brilliant the next. You must lurk in libraries and climb the stacks like ladders to sniff books like perfumes and wear books like hats upon your crazy heads. I wish you a wrestling match with your Creative Muse that will last a lifetime. I wish craziness and foolishness and madness upon you. May you live with hysteria, and out of it make fine stories — science fiction or otherwise. Which finally means, may you be in love every day for the next 20,000 days. And out of that love, remake a world.”
Ray Bradbury

“Easy reading is damn hard writing.”
Nathaniel Hawthorne
