ღஐღCielito Lindo I especially love Aislinn and Ani-Rae <3

Aine The naming seems to be a group effort. Most (if not all) of them have had working titles that didn't make it to the final cut. :)

And I love the titles, too.

Mariaa is this book good? coz all the other books seemed preee bad :L

Katie I was referring to the book titles. And what's up with the condescending tone? I'm from Ireland, I could figure out as much myself.

Katie I'm sorry for misinterpreting your comment. I shouldn't have said anything, probably.

Sorry, again.

Amy Conradie sorry if blabbering is not useful, but... ill try and explain some of the titles, not that that awnsers the question completely

ive noticed that the titles are words used alot in the books, like wicked lovely rather than being referred to as 'wicked lovely' in the book it was used like '...wicked, and lovely...'

ink exchange was something in the book, but the actual ink exchange (not sure if verb or noun) is when irial gives his blood to tatoo leslie-thereby linking himself to leslie- in order to be able to feed on mortal emotions, but it was an exchange so leslie's mortality had an effect on him as much as his blood affected leslie

fragile eternity was seths being fragile and constantly referring to himself as such, and the eternity part was because everyone knew keenan had eternity with aislinn and seth wanted that eternity with her, or it could just be referring to him being mortal whenever he visits fairy during his unusual eternity

radiant shadows is a crossover where 'radiant' refers to the high court, ani called devlin radiant in that way-orderly, pure-and shadows was a reference to the dark court, and maybe the court of shadows, but it could either be referring to basically ANYTHING in the book, devlin being 'born' of discord and order makes him radiant and shadows, or ani and him choosing to leave the dark court with devlin, or maybe sorcha and bananach's feud, im not sure but one of those seems likely

i havent read darkest mercy though, so... dont know yet
