The Law of Nines, Terry Goodkind
i needed to go to my home province and chose this as my travel reading
i hope to finish it while there so i can leave the book with my ma (she asks for my books so i ship her a few once in a while) and save me logistics costs
i managed to do so and racked up a few weird coincidences in the process: started this after reading ix kinsey millhone stories in succession (a through i), finished this on ixseptember (ixth month) at roughly ix in the morning

while away visiting my folks, i saw this sold with Micro as a ii-book set
