How many chapters/day?

Sheri | 12199 comments Mod
52 total so 10 a day?

It works for me.

I like that this story picks up where the other story left off.


message 6: by Sheri, Book Ninja (new) - rated it 5 stars

Sheri | 12199 comments Mod
Yeah, I was thinking the same thing. Have you seen Alyssia around?

Leigh | 15189 comments Mod
No, I haven't. I hope she will be able to participate soon.

I messaged her. She said she would be here :)

Good. It will be good to have the group back together.

Lys (lysrowan) Hiya!
I will definitely read this one with you guys. My library is closed today, but I';ll grab it tomorrow and catch up.
How was everyone's holiday weekend?

Pretty quiet. We didn't have any plans so we've just been hanging around.

I forgot how eloquent her writing is. I like the way she expresses things -

The man's death cry reaches all the way up to the tower and wraps itself around my heart, calling for me to join it.

Yes, I love the writing. I am listening to this one. i like the way the narrator says the French names.

We were busy all weekend. We have had four get togethers so I am tired.

Lol, I am sure they are not being pronounced right in my head.

I usually skip over them because I can't pronounce them.


message 17: by Lys (new) - rated it 4 stars

Lys (lysrowan) Got it! Alright~ back to buddy reads! wooo!

YAY!

Yay Alyssia!

I love this book so much. I really like Sybella. We really didn't get to know much about her in the last book.


message 20: by Leigh, ⭐Wonder Woman⭐ (new) - rated it 5 stars

Leigh | 15189 comments Mod
Sybella is one quick thinking assassin also a kick-ass heroine. Love it!


message 21: by Lys (new) - rated it 4 stars

Lys (lysrowan) I am through yesterday's reading.
I love the timeframe, just like you two. It only took me a minute to be right back in the thick of the plot. Some of the details are still hazy, but the urgency of the overall arc is easily accessed.
I like Sybella a lot. I knew I would. I wanted more of her sooo much last book.
Without spoilers for this one, does anyone remember what we learned about Julian in the last book?
Was there anything/much? Is he one of Sybella's (view spoiler)

I can't remember hearing about him in the last book, so I think if he was in it, it was very minimal. A lot of her past is still unclear, though. We are just given pieces here and there.

You get this in this book (I think from today's reading) (view spoiler).

I think what I like most about Sybella is that in the last book (if I remember right) she was depicted as this dark, mysterious person and here she is more human - she is so depressed she is almost suicidal and is to the point of questioning her existence and the existence of her god.

Yes, he was. Her father is quite evil and depraved to use his daughters to further his ambition.

She wants to see marks where there are none. She is ready to avenge the innocent that have been harmed by evil leaders.

I remember being frustrated with the marques last book too. I would like to get to the point of knowing the logic on that.
I do like how often Sybella thinks of Ismae's "answer" to things regarding her own doubts - Ismae's faith in Mortain is much stronger, but even she was tested in this. I am looking forward to Sybella having a similar revelation to Ismae's last book.

Lys (lysrowan) Chapter 18, btw. I will catch up by the end of the night.

I was wondering if he was going to show up later in the story as an unexpected ally...

I hope so.
I have a weakness for the name Julian. It is delicious.

Lys (lysrowan) Although, (view spoiler)

Caught up.

Like I said above, I like how the author just hints at stuff without really telling you anything and then slowly reveals things as the story unfolds.

Chapter 25 (view spoiler)

Leigh | 15189 comments Mod
Why are we using spoilers? LOL


message 34: by Lys (new) - rated it 4 stars

Lys (lysrowan) I don't know - for a while we had a Tom of people doing our buddy reads and at different paces. ?
I suppose we're usually pretty consistent though.
Down with the spoilers! Lol
Love you Leigh!

Sybella likes Jullian reluctantly. He is the only one who truly likes her even if it is obsessively. Jullian has tried to protect her. I don't know who the other lover is.

Love you too. We missed you!

I was using them because Alyssia wasn't as far as I was ;)

Isamae and Sybella are both disillusioned with the Abbess and her decisions. I like the Beast, Benebic de Waroch. He is the perfect match for Sybella. They are both fierce warriors.

The Abbess has her own agenda. She is a bitch!!

Leigh | 15189 comments Mod
What is the Abbess's agenda? She really doesn't like Sybella. She is trying to get Sybella killed? Is the Abbess afraid that Sybella will find out her true mission?


message 43: by Sheri, Book Ninja (new) - rated it 5 stars

Sheri | 12199 comments Mod
I don't like the abbess either. I love Beast, though!!

Yes. I am Team Beast! The Duchess is so young to be running a kingdom.

What are we reading Monday? Down to You (The Bad Boys, #1) by M. Leighton The Lost Prince (The Iron Fey Call of the Forgotten, #1) by Julie Kagawa or something else?


message 46: by Lys (new) - rated it 4 stars

Lys (lysrowan) I'm a bit behind, so I am avoiding reading your comments. Hoping to get through this stack of papers and catch up soon.


message 47: by Leigh, ⭐Wonder Woman⭐ (new) - rated it 5 stars

Leigh | 15189 comments Mod
I haven't posted any spoilers. Sorry you are swamped with paperwork, Alyssia.


message 48: by Lys (new) - rated it 4 stars

Lys (lysrowan) It's ok. I am really digging this one though. I think I am on about ch. 28.


message 49: by Sheri, Book Ninja (new) - rated it 5 stars

Sheri | 12199 comments Mod
I really like this one, too. It makes me wonder why I waited so long :)

Leigh - either of those are fine with me.

Alyssia, do you have a choice?
