Kathy | 7950 comments I loved this one! OMG! It's so good! I liked it better than the first one! Enjoy you guys! :D


message 3: by Vicki (new)

Vicki (goodreadscomboobooper49) | 32355 comments Better? Cool!! I hardly remember the first one...as usual. Lol


message 4: by Mandiann (new)

Mandiann (goodreadscommandiann) | 7529 comments Better than the first? Not sure how that is possible because the first was AMAZING, but I am so excited!!


message 5: by Kathy (new)

Kathy | 7950 comments I know I know I know!! lol!
I loved it too! It's definitely darker and D'Albret is so much worse in this one! That's all I'm going to say! So I'll shut up now or spoilers will start flying! And we can't have that! Enjoy! :D

I cannot wait until book #3!!!

message 11: by Mandiann (new)

Mandiann (goodreadscommandiann) | 7529 comments What do you think, Vicki? Should we push it a few days? I can probably manage to start tomorrow if you can but I am equally okay with focusing on my other books too.


message 12: by Vicki (new)

Vicki (goodreadscomboobooper49) | 32355 comments Sorry Mandiann, I've been so busy the past two days I didn't see this. I'm okay with moving it too but it's one of my copycat reads. I need to finish it by the 28th. LOL Is it doable for you if we move it to Feb. 21? We can leave this thread but change the date. It looks like it's just you and me. LOL


message 13: by Mandiann (new)

Mandiann (goodreadscommandiann) | 7529 comments Yes its one of my copycats too. I am off next weekend and will have plenty of reading time for it. I am also almost down to two book at the moment.

Mandiann (goodreadscommandiann) | 7529 comments I just finished chapter 10. I am really curious (view spoiler)

I wish I could keep reading more but I am going to switch books as I have too many BR on the go.

I noticed you started. How far are you and what do you think so far?


message 34: by Vicki (last edited Feb 22, 2014 04:33PM) (new)

Vicki (goodreadscomboobooper49) | 32355 comments I already read about half of this last year as I said in the sprint thread, but I've forgotten most of it. I'm in chapter 4 this time.

I did remember that (view spoiler)

Regarding your post in message 32, I know!!! (view spoiler)

Your second spoiler in #32 I want to see that happen as well. (view spoiler)

Odette: (view spoiler)

I remember reading book 1 and thinking it was too confusing, but I absolutely loved it! Reading it with others helped, of course. And Trisha and some other readers raved over book 2. She doesn't rave easily, so I am sure this is an amazing book too. I am loving it so far, except for the godawful male character(s) who are such pigs!


message 35: by Mandiann (new)

Mandiann (goodreadscommandiann) | 7529 comments But this series does have some really amazing male characters as well. I know though, the ones you are referring to are horrible creatures.

I read book one on my kobo from my library and it did not have the map or list of characters that my hardcover copy of book two has. I am really enjoying those 4 pages and find myself flipping to them regularly.

I hope when Sybella (view spoiler)

Mandiann (goodreadscommandiann) | 7529 comments Yes, she has, but her being back in the picture reminded me of it.


message 41: by Vicki (new)

Vicki (goodreadscomboobooper49) | 32355 comments OH OKAY. It's a good thing that most authors have a good way to "review" in their subsequent books. I forget way too much! LOL
