We're plotting the next Jacqueline Carey read along. Naamah's Kiss is the first book in the third trilogy. It's not necessary to have read the first 2 trilogies to appreciate this book, as it occurs several generations after the first 2 trilogies. Here's our tentative schedule - and my thanks to Lynn for playing copilot on this read along as I deal with medical stuff.

Dec. 5th Week 1 - Chapters 1-12, Hosted by Lynn
Dec. 12th Week 2 - Chapters 13-26, Hosted by Susan
Dec. 19th Week 3 - Chapters 27-36, Hosted by Grace
Dec. 26th Week 4 - Chapters 37-48, Hosted by Allie
Jan. 2nd Week 5 - Chapters 49-60, Hosted by Susan
Jan. 9th Week 6 - Chapters 61-74, Hosted by Lisa
Jan 16th Week 7 - Chapters 75-End, Hosted by Lynn

Week 1's questions:

Firstly Carey has picked up the story a few generations down the line. How do you think this will affect the story, if at all?

We have a new female lead. What are your first impressions of Moirin?

I enjoyed the return to Alba, and once again meeting the Maghuin Dhonn - what did you make of the coming of age ritual?

The story already has the inclusion of magic and also visions of Gods - any predictions on what these visions and magic might bring to the story?

Week 2's Questions:
1) How does one go about finding their destiny? Do you think Moirin is doing a good job of finding her's? How did you find your own destiny, or have you?

2) Moirin is pretty uncomfortable within stone walls and cities in general. Have you ever found yourself in a similar position, whether in the forest or at sea or in a large city?

3) We continue to meet or hear about descendants of characters we met in the first 6 books. Who has caught your attention the most?

4) The Maghuin Dhonn. The Tsingani. Do you see parallels between the two or how they are treated?

5) First impressions of the denizens of the City of Elua? Of Raphael de Mereliot?

6) Morin continues her hunt for her D'Angeline heritage. What do you expect from Phanuel, her father?
