Good. :) I am looking forward to reading The Dark-Hunter series. I have only read Fantasy Lover. I doubt I will get any farther than that in the series this year. Maybe next...

You mean with the Noise? Or do you just mean the world building? If you're talking about the Noise, you get really used to it. The 1st book is all 1st person from Todd's POV, and the second alternates between Todd's 1st person POV and Viola's 1st person POV. Todd has Noise, Viola doesn't (no women do).

***Side note for everyone wondering what I'm talking about: There was a virus that only affected men. Now everyone can hear their thoughts--every little thing that flits through their brain, and they call it your Noise.***

So I would be reading a chapter from Viola's POV, and I would think "Don't think about that--they'll hear your Noise!" and then I would remember Viola doesn't have Noise--her thoughts are her own. So yes, you get very used to the concept & language of the Noise.

If you're talking world building, it's my fave kind of world building--immersion. When the author just drops you into the world and you pick up clues here and there about what's going on. I prefer it to an info dump--it gives it a bit more mystery. :)

I've read the 1st two and didn't have a problem with them--the first was really good, and the 2nd was awesome. The last one has the best rating of all, so I'm very looking forward to it.


message 22: by Literary Ames (new)

Literary Ames (amyorames) | 1854 comments Thank you, LLL! I was quite surprised with the change in language after reading the amazing prequel (from Viola's POV) and was having trouble understanding what was going on especially since Todd seems quite uneducated. Now that I know it gets better I'll make an effort to push forward. :)

Crystal S (crystalann) | 487 comments I'm in. I've got books in mind and will post them later when I have time. I love that this is only 3 books which is so do-able. For me at least. Other monthly challenges around Goodreads require reading so many books that the challenge for me is, not the finding of the books that fit the categories, but the finishing of that many books.

Charlotte (Buried in Books) | 557 comments Would Night Embrace by Sherrilyn Kenyon count for the Valentines catergory.

I mean, an embrace can lead to lovin (plus I started it last night and am really enjoying it - Talon in a pink towel *goes all dreamy*). It's left me with "a lovin feelin"!


message 37: by Sandra, Kindle Operator Licence Required (new)

Sandra | 23908 comments Yep, Charlotte that qualifies. Embrace certainly sounds Valentiney to me. LOL.

What did you think of Dragon Warrior?


message 45: by [deleted user] (last edited Feb 12, 2011 06:12AM) (new)

Oh my Gosh I LOVED it. It was funny and sad and pretty much everything I was hoping for as a next in series book. For me the mark of a truely awesome book is one that can make you laugh out loud and run for a box of kleenex and this book did both. I can't wait to get my hands on the next book Mystical Warrior (Midnight Bay, #3) by Janet Chapman which is due out the end of June


message 46: by Sandra, Kindle Operator Licence Required (new)

Sandra | 23908 comments Excellent news Kat, I got Dragon Warrior (Midnight Bay, #2) by Janet Chapman last week or the week before, and I've preordered Mystical Warrior (Midnight Bay, #3) by Janet Chapman of course. But it's always reassuring to hear someone else really liked something you've picked.


message 47: by [deleted user] (new)

Sandra I'd love to know what you think of Dragon Warrior when you get around to reading it :0) I'm a huge fan of Janet Chapmans I haven't finished her Highlander series yet but I think they will be moved to the top of TBR as part of my March reading list.
