I am definitely reading it! (Not sure when... But definitely reading it.)



I'm in the middle of chapter five. Her and Tybalt have just left Lily's knows.

Blind Michael's horrible!
If you want to read it between the books of this series, I am game. It seems like a great book. :)

He is horrible!

That sounds great. I'll let you know when I get my hands on a copy (I'm hoping it won't be too long)!


I'm now in Blind Michael's lands. I had forgotten what Luidaeg had to do to her!

I love the rhyme she used for the spell.
Great! :)

The series is getting better and better. I am halfway through the book, and I can't stop reading! I am now back in the "real" world. The atmosphere of tension is well done. The rhymes are great, and I love that Spike, the rose goblin, is with Tobbi. He is adorable. I wish I had my one Spike... I wish Tybalt played a greater rule,though.

There were a couple of big revelations which caught me by suprise. I wonder what the deal is with Toby’s mother, Amandine. I suspect that the Luidaeg, another character that I like, secretly like Tobi.

Ok, I finished the book and loved it!

I like May. She is a good addition to the series!

It'll probably take me a few days to finish.


May is awesome. 8)

I'm at the part where Quentin shows up. I love the feel of this book (the unknown quality of the surroundings, her being a child again, etc.).

No rush, I will start another book meanwhile. :)

I love the atmosphere as well.

I like Quentin more in this book.

Acacia is great! I was surpried to discover her identity.

I finished! (A couple days ago. Sorry for the lateness.)


I love May so much. I'm trying to puzzle things out about her. Like, had she been with Toby in Blind Michael's lands, would Toby actually have died? And other various questions.

Poor Quentin!

Geez, Toby is just constantly bleeding. :lol:

Also, are you interested in doing a read-a-long of The Hollow Places by T. Kingfisher (author of (pseudo sequel to) The Twisted Ones)? I'm being told I have to "Stop reading Toby" to read it. :lol:

(Can't blame anyone. I have to read it before another family member who's terrible about keeping things to themselves, and I hate spoilers!)

I don't think it's about the same person. Not sure if the creatures will feature or not. :eusa-think:

Great!

May is cool! I wonder if we see her in the next book!

Tobi leaps from one incident to another...
