'I shouldn't have nagged', he said. 'I get like that sometimes.'That's me! Pretty much in a nutshell. I didn't expect such an insight - my bad for labelling where I should not have. It made me realise that in amongst the intricate plots, fascinating characters (am I the only one who loves Derek? I think not, although he's all mine! *cue evil laugh*) there is such depth and insight. And Kate...I love Kate. She feels realistic - all that time spent training to the detriment of all else? Because after all there are only so many hours in the day. (I'm going to tease this thread out over the weekend...I think there is a post in it somewhere *grin* I'm a post-hound :)
'It's okay'...I knew why he got like that. I'd seen him meticulously fold his clothes. His shave was perfect, his hair cut short, his nails clean and trimmed. I bet his room didn't have a single item out of place. When you live in chaos as a child, you strive to impose order over the world. Unfortunately, the world refuses to comply, so you have to settle for trying to control yourself, your habitat, and your friends.
And I've just finished reading Magic Strikes (the third book) [OMG it's good!] and found this little gem:
All of my guilt, all of my worry, all the anxiety and pain and regret, everything I had carefully packaged and stuffed away into the deepest recesses of myself so I could function, all of it swelled into an unbearable pressure. I fought to contain it, but it was like trying to hold back the tide. A hint of relief was all it took. The flood burst through my defenses and drowned me.So I simply had to let me fingers do the walking to determine if there was to be a fourth book (there is - Magic Bleeds) and as for what it is about...you can read all about it here! We wants it! Is it June yet? Me? A fan girl? Why ever would you think that?
So, have you been converted to a new author lately? A HUGE thank you to Shamyless Aymless for persevering in spite of my UF heroine block with this series - I so appreciate it! *happy dance*
Edited to correct the name of the title of the second book. Thank tabzyreads!
