Re: Today's snippet
- Thank you! Now I'm even more excited for the next book!
Oooo...and more about Seregil's past. I'm glad Mydri makes at least a
brief flash back appearance too! She may not be the nice sweet sister
Adzriel is, but she cares enough that she showed up to see Seregil in
TM. There was a brief mention of Illina here too, so I wonder if
there'll be more on her and Shalar in the next book as well...
Thank you!!! This is ONE of the areas that has piqued my
curiousity! I miss the boys, and am anxiously waiting to become
involved in their lives again.
This is a good time to introduce others to the NR series. I've been
making a point of recommending it to at least one person a week.
Those I know have had nothing but good to say of the series. The
others are people in the bookstore looking for something new, so
feedback is unlikely, but I'm sure the series is being enjoyed by
those folks as well.
