For a short snippet of what I said about Rose:
“The characters and their world will haunt me for the rest of my life.”
Yep. Still haunted.
This book literally tore my heart in two when I read it the first time. I had tears streaming down my face. But I love books that make me FEEL as opposed to leaving me lukewarm, so this was the perfect book for me. If you’re hopped up on Romancelandia’s supposed “rules”, this may not be the book for you. Me? I think some rules were meant to be broken and Joely breaks them superbly. I LOVE series books and I love THIS series. “Road” is a great sequel to Rose and has me pining for the third installment, tentatively titled Return to Shanhasson. But seeing how busy poor Joely is and intends to be, I might have to wait awhile. (*off screen* *SOOOOOOOOOB* CRUEL FATES!!!)
Ok, ok. I’m composed. I can wait.
Haha, not to worry, dear Soleil, but the first draft of Return to Shanhasson is indeed finished and only awaits Revision Hell. The only problem will be deciding which Revision Hell to tackle first…
Thank you so much, Soleil!
And yes, Gregar haunts me too. He always will.
