Ok just finished part two!

Still really enjoying the book so far, baddies are really hateable on a Ramsay Bolton level.

I've also learnt that Jen Williams is not afraid to kill her darlings! Poor Hollie! I really loved her and her strange little house and genuinely thought she had a plan up her sleeve when Kane came calling.

I'm loving the humour and think it's really effective set against the impending sense of Doom what with Y'Ruen and her army marching across the land completely unopposed. Does anyone else third the 33rd, 97th and twelfth really scary? They really freak me out!

I think we're right in that Frith and Wydrin will eventually get together. Dreyda informs Frith that he can only use his magic if he is feeling really emotional such as rage but then Wydrin points out that he was able to heal her arm with it so he must love her a little bit, or really hate her?! Which is basically the same thing.

I am wondering if Sebastian and Crowleo might get it together? There was a bit of flirting until they were rudely disrupted by shit going down!

The concept of the tunnels is interesting maybe they may hold the key for not only aiding Frith to get his castle back, but to defeat the dragon.

And where/what will Wydrin do next? Will she try to help her friend Sebastian or go to Frith on the Nowhere Isles. Or she may do something else entirely?

And is Kane really dead and where exactly did he get his powers from?

Argh haven't quite finished part two yet but it's so good! I'm surprised at how quickly I'm reading this book.

Just finished chapter 12!

It's a really strong start. I absolutely love Wydrin and the fact she just openly takes the piss out of Frith and yes @m3mnoch I can see they getting together too!

I love how a lot of the charaters are female such as Wydrin, Y'Ruen and her snake lady warriors.

I saw the Gallo betrayal coming too, but it was done well. I was positively screaming at the book - stop opening the jars!

I couldn't believe stabbed Sebastian I really thought he was going to die and was nooo I like him it's only page 67 but he seems ok now.

I can't work out if I like Frith or not yes. I feel sorry for him because he was tortured etc but I also get the impression that he's a dark horse and like Gallo, he's not to be trusted! And yes, I'm very curious as to how he escaped too!

Yeah! Great theme!

My copy has just arrived in the post! Will start reading today!

Congratulations @sennydreadful on your book deal. Great to know dreams can and do become reality  :)


Just bought my copy from Amazon after reading in Jen William's bio that she writes sword and sorcery novels with plenty of banter and magic- my two favourite things!

Plus I like to support fellow female writers  ;D

Ooh new book for book club  :D

I don't think I'll be able to participate this month, in what has been the hardest theme ever!!!!!  :o Am going to Glastonbury Festival tomorrow but good luck everyone! Can't wait to read them all when I get back  :D

I think so far this is the hardest theme ever! I got a chechen mafia boss but am really struggling with thinking of something as I don't want it to be politically offensive due to the chechen war.

So I've just got to chapter 30 still really enjoying it. I'm loving that Zhou's getting even more bad ass now that he's got special powers.

I also still really like Haung, (managed to get the girl in the end  :) ) he shows his good side by sparing Zhou's life when he captured Hsin and possibly saved his life. Something I'll think he'll regret. I think there will be a big face off between them at some point.

Anyway I'm off to read some more... ;D
