#28 - Kushiel's Mercy - Jacqueline Carey

Life has been insane. Work has been insane. No time for a real post. Going away to Willow Valley in Lancaster, PA the weekend of 8/1. Doing Dutch Wonderland with the kids on Saturday 8/2. Anyone interested in coming along? So far it's us, my sister's brood, and her friend's family as well. We did this trip about 2 years ago and the kids have a great time. Dutch Wonderland is an amusement park designed specifically for the toddler and pre-school set, for those not in the know.

In my opinion, it's her best yet. I like Imri & Sidonie better than Phaedre and Jocelin. And I didn't notice any of that annoying repetitive background she used to put in to bring you up to speed on the previous books. That always felt very obvious and contrived to me.

If you can wait till Monday, and Elf is done with it by then, I'll loan it to you.

No need. Went to Barnes & Noble.

Yeah, I am liking the Imriel stories better over all. Hell, Imriel puts it best when he notes that Phdre is Kushiels Chosen, a Servant and Naamah, and Joscelin is her perfect companion and the greatest swordsman of his age. They are larger than life characters who've done a sheerly boggling amount of things most people have no context for.

Whereas Imriel is almost a regular guy. We, the readers, can understand his plights.

I work in Melville. Barnes & Noble is just up the road past the northern state. It's a 5 minute drive.

I vaguely remember a trip to Dutch Wonderland when I was in girl scouts, so like 30 years ago. We had a crazy leader who found lots of wacky things to take us to.

Hope your littles enjoy the rides.

Big Hugs!
