Reader's Discretion Advised

...this confuses me. So...it's like tumblr...for books?

Either way, I'm mainly on Goodreads. I do occasionally come here, and also do periodically import my shelves from GR here, but GR is a more sure bet for contacting me.

The White Road - Lynn Flewelling I don't care if other "true fans" were bitching about Sebrahn and how he squicked them out and how annoying these past couple of books have been because the characters are too reactive. This is that amazing part where character development happens. It is fantasy, you know, and not thriller, so it's okay for it to not be (and I paraphrase) "action-y enough and political-machination-y enough" and all that shit. It's a bit heavy-handed, but it's clearly developing Alec's character beyond that poor lost naive child we met in bk 1. He's still got his big heart, but he's got a bit more world-weary wisdom now and that shadow of loss that makes people interesting and deep. If anything, I dread the next book because apparently back to the roots is where we're heading.
