Guess what came in the mail a week early!!!
Yup. Tad Williams' Shadowrise. I pre-ordered it earlier this month and it wasn't supposed to be out until March! I have been waiting on this book since early 2007. 2007!
I've been loving the Shadowmarch novels although I'm going to have to read the summaries. All I can remember from where we left off is that Ferris Vansen and the Funderlings and come in contact with each other...I think we left them in the base of the castle (??) And Briony (who, I have to add, is one of my favorite female characters of all time, coming just short of Jamethial Knorth. She is also the character I've really just been able to connect with and relate to most out of all the books I've ever read) was with..some people...somewhere. And I'm pretty sure Barrick was beyond the Shadowline with the Qar. Maybe. And I remember stuff that *happened* in the Southland but I can't remember exactly where we left off.
Synopsis are my friends for these.
Anyways, had to share my pure and utter joy. :) All my other books are getting shelved and I'm not sorry about that at all. Look forward to comments, reviews etc on book 3 of the Shadowmarch series in up coming posts!
