Oh, operamommy, I really think you're going to love them! Be careful in this thread though...you never know what kind of spoilers might show up! I really feel like the series stands on its own. She develops the characters so well and the plot, while obviously calling for some willfull suspension of disbelief, is solid. Its nice too that you have so many books to read before you end up *waiting* like the rest of us!
jgale, I aodre them both so much also! When The Fiery Cross came out, I spent almost two weeks reading it so I could savor every bit of it! I tend to read fast, and I tend to miss little things when I do that. It doesn't usually vex me at all, but with The Fiery Cross, I wanted to savor every moment I could with these characters...It was like spedning a couple of weeks with wonderful old friends!
Here's a link to the Amazon page for the new book: A Breath of Snow and Ashes
thoesly, I have read Lord John and The Private Matter. Now, I've never felt strongly about the character one way or the other, but I did really enjoy this. Mostly becase it was defintely a book by Diana (I'm on first name basis with her too! :LOL). Do you know what I mean? The same style and atmosphere. I really did enjoy it. Its pretty short...I think it would be worth trying. She does tell a great story!
My favorite, like I said, is Voyager. Mostly because I love the beginning where Brianna, Roger and Claire are doing their detective work and we are hearing Jamie's story from both sides...the trail he left in history and
his actual experience. It facsinating to me! Makes me wonder what my life will look like to anyone who mind dig in to it in 200 years.
Thanks for talking with me about this.
