I talk to myself ...

The baby = 5 days late. Amb came over and we went to the pool because she's GINORMAS and I think I got a teeny, tiny bit of a sunburn. Maybe it's just the beginning of a tan. Sometimes it's hard to tell with me.

Anyway. I wrote another few hundred words on the story that still rattling around in my head. Not the one I've been posting at bay12_fic, the other one. The one that only I can see at this point. The one that I've been plotting for.ever. The amazing thing? I haven't killed anyone off yet. Don't worry, though, there's still time. Lots and lots of time. The blood and guts can wait for a few more pages. *evil laugh that sounds more diabolical than I can actually make it*

In sad news that should be happy but makes me feel a little bit empty inside, I finished the last two books that are currently out in the Dark-Hunter series. I really don't know what to do with myself now. I mean, I read 17 books (of the 18 because book #3 is still being borrowed. *cough*Jenn*cough*) and one short story in 9 days. I'm adrift. I found myself looking at the Dark-Hunter manga this morning and thinking "Hmmm, that would be a good thing, right?" Except that I don't want to pay $20 for a two part comic that is essentially book #2 which I read a week ago. It makes sense in my head. Truly.

So.
Book #75 - Dream Warrior (Dark-Hunter #18 and/or Dream-Hunters #4) by Sherrilyn Kenyon - This book opened up a whole new can of worms. Which is funny because once that can opens and you can look back on the clues and hints that have been dropped in previous books, you can see that there's a lot of stuff that's been leading up to this. A.Lot. Honestly, I love when a series is so well put together that every book deepens the mythology. So. Jericho is a Titan who used to be the right hand of Zeus before he laid down his sword and shield and walked away from it all. With a dark power rising and causing the pantheon to fracture, Delphine is sent in to recruit Jericho to the side of the Gods before all is lost. The burning question is: Why would a God who has been banished from Olympus and stripped of his power want to help the very Gods who turned him aside when he needed them most? I liked that Delphine was given some very big ties to characters in previous books and the morality of what Zeus did to the Dream-Hunters was explored. The recurring theme that you can't circumvent something that's fated to be (Acheron, anyone?) is thrust front and center again. It looks like there's going to be a showdown on Olympus. I'm curious how this is going to play out.

-and-

Book #76 - Bad Moon Rising (Dark-Hunter #19) by Sherrilyn Kenyon - I've been waiting for Fang's story since he was attacked and left comatose in Book #6. A Katagari wolf of the Kattalakis clan, Fang is caught in the Nether Realm after he is attacked by Daimons and has part of his soul stolen. The only person who he can connect with in the real world is Aimee Peltier, the only daughter of the Peltier bear clan. As he fights demons in the Nether Realm, she hunts down the Daimons who stole his soul to free him. Even if he finds a way free, they both know that a wolf and a bear can't be together. It's against the laws of the Omegrion, the very laws that both their families are sworn to uphold. It's interesting how the Were-Hunters are stratified; there are the soldiers of both races, the leaders, the Aristi. It also seems that a lot of Katagari are mated to Arcadians or humans. I'm wondering if this is going to have an impact somewhere down the line. Hmm.

It's taken me almost an hour to write this post up. Wow. FYI, yesterday's post was my 2,000th post here on LJ. That is a lot of words.
On that note, I'm out.
Later.
