It’s the final day of August, I’m pulling the woolly garments out of their drawers, and the online SFF celebration season in my part of the blogosphere is almost upon us. Let’s wrap this month up and get on with looking forward!
Our heroes finally find what they set out looking for – but oh, the cost… Bittersweet barely describes it. Let’s burn it all down discuss The Bitter Twins. Spoilers follow for chapter 47 through to the end.
Tor and Noon go looking for answers, and only find more questions. Hestillion seizes the chance for more power, and finds herself making an irrevocable move. And Vintage is up to her eyes in political trouble. Everything’s fine here, how are you? Let’s discuss The Bitter Twins. Spoilers follow for chapters 35 through 46.
It’s time for another round of playing catch-up, and today I am (desperately) catching up with the Read-along for The Bitter Twins! I left things at Part 3 (AKA chapters 23 to 34) of the book, in which a lot of the focus seems to be on various characters’ relationships – mostly romantic, though not very secure … for various reasons. Nothing is OK. Nothing. Let’s discuss The Bitter Twins. (With spoilers!)
It’s week two of our continuing Winnowing Flame Read-along, and things are getting pretty tense! As if they weren’t already… As most of the party set out on separate missions, Vintage is left holding down the fort, and it doesn’t take long for some interesting newcomers to pay a visit… Let’s discuss The Bitter Twins. Spoilers follow for chapters 13 through 22.
Life with their war beasts hasn’t been all roses for our heroes since we saw them last. They’re spending more time fighting amongst themselves than preparing to fight their enemies. And then there’s the matter of Hestillion having crossed enemy lines… Deep breaths. Let’s discuss The Bitter Twins. (Spoilers follow for chapters 1-12.)
The Ninth Rain has fallen, the stakes have been raised, and we find out why Vintage left so abruptly. And I have been flailing SO HARD. Let’s discuss the final chapters of The Ninth Rain! (With spoilers!)
Our unlikely band of heroes is beset by enemies and monsters on all sides this week, as their journey is quite literally derailed, leaving them scrambling to find shelter – and re-examining certain priorities. Meanwhile, the depth of Hestillion’s dedication to saving Ebora becomes increasingly illuminated… Let’s discuss The Ninth Rain. (Spoilers follow for chapters 24 through 36.)
Monsters, assassins, horrific dreams, and … steampunk trains? And all the while, the plot thickens… It’s time to discuss The Ninth Rain. NOTE: Spoilers follow for chapters 11 through 23.
The second of our two Read Alongs for Wyrd and Wonder has my attention today, as we’re discussing the first section of The Ninth Rain by Jen Williams! NOTE: Spoilers may follow for chapters 1 through 10 of this book.
