new book  
I like it...even the last story. I think the reason I liked High Lord's Daughter however was I was thinking I would hate it. The time was hard to follow. I thought once a year had passed and it was 17 years. But over all? Not bad. Loved Shades of Honor. And Winsol Gifts was ...um cute. XD Family was good but for a while there I thought I was going to be really mad.

Any one else?

Really out March 1 but I know of one other person who got luck. If you got your book from B&N just go by and ask for it. They may give it to you. :D

I preordered mine in october from bookdepository and they shipped it last week. Arrived on thursday, I read it all during the night and i cried a lot!
Didn't like it. Unfortunately.
I think it's because I knew it was the very end.
Shades of Honor is good to read, Winsol Gifts and Family are simply slices of life easily imagined, nice but nothing more. And when you understand where The High Lord's daughter is going, the previous ones seems to be there only to sweeten things about the new role of Daemon's new lover.
She and Daemon are my best favourite characters, their characterization so good and deep, but they almost seem different people in the last story. And it's a too short story to present such sort of development between the two.
It's sad how they come together, it's sad how their relationship proceed,, it's sad the knowledge of both that there always will be Jaenelle in Daemon's heart of hearts (but I wouldn't want it different).
I'd very much prefer if they found their HEA with completely new characters, in respect of their previous stories and characterization.

I adore spoilers, would you mind PMing me who Deamon's new lover is? I'm one of those people who refuses to read a book without knowing the ending first. :D

If it's who I suspect it is, I'll be very disappointed...unless she's an entirely new character.

I think you'll be disappointed like me! >.<

I agree when I read the others I kept going I KNOW WHERE THIS IS LEADING! It was interesting but kind of took away from it.

I half would have liked a new char for each and half not. I mean to get a whole new char in like 100 pages...I think it would have even been worst.
Ariel Kurantitangrain on February 28th, 2011 04:15 pm (UTC)
Yep. To introduce new characters the author had to do it in a long novel, this was too short. And I think the shortness is the biggest problem anyway, 'cause in a long story maybe she could have explained better, introduced something to gradually change their feelings for each other.
As it is, it seems too abrupt, and, for the way I pictured these two, out of character. Expecially her.
It's the definite conclusion to a rather long series with many characters, more or less but all important and loved: there isn't a hint about all the covens and boyos in none of the four stories! ^^"

Forgive my ignorance, but as I'm reading comments - Can someone tell me what everyone means by 'Mary Sue'???
Queen Midalah of Nebulaqueenmidalah on March 1st, 2011 04:15 am (UTC)
Here is the wiki definition

Essentially a Mary Sue is the author's self-insertion into the story.

I agree. And like you am so glad I knew before hand what to expect.
Queen Midalah of Nebulaqueenmidalah on March 2nd, 2011 03:24 am (UTC)
Yeah but even though it seemed that way in some ways, I actually *enjoyed* reading it.

I just finished the book and the only stories I actually enjoyed were "Winsol Gifts" and "Shades of Honor". I thought I was going to enjoy "Family" despite the content, but then it delved into what I despised about "High Lord's Daughter" and now I just feel very sick and heart sore. I feel like she gave up on us and just slapped us all in the face.
