Stupid, arrogant! thought the Warden. Turn your back on a panther? You’re lucky to be alive. But then he looked at Kitra and her companions’ faces. Their expressions were a mix of horror, shock, and satisfaction.
The Warden smiled. Well done, Dox! That couldn’t have gone any better! Not only were the cats awake, they almost tore your arm off. You just doubled my asking price! Well done, thought the Warden as he helped the Minotaur back to his feet.
“Are you alright?” the Warden asked as he looked at Dox’s shredded arm. “I can get you something for the pain. We’ll need to stitch that up.”
Blood gushed from several large gashes in the beast-man’s forearm, but he didn’t seem bothered by it. “I’m fine, master. The pain is gone,” answered Dox.
“You’re making a mess, Dox; go get that cleaned up.”
            The beast-man nodded. He grabbed a cloth, wrapped his wounded arm, and left the tent.
            “I must have him,” said the war maiden.
            “Excellent! Now, we only need settle on a price, and the beast is yours. The one with the four white socks, correct?” asked the Warden.
            The war maiden didn’t even bother looking at Kai or the Warden as she answered. Her gaze was still fixed on Kelor. “I said I want this one. The one with no fear,” said Kitra as she pointed to Kelor.
            I knew you were going to say that. The little pain put on too good of a show. I could make a fortune with him in the arena, thought the Warden. “Are you sure, my lady? As I mentioned before, the panthers can be a stubborn and ill tempered race, this one most of all… as you can clearly see.”
Kitra stood up and faced the Warden. “I want him. He’s perfect,” she said as she pointed at Kelor. “Let’s be done with it; I have other duties that require my attention.”
The Warden forced a smile as he ushered the group back to the receiving area of the tent. Fine, have it your way, but it’s gonna cost you, he thought.

What you can't see can hurt you. Trapped in a violent, controlling relationship with a wealthy scientist, Cecilia (Elisabeth Moss) escapes in the dead of night and disappears into hiding. But when her abusive ex suddenly dies, Cecilia suspects his death was a hoax. As a series of eerie coincidences turns lethal, threatening the lives of those she loves, Cecilia's sanity begins to unravel while she desperately tries to prove she is being hunted by someone nobody can see. 


REVIEW:
I sorta hated the beginning.
Starts outs so dark that you can't really make anything out. Hard to know what's going on if you can't see.
It doesn't take long to get light though.
Thankfully.
Man, does the story ever pick up after that. I don't remember much about the original but this one is intense. Right to the very last second too.
Sydney is badass and shows it throughout. Can you imagine what it would be like if everyone thought you were o…

In the mythical continent of Westeros, several powerful families fight for control of the Seven Kingdoms. As conflict erupts in the kingdoms of men, an ancient enemy rises once again to threaten them all. Meanwhile, the last heirs of a recently usurped dynasty plot to take back their homeland from across the Narrow Sea.
This is the eighth and final season.



REVIEW: I loved the whole series, but especially loved this season as it wrapped it all up.  There were a couple of moments that were so incredibly tragic, but also a couple moments where the most tragic things couldn't have happened to better people. Take Sussy for example. God, how I hated that woman through the whole show and couldn't wait for her to get what was coming to her. Did she get it here? You have to watch and see! This is the season where you will sit on the edge of your seat, waiting to see who will win the kingdom. Does your favorite character prevail above the others? MIne d…

REVIEW: Inside the prize pack my family received, was some super cool experiments to try. Here is a snap of our Levitation adventures;


It was so much fun to do! It was super cool to watch the tinsel levitate too! Then we sat to watch the movie.
What a good movie for the whole family! It was filled with action and adventure. Plus the story line was what I appreciated most.
The hubby had lots to say about this one. He was happiest that the film focused on one of the original Spider-man nemesis', Mysterio. He is one of the best Ma…
