Martak just stared at her with puzzlement, and she stared back stubbornly.
"You're mad at me, aren't you, Martak?"

PROLOGUE

Ten toes overlapping
Ten fingertips pressing
Five senses blending
Two hearts merging
Minds converging
Each half-soul swirling
In the universe
Unites and pours into
One seamless skin,

A perfect whole.

  1. I love the prologue, gorgeous. I like that she is feisty, as well. Going to possibly be a journey from the 56 to the promise of the prologue.

  2. Love the prologue, it is that type of month isn't it? To swoon and fully engross yourself in romance novels :)

  3. I love the sound of both the prologue and the first sentences! It has a very fairy tale-esque sound to it while the main character also sounds quite spunky! I wonder why Martak is mad. Thanks for hosting :) I hope you have a great weekend!

REVIEW:
Such great animation!
There was always something going on in this movie. Even though it was a story I have seen played out a million times and a million different ways, they all are different too. This had more of a story. It was very magical and is definitely fun for the whole family.
Want to point out, Max, the dog, stole the show for me. He is so adorable, even if animation. Such a good dog.
This is one of those Christmas movies that you really can enjoy all year round. It has enough laughs, fun and morals to be played anytime. Plus there is nothing wrong with Christmas cheer in February.

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…
