Q: Would you or do you choose a book solely on the cover?
A: I have. Sometimes it pays off and other times it does not. Sometimes the cover is the best thing going for the book, and other times, the cover doesn't do the tale justice.

  7. As with most of us, the cover is definitely what attracts me in the first instance but I always read the blurb too. 😉

  8. YES!!! The Friday 56 book? I want to check that out!
    You are so right about covers!! There are books I would not have read, simply because the cover looked boring. Then, there were books that had me salivating. Result? An unfinished book because of an undeveloped story.

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…

As conflict erupts in the kingdoms of men, an ancient enemy rises once again to threaten them all.

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…
