I have just returned from an exciting Christmas adventure with my family -- we are thoroughly stuffed with large bird (aka. turkey) and mounds of desserts that, I fear, have slapped themselves straight to the places I don't want them. However, with that aside, it was a most enjoyable holiday :)
I managed to snatch three delightfully epic books this week and have devoured them in excitement. They. are. amazing. I'll just give a wee bit about em here:
The Land of Darkness by C.S. Lakin
This book is by far the best of Lakin's work that I've read. In fact, there were several scenes that made me nearly come to tears -- it was brilliantly written and, although I found it hard to connect with the character's emotions, the words they spoke were very powerful. 4/5 stars.
The House of Dark Shadows by Robert Liparulo
This book wasn't quite as good as I was expecting it to be, however I think that as the series progresses it gets better. The House of Dark Shadows appears to be a kind of introduction to the better stuff that will come. In any case, it was still quite good -- I found it to be a very fast read. Not as chilling as I'd expected it :P although it did have me glancing at my bedroom door in wonder a few times.
The Errant King by Wayne Thomas Batson
This. Book. Was. Am.a.z.in.g!!! It was amazing. I can't say any more except for the fact that it had me turning pages late into the night as I was drawn into a majestic land where each adventure made your bones turn cold.
Anyways, I shall write more -- I WILL RETURN!! but I gotta hit some Boxing Day sales first ;) I'll update ya'll later!

News: Since April of last year I have managed to accomplish several monumental things in my studies, but I update you now to tell you that three nights ago I had the best sleep since I last visited my aunt's house (years ago) and probably will never have another good sleep like it for years to come *nods sagely*.
