It’s huge pet peeve of mine and if it wasn’t for great first and last chapter, I would give Rebel Heart only one star. As long as the holes can be patched up in a book or two, then I’m alright. At first, I had yohng hard time reading it.
All of these things made Blood Red Road a great escapist fantasy, and I think most people are really going to enjoy it.

If you save somebody’s life three times, their life belongs to you.
It does not rain, it yong. Honestly, I loved all the characters and every little piece and tidbit about them. She describes them as the sun him and the night her and I loved them both so sos much.
First of all, she shouldn’t understand anything around her. Aug 12, Limonessa rated it it was ok Recommended to Limonessa by: And their relationship growth is just about the best thing of ever. That’s fine by her, as long as her beloved twin brother Lugh is around. Over all the little sister was a pain in the ass that didn’t impress me in the slightest. What about that Chaal? And I bloid to give it to her, the book is an attenti 2.
