Books I read this week..

Rangers Apprentice #10 Emporor of Nihon-Ja.... This was a great book. I have loved the entire series!  This is supposedly the ending of the series, however.. I think he left it a bit open to continue it in a different direction, maybe new characters... I hope so at least!

Eona: the Last Dragoneye by Alison Goodman.. Book #2.. I think this series is ending with the second one, but it was great. Young Adult fantasy.  In the first book, Eon is actually an EonA, who has for several years been pretending to be a boy. Forced into it, actually. Anyways, if you like dragons, and are enchanted with Asian mythology and stuff, this would be good. Gah, loved 'em so much, I bought them.

Nora Roberts' new book Chasing Fire.. yeah, having to force myself to read it. I like the story line, about smoke jumpers in Montana. But, nobody dies until halfway through the book. *sigh* Very disappointed, because her last book "The Search" was sooooo good.

Currently reading "Red Glove" by Holly Black, sequel to "White Cat". Its an interesting mix of witchcraft, called curseworking, and the mob and private schools. I enjoyed the first one. We will see what happens with this second one.

Plague by Michael Grant

Number Four in the Gone series by Michael Grant continues to follow the kids of the FAYZ, the area surrounded by a dome where kids are developing powers and animals are mutants. When the done appeared, everyone over the age of 15 disappeared. Just.. POOF. Anyways, I love this series, but I think I am getting ready for it to end. That sounds terrible doesn't it? But yes, even though I really enjoy them, I think its time for the dome to come down.

Eternal Rider by Larrisa Ione

This is a nice spin-off series from the Demonica series. Lots of old characters pop in. This new set is about the Four Horseman of the Apocalypse.  This first book is about Ares, who would become War. His brother Reseph's Seal has broken and he is now Pestilence. Pestilence is trying to murder the person who holds the key to Ares' Seal, so that Ares will become War, the apocalypse happens, and evil reigns.  I really enjoyed this book. And Hal, the hellhound, is cute, lol.

Reading.. Where did it go?

I haven't been reading a whole lot lately. I mistakenly found this game on facebook called "Dragons of Atlantis" and I am completely addicted to it. Luckily, there are times when long upgrades have to be done, so that has become reading time (and in between attacking camps and wilderness lol). Help me! I am addicted! Anyways, I am reading the new Gena Showalter book, and I re-read "Ruins of Gorlan" the first book in the Rangers Apprentice series by John Flanagan. So Good!
