  1. *JUMPS UP AND DOWN*

    Thank you, K!! I don’t have time to re-read, therefore, this will help me remember all the details before reading future Elder Races books! I’m glancing at this right now and I can’t believe all the details on here that I’ve already forgotten!!!! This will save me time!!!

    WOO HOO!!! xoxoxo!!!!

    1. Thanks, Lea. I couldn’t believe how much I had forgotten, either, and I didn’t even read it that long ago. I am definitely looking forward to the next ones, too.

  2. I read Dragon Bound after you and I still forgot the details. LOL. I think it’s because we reead book after book. Sometimes I get my characters and series mixed up, too. LOL.

    This character guide idea of yours is a lifesaver! So glad you started this one early on in the series! :-)

  3. BTW, after posting my latest comment above, I got the following message from wordpress that cracked me up!!!

    “You are posting comments too quickly. Slow down”

    I can’t help it if this series excites me! LOL…………

  4. Don’t you love it when the computer gets a snarky attitude? Seriously…

    I have to admit, it was pure selfishness on my part, doing one that only had one book was such a break. I usually get lazy after a few weeks on one, and “forget” to work on them, so this gave me a bit of a kick in the ass to get me going again.

    1. I am ashamed to admit that I haven’t even gotten to read Kinked yet. I am so far behind it is sickening. Hopefully it will be done by next week, though, since I am getting antsy to read it.
