This week, I'm working on Everblaze, the third in the Keeper of the Lost Cities middle grade fantasy series by Shannon Messenger.
I know, breaking out of the cozies I've been reading almost two months. It's nice to be reading something different for a change. I love my cozies, but I need a break over so often, and this series is always fun that way.
It gets off to a great start, too, with a great first line:
"What are you waiting for?" Keefe shouted over the howling wind and the roaring sea. "Don't tell me the great Sophie Foster is afraid."
Page 56 finds the same two characters and this line from Keefe:
Keefe groaned as he sat up, rubbing his left shoulder. "I think we need to work on your landings, Foster."
Keefe is always good for a quote, obviously.
Since I won't see you before, have a Merry Christmas. And in case I don't get away from time with family to play next week (which is a very real possibility), Happy New Year as well.
