7/9/13 ** Re-read; this is time 3. Thinking a lot about the idea of religion. Individuals believe God is on their side, but those on the other side also believe in God. Wondering how this juxtaposition will be resolved in the third book, The Bitter Kingdom.
6/14 & 6/16/12 ** I enjoyed this YA fantasy so much and was so unwilling to leave the world that I read it again as soon as I finished it the first time.
6/21/12 ** My husband tells me that Rae Carson is signing ARCs of the sequel while at ALA this weekend. Hmmm...think he'll stand in line to get me a copy? He says I should have gone with him. Maybe he's right.
