I liked the last book. I know I am in the minority, but it was better than the first one IMO.

Ok so I'm confused about something

star IC

How does she know for a fact that it's that fucking fix's baby. I mean I know that the last night she and Dorian were together, um .. He didn't provide his seed to that right opening. But was it not just that morning and the previous day that they were getting it on. Somethings definitely up. I'm not sold completely that asshole fox is the dad.
She's different than most. Maybe she can't get pg like most do. Maybe 'swallowing' does it for her roflmao

I read the description of the next book on her site and I really wasn't pleased. She also said she wrote the last book in 4 weeks!! Do any of you think it could turn out that fantastic?

It just don't seem like a lot of effort went into it..

Hopefully she was just referring to the time the first draft was written in, not the finished book. I think it's been deliberately left ambiguous as to who's actually the baby daddy smile , but Eugenie believes it's the FF's.

I was lucky enough to read the arc of the "Shadow Heir".

*****SPOILER ALERT*****DO NOT READ IF YOU DON'T WANT TO KNOW********



If any of you read my previous comments, you know how I felt about the last Dark Swan book. This one is definately an improvement from the last. There isn't much action in the beginning. Eugenie's preggo, so not much she can do about it, but mid way she has the babies, then things start to happen. She goes back to the Otherworld because of an urgent matter...and Kiyo comes back about half way in the book at (ironically) Dorian's request to help the Otherworld resolve this winter blight that has caused devastation throughout the lands due to an evil selfish Queen in another territory. Eugenie of course joins the quest to find a way to save her people. There is a major plot twist about three quarters into the story, which ties into the whole destiny of "Eugenie's son will conquer the universe bit". You'll just have to read to find out. :P

Let's just say, as a Dorian fan, I'm content with the ending. S'all I'm saying.

Here are some tid-bits I thought amusing:

<< "Their names are Isaac and Ivy," I began.
"Isaac?" he repeated.
"It's a nice name. A human name."
"I'm aware. But it's not the name I'd give to a conqueror of worlds," Dorian explained. He
considered. "I would have gone with Thundro or Ragnor. I might just call him Thundro
anyway.">>


Several pages later....


<< "Everything's fine," I said, with a tight smile. "Kiyo was just giving me his latest explanation
about how my son is a terror to be feared."

Dorian scoffed. "Little Thundro? A terror? Hardly, unless perhaps we're discussing diapers."

Kiyo's hardened expression momentarily faltered. "Wait. You named your son, Thundro?">>

I was going to say the same. Thank you! Thank you! Heck i'm only seconds away from begging for more details. I really can't wait for this book to come out. Almost a whole year to make a person wait is just not right. smile

I suspected at least one of the kids wouldn't look like Kiyo. And that's good, as I still want Eug to have a fox stole for chilly days.

Hi Hey everyone!

Umm...wow, rereading what I wrote I'm a bit embarassed at all my run-on sentences. confused

I'm happy to answer questions, but I'm not sure what your rule is on spoilers. I don't want to ruin it for anyone. smile

I will say, the quality is consistent with the first two books. Eugenie is back to being more herself (meaning ass kicking and independent). Kiyo really doesn't get as big a role which was a relief and when he did appear, there were some snarky Dorian comments to balance it.

I will say, I found there to be less humor as in other books and there were some decisions that Eugenie made which annoyed me, but nothing that totally ruined my enjoyment of the story. I liked the plot twist because I didn't see it coming...but there are some hints others may pick up on faster than me. I was also satisfied with the resolve at the end.

To answer your question, I'm not a mod on Chloe Neill's site. I know someone who is but I'm not sure what her handle is on Chloe's forum. I believe she was known as Ipcoder on the CH site.

I haven't even read "Drink Deep" yet, but it's on my list this week as well as "Heart of Steel".

24% into Shadow Heir and it's ok so far. Nothing much going on. She's pregnant and it's all a little normal day to day stuff. Dorian is pleasant as always. Just love him! So nothing worthy to write about quite yet.

Shadow Heir is next on mt TBR pile.. can't wait to start.. I am a bit scared because I have feeling she won't end up with Dorian and she'll just end up on her own raising her babies Sad
