I KNOW!!!  We'll just have to save that idea for another release.  *wink*

I swear I meantioned the breaking of Bastille at the release... and a whole bunch of things I'm too lazy to type here (mostly because I've forgotten them) as to why it's a valid reason.  But I'm thinking that's how she's going to get her talent.
I vaguely remember that. ha ha.

I think.

><

OMGSH I can't wait for another release, the last one was so much fun.  We can all running around screaming about Bastille being dead again.

Book 3 is very good. I love the "Not a" bits and the new cousin's talent.
All Saiyuki fans should check out Dazzle! Emotionally wrenching action-adventure and quirky humor! (At least read chapter 6 and tell me if you're not hooked.) Volume 10 out now!

Nature's first green is gold
Her hardest hue to hold. Her early leaf's a flower;
But only so an hour. Then leaf subsides to leaf.
So Eden sank to grief, So dawn goes down to day.
Nothing gold can stay.

See, I was missing reactions like that. If you think it's cruel I'll stop though. I'm not going to give anything away anyway, but a few cryptic comments here and there can help keep things interesting.

We read the book in July and gave Brandon our comments and suggestions. The final book is sure to have changes, possibly significant ones. That's what happens with drafting.

Being an Alpha Reader isn't a paying job (I don't think), it's just that Ookla's been friends with Brandon Sanderson for a long time, so he gets to read a lot of his manuscripts.

And don't believe him when he says he'll stop being cryptic if you think it's cruel.  :-)

Not that I do think it's cruel, I think it does help spice up the forum and that's one thing I was missing about the pre-HOA days.

Oh okay. That's good news I think.  :-\ I still think he's really lucky.

I agree with you Miyabi about not being able to wait for the next release.  :D  It's going to be so much fun... expeically with our current plans.

And Ook, you've got to give us a little something more for us to play with. I think we're running out of idea fodder.  Please?

It's not coming until October. I can't say too much yet, you know? But let's say Bastille made a very good guess that Shasta's talent will play an important role in book 3.

I bet there's going to be more about why Bastille was set up to fall. And yes, I think it was done on purpose. I'm also not sure about the Knights in general, although that's because we haven't met any of them but Draulin and Bastille.

I'm guessing there will be politics and government leader whatnots in the 3rd book. I also wouldn't be surprised if the Worldspire they saw in book 2 breaks. End of the world, anybody? :D

I agree. Very good ideas. I want to find out why Bastille was set up to fail as well. I think her mother did it personally.
