I'm sure once I'm done with my August work rush I'll start a countdown for this novel..

I skimmed over the announcement because there are so many things I hope Brandon can fit into this novel.  I don't want to ruin the suspense.  I love Brandon's writings, I'm so nervous how things are going to turn out with someone new writing this tale.

Really all the review says is that the book belongs to the series and is one of the better books

Yeah, that, and it gets you really really excited for the book to come out. I was doing quite well with waiting until I saw this on Dragonmount, but since reading it I've been horribly impatient. I probably shouldn't have read it, though it did make me even more excited than ever.

There is this thread over at dragonmount aswell where a guy pretty much through guesses/theories/propechys and intuition "created" the book from prologue - epilogue.  If someone wanna get even more pumped up(who knows it can all be true, or none of it)

The spoilers are minor and clearly denoted for easy skippage, if you want to read any of it....

Yeah, the spoilers say very little, and mostly just tell you who the main plotlines will be about in this book. They don't tell you anything important. Even the little they have is very clearly marked.

I still want to go into it neutral.  I don't want to think to much into the reviews and prepare myself to be excited or disappointed.  Writing is a work of art and it's impressions will always be different to different people. 

I might have to see if I have the willpower to withstand reading the forums before hand.

I read the review and found it INCREDIBLY exciting. That being said the "spoilers" didn't really give anything away. In my case it won't matter anyway since I'll have forgotten reading it by the time the book is released. I'm beginning to see the positive side to getting old. As far as I know, I have never seen the same movie twice!!   ;)
