This is a continuation of Live-Read-Blog: The Other Lands – Book Two, On Love and Dragons.
Currently I’m finished. And I need the third book right now. Argh, another year!
It was a great read.
Damn it, another year….

Song of Souls
You know, it’s hard to blame Rialus for being a snake. More of a weasel.
The chapters involving Ushen Brae are slower than the rest at this point, but they need to be, and besides, they answer an awful lot of questions. Poor Mór.
Oh gods, Corinn. This so isn’t going to end well.
… Benabe is going to kill everybody in that questing party, isn’t she.
Devoth Lvin, mighty of the Auldek, friend of hummingbirds.
You know, I haven’t been bored by any of the plot threads so far. Not quite like A Feast for Crows, where Brienne’s sections eventually annoyed me all to heck.
I’ve also been thinking about all the slavery of Africans in history, and how badly it affected Africa’s stance in the world even now, through stealing genrations upon generations of talent and potential talent. And thinking about Acacia’s quota, and how that might also have affected their progress—though they seem fine progress-wise, even if it’s all pretty medieval (or not? Dunno).
I think Melio is going to bite it, because the royal children don’t get nice things. Although he’s being a bit of an ass anyways.
…. oh boy.
So, who’s going to win? Corinn’s paranoia or her feelings of sisterhood?
Right, who was I kidding. Delivegu’s lying ways are going to get Mena in serious hot water (fortunately Wren has apparently been forgotten. Or not). I hope the next time he shows up Corinn is gutting him.
The emotional tide of the story is turning. And Dariel is now being silly in the right way. Although I had a hard time believing that he would act so haughty so long. It isn’t like him.
I’d forgotten that the Meinish ancestors are also no more.
Corinn chapters always leave me so conflicted. It’s nice for a change.
I wish Mena would stop trusting her sister. Well, she doesn’t always, but now is not the time.
Entire League Council: blah blah posturing blah blah bitch won’t know what’s coming blah blah asking for it blah blah
Lethel: I will totally not fail you all just like my cousin did!
Fun chapter, though, and I do give them good odds for surviving and successfully playing all sides. They are rather good at that, except when they get full of themselves.
The Known World is so screwed.
This chapter is so beautiful that I forgive the Known World being screwed.
Well, at least Corinn, smart girl, knows that she’s caused trouble and that she can’t see her way out of it—perhaps not alone.
And many things are now up in the air. Argh. In a good way.
