The Melting Pot

For those like me who love the Tairen Soul series, the release date for Queen of Song and Soul has been pushed back. Instead of the anticipated January release, the book won't be coming out until June. *tears*

In unrelated news: Though it may seem like I have disappeared, I'm still around. Just reading and reading some more right now. I've become engulfed in The Bright of the Sky, a SF that reads like a cross between Fantasy and SF. I am loving this book so much. I'm also reading When Twilight Burns, the fourth book in the Gardella Vampire Chronicle's. So far so good, but I just know that the love triangle will end badly for me. My sister was happy with the ending so I know that I will not be. :(

Now a meme: I was recently tagged by Jace to do this meme.

Since I'm late to the party and I'm sure everyone has done this I won't tag anyone. But feel free to play along!!


  1. LOL, I'm not doing the tag because I don't think I've read any of the books, LOL :)

    I miss you!! What have you been up to besides reading? Also, is When Twilight Burns the last of the series?

  2. Hi Nath! Well, besides reading, I've been having a good time watching the Olympics. Who knew there were so any Olympic sports? Long distance walking?? I've also been spending a lot of time with my family. That's about it. :p

    There is one last book to be released in the Gardella Series (next year), and then it ends.

    What have you been up to?

  3. Hi, Brie!

    I haven't read the Tairen Soul series, is it good?

  4. Hi Wendy! I really love the series. It's equal parts romance and fantasy, with excellent writing and great characters. If you like magical elements and fantasy then I would recommend that you give the first book, Lord of the Fading Lands, a try.

  5. It sounds really good and I added the book to my Must Have list.

    Man, that list is getting long! lol.

  6. Thanks for playing. :-) You've watched more movies (on that list) than me ... it seems everybody had. LOL

  7. WHAT?????? Noooooooo. I can't believe this. : (

  8. oh, no, i had not heard that yet, that totally stinks!!

    Oh, well, what can you do. It gives me an excuse to re-read them before the next ones come out :)

  9. I feel like I'm the last person on earth to get to read CL WILSON book 3 early. grumble. I completely agree with you about love triangles. I can't stand it when one person ends up lonely. :( At least Jacob found "true love" (ahem) at the end of the Twilight Saga... as squicky as imprinting is. Ha. I've got Guardella book for but not the first three. I'm going to wait to read them in order.

  10. Rereading is never a bad thing, Kris. I went back and refreshed myself before starting book 3.

    Ciara- I haven't gotten far into King yet, but from what I've read so far, it's worth the wait. You will love it when you do get your hands on it.

    I haven't read the Twilight books. Not sure if I ever will. And the Gardella series is pretty good. You should definitely read them in order though. But beware, there is a love triangle in that series.
