The Serpent's Shadow, by Mercedes Lackey

It is rare for me to have synchronicity between my reading and "real" life; the friend who loaned me this book has gone into labor with her little girl the same night I finished reading it. Nothing to do with the story itself, but odd that I'd pick this one up now (instead of waiting until we were recovering from the drive to Oma's on Sunday). I should have finished my audiobook first, so that I could start another for review (I believe that Good Kids, Bad Habits absolutely has to be next). I hate having so many going at once--I feel as though I don't truly make good progress on them if I can only nibble at them.

Anyhow, I must get some sleep before I can give this the writeup it deserves. I will probably add this to the list of titles I'm reading for the Once Upon a Time Challenge.

I really need to read this series. I own most of the books, just haven't sat down and read them. Lackey is a great author. I haven't been brave enough to read her long series, but I have been reading her Five Hundred Kingdom series (which is up to book 3), which are very enjoyable reads!

This is third one of this series that I've read. I still need to go back and write up the other 2 (Fire Rose and Gates of Sleep). I have Black Swan in the queue, but it will have to wait until I get the rest of the challenge books read and reviewed.

OMG--there's more 500 Kingdoms books?! I've read the first, and I guess I should add the review here soon. Well, I'm off to my Amazon wishlist to add some wonderfulness. Thanks for the tip!
