AGH!!! Oh. Em. Gee. I'm kind of a little dizzy...I just read about 400 pages in something like 24 hours so...whoa. I've adored every single Eli book so far, but this one was just mind-blowing. And even better? Somehow it made all the earlier novels even more amazing, too, even though I didn't think that was possible. Everything just builds and builds and details that appeared early in the series suddenly made all the difference in the world. This is masterful storytelling.
And the ending. Oh... I'm not going to be able to wait for Spirit's End. I have to know what's going to happen...like...now!!!And Mellinor!!! NOOOOO!!! Tell me it isn't so! And ELI!!!! NOOOOO!!!!!
I kind of really want to go back and read all of the Eli books straight through again. And maybe I'll write up something resembling an actual review sometime soon. Not just yet though. ;)
