BTW ...

Got sidetracked last night (blames the newest Ménage à 3 book) and forgot to mention that I DID finish "Tracker" late Tuesday night. Just barely in time to not qualify as being Wednesday morning but that's still far later than a person whose workday starts at 7:30 a.m. should have been up, however there comes a point in any good tale at which there's no way in hell one is putting the book down until one has reached the end (and anyway, even if I had made myself stop I would have just been lying there awake wondering what was going to happen next so attempting that self-discipline nonsense would have accomplished nothing)

Was oh-so-GOOD!!! As always. Though the evil Cherryh ended with the characters having done stuff with potential big political and social ramifications and is making us wait until next year's book to see what the fallout will be. Entire book spans just under a week in character realtime. But our beloved atevi and human associates can pack a awful lot of mayhem into a few days. Some new Guild characters that are intriguing (as in could that one be Jago's mother???!!! intriguing). Bren speculating a bit on just what/who Algini is/was within the Guild again. Banichi in rehab/physio and annoyed by everybody being very obvious about not letting him do stuff he's not supposed to do. Tackling space station/Reunioner issues. And guess who's invited themselves to tea?

Elsewhere on the fan side, folks have been hinting that a story about how Ilisidi and Cenedi met would be interesting. And Cherryh has admitted being intrigued by that one so with luck she may be publishing a new backstory online this year. :-)

How long until next April ...?
