Finished ...

... reading "Pale Guardian" shortly before 2:00 a.m. I'd had a sort of vague notion of stopping halfway and finishing it in the morning after a night's sleep, but you know how it is ... action and plot start accelerating and there's no way in hell one can put the book down at that point. And if one did force oneself then one would simply lie awake wondering what was going to happen next so really, what's the point in such futile self-discipline? That trick only works with slow-moving or boring books. Or anthologies where stopping between stories at least gives an acceptable, suspense-free break-off point.

All that to say it was really REALLY good. Setting was the front lines in Flanders in early spring of 1915, between Vimy and Ypres. Quite weirdly, in the nightmare of the Western Front, it may possibly be becoming a trendy must-do among Europe's vampires to have met Lydia Asher in person. And, weirder still, is Lionel Grippen propositioning James Asher ...**

Needless to say, I'm already more than impatient for the next volume.

**Admit it, your little brains went straight off to SlashLand when you read that, didn't they? So so predictable. Yes, Asher IS Grippen's type, but not in the way you were thinking ***EVIL GRIN***
