A book has made me "squee"...

And it wasn't even a Koontz novel!

The Curse of Chalion by Lois McMaster Bujold -- it was the first book in a long time that I really really really wanted to get to the end to, and at the same time really really really didn't want to end. It has some of the same elements as my other fantasy fave, the Kushiel series by Jacqueline Carey, with manipulative gods and dark politics and other trappings of royal intregue, but it's not as dark or as graphic, which makes it a more pleasing - if slightly less moving - read.

I'm reading the next book in the series now, Paladin of Souls, and I'm a little bummed because it focuses on one of the more peripheral characters from Chalion, rather than the same main characters that I got so attached to. But it won a Hugo award, so it must be good, right? ;)

Speaking of Jacqueline, she says on her website: "I've had a lot of requests to post a synopsis of next year's forthcoming Kushiel's Scion. Next month, maybe! I'll try to put something together to whet your appetites." *wibbles* Oh, come on, woman -- like we're not already... whetted.

I had bizarre dreams last night that seemed to be a mixture of Harry Potter, Atlantis and my own boring life. I blame the chocolate muffin I ate before bed. I swear, Otis puts something in those things.
