Friday so far

I stayed up all night reading Lover at Last.  Mom tried to wake me to get me to go to the Good Friday services at noon, but I went back to sleep.  I got up at 1:30 p.m.  S.D. was vacuuming.  Mom and I went to the grocery store around 3:30.

We're supposed to go down to Baltimore tomorrow to visit with J. and K.  It will be nice to see them.

As for Lover at Last, I enjoyed it more than some of the other books in the series.  Dear Author gave it a C-.  I'd rank it higher than that.

(*various spoilers*)

I didn't particularly care about Assail and Sola, and I was concerned that Sola got turned on when Assail threatened her.  Assail is not only a drug dealer, but working with Lessers now.  I don't know how Xcor is going to redeem himself.  Layla is aware he's a traitor.  I'd forgotten that Payne had healing powers.  I like the Shadows.  I would be okay with a Trez and Selena story.  It would mean the explanation of another society yet, but I think I could deal.

I enjoyed Qhuinn and Blay's story.  Towards the end of the book I started skimming over the scenes that had Assail, Sola, Xcor and Layla's viewpoints so I could see what happened with Qhuinn and Blay.  It was about 4:00 a.m. by then.  I re-read the last fifty pages or so sitting under the lamp today.  If you look very carefully at the cover, you can see that the vampire pictured has one green eye and one blue one, so it had to be Qhuinn.  I think Blay will probably become a Brother sooner or later.

I'd give it a B for Qhuinn and Blay's part, and a "don't care" for the other parts.  John Matthew and Qhuinn and Blay saved Phury's book, Lover Enshrined, from being a total waste.  I would have liked more of John Matthew in Lover at Last, as it was the three of them that were such great friends.  I was surprised that John Matthew wasn't officially a Brother yet.  He even has a name, Tehrror.  I had liked Blay all through the books he was in.
