Hey there! Thanks so much for the wonderful review for Under the Magnolia. :D I'm so glad you enjoyed it! And Cry Sanctuary as well! We finally finished revisions on the sequel last night so I'm breathing a big huge sigh of relief right about now. LOL
Sorry I am late responding...we all had the stomach flu, YUCK! Sherrilyn Kenyon, Micheal Stackpole and Jim Butcher leap to mind. Ms. Kenyon can world story arc like no one I have ever read, Micheal Stackpole writes intrigue, especially political intrigue intricate enough to have you guessing and gasping and NEVER sure of who is one who's side until he reveals it, and Jim Butcher makes even secondary characters vibrant and interesting!
Quests are still awesome in Northrend! Amusing too! Gotta love Blizzard's bizarre sense of humor! The novels and mangas are great, but the the lore is so rich and interesting! Sometimes I wonder what it would be like if some of my fav authors could write a storyline/quest chain, though. Richard Knaak does most of the novel/manga writing. He has been writing fantasy stuff for years, started at TSR forever ago. Whoops...my old geek is coming out! lol!
Much less bugs now, yes, and thank goodness!!!
lol!! LOVED your story of learning to play a priest! Hrm...are you sure you aren't in our Horde guild? lol I already leveled a Deathknight to 60. Wasn't thrilled. Oh yeah they are plenty uber, but way too similar to my paladin to suit me. I mean if I want to hit stuff I will play her so I can heal my butt (or the butthead next to me, lol) if I need to...AND she's cuter. I LUBB her new pigtails! hehe
The Deathknight lore was pretty cool, and how they ended up escaping Arthas' control and all, and very visually attractive as well. If you get a chance to watch any of that, do! =)
We are Horde, and my two main characters are my priest and my shaman. For a long time I hated my priest but we needed a healer in our tiny guild, so...lol I am really enjoying my shaman though! =)
Same questions, back at you!
