Thanks gals for posting ur reviews and other ppl's reviews so we can get more glimpse of the KoS....

I can't wait for the others to post their reviews who won the ARC from Nalini's website and GoodRead (which unfortunately both I lost...sigh...just not my year)

Sneaky of you gals to ask each other question/comment in German....man I wish i can read german....LoL

LOL! It's not my year either, so I feel your pain Silver. But at least it's only two more months....Nevertheless two LONG months....But at least it's not like another year or so. ;-) And I'm pretty sure the German stuff wasn't anything too spoilerish. I think they were writing in English for all the stuff we wanted to know. Smile

Don't worry, Patricia was just asking if she could use my review in case she was setting a homepage. I agreed. So nothing too spoilery here. It wouldn't be very wise to discuss spoilery stuff in German since there are some German-speaking users in this forum.

I'll search for a suitable quote to post later that day.

Serena, yes, that's exactly what I wrote earlier! I mean the whole: There was not enough time etc. The thing is, I'm wondering what would've been changed if .. Or more like: HOW would've written it. Well, makes no sense contemplating about that.

Hee, no I do not post spoiler-stuff in German! xD But I might just do so to force all of you into learning German! Very Happy:D:D Ha.. Yay, that's a fab idea.

Ok, I saw that there were no quotes posted concerning Walker and Lara so I searched for one

Spoiler:

"Did you hear", he asked, because Lara was the one person with whom he always found words,"that Marlee joined the children's choir?"
[...]
A genuine smile broke through the shadows on Lara's face. "I heard Ben and her practicing. She's got a beautiful voice."
So, Walker thought, did Lara.

Hehe... Patricias and Serenas German classes... Kiss of Snow would be a good bribe for sure Very Happy

Thank you Serena!!!! =) HAHA, on German classes! Yeah, that would be a good bribe! I'd be going to one of those "translate from German to English" sites. ;-)

Did anyone read Nalini's snippet....
she made me swoon reading her except....

the fight btw S and H with Judd not getting in btw them

I love when H took away her ipod and not let her ignore him....That's make me laugh....!

What is S referring to when she told H it's none of his business?

any hint? if not welling to spoiling...its ok ... we discuss our feeling about it

PS: Nalini is posting another ARC in April so stay tune

I would change the sentences SO bad that NO translation-site would work! :p

Like.. "Ich mag dich." (I like you) into "Ich muss zugeben, dass mir deine Anwesenheit zusagt." Though that's still too easy.. Huh, I might come up with some stuff. ;P

Ah this is exactly the scene where we find out about her stupid taste in music xDD It's so awfull.. brrr!

Something else I have to say: Borders, B&N etc. won't deliver any ebooks! Because I'm from freaking Germany! I HATE IT!!!! >___< Kay.. so I'm going to live in the USA soon. Just decided. I mean, I have no job or anything.. I could trade my ARC.. but no. It's too important. What else do I have?.. Is it true that its illegal to be an escort in the USA? oô

Hehe...cheeky Patricia Very Happy

I know that probably won't make you feel better, but living in Germany is far better than living in Austria. I once tried to order from a german amazon marketplace seller, but almost none of them deliver to freaking Austria, even if shares a border with Germany! Sometimes it's really hard to live in a small country.

Du Arme!

Gosh, that has to suck. Wanna live somewhere else, though. I mean, come on, ebooks? They can't deliver some friggin EBOOKS? How stupid is that? It's not like they can't deliver normal, printed books. So what? Europe isn't allowed to get some fuckin .epub files? GRRR!!

But isn't it a nice thought that so many different people from different countries, even different continents who may never meet in person come together to discuss the same books?
It sometimes astounds me what internet can do.

@Bella "Oh-my-Hawke" I like that Very Happy Ok, you win. Snowing in almost april sucks (I'm more the spring type) I already sat on my balcony and planted some herbs. But Norway is so beautiful! I once visited Oslo (in June) it was wonderful, I really liked it.

It's really hard to understand why they don't deliver e-books to Germany. Maybe its the stupid german/austrian/whatever copyright law? I know some mostly american enterprises don't bother to make their service available in Europe because of the many different copyright laws. A european copyright law seems to be eons away.

Serena and silverdezz: Thought the same. One of you ever in Germany - Call me! :]

I wanted to get J.R. Wards new book. A friend of mine bought it for me (YAY!) It's probably and in a twisted way illegal, but come on, I payed for it, so what? >_<

Btw, I finally read Bonds of Justice. Never dared to do so because it's triggerish, but hell, I am falling for Kaleb oô. Oh and: I think we need an Off-Topic-Post-thingie. xDD

Patricia, an Off-Topic topic would be a great idea!
I'm thinking of visiting Berlin in summer, so maybe... Very Happy

You haven't read Bonds of Justice yet? I really liked it, it's one of my favourite books in the series (#1 is CbI so far)

I just read it. Agree with you! CbI and BoJ.. well, actually, as I stated before, I can't really decide. xD Whatever.

Oh, really? Yes, that'd be great. Smile I mean.. you know that bookstore in Berlin Kudamm/Ecke Wilmerstdorfer? (At least I think it was there.. The Gedächtniskirche (Gosh, that sounds so stupid. Mixing German and English like that.. Ha) was about a few streets away.) However it is like.. Dunno, I loved it. Felt like hoooome. And that coffee.. yum. x)

It's hard to rank them, isn't it Very Happy
I like all of them very much, some a little bit more than others. I really wonder which book comes next...after Kiss of Snow I mean. Who would you like to see opening the second arc?

Wrote my answer concering Berlin in the off-topic topic. funny word.

Huh, I think it's hard to rank them, because they're.. similiar. Wrote something about that somewhere else.. NS's world-building is fantastic, her characters are wonderfull.. BUT they're alike in too many ways. Their personalities might be different in SOME ways but when it comes down to it, they're mostly the same. I liked that safety (knowing there's always a absolute HEA, knowing the male is protective (I hated the possessive part, though) and all this), I love them. But I just need something new. And because thr books are so alike (even when they're not.. if you know what I mean, because I can't really articulate it) it's really hard to say which book is better.

Maybe thats one of the reasons why most people like CbI the best. It stands out by having a Psy hero and a changeling heroine. Blaze of Memory and Bonds of Justice are standing out too, but there are no changelings in the pairing.
