Me too! I haven't seen anyone mention Dragon Reserve, World 8 here. (I got
turned off from it for awhile because it sounds like Dragonball Z :s ) and
Hexwood and DS seem similiar n nature, but not DRW8...although it could be
from the same world system. But I think DS Hexwood, F&H, and SWM and Witch
week, for that matter, have more in common as world systems (I, for one, am
very fond of SWM). They all have the world without overt Magic, magic is a
secret, but people practice it covertly quite often.
I had a grand conspiracy theory that connected all of the DWJ books, before
CofD came out, and CofD was exactly what I'd been expecting, so I wrote a
letter to her asking. She was very cold, in a polite way, but then we were
just kids, too.
I found Everard's Ride to be slow, but worth it...but I've never reread it.
Has anyone here read Yes, Dear? It took me ages to find a copy to read, but
It seemed to be pretty standard boilr plate. I was dissapointed.
