I like it very much my own self. I was sick for most of January and
felt the need
to read it twice.
I don't think that going out with Con at night counts as 'jumping'. I,
like to know more about Mel, but I wouldn't count on a sequel. Books
seem to work that way for Ms. McKinley. Back in the dark ages when she
wrote Blue Sword and Hero and Crown, they were supposed to be part of
a trilogy, but the third book didn't gel.

might change my mind, but I'm not willing to do it. [I don't mind being
preached to on the subject of the inequality of the sexes. _Six Moon
is my favorite so far.]
