Yes, it is!


Me either (I have the original mass market release). I thought they might have updated the ebook (assuming you're reading the ebook) since the hardback rerelease.

Great! I will also start it today. :)

Have you suspected Devin? Toward the end, I started to suspect him. A pity that the one who tried to kill her was the one she fully trusted. His actions didn't make sense. He tried to have her killed her several times, and in the next breath saved her (because he needed her). He should not have tried that hard to have her killed before he got what he wanted. It would have saved him time and efforts... I guess he never really overcome the fact she left him and probably loved her in his way. Well, the sane part of his loved her, anyway.

I also started to love Tybalt and his character as the Kings of Cats, though I am more of a dog person.

I have read a couples of chapters, and so far so good! I like that she still has Spike, the rose goblin.

I was surprised by the friendship between Tobi and the Luidaeg, but I sure liked that! I also like the the dynamic between Tobi and Tybalt.

Btw, @Gravy have you read Middlegame? It is also on my reading list.

I can't remember if I suspected him when I first read it.

I've read a handful of chapters. Don't worry about posting spoilers.
I love Spike. I also love The Luidaeg. I like the weird characters. :lol:



I have read Middlegame. It's...epic. I have been meaning to read it over again (ever since I finished it), as it's not easily taken in with one reading. I feel like I missed a lot.

I love those characters too!

If you want to re-read Middlegame later, I am game. :)

What do you think about Alex (the computer programmer)? How could Tobi fall for him when she has Tybalt??

The idea of a Dryad (April) inside a PC is cool!

Gravy, were are you in the book? I am about to start chapter ten. The murders add some spice to the tale! It is refreshing that no one tries to kill Tobi (so far)!

April is awesome. I love the twist of a, basically, cyberpunk dryad!


I was thrown by that too. I don't remember this book as well as I did the first one.
It's slowly coming back to me.


I'm currently still in the hotel room (after Alex showed up with breakfast.

I am in the middle of chapter 11 (hey, look, I'm (mostly) keeping up!).

April just beckoned us for January.
I can't get over her turning to Tybalt. Again.

I mean, I get it, but it's still entertaining. :lol:

Lol, indeed!

I spoke too soon! Tobi is in danger too.

I wonder who the murderer is. Whom do you suspect?
