I haven't posted here for aaaaaaaaaages...
I haven't heard of it! Is it a sequel? What is it about?! Light, tell me!
I might have to :0
*goes on amazon*
Have you read any of Tad William's books? I read them when I was..14 or something? I still remember them being ruddy awesome! I might have to revisit them again...Here's an excerpt I've had since I read it:
'Camaris still stood as if frozen, his fingers splayed atop Deornoth's cairn. At last he turned and looked down at himself, then slowly raised the horn and stared at it for a long time, as though it were something never before seen on the green earth. He closed his eyes, lifted it carefully to his lips with shaking hand, and blew.
The horn sounded. It's first thin note grew and strengthened, becoming louder and louder until it seemed to shake the very air, a shout that seemed to have the clash of steel and the thunder of hooves in it. Camaris, his eyes squeezed shut, sucked in a deep breath and blew again, louder this time. The piercing call winded out across the hillside and reverberated in the valley; the echoes chased themselves through the air. Then the noise died away.
Simon discovered he had his hands over his ears. Many others in the company had done the same.
Camaris was staring at the horn again. He lifted up his face to those who watched him. Something had changed. His eyes had become deeper somewhow, sadder: there was a glint of awareness that had not been there before. His mouth worked striving for speech, but no sound came out except a rasping hiss. Camaris looked down at the hilt of Thorn. With slow and deliberate movements, he drew it from the scabbard and held it up before him, a line of glinting black that seemed to slice right through the light of the failing afternoon. Tiny drops of misty rain gathered on the blade.
"I...should have known...that my...torment was not yet finished...my guilt not forgiven." His voice was painfully dry and rough,his speech strangely formal. "Oh, my God, my loving and terrible God. I am humble before You. I shall serve out my punishment."
The old man fell to his knees before the astonished company. For a long time, he said nothing, but seemed to be praying. Tears ran down his cheeks, merging with the raindrops to make his face shine in the slanthing sunlight. Finally, Camaris clambered to his feet and allowed Isgrimnur and Josua to lead him away.'
Haha yeah! It did go into detail. Although, the Wheel of Time is pretty descriptive too. But then again, in Otherland you've got some wierd company trying to take over the world through a virtual reality.
Whereas in the Wheel of Time you've got...Lan.
Lan is so cool...
I'm reading The Shadow Rising, which I missed out last time I read through the series! It all makes sense now...
Haha, didn't it make sense the first time?
Hah, welcome. What books are you into?
