Justice Served!

It's here! Kushiel's Justice is mine!

I may not be around until I'm done reading it, which should hopefully be in a few days.

It's already spectacular!



WOO HOO! Imri wants to visit every house of the Night Court before he weds, so we are getting to see more aspects of that! I'm so excited.

Sidonie has her priestess's daughter (Liz, that should so be like Marianne & Maya...) but rumor has it that Amarante took her to the Night Court - Jasmine House.

I've already seen an Alyssum assignation. Interesting, but not quite what I expected. I think it depends on the adept. I already knew it wasn't really my bag.

A taste:

"...Mignon, this is a game, is it not?"

"Would you have it be so?" She did lookat me then, her eyes full of soft wonder. "No, my lord. There are those among us whop believe that Naamah trembled at what she did when first she lay with a mortal man--at the audacity of it, at the shame of it, at the glory of it."

"Shame," I murmured, sitting on the edge of my bed.

"Shame is a spice, my lord," Mignon said softly. "Why have you come here if you do not understand this?"

"Because," I said, "Allysum starts with an 'A'."

Nice to know someone else is enjoying it as much as I am. :-)

oh, zomg. I always wanted to learn about all the hosues. that sounds awesome.

....I just started reading Scion though. >.>

Is Phedre in the books, or not so much?

and I had to put Scion down to read the Black Jewels Trilogy.

Erg. Well, we did NOT learn about all the houses, for which I'm bummed. She better fulfill that promise in the next book...

Phedre makes more of an appearance in this one than she did in Scion. Still, I get the feeling that we're not supposed to see too much of her in Imri's stories.

I'm not familiar with the Black Jewels Trilogy. I was trying to finish my EC re-read, but nothing could keep me from Justice once it turned up in my mail box. SO worth it!

lol You know that's not what I meant. Although she'd be exceptional at it, and it may finally get her some attention from the peerage...

All this talk is making me want to catch up in the Kushiel series. I have a lot of reading ahead of me. :)

I checked my online library to see if I could order Chosen in. Unfortunately the only one I saw was Scion. I think I will just break down and buy it. I was being really good with my money, but a book was bound to be my breaking point anyway. It might as well be that one. :)

It's a good splurge, though. The paperback shouldn't be too much. I found mine at a used book store for about $2.50. I keep mixing up which books you do and don't have. I thought you didn't have Avatar.
