It's what we do, and it works for us. Tired of feeling overwhelmed, we recently "faithsized" our family into a square foot lake cabin in need of renovation. I write at HeatherSanders. This sounds like a great series!
I am currently reading the Outlander series NOT for kids, aka it has vivid sex scenes between a married couple , which is based on a young woman who travels in time from back to I love it because it has an element of sci-fi with the time travel, but it also incorporates true historical data about the midth century. Thank you for your recommedation! Have a wonderful day! I really enjoyed all of Mr. I agree with Dawn F. The Outlander series is great! I Love, love, love the Wrinkle in Time series.
I love all the people in the Murray family. I still talk about kitheing sp when someone else and I have the same thought at the same time. I loved everything by Tamora Pierce, especially her Dealing with Dragons series. Octavia Butler has a fantastic sci fi series where aliens come to earth, heal the dying planet and humans, and interbreed with humans to gain our genetic ability to regenerate cancer. There are so many good series, but I need to read to my 5 and 3 year olds because my coffee time is up. Thanks for the book-share! This sounds like a great book, based on your review.
Love this series by Robert Jordan and Brandon Sanderson. I just finished reading the entire series for the second time. The Discworld Series for you and your hubby. I agree with PP about the wheel of time. The First Adventure, and continues with other books through this wonderfully magical world, any age could read this series. They would be better for adults and older teens as there is some sexual content. This is probably my favorite series of all time. I started reading it when I was 13 twenty years ago!!
It will be bittersweet to get to the end when the last book comes out this spring. Just an FYI though: I would put this series in the older-young-adult category for that reason. The first few books are very tame compared to what comes later. Having said that, I reread the entire series over each time a new book comes out.
Brian Sanderson has done a great job of staying faithful to the writing style of Robert Jordan, though I had my guesses which sections of the last book he wrote. I love to hear that others enjoy the Wheel of Time series. I have turned my sister onto them and she loves them too. Many authors have joined in to write about the world of Krynn There is a base trilogy that is great and it starts with Dragons of Autumn Twilight.

They also find Padan Fain , a peddler who was presumed dead after the Trolloc attack on Emond's Field. Also in Baerlon, Rand and his two friends begin experiencing dreams in which they are taunted by an arrogant man who calls himself Ba'alzamon. Shortly before they depart, Nynaeve al'Meara , the village wisdom of Emond's Field, arrives to retrieve the four villagers. When Rand and his friends refuse to return with her, Nynaeve joins them to ensure their continued safety.
Pursued by ever-increasing numbers of Trollocs and Myrddraal, the travellers are forced to take refuge in the ancient, abandoned, and deadly city of Shadar Logoth , a place even Myrddraal are reluctant to enter. He first offers them riches in exchange for a small favor, then attempts to kill them when he learns that their companions include an Aes Sedai and that their eventual destination is Tar Valon , the home city of the Aes Sedai order.
The three barely escape, and only reach their companions just before nightfall. Myrddraal and Trollocs enter Shadar Logoth during the night, forcing the eight companions from their warded quarters. As they try to avoid the search and leave the city, Mashadar , the evil of Shadar Logoth made manifest, separates them from each other.
The captain, Bayle Domon , reluctantly grants them passage to Whitebridge. During the journey downriver, Ba'alzamon continues to haunt Rand's and Mat's dreams, and Mat becomes strangely reclusive and suspicious of strangers. Rand discovers that Mat has kept a ruby-hilted dagger from Shadar Logoth despite Moiraine's earlier warning, but fails to connect this new acquisition to Mat's changed behavior. In Whitebridge, the trio are confronted by a Myrddraal in a crowded square. Thom apparently sacrifices himself to buy Rand and Mat time to escape, and the two continue alone on the road toward Caemlyn , earning meals and lodging along the way by playing Thom's flute and juggling.
As they near Caemlyn, however, they begin to encounter darkfriends in nearly every town who seem to be able to recognize them by sight, and Mat's paranoid behavior becomes more debilitating. Once in Caemlyn, Mat confines himself to his bed and seeks to avoid all contact with outsiders while Rand makes the acquaintance of an Ogier named Loial and embarks on an unlikely adventure.
Logain Ablar , a recently-captured False Dragon , is being paraded through the streets of Caemlyn.

While seeking to catch a glimpse of him, Rand climbs a wall and accidentally falls over the top into the palace garden, where he meets Elayne Trakand , heir-apparent to the throne of Andor, her brother Gawyn , and her half-brother Galad Damodred. When Rand's presence is discovered by the palace guards with Galad's help, he is taken into custody despite Elayne's protests and brought before Queen Morgase and her Aes Sedai advisor, Elaida.
Elaida prophetically identifies Rand as a dangerous individual, but Queen Morgase decides that she does not have sufficient evidence to imprison him. Meanwhile, Egwene and Perrin plan a route that should take them from Shadar Logoth almost directly toward Caemlyn.
Elyas tells Perrin that he, too can communicate with wolves, but Perrin shows little interest in that possibility. They travel for a few days with the Tuatha'an , a nomadic, pacifistic people, before striking out on their own when the wolves witness one of Perrin's dreams featuring Ba'alzamon.
After fleeing from massive swarms of ravens and crows sent to mark their movements and kill them, they run afoul of a legion of Children of the Light commanded by Geofram Bornhald , father of the officer encountered in Baerlon. After witnessing the death of a wolf at the hands of a Whitecloak, Perrin, whose talent has developed despite his efforts, goes temporarily insane and kills two of them. Elyas escapes, but the Children of the Light hold Perrin and Egwene prisoner, planning to execute at least Perrin as soon as they reach Amador. Moiraine, Lan, and Nynaeve rescue Egwene and Perrin from the Whitecloaks just as one overzealous individual is contemplating their premature execution.
Together they travel to Caemlyn, where they are reunited with Mat and Rand, who has only just returned from his adventure at the castle. Moiraine immediately diagnoses Mat's "sickness" as the corrupting influence of the ruby-hilted dagger, and she uses her powers to diminish its effects, although she cannot heal him completely or break his attachment to it.
Loial warns Moiraine of a threat to the Eye of the World, a threat independently corroborated by a story heard by Perrin and Egwene while among the Tuatha'an and by the dreams of Rand, Mat, and Perrin. Moiraine decides that in order to reach the Eye of the World in time to stop the Dark One, they must take the Ways. The group is guided along the dangerous Ways by Loial and emerge in Shienar , where they meet Lord Agelmar Jagad and Ingtar Shinowa in the fortress of Fal Dara , on the eve of an expected battle against a Trolloc army.
Padan Fain is found climbing the walls of Fal Dara.
