Re: The Hero and the Crown * Part 1 - Chapters 7 - 11

In this part of the book, the 2nd of 4 quarters, I learned a lot more about Aerin. Why she is the way she is, and the choices she has made -- which ends up in her being the way she is. So many choices, all building on each other. Going backwards and forwards in time actually works as a writing devic...

Fish, sign, tower

The people who fled the town had put up a sign (miles from the town) saying 'beware of fish'. There were numerous other warnings including one pasted on a huge tower. If the traveler continued to ignore the signs, and entered the town, he was eaten … by the fish.

Re: The Hero and the Crown * Part 1 - Chapters 1 - 6

I'd forgotten how much I enjoy this book until I read the first chapters again. Aerin is just gritty. I have so much admiration for her as she deals with the 'hand' she has been dealt by life. She doesn't look like anyone else in the city and, being of pale skin and fiery red hair, she sort of stick...
