No, you can't.  He's one of my favorite characters.  :D

Oreg is very cool. I love his mischievousness.  Although, Pansy is probably a close second. :D

I want to see what she does with him, I guess.  I like Pansy. :D  That horse has a lot of personality. :D

He does, I loved the deliberate way Ward changed his name from the deadly & disturbing Stygian to the innocuous Pansy, maintaining him as a war horse, and yet making him safer to be around.  It's just so evocative of most things involving humans, how we have the inbuilt contradictions.
Another war horse with a lot of personality is Faran, from the Sparhawk books by David & Leigh Eddings.  That big ole roan just gets so ornery, and yet he would probably walk through fire for Sparhawk.

I have to admit, the way the horses had personalities too made me enjoy the books even more.

You all had an interesting topic going about Shavigmen swordmanship. I've split it from the general discussion and moved it into the Hurog Series discussion. :)

gallandro and Patti, I just split the Dragon Blood conversation into a new topic and moved it over to the DB forum. :)

The discussion had evolved into a discussion of the chat and the book club so I split the posts and moved them into teh Book club thread.

Dragon Bones was the first of Briggs' books that I read.  I found it browsing through the sf/fantasy section of my favorite bookstore.  I read the first two chapters in the store and was hooked.  After reading it I immediately set out to find every single book that she had written (still disappointed that I can't get my hands on Masques).

Oreg is probably my single favorite character in any book that she has written.  He is awesome.

Have you seen the 'borrow a copy of Masques' thread yet, AEH?  It's hanging out with the contests, more or less, as I recall.

I haven't read the thread, I saw it at a glance.  I am often rather loathe to borrow books from people that I don't know though.  And I think that I can wait for there to be an edited version out (and until then keep checking used bookstores, not that it is likely to show up).  I am a broke college student, so I would worry that something would happen to someone else's copy.
