I love the Psy/Changling books and I am halfway through Angel's Blood. Is it just me or do the angels reminded anyone else of the Goa'ulds in the Stargate series?

 :o huh?

LOL

It's the whole long life, looking down on humans to control and use. Their attitude is what reminds me of them. How they become less compassionate, more cold as they live longer. LOL. It was what I was thinking when I was reading the book. Good book!

Dont forget the glowing eyes - campy taste in clothes and the possessed voice thingy :D

But I agree with you about the lack of empathy and coldness thing - but I suppose if you are a long lived being and powerful I suppose they would appear and become that way. Its like Doctor Manhanttan in the Watchmen graphic novel- he definitely morphed into that even though he is naked and BLUE ;D

THAT reminds me of the movie. nekkid blue man. ALL. THE. TIME. *shakes head* not my cup of tea.

But I think you're right on the lack of empathy thing. if you're so removed from the realm of humanity, why show compassion and care? the humans will just die anyway before you even really notice.

I know about that short story. can't wait. i know it must seem as if I'm only obsessing about ilona andrews' story right now, but i'm able to multi-obsess ;)

and the blue guy was very strange. i kept thinking of a smurf on steroids. *shakes head*

I'm straying off topic here  :o , but, when I see big blue man, I think Barinthus from the Merry Gentry books by LKH. :D I haven't seen or read the Watchmen so my reference point is different. :D

Okay, I see that some. I think the same can be said of any long-lived race we see in books. 'Been there, done that, don't care much anymore' attitude.

Hit two different bookstores today -- three, if you count Target -- looking for a copy of BRANDED BY FIRE.  Official release date is tomorrow.  I was hoping I'd get lucky.  I didn't.   :(  I'm sooooo looking forward to this book!

I read it and really liked it.  Of the six books in the series, it's probably my third favorite.  At least right now.  Maybe if I re-read them the order would change.

Carressed by Ice is my favorite.  Then Slave to Sensation.  Then Branded by Fire.

I liked Branded by Fire - I really like both Mercy & Riley. It looks like she introduced a new animal grouping - I'm curious to see what happens there in subsequent books.

I'm really curious about the change of "heart"/tactics, anyway, about Nikita towards Sasha and what other interesting news the book will show. I'm guessing that the Psy X variant is something we haven't seen before. It looks like it'll present quite a challenge to what's-her-face and Hawke.
