Oh, for Frak's sake. I'm just putting this on hold again. 9)

Yeah, it's frustrating. I'm halfway through The Gathering Storm and there are some side characters that I couldn't care less about that are taking up time. I just want to get some resolution!

See this is why I stopped this series after book 3 or 4. The number of plots and story lines just kept growing, also I remember being really put off by the slapping of the face that kept on happening in stead of words.

I still have to say that - for me - the ending was worth reading the book. I really really really loved the ending  :-LOVE

The ending for what, Cerulean? I didn't think they were all done yet?

I don't want to write the great American novel. I want to write the great American beach read. It pays better!
