I really loved her "Truth" series - definitely recommended, especially for those that like tales with dragons.  :)

I also enjoyed the "Princess" series, though it's a bit annoying that the end of the 2nd book seems to suggest she's in the middle of a series, but then no more arrive, and searching the web it seems that she's decided that's all for now. She hasn't published anything else though for a year or so now - writers block?

I'll second this author. Both series are really good - although I am surprised that the Princess series apparently turned out to be a duology. I thought it could be mined more. I think the books are marketed as YA, but I really didn't see it as that. They're definitely for all audiences.

Both series were very good. The Truth series was my absolute favorite, Forgotten Truth being teh best in my opinion.

I agree though, she could have continued the princess series quite easily. I wish that she would have continued so we could see what would come of the princess and Jeck. Loved the idea of them together.

How funny! I like the Kim Harrison books too, but hadn't recognised that it was the same person!

That's just trippy.

 That is usually an option but she just bought a new one !  LOL

  She hates doing dishes so we will probably be stuck with that ! :D

I just finished the Princess series - really upset that there won't be a continuation =/ I really wanted to see what would happen with the relationships.

I've read the first 2 Truth books, but I'm kinda wary about getting the next one since Alissa and Strell are already pretty much together, or at least they both know they love each other and the chase of the relationship is my favorite part of reading, so with that, would you still recommend I continue with that series?

Ooo artsy things =D
