Yes she did love it too. But than, she big fan of Jim Butcher too - and Jim and Shannon are husband and wife LOL

It was Darla, by the way who finally got me to buy Shannon books. I got them both but haven't read them. Maybe if I hurry and read the first book, we can read the second book together? That is if you don't forget what happen with Kite Runner....*sigh* LOL
