Here's a little quote from the book series I recently enjoyed.
"Cara, you and Raina stay here, along with Egan. Ulic, I'm sorry I yelled at you. ... Bernadine, ... you can come with me.The last two paragraphs were the main ones I was looking for, the other gives you an idea of what's happening.
Nadine, rather than looking impressed, appeared dumbfounded... Nadine finally turned a haughty look on Richard. She folded her arms across her breasts.
"And are you going to boss me around, too? Are you going to tell me what to do, like you seem to enjoy doing to everyone else?"
Richard, rather than getting angry... looked more disinterested than ever.
"There are a lot of people fighting for our freedom. I lead those willing to fight for their own freedom and on behalf of innocent people who would otherwise be enslaved. I lead because circumstances have placed me in command. I don't do it for power or because I enjoy it. I do it because I must.
"To my enemies, or potential enemies, I deliver demands. To those loyal to me, I issue orders.
"You are neither, Nadine. Do as you wish.
-pg 60, Temple of the Winds (book 4, The Sword of Truth series) by Terry Goodkind
Yesterday I let something happen... I ran out of books! I normally request the next book when I start one, but Saturday night, with only 150 pages left in book 5 (Soul of the Fire) I realized I'd forgotten to request book 6 (Faith of the Fallen). I finished 150 pages by mid-afternoon. In the evening, I made up for it by watching this weeks' episode, 21 of Legend of the Seeker... but was disappointed because the story line strayed SO FAR from book 4 (Temple of the Winds), upon which it was based. Oh well! I still like the books, I guess I'll have to suffer the shows inadequacies!
Speaking of which, we looked it up, and Legend of the Seeker has been renewed for a second season... I only hope Hulu will continue to carry it next season!
