Book Talk: Keeping Promise Rock by Amy Lane

Keeping Promise Rock

I'm about two thirds (?I think?) of the way through this. The book seems to start somewhere near the end of the story, I think. At least, it had better, because I'm at the part where Crick leaves, and damn you, Amy Lane, if this doesn't end how I sincerely hope it will end, you and i? We will have a serious, sit-down, heart-to-heart discussion which will begin with: "What the hell were you thinking, you evil authoress!?!?!"

But I'm sure, in fact, I'm absolutely positively certain that you wouldn't do what it appears from the first part of this book you've done. You wouldn't. You couldn't. Not you. Not you who wrote Talker. And Talker's Redemption. And the third book, which I hear is a sweet, happily-ever-after bit of fluffiness those two deserve.

Crick and Deacon deserve it, too, Miss Amy Lane. If this is a Bittersweet title and I didn't know? THere will be sad times ahead.

I've done that, been reading a Bittersweet title and not realized it until the... bitter... end. ARGH!

But... it's a pretty recent line. *nudge nudge wink wink*

Do NOT give away the ending! lol! I have faith in Amy. I do, I do, I do.

And I have also had the experience of not knowing until the end that a story was not going to end the way I hoped. It sucks.

Chris said...

No! Not going to give away the ending. Just reassuring you that the Bittersweet line started later. I'm a spoiler-phobic reader myself. :)

Yeah, I'm still sad/cranky about The Night Porter, which was the one I didn't realize was a Bittersweet. *sniff8

Do you remember who wrote The Night Porter? Not that I'm going to read it, probably. You'd have to do some fast talking to get me to read a book I know won't end well.

Sue Brown. Rumor has it there's a sequel... it better NOT be a Bittersweet, dammit.

Jaime Samms said...

Sue Brown, huh? I'm kind of curious now. I suppose I could wait and see if there is a might mitigate the sad.

*fingers crossed*
