Dault does not like to share the camera with me. Says I bring out his bad side.

I guess it's a compliment if someone who isn't a lesfic reader likes your lesbian book. Especially if it's someone who seems geared more toward dark/thriller/horror type fantasy. And more especially if it's someone who reviews for a het-fantasy site that rates Tolkien as the top fantasy writer ever. But, still, it's a bit dispiriting to see a review that finishes with:
Though this novel is about two women in a relationship, the setting, emotions and theme of fantasy all seem realistic and enjoyable.

(Unsurprisingly, a commenter on the review says she wants to see a sequel to Broken Wings....)

The difference between tolerance and acceptance.

Given how poorly written that review is, I'm not sure that sentence can be taken literally.

Eight stars though! :-)

Why do people want sequels? And ad infinitum, it seems. When I finish a book but continue to mull over its characters or themes, my immediate reaction is not to want a conclusion to all that. Having those lingering thoughts is part of the enjoyment of a good book. :dunno:

Proofrdr: I do agree with you about sequels. They really are not as good as the originals. Most of the time they are a "let-down" even though, if you had read them as a stand alone (with the first chapter additions that would give you background) they would probably be great reads.

I do crave the sequels too though. If I really enjoyed the book I want to know what else happened to the characters.

When I am the reader, I don't think about the fact that the characters are not actually real. So a sequel seems like a great idea (as though the person's life is already in existence rather than the fact that the writer now has to make new stuff up.)
