My mom half killed me for spending like 6-8 hours on the computer, but it was worth it. I definitely enjoyed the story, despite some gripes I might have with a few parts of it.

LewaLew, yes, the answer to life, the universe, and everything... :rolleyes: Take heart, M4M will have a lot of new characters that weren't in the Makuta stories, and the plot takes a completely new direction, so hopefully you won't be bored. If repetition of my old stuff is all that disappointed you, I'm thrilled! Most of the population won't have that problem. The Gorast/Teridax idea is really funny. There's no one on Morgoz's power level, though, aside from his brother.Zarayna, tell your mom I'm sorry for being a bad influence. :o It's great that you liked it enough to stay awake, though! Tell me your gripes, I'm a big girl. You might help me improve the sequel. (One of my early beta readers told me my working title stank, and it prompted me to discover the play on words that now graces the cover.) Did you like the narrator's name? ;)<shockwave>, I hope you have a nice, comfy chair and good lighting, so you'll be in a great mood when you write the review. :PThanks again to LewaLew and Wraith for their terrific reviews on Smashwords. I don't know if it was one of y'all, but someone named Kal Bluetooth just posted a great review on Amazon. The funny thing is, he mentioned the Hades and Persephone myth, which I never mentioned in D2D but plan to in M4M. Awesome!Thanks for stopping by, :kaukaunu:

as luck would have it, my Kindle decided to malfunction.... -_- (This is why I hate machines!) So I am not near the point I would like to be at. But, marching band season just ended, and I need something to fill that spare time.at this point it appears you will get a good review, as I am quite enjoying it. and if I weren't, I probably wouldn't have made it this far. but it will be in depth.BTW, is there a princess bride reference somewhere in chapter ten? I feel like that's not a coincidence...

I stayed up to some where around four in the morning a few nights ago ( I'm not sure when I started so I'm not sure how long I was actually reading it for), my mother was not there so I had no near death experience, but I'm a slow reader and not finished yet.So far I have found it most enjoyable, and unlike some books I have read it seems to move along quite quickly.There are some bad things I could say, but not now, maybe when I'm finished.

If wise man uses words, and strong man hits things, a wise strong man hits words.
Wait that doesn't seem right.

<shockwave>, sorry about your Kindle. Hope you got things straightened out. You can re-download it in any format, now that you've 'bought' it. A Princess Bride reference? Not deliberately, but I definitely see the poisoned-goblet similarity. (Twisted minds think alike.)light Laser, thanks for hanging with it! I look forward to hearing what you think (good and bad). :DAnd... I just finished the PROMO VIDEO! Check it out on my website, www.lilygee.com/video, and tell me about it in this topic.Thanks for stopping by,:kaukaunu:

I got it figured out. It stopped freaking out. mostly.unfortunately I haven't finished yet. but fortunately, it makes math a bearable class.Well. I finished. A little while ago. I'll try to write a review over the break.

<shockwave>, I hope you got a passing grade in your math class. :lookaround: I look forward to the review. ^_^

 

Well, thanks to some great feedback from y'all in my video topic, I was motivated to update the trailer. Check out the new video, now with 300% more original art, and a better Zarena voice recording! (Yeah,in the beta version I relied a little too heavily on recycled cover art, and now Zarena is more how I imagine her, too.) Find it here: http://lilygeefictio...ress.com/video/ Or just search for it on YouKnowWhere.

 

And... to celebrate me getting old (hey, it beats the alternative), I've posted a coupon code for those of you who didn't get a free ebook the first time. See my sig.

 

Thanks for the love!

Alright, here goes. (Heavy plot/ending spoilers will follow, read at your own risk. maybe later I'll do one for those of you who have not read the book.)

(and don't bother reading to get a coherent description on the plotline. believe me, it is anything but coherent.)

 

Spoiler

 

Alright, not nearly as extensive as I would have liked, and I'm sorry it isn't sooner. nut there you go. And I'm looking forward to the next one! :D

Shockwave, thanks so much for reading and reviewing! It's really good to hear that you didn't find any major plot holes. (That's one of my biggest fears.) I'm flattered that you liked the characters. I think the story is driven about equally between the plot and the characters, actually. The big plot twist is turning out to be the readers' favorite part. In the early planning stages, I considered making it an open secret, where the reader knows from the beginning even though Zarena doesn't, but it seems to work better this way. :D As for your specific objection, maybe I can explain it better:

Spoiler
Does that make sense? I agree, the time on the island could have gone a bit faster. What didn't you like about the names? I'm stuck with the major ones for the sequel, but I'm still making up names for the new characters. Your feedback may help me improve Muse for Mayhem! ^_^

 

In fact, I invite any of y'all who have read D2D to please tell me what you'd like to see in the sequel. What do you want to see more of--and less of? Any particular outcome? I welcome your brainstorms!

 

Also, I would love any feedback on the updated video trailer, with more original pictures and a better Zarena voice. www.lilygee.com/video

 

Thanks for popping in, people. Happy new year!

:kaukaunu:

Hm... I meant to type something else there... the names aren't bothering me... But I can't put my finger on it at the moment.... 

 

If you want to discuss further you can send me a message either here or on.... that other site.... that I can't mention.
