Cyndere's Midnight By Jeffrey Overstreet

Hello to my Readers! 

I realize I am a bit late. :( I got caught in a bad rain storm coming back from town several hours ago. Since I have satellite internet, I then wound up with out 'net till now! So now here I am! But I am sure it isn't midnight some where, so maybe I am not too late! 

This was a wonderful book! I had just joined this group when I missed the first book,  Auralia's Colors . When the sequel came in, I couldn't stand it! I ordered Auralia's Colors as quickly as I could! I found it to be a really wonderful book, and I am so glad I got to read it before reading Cyndere's Midnight because I felt like I knew so much more of the history that lead up and into this book. 

In  Auralia's Colors we met a girl with a fantastic gift, who doesn't know why she has this gift or exactly what the purpose is, only that she *must* use it. She made some friends and fans along the way and in Cyndere's Midnight some of them are included. The town/palace had changed to a neighboring one. Here another girl name Cyndere dreams of taming the Beastmen who raid and murder all across the lands between the kingdoms. 

Auralia's color gift now absent, Jordam, like the other Beastmen is in trouble. He is addicted to a drink, that is quite akin to a drug. When Jordam meets Cyndere he sees a kindred spirit. Cyndere is the last of a royal line, so she is ever guarded and ever alone and hurting over her life. Will Cyndere live to see the day when the Beastmen are free of their addiction and her heart doesn't hurt anymore? And where does the Ale Boy, who so cared for Auralia fit into all of this?

I am not going to tell you because I want you to read this book! It was wonderful! 
I am happily waiting for the third book. Mr. Overstreet's writing is different and refeshing.
Cyndere's Midnight reminds of me a pebble tossed into a pond. Let's watch where all the ripples lead.

Thanks so much, Carol! I appreciate your enthusiasm. It's encouraging. The ripples are still spreading, and I'm still chasing them. I hope you like the next book.

Glad you're up an running again, Carol. I've been without internet service for a length of time and it is ... an adjustment! I felt like I was missing out on so much.

Good intro to both books. Thanks for taking part in the tour.
