LIBRARIAN CHAT-update 2/7/2020
2/7/2020 - Stayed up late last night to finish "The Queen of Nothing" by Holly Black. This is...the third (and final) book in "The Fold of the Air" series. If you enjoyed the first two books I guarantee this last one will make you happy.

The book opens with Jude still exiled to the human world trying to figure out how to get back to Faerie. Her twin sister, Taryn, shows up and announces she is pregnant and has killer her husband. Not knowing that Jude cannot be glamoured, Taryn wants Jude to go back to Fairie and take her place at her trial so Jude can truthfully tell the inquest she did not kill Locke. Jude will do anything to get back into Fairie and agrees to the deception. All seems to be going well until Cardan asks to have a private work with Taryn/Jude. Does he know it is her? What will he do?

Full of deception, twists and turns, and a lot of suprise confessions this book was a great ending to a great older teen series.

1/27/2020 - Continuing my string of second books in series, I just finished "Steel Tide" by Natalie C. Parker. This is the...second book in the "Seafire" series. Like the first book, I recommend this book for 10th and up.

Caledonia survived her encounter with Lir and was rescued by a group of Blades (Bullets who ran away and are in hiding). Though she does not trust them, and they do not trust her, they heal her using stolen tech. Their good deed puts their whole group in danger and now they must flee again to find safety. But Caledonia has other plans. She needs to find her crew and apologize for deserting them but she can not do it alone. She makes a deal with the Blades, in return for helping her capture a boat, she will take the Blades through the Net and to safety while looking for her crew. Of course things never go as planned with Caledonia, but you will have to read the book to find out what happens to her.

1/6/2020 - Finished "Starsight" by Brandon Sanderson last night. If you enjoyed the first book, you will love the second book. Be prepared for a cliffhanger ending!

Spensa is trying to figure out how to use M-Bots cytonic hyperdrive when an alien space ship crashes on Detritus. The pilot is seriously injured but is also cytonic and passes critical information to Spensa before passing out. Spensa must decide within minutes if she is going to take the information M-Bot retrieves from the crashed ship and the pilot and jump into Krell territory and attempt to steal their hyperdrive technology. Using holographic technology, Spensa, now looking like the crashed pilot Alanik, and M-Bot disguised as her ship along with a stowaway, Doomslug, do exactly that.

1/2/2020 - I finished the three books in my adult series and am now reading "Starsight" by Brandon Sanderson. It is the sequel to "Skyward"
