I realize that I have been more recluse the past few years and time kind of escaped me. So, this is an introduction post to say Hi to not just my Sisters.

Hi, I'm Ariadne. Many will often call me "Arie" out of habit. Both work. Ariadne just looks prettier in a Signature. ;)

I'm a Mom of *sighs* Pre-teens and live in the Oregon Coast area. The past few years have been really rough and so my focus has been largely on survival thanks to the pandemic, multiple family deaths, kids in school AT home, and unprecedented depression in my entire household.

You know the usual.

I'm an old hat around these parts and relatively pleasant to be around. My sense of humor is both dark and dry, and I have a weakness for color (in any form.. like yarn, paint, or stationary), and I am easily bribed with cookie dough on a good day. (Wine on a bad day.)

My favorite book is still Crossroads of Twilight, and Galad is still my favorite character, and not for the obvious reasons.

*Shares some homemade banana bread muffins.. that are ALWAYS in her house these days.... if they last the day.*

So… for what unobvious reasons?

The usual "oh he is so pretty", etc. For me, it's because of all the characters he continues to surprise me, especially his growth in later books. Prediction is boring, and I often can't help it. So when a character makes a choice I don't expect, they stand out.

So far this is at the top for me as well. I would interested to hear your reasons for it.

As a writer I recognize the subtle nuance and foreshadowing is *chef kiss* in this book. The set ups that are being laid down to come out in later books is just masterful and above all, it really is what endears me to the the writing over the story itself.

I am still reading the last couple books, so I cannot comment on the foreshadowing yet. But I really just loved what everyone was doing. I like to see pieces moving on the board, so to speak.
