Also, may I add what a hardship it truly is to look at images of Javier Bardem. I mean, it's pure and undiluted torture.  :o

While I really enjoyed this book, I rather liked Encrypted better. I still find it odd, cause with the EE series I haven't liked one book more than the other. So not exactly sure why it is that I preferred the first book more than the second.
I've been thinking that, too, but I suspect it may be because the stakes were higher in Encrypted. I mean really—and darn, this got cut off, but I said that despite Tikaya's (justifiable) fears that she might have to pick between Rias and her family, it seemed obvious (from what I, as a reader, knew of Rias) that it wouldn't be an issue.

Amaranthe/Sicarius fangirl, who wonders why she has a fondness for fictional characters that she'd suspects she'd flee if she met 'em in real life.

Yeah maybe that's what it was. I dunno. Maybe it was that there just wasn't as much action. It seemed kinda tame in comparison.

Yes. :)

If you're selecting men, er, models, does that mean there's artwork coming?

Is Javier Bardem a tennis player!? RIA, EDUCATE YOURSELF.

Am I the only one who saw Rias dressed like this at the end? :P

There's one final thing that I want you to do
Put me where I'll see stars, so that I can see you
And I'll soar like a leaf on the wind

Hah, well my editor must have missed them too. :P It just seems that it's impossible for one person to catch everything (or five for that matter). I now grin with delight when I find typos in traditionally published books--glad to see they get past those guys too!

A few of my print books have red pen marks in them because of that!

Maybe closer to this

"To what end?"

Hey, I can't help it if my RESEARCH involves a lot of Gerard Butler.  There's a lot of material to study!  That's why we're a TEAM!

...if this means he gets to wear tight shorts, then yes...he is most definitely a tennis player...
