FiB II

It was so good, but sad, too! I wasn't expecting it to end as sad as it did. What did y'all think?

Sad.  But sweet.  I'm sorry to see Books go, but I can't imagine them getting out of that situation without deaths.

It's true - that scene was so tense, I was white-knuckling my Kindle! I had heard some people speculate that Bas was going to die and while I hate to see anyone go down, I'm glad it wasn't him - he seems like he would have more of a chance for happiness than Books did.

I was grinding my teeth through the whole scene and when Rias was shot at I may have squeaked a little. It is a shame Books died and it was admittedly very sad, but it would have been very unrealistic for everyone to survive a situation like that alive.

Now, about all those touchy feely scenes between Am and Sic. Squeeee!!!!!!!

Squee!  You mean those scenes I've read multiple times?

I was white knuckled during the sewer scene....  Wish I could have seen it from Sicarius' perspective too.

Yes, those. I think I'm on my fourth round on those  ;D

Yes, it was like a damn horror movie. Nothing worse than a bloodthirsty puppet assassin behind you in a tight, dark and dirty tunnel.

For some reason that didn't seem as intense to me as the mob scene. I mean, I was *mostly* sure Sic wouldn't tortue and kill Am, but mobs are scary.

I don't know.  The mob scene seemed off to me.  Maybe because it was so unexpected.  Whereas there was that lead up to the sewer scene...

The sewer scene seemed so ready-for-film. I could practically hear the soundtrack.

So I was randomly browsing the forums last night (after a loooong hiatus), trying to figure out when I could snag a copy of this book. I knew it'd be a long shot, but I was idly browsing when all of a sudden a saw a link to it on smashwords. I think I sat in disbelief for a solid 10 seconds or so.
And then I ran over to smashwords as quickly as possible. I couldn't put in my credit card information fast enough.
Aaaand then I devoured the entire book in 4-5 hours. I'll have to go back and re-read.
But anyway... BOOKS. Guys, I cried. Actual tears were in my eyes. (I NEVER cry in books like that.) That epilogue was so bittersweet, but I have so much sympathy for Akstyr. Poor guy. :(

Then there was the hair cut... Uh-huh. Good stuff :D Anyway, I'm gonna go back and read it again and again and again. Thank you Lindsay for this amazing series. So sad to see it go.

HAIRCUT!!
Once you've made sure that the signal gets through
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

I did make sure to put this thread in the spoiler section! :)

But yes, I would have liked to know in advance who was going to die. I always get my husband to tell me. It's the only way I made it through the firefly movie.
