Metal Mouth

SPOILER ALERT: Dinna read unless you've finished chapter 23 in DRUMS OF AUTUMN.

HOLY CRAP! THE SKULL IS FROM CLAIRE'S TIME!!!!!!!!! Who IS it???????

OMG this is up-to-the-second commentary. I was going to leave the post like that - but then I read on. THERE IS A PORTAL NEARBY!!! I KNEW IT! I KNEW IT! I knew Diana wasn't going to make Bree go through the arduous task of sailing the 7 frickin seas. I KNEW IT!!! She's going to come over right in NORTH CAROLINA!

Does anyone hear James Taylor playing in the background??? Shall I add him to the playlist? LOL "In my mind I'm going to Carolinaaaaaa"....

PS - I'm just coming the realization that Diana is most-likely going to make me wait until the very end of this book for Brianna to come through. Isna she?

You crack me up...because hindsight is 20/20 and I've read the whole series. :D

Ooh, you're getting close to a part that made me audibly gasp and my eyes bug out. But I'm not saying anything more.

KEEP READING (my catchphrase for you)

Sassy--was it the "they're going to die in a fire" newspaper article? I know Carol got to that part already--that was my "audible gasp" part that I just did NOT know what to do with. Trying to think what else it could be if it's not that...

Tracey--my audible gasp was in Chapter 30. I just couldn't believe "it happened". Can't say anything else I don't think? Was shocked and verra pleasantly surprised!!

Chapter 30. Hmmm. I wasna as surprised as you, I think. I kinda figured that was going to come to pass sooner or later. (Also I came across a spoiler somewhere that wasna exactly that, but pretty much indicated the possibility...)

Sortof putting my fingers in my ears and going "lalalalalalala" to this. Not sure if I've read chapter 30 and my book isn't in the room. Hmmm....

Tracey R. said...

I know you're there by now, Carol. YOU MUST CHILL!!

I was just surprised that it seemed to happen out of the blue, that's all. I figured it would happen eventually, it just surprised when it did JUST LIKE THAT. She's a sneaky one, that lass. ;)

I haven't finished Drums yet, but I wonder who the skull could be from modern times? Interesting that she jumps to idea of a portal nearby rather than came from Europe. Maybe Brianna can go back from close by?

I wonder if the fire is to cover Claire and Jamie moving elsewhere anonymously?

That was my first thought too.

Nosipho, I'm having great fun hopping around my reads with you. I haven't looked at some of these posts in years. :) And PS - you aren't the only one! I get others roaming around from time to time...so keep commenting on the older posts...and we'll get some discussions started in the new message board I'm tinkering with in a day or two. "If you build it, they will come." :)
