Keep in mind, I'm still waiting for the book to come out so these are some of my theories that I've
Arya will be the green rider, or Elva
Arya and Eragon fall in love and she dies, thus the romance thing
Eragon will leave alagaesia forever to teach the rider school at vroengard.
Roran will be king of the Varden/Alagaesia
Nasuada will be overthrown
Saphira and thorn will fall in love.
The Rock of Kuthian is a ginormous Eldunari
The Vault of Souls is a place for spirits to live, and while there eragon visits/talks to brom.
Murtaugh kills Galby, sacrificing himself or thorn to do so, sort of like the Palpatine/ Vader scene at the end of Return of the Jedi.
WARNING CONTAINS INHERITENCE SPOILERS
EDIT: Highlight below for spoilers
Yeah, its been like a month, but lets see.
I was right on the first one
1/2 Right on the second
Semi right on the third
Eeh, he rules carvahall now
Sorta Kinda right about the RoK (It's a vault of eggs/eldunari/)

The first three are part of series by Kevin Hearne called the Iron Druid Chronicles it is as a qoute from the amazon page. "Atticus O’Sullivan, last of the Druids, lives peacefully in Arizona, running an occult bookshop and shape-shifting in his spare time to hunt with his Irish wolfhound. His neighbors and customers think that this handsome, tattooed Irish dude is about twenty-one years old—when in actuality, he’s twenty-one centuries old. Not to mention: He draws his power from the earth, possesses a sharp wit, and wields an even sharper magical sword known as Fragarach, the Answerer." This is probably the best adult urban fantasy series I've seen since the Dresden Files. The fourth book is due out in early 2012

This week's book is Skinwalker (Jane Yellowrock, Book 1). Fans of series like True Blood, and Kelley Armstrong, and to a certain extent, the Mortal Instruments, will enjoy this series in which vampires and witches are "out of the closet" and are commonplace, and with vampires come vampire hunters. Cue Jane Yellowrock and Indian Skinwalker who has a panther living inside her. She is hired by a vampire in New Orleans to take out a rogue vampire who is targeting the city's resident bloodsuckers. Also involved in the story is an undercover police officer who serves as Jane's love interest, and her best friend, an earth witch trying to keep her kids under the government's witchy radar. The story has a ending that is completely unexpected.
I like how Faith Hunter. the author of the book, portrays Vampires and she is very descriptive, I've never been to the French Quarter, where the novel is written, but I could almost smell the boudin balls frying and here the people talking. She needs to work on her action scenes and I would like to read more about how her witch's magic system works. The Question is, would I reread it? Not likely.
I give this book 8.5 out of 10 stars for excellent descriptions, and well thought out characters.
Join me next week when I review the third Wolves of Mercy falls series.

Why is it the more gruesome an event in history the more people want to honor it?
For example, in a city close to mine the local fire department is obtaining a
Yes, that’s right, the twin freaking towers, you know the whole big WTSHTF our country getting invaded and one of our biggest cities, not to mention the pentagon and the white house, almost.
Anyhow, a few of the city’s firemen is going before April to
They are going to create a memorial and this September, a decade exactly after the 9/11 attacks, dedicate it to the community.
To raise funds for this “momentous occasion” they are going to sell bricks for 150 bucks apiece.
WHAT IS WRONG WITH THEIR HEADS! To me September 11th was a tragedy, not something that should be memorialized in some small insignificant hicktown like a circus sideshow.
This would be like me taking a piece of the USS Arizona off of the Pearl Harbor Memorial and taking it back to where I live.
Right now someone is probably saying.
“But they’re firefighters.”
I don’t care! For three generations my dad’s side of the family has been in the army, does that give me rights to take a piece of the Vietnam Memorial Wall? I am also American, does that mean I can have a piece of the Declaration of Independence or since I lived in
There is a fine line between remembering a tragedy and showboating.. I think they’ve crossed it. This, to me, is like taking a piece of a graveyard and hanging it up on a billboard. This is morbid, crass and hicktown idiocy at it’s finest.
