Ohh I need to check that out! I loved the Sword of Truth series but honestly the last couple books he wrote for it felt kind of off. Hopefully I will enjoy this one.
I wasn't impressed with Omen Machine, or Law of Nines. Though Law of Nines was good. The First Confessor was amazing, and its only available on E-reader. So like if you have a nook or kindle, and there are a few others. There is an app you can download for your computer for free from amazon for kindle books too. But it truly was amazing!

I will have to get it for my Tablet!
Perhaps I can find time to read it on my next break from school in December. I wasn't impressed with the Omen Machine at all. It seemed like he was just rewriting the same thing over again. I am glad he has wrote a good book again!

I just didn't feel the characters were the same anymore. Like Nicci, she just wasn't the same. He is currently writing the sequel to the Omen Machine. I hope that one is way better. Although Hanis Arc, and his Mord Sith do give me chills. lol!

Have not heard of this book yet. What is it about?
Gwen Cooper wrote my favorite book Homer's Odyssey a true story about her blind cat which reminds me so much of my Huly.

Homer's Odyssey Overview:
ONCE IN NINE LIVES, SOMETHING EXTRAORDINARY HAPPENS.

The last thing Gwen Cooper wanted was another cat. She already had two, not to mention a phenomenally underpaying job and a recently broken heart. Then Gwen’s veterinarian called with a story about a three-week-old eyeless kitten who’d been abandoned. It was love at first sight.

Everyone warned that Homer would always be an “underachiever.” But the kitten nobody believed in quickly grew into a three-pound dynamo with a giant heart who eagerly made friends with every human who crossed his path. Homer scaled seven-foot bookcases with ease, survived being trapped alone for days after 9/11 in an apartment near the World Trade Center, and even saved Gwen’s life when he chased off an intruder who broke into their home in the middle of the night. But it was Homer’s unswerving loyalty, his infinite capacity for love, and his joy in the face of all obstacles that transformed Gwen’s life. And by the time she met the man she would marry, she realized that Homer had taught her the most valuable lesson of all: Love isn’t something you see with your eyes.

And Love Saves the Day is her new fiction book about a Cat.

Love Saves the Day Overview:

From the author of the New York Times bestselling memoir Homer’s Odyssey comes a tender, joyful, utterly unforgettable novel, primarily told through the eyes of the most observant member of any human family: the cat.

Humans best understand the truth of things if they come at it indirectly. Like how sometimes the best way to catch a mouse that’s right in front of you is to back up before you pounce.

So notes Prudence, the irresistible brown tabby at the center of Gwen Cooper’s tender, joyful, utterly unforgettable novel, which is mostly told through the eyes of this curious (and occasionally cranky) feline.

When five-week-old Prudence meets a woman named Sarah in a deserted construction site on Manhattan’s Lower East Side, she knows she’s found the human she was meant to adopt. For three years their lives are filled with laughter, tuna, catnaps, music, and the unchanging routines Prudence craves. Then one day Sarah doesn’t come home. From Prudence’s perch on the windowsill she sees Laura, the daughter who hardly ever comes to visit Sarah, arrive with her new husband. They’re carrying boxes. Before they even get to the front door, Prudence realizes that her life has changed forever.

Suddenly Prudence finds herself living in a strange apartment with humans she barely knows. It could take years to train them in the feline courtesies and customs (for example, a cat should always be fed before the humans, and at the same exact time every day) that Sarah understood so well. Prudence clings to the hope that Sarah will come back for her while Laura, a rising young corporate attorney, tries to push away memories of her mother and the tumultuous childhood spent in her mother’s dusty downtown record store. But the secret joys, past hurts, and life-changing moments that make every mother-daughter relationship special will come to the surface. With Prudence’s help Laura will learn that the past, like a mother’s love, never dies.

Poignant, insightful, and laugh-out-loud funny in the ways only a cat can be, Love Saves the Day is a story of hope, healing, and how the love of an animal can make all of us better humans. It’s the story of a mother and daughter divided by the turmoil of bohemian New York, and the opinionated, irrepressible feline who will become the bridge between them. It’s a novel for anyone who’s ever lost a loved one, wondered what their cat was really thinking, or fallen asleep with a purring feline nestled in their arms. Prudence, a cat like no other, is sure to steal your heart.

I met Gwen in person at a book signing and we chatted for awhile! AMAZING Person! Also a portion of all book sales go to rescue and instead of doing book store book signings on her tour she is going to No Kill Animal shelters to help raise awareness.
