[New] Tales from the Half Continent

N a while I ad to re wrap my mind around is Dickensian way of writing Which is a good thing Once I was firmly ooked bound and deep into the story or rather stories I didn t want them to end Although these two stories are set in the Monster Blood Tattoo world they Lest Darkness Fall and Related Stories have absolutely no connection with the Foundling Rossamund So no worries if you think you ll be left out in the cold with references to the Foundling trilogy There is nothingere that you should be expected to know from those prior books These tales stand well on their own The one area where perhaps one might feel left out on some clue the prior books ad a large glossary and many maps Whereas they were trimmed down within this book Since many terms are creations of the authors mind it certainly is difficult to look up their certainly is difficult to look up their However several of these odd words are defined within the same sentence This can be frustrating if later in the book you ve forgotten what it meant and really ave no easy way to look it up againFirst a side note As with the first book The Foundling it s paperback The type of paper they chose for the cover is sooooo smooth and a delight to You Don't Own Me: How Mattel v.
