Okay, I do agree with your opinion about not romanticizing things, and I asked Holly herself anonymously via LiveJournal. She said that was pretty much the point. It just seemed like an odd way to wrap up the series. It seems like there needs to be something else...
BTW, I now have a fanfiction account (AKA Harey) and have some Tithe things on there if anyone wants to check that out...

Just read Ironside... I agree, Ethine's not the character I thought she was. Roiben is too good at his promise of being emotionally frozen, and... honestly, I can't find much else wrong with it! It's a fantastic book, better than Valiant, in my opinion, and if you haven't read it don't listen to over-paid critics, just listen to other readers - it's worth it.
Corny takes a huge turn for the better, in my opinion - he's a lot less of a dork.

I made a mistake, go to amazon usa instead to read the chapetr excerpt of ironside. I haven't read it yet, I,m going to read it after my exams finish. I don't like what I'm hearing about the new book.

I have a feeling that the relationship was supposed to be a little shaky-it wasnt supposed to have a "they ride into the sunlight.....the end" ending.They had to get over the glamour of the relationship. He may be some hot sexy sidhe knight but thats a first (overly romantic)impression. He has seen and delt with horror and as much and people enjoy romantising it it hurts the guy. I guess that why i enjoyed how his character evolved in this one -cuz you get to see behind the facade. If you mean he went out of character well i didnt seem that way to me.

Ironside is OUT EARLY! It's quite funny. I have a list of about 20 things that made me laugh out loud. It was also quite good, but the ending seemed sort of shaky, and it lacked Tithe's gritty charm. Roiben also seemed quite different. I definitely prefer him in Tithe. The relationships in Ironside are all over the place, and I've decided that I don't really like Ethine much. At the end, it felt like Kaye and Roiben still didn't completely trust each other, and that everything was up in the air. And I have the feeling that Roiben won't do very well ruling both courts when he was having enough difficulty ruling one...Anyone else share similar thoughts?

Who bought the rights to make Tithe a movie? And where did you find this information? I don’t know whether to be excited or disappointed. While Tithe is definitely more deserving of being made into a movie, they always slaughter good books by making them into movies. Blood and Chocolate, anyone? I haven’t actually seen it, but I saw the previews and it looks thoroughly dumb. I also heard that Vivian shoots Gabriel at the end, instead of getting with him…and that she falls in love with Aidan(???). Anyway, Tithe is unquestionably movie material, but I’m afraid they’re going to either make it retarded, totally screw up Roiben (I can‘t think of any actors that could accurately portray him), change the ending (and/or other important details), or all of the above. And you know if they make a movie out of it, they have to make a movie out of Ironside. Do you think Ironside is movie material or not? And for goodness sake, YOU HAVE TO TELL ME WHAT HAPPENS! Something! Not too much, or something really important, but something… And I heard that Holly isn’t writing any more books set in this world, but she does have other things she’s working on. Do you have any idea what this may be?

I hate you, Kitze! Did you win it in that contest? My friend and I were going to enter it, but she's a procrastinator and I made the mistake of waiting 'till she wanted to get with me so we could write it. The contest was over by then, of course! I wrote my own after it was finished, and looking at the winning entries, I could have won! It makes so mad that I didn't enter!
I don't know if there's going to be a movie made of it. I doubt it, but if they did, they'd probably butcher it anyway. They always do that. I think the only movies I've seen where this wasn't the case is the Lord of the Rings Trilogy, and even then they deviated from the books. I have heard rumors of a Valiant movie, though.
