Arrows of the Queen - Mercedes Lackey

It was absolutely the right choice to start reading this. I don't know that I necessarily feel better, but at least reading feels like a light, easy, good thing.


This book has an embarrassing number of typos for something that was traditionally published by a big publisher, though. I've been reading fairly quickly, but I've spotted at least three. Not many compared to some books I've read, but it's definitely not an error-free read. The most amusing example: "Talia's voice was very small, her eyes verv large." (119)
