The new version
« on: February 16, 2014, 01:10:53 pm »
I still have the old ones. I have all three on kindle and the first two in paperback (precious). Should I buy the new ones ? I mean what is new?

    Hi, Winter!  :)

    There have been some changes--due to the association with a traditional publisher, the books have been through a full developmental edit. But the story hasn't changed. Parts have been expanded, and parts have been cut back (this is particularly true of Fire-heart). Some names have been changed, but the story is the same and so are the characters. I think you're good to go without buying the new versions.

    Any thoughts from other readers out there? Brewie? Tip? Geoff?

    To answer the question:  I may purchase the new versions.....but......
    You will never get the original copies out of my hands.
    I liked them as they were.  Great books.

    I bought them, looked like there was a sale ^^ but I love the old art too, so we will see :) i have the first two in paperback and they look stunning I think, Not that the new ones are bad,  I'm just happy I have the old one too:)

    I also found that our elves are very good company when struggling to sleep. I have trouble breathing lying down now and just loosing myself in them made me more relaxed and able to finally go to sleep.

    I agree that Chris's books are well written and create a  feeling of comfort.

    I am adjusting to the new names, although I am a little curious, why Wellyn? Did that name also remind of something? Legolas is the only one I can imagine, but those are not really too similar? Anyway, enjoying a chapter each night:) Reading like eight books at a time right now, but this is my night book now and I just love to spend some quiet time with my beautiful cat as company and immersing in the adventures of our wonderful elves ^^
