Chapter 24

What did you think when Reza shared the blood bond with Nicole?

It was all he could give her, and poor Reza, he needed to share a blood bond with someone.

Did you have a suspicion of who was sabotaging Reza's combat armor?

Oh, yeah. Resident bad guy. Surprised that he disappeared for so long after that.

Chapter 25

Do you think you would have had the courage to do what Eustus did to save Reza?

Heavens, no. But then, I'm not a Confederation Marine ... with good reason

What were your impressions after the exchange between Jodi and Thorella in the command bunker?

Have to reread that part.

Chapter 26

What did you think of Reza's rationale for not trying to get out of his assignment to the Red Legion?

Have to reread that part, too. But just off the top of my head, Reza is an honorable guy and has been trained from a very young age to follow orders.

Chapter 27

Nicole's getting married. Did you expect that? What do you think will become of Jodi?

No. Didn't expect that at all. Had to think for a minute who Tony was, but it came back. Jodi will be godmother and "Aunt" Jodi to their kids.

Were you surprised at what happened after the wedding??

Yes, definitely, but happy for them both.

Does the last line of this chapter, spoken by Father Hernandez, give you hope that Reza and Esah-Zhurah will be reunited?

When you ask a question like this, could you post the quote so I don't have to do a search?

Chapter 28

What were your first impressions of Erlang? Of the Mallorys and Raniers?

Much more than the Hatfields and the McCoys. I'm glad you gave us the background. The Raniers were much more sophisticated than the Mallorys and easily took over. I'm not sure all the Raniers are as bad as they appear to be.

When Reza first arrived there, were you wondering how it fit into the bigger story, or were you just riding along to see where Mike's fingers took you? ;) [You can tell when Jan writes these questions, can't you? - MRH]

Did you read my mind? Yes, at first, then I just went along for the ride.

Chapter 29

Were you surprised by the news Jodi delivered at the beginning of the chapter? How did you feel about what she said happened?

Could use another quote, here.

What are your impressions of Enya?

Intelligent lady with a mind of her own. She thinks very clearly and is not afraid to act on her decisions.

I'm on Chapter 39. shhhhhhh

Does the last line of this chapter, spoken by Father Hernandez, give you hope that Reza and Esah-Zhurah will be reunited: He stopped then, turning his attention again toward the sky and the invisible stars beyond. "Or the prodigal son who is yet to return
home?"


Ah, yes. Thanks for the quote. Yes, it does give me hope. It also shows that Father Hernandez is more open-minded than I originally thought.

Were you surprised by the news from Jodi about Father Hernandez at the beginning of the chapter? How did you feel about what she said happened? Here's what she said:
Father Hernandez died two days ago in Rome, here on Earth...


I was disappointed that we didn't see more of him. I thought there would be more interaction between Hernandez and Reza. I thought he might help integrate Reza back into human society.

Me, too. It's past my bedtime.

Yeah, a number of folks have commented on that. I suppose if I were to completely do the story over again he would play a larger role, because he certainly was an important influence on Reza. Bad fingers!
And JKR wants to rewrite all the Potter books. Don't second guess yourself. Your fingers wrote what they were supposed to write. Reza didn't really need to reintegrate with the humans. He only needed to be human enough to fight on their side, which he did.

I have now officially joined the 2:30am Klub (2:45, actually). Yes, I finished it early this morning, and was too tired to drive my granddaughter to school or me to the doctors. Bad Gertie. :mad:

Both of them were really suffering some serious emotional trauma at this point: Jodi was heartbroken at Nicole marrying, and guilt-stricken at how she'd behaved at the wedding; Reza felt like his emotional lifeline to Nicole had been cut, and his sense of loneliness was overpowering. Mix all that together with Jodi's headstrong personality...
That's pretty much the way I felt about it. It's really a blood-tie between Reza and Nicole. They are linked physically as well as emotionally. Hmmm, maybe Nicole's honeymoon passion linked itself to Reza and that's why he was overwhelmed. ;) Jodi may have also been feeling that blood-tie and sleeping with Reza is the closest she could ever get to Nicole.

Enya is tough. Like most of the other characters in the book, she's had to endure a lot in her life. But - like Reza's time on Hallmark - most of the abuse has been from humans...
There are things I want to say about Enya, but can't without spoiling. And I know we're a group of peekers, so I won't even put spoiler tags.

BOOM! One of the reasons I love tanks... ;D
I was thinking as I was reading
the final battle
that you probably served in the Navy.

I had to chuckle when Reza referred to human politics as "a dark art", (K9593) but I admit I'm looking forward to see how Reza deals with whatever Borge has in store for him. 8)

N :)
Borge and Thorella. You know that bad guy has to show up again.
