that's not right

I finished the first book of a trilogy, Firebird, for bookwyrmmes and in looking up the author's website I find she rewrote the first two books in 1999 and 2000 before writing the concluding novel. Now I've finished off the first two books, Fusion Fire being the second, in the earlier editions! and in starting the third book, Crown of Fire she has a short synopsis of what went on in the preceding books.
I'm reading this and no, that's not exactly what happened - you've twisted it, that's not right either, and that's just another name change there. The whole thing is very different from her original novels. She's turned the whole series on it's ear and Firebird is no longer the heroine in the story, it's her husband. Bah. The story doesn't even need Lady Firebird to work anymore. Phooey.
You can't tell I'm disappointed , can you? lol I'm not sure I want to read the last book. I could tell approximately where she was going, the surprises just added to the suspense, and was really enjoying the series but this is just too much. She's turned it into a religious series with a prophecy that deals with a future king to rule the galaxy instead of just a hero that will defeat the bad guys.
Okay, enough of that. I'm taking myself out to the bookstore! :)

Wow! I have never heard of an author doing something quite like that. What a way to annoy your readers!

Guess what...I'm halfway done with No Offense Intended (if that's what it's called) and am enjoying it. It's taking me longer because I had already started another book, so now I'm reading two. And I'm not quick like you. :P

I thought it was a bit drastic and maybe if I hadn't already read the earlier editions, I'd like the newer ones okay but I know that I won't like them if I read them now!

I found it to be a much better series than I thought it would be given the drug, prostition, and daddy selling his girl angle. I have the rest of the series coming from the Library if I can finish what I plan for Dec.
And I'm falling behind thanks to a little word association game someone posted about! :D I'm certainly not going to mention any names, sillyliss, since we both know who I'm talking about. *grin* I was up about 25 hours trying to figure it all out! How'd you do?

And I found a new mystery series: Saddled with Trouble is the first horse lover's mystery by Michele Scott. Not that I needed to get another new series to try! I can't even finish the ones I've got now!

I haven't finished that puzzle yet, but it's just the sort of thing I can't stop until I finish. Some of them were really tough associations, but it was a good learning tool. I wiki-ed more stuff than I've EVER wiki-ed. I'll be working on it more tonight. There are still about 6 minimaps I haven't even opened yet. :P
