It's interesting how different our reactions can be to Lois' different 
series -- and the reasons why.

For example, Lois has said that some people bounced off the romance in 
TSK, whereas I quite enjoyed that aspect of the books.

OTOH, the reason why I have not reread the Sharing Knife series (tho I 
enjoyed it well enough the first time) are

a) the pioneer/Western setting isn't one that particularly appeals to me

b) I don't like the horror genre feel added by the malices. I avoid horror 
stories, and the fact that malices are purely evil and cannot be reasoned 
with really turns me off.

But YMMV. Are there aspects of this series or other of Lois' series 
that work for you or don't?

If there is a book that you want to read, but it hasn't been written yet, you must be the one to write it.
