Angel Time

The last time I really enjoyed a novel was a few months ago, when I journeyed through Sevenwaters with Sorcha and her brothers in Daughter of the Forest. If you're familiar with The Six Swans, then you have the gist of DotF. My favorite character in the book is Cormack, third brother of Sorcha. I was a little sad that he wasn't fleshed out more, and the fact that (SPOILER!) he dies in the rest of the series dissuaded me from buying and reading the following books. So, onto another book!

Anne Rice returns to the mesmerizing storytelling that has captivated readers for more than three decades in a tale of unceasing suspense set in time past—a metaphysical thriller about angels and assassins.

The novel opens in the present. At its center: Toby O’Dare—a contract killer of underground fame on assignment to kill once again. A soulless soul, a dead man walking, he lives under a series of aliases—just now: Lucky the Fox—and takes his orders from “The Right Man.”

Into O’Dare’s nightmarish world of lone and lethal missions comes a mysterious stranger, a seraph, who offers him a chance to save rather than destroy lives. O’Dare, who long ago dreamt of being a priest but instead came to embody danger and violence, seizes his chance. Now he is carried back through the ages to thirteenth-century England, to dark realms where accusations of ritual murder have been made against Jews, where children suddenly die or disappear . . . In this primitive setting, O’Dare begins his perilous quest for salvation, a journey of danger and flight, loyalty and betrayal, selflessness and love.

I'm really excited to read the first installment of Songs of the Seraphim. I already started, but I haven't devoted enough reading time to actually delve into the world of Lucky the Fox. Anne Rice is one of my favorite-est authors along with Eoin Colfer. Can't wait for the next Artemis book either!

What about you? What are you reading now? :)

EDIT: Apparently, Artemis Fowl: The Atlantis Complex was released a few months ago. Slipped past my radar again. Hun please get me this! :D

Sundae's Sunday Out

Sundae's Bonfire photo :)

Last Sunday was a fun and tiring date for Sundae. We attended Eastwood's Pet Blessing at around 5pm. Upon registration, we were handed a sample pack of Pet One dog food. While I don't particularly like Pet One because the ingredients list makes me cringe, I like how the company is making an effort to let pet owners have a trial to see if their babies would like it. The sample pack contained two 125g bags of the adult formula and a 75g bag of the puppy formula. Since my babies are thriving on Canidae, the Pet One will be given as occasional treats instead. Kibble is the perfect size for those in between meal nibbles.

Sundae made so many friends! At Eastwood, she charmed a number of humans and canines. She was taken aback though, when one feisty terrier barked sharply at her. Other than that, we all had a grand time as Sundae was a very well behaved puppy at the event. 

After having dinner at Fazoli's (yummy baked ziti!), we headed to Ateneo. We chanced upon a nice parking spot, so we parked quickly and headed to the Grade School Grounds where the Bonfire was being held. Sundae was really sleepy as she had just woken up from napping in the car. Upon getting to the ASSOC tent, she was nearly smothered by all the cuddles she was getting! Sundae was gracious and accepted all the attention as if she was born for it. Treats for such a well behaved pup! Even though she was tired and sleepy, she wasn't grouchy at all. We had her running (we were walking, she had to run to keep up with us!) to the car so that she would be encouraged to pee before we left. Movement creates movement! She went in the grass and we were proud. :) She went home dreaming all about friends and cuddles.
