Book 6 Title Speculation!

If mwt is INDEED revealing the title of the next book tomorrow, this is our last chance to speculate about what it will be called! While I'm feeling very unprepared for the prospect of getting to read the last book in the series much sooner than I'd imagined, I AM prepared to put forward some title ideas, because I happened to be amusing myself by brainstormig them just a few days ago!

A lot of you are very good at puns, and I've been tuned out of Sounis more than I've been tuned in for the last few years, so it seems possible that this has been done before, but I still think it would be fun to squeak in before the reveal (?!?!) with a few new guesses as to what the title will be and/or analyses of the ones that already exist. Have at it, reprobates!

For those who aren't on Tumblr, Megan just posted this, suggesting she had just sent her manuscript to the editor.

And then she followed it up by saying the title would be revealed tomorrow.

I've been lurking here for on and off for years now, but I had a conversation with Jaime on a Facebook group for American librarians which convinced me to finally join! Huzzah!

(I should confess that I'm not actually a librarian, I work for a non-profit in Australia. I just need an excuse to make book recommendations that people will actually listen to.)

I've been reading (and re-reading) this series for about a decade now, and they're still my absolute favourites. The Queen of Attolia is my favourite of the series, but they're all so incredible.

I'm not sure what else to say, but thank you for having this fab little corner of the internet to keep us all sane while we wait for more books!

Late TaT Reread Entry - Revolting, I Know

Jun. 8th, 2018 | 11:16 pm
posted by: starmy63 in sounis

Ended up being MIA for part of the TaT reread, so I apologize for the late entry, but one more thing stuck out during this last reread that I hadn't noticed as specifically previously (sorry it if's been discussed before). I'll chalk this up as my (also late) prediction for future books entry.

p. 187 paragraph 3 reads: "There was little that frightened the citizens oft he empire like the possibility of a slave revolt." As I recall, there were several discussions or similar sentences multiple places in the book. I didn't note the page, but at one point Costis passes on what 'my king' says about the stability of the Medean empire, and that it's possible it could collapse completely under its' own weight. I don't necessarily see how, but I do wonder if this may either be at tactic employed by the Attolian empire in their war against the Medes, or even just a prediction on the part of someone who understands the principles of levers and frequently employs the principle himself (changing the mind of the man next to the man he wants to convince, etc.). I have to wonder if there might be a way Kamet's journey (as one of the most powerful slaves in the Medean hierarchy) in coming to trust an Attolian and to better understand freedom and individual will end up functioning in a similar way to shift the balance of power or change the minds of other slaves in Medea.

Oh. My. Gosh. Where has this series been all my life? I read a lot, I mean A LOT. How could I have missed this? I am completely obsessed. I read the first three books last weekend and then I had to just stop and let it all soak in. I am dying because I have no one to talk to about these amazing stories, these amazing characters. I know my daughter would love them too but she has two more weeks of an intensive six week college session (microbiology and precalc, good times) and can’t start reading them until she’s done.

Aargh! Y’all!! Do you know how spoiler-y these books are?? (Of course you do.) You literally cannot say ANYTHING! When I finished KoA (absolute favorite) I was about to burst. I said to my daughter, “Omigosh, this series! So good! I...I...I...it...it...it...oh, I can’t say anything about it without ruining it! There are these....characters....this...this...this...relationship! Omigosh, I’ve already said too much!” My daughter’s response: “Mother, you’ve said literally nothing!” Lol! 

Anyway, sorry for the crazytown rant, but I just wanted to say thank you for this group. I’ve been crawling around the bowels of the archives, vicariously enjoying all the discussions, but I wanted to come up for air long enough to say hi and thanks for existing. :)
