The Shadow King: Part Two

Apologies to Senacus for anything mean ever said about you. We take it back you are just the sweetest. We're also taking back anything positive said about our immortal squad, let us explain why. And if you're Lask how much cannibalistic experimenting are you doing? I'm betting a lot. We've danced around this point for a while but Dan finally comes out and says it: he's on team Chosen.

The Shadow King: Part One

Luke gives out a free e-reader innovation: quick map access. We love a good map (skip to 4:16 if you couldn't care less about maps). First things first, if you are a prologue skipper get at us (@DCitaBC) and please explain yourself. The boys come down on Keilan, but he is being just a little self centered. Dan needs more fantasy goose chases. Luke doesn't believe anything send to him through the mail. And there are so many FLEXES in this book! Finally, is getting (eventually) sacrificed worth a dope wardrobe?
