::: Wicked Gentlemen (Hale)

Thank you, thank you, thank you noeon !! What a great read -- Wicked Gentlemen has an intriguing setting, imaginative interesting characters that drew me in, political and religious infighting, a smattering of theological debate, and some spicy drunken sex. Good stuff!! But it should have been three times as long as it was. I wanted more development of the relationship between Belimai and Harper, but I also wanted MUCH more about this world -- was the story about the Prodigals coming back from Hell true or was it a myth? If true, when/why/how did it happen? Continuing prejudice against them is certainly understandable, but if it's been centuries why haven't they intermarried more by now and created a hybrid? Are there any demons in positions of power? Is the discrimination legal or just habitual? Is there anyone in the Church who's truly spiritual or has it degenerated completely into a political power, like the Popes during the Renaissance? Do the Prodigals have souls? Why can't more of them fly? Etc etc etc etc etc.

Ginn, Ginn, please write more, do a sequel, do a series, do SOMETHING!!

I know!!!! The only thing wrong with is is that there should be SO MUCH MORE. We must write fan letters to Ginn Hale and begggggggg.

Don't you just LOVE Belimai and Captain Harper? NNNNGH! There should have been about 50 more sex scenes alone, not to mention so much more about the world.

PS SOOOO glad you like it. So very. See why I had to read it again before sending it off! (Can't wait to see what you think of Aciman).

Yes, fan letters, yes :) Have you read Jacqueline Carey's Kushiel series? Really think you'd enjoy it -- starts with Kushiel's Dart and just gets better. I've read the first two --if you can't find them let me know and I'll send them off.
