Rainer Maria Rilke

"Live a while in these books, learn from them what seems to you worth learning, but above all love them. This love will be repaid you a thousand and a thousand times, and however your life may turn,-it will, I am certain of it, run through the fabric of your growth as one of the most important threads among all the threads of your experiences, disappointments, and joys."--Rainer Maia Rilke

A Short Interlude in a Great Series

Billy the Kid and the Vampyres of Vegas:  A Lost Story from the Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel by Michael Scott

Fantasy

This is a short read in the series Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel, a series that must be read in order.  Don't start with this one--it just won't make sense!

This series is one of my very favorites and these small snippets are so delightful.  They keep me sated whilst impatiently waiting for the next full installment.  Of course, there's that other part of me that wants to yell at Scott to quit teasing me with this stuff and get back to work on the full series!

Scathach, an ancient creature, and Billy the Kid, an immortal, team up, very reluctantly, to deliver Pandora's box to Scatty's arch enemy.  This enemy is also her greatest love lost--and the leader of the succubuths in Las Vegas.  Billy the Kid and Scathach are my favorite characters and watching them together in this story was a real hoot.  Sparks were definitely flying.  I loved the tension bwetween these two and see so many possibilities.....

Although it was very short, it was full of the very best of the series and good enough to be its own full-lenght story.
