Reading to cat

Catching up

For him that stealeth, or borroweth and returneth not, this book from its owner, let it change into a serpent in his hand and rend him. Let him be struck with palsy, and all his members blasted. Let him languish in pain, crying aloud for mercy, and let there be no surcease to this agony till he sing in dissolution. Let bookworms gnaw his entrails... and when at last he goeth to his final punishment, let the flames of Hell consume him forever.

Getting behind with my book reviews again, so time for a catch-up.



Close Kin is the second book in The Hollow Kingdom trilogy, the first book of which I blogged about a few weeks back. I liked it so much I ordered the last two straight away from Amazon.
