Howdy all you Gatherers and Grand Geeks among the stars! I hope all is well with you and that the time change wasn’t too much of a burden in losing an hour’s time. But in all fairness this is my preferred time change, so honestly if this can be our final change-up here that would be just fine by me. Alas, we are facing some rain this week so I know I’ll be bundled up and warm ready to break out something fine to read. But let’s see what I’ll suggest to you before the deluge hits!

It seems we now have a new volume in the Ghost Wolf series, and this time the titular character’s nemesis will reveal themselves to Mara as well as her son Lif, the latter of whom now wears the mantle of the Spirit. Peace seemed to have been the rule beforehand but now it seems that very state of affairs is threatened with this new adversary come to the forefront. With Lif’s new mantle, and his mother being the Jarl of the Northern Wastes, will they have what it takes to defend their kind against this new enemy? Or will this be an end to them from what we glean of this volume’s subtitle?!
