Waiting, waiting, waiting...
Mom called me and let me know all has cleared with the deal at the bank. Woot! The arrangements have been made and all we have to do now is wait for the banks and realtors to do their thing. As I've said before the closing will be around Jan. 14th, so all we have to do now is get the house insurance and wait for the closing date.
Yesterday I finished reading a demon slayer novel: Servant The Awakening by LL Foster (Lori Foster). It's very good, even though I guessed the ending by Chapter Six. I won't go there and spoil it for the rest of you, though; I'll just say if you like urban fantasy, Servant The Awakening is definitely worth reading. (And I do believe it's slated to become a series???)
Gaby, the heroine of the book has special powers that allow her to see demons who hide in human form, and it's her calling to seek them out and destroy them. However, as she's going to kill one of the demons she stumbles across Detective Luther Cross, who developes an immediate interest in her - well, heck, because she's a sexy chick walking around on the streets at night - but also because he could tell right away she's trained to kick ass, which makes her a perfect suspect, even if it is pre-crime.
The detective didn't really do much for me - cops aren't my thing - but Luther Cross makes a good match for Gaby. Now, the demon element I found really interesting and cool. I can't say to much without blowing the whole plot for you, but I appreciated that no gore was spared, and that nothing was sugar coated for me. Gruesome is, gruesome does. There is a bit of torture that goes on in this book that might not be for everyone who is reading for the sake of the romance. Overall, a really good book.
That's it for me today. Very late post, I realize, but better late than never. Tomorrow I'm taking Oldest to the eye doctor, and making and appointment there for myself. Hopefully after that everything will calm down for a while.
Off for now. Happy Wednesday!
