Welcome John - it took me ages before I got the courage to post but this lovely group of people have been so welcoming.

Take courage Alkari - The King's Deryni is crossing the Atlantic quicker than expected (now due tomorrow!!) so hopefully the same will be true for the Pacific.
Let God rise up, let his enemies be scattered;
    let those who hate him flee before him.
As smoke is driven away, so drive them away;
    as wax melts before the fire,
    let the wicked perish before God.
(Psalm 68 vv1-2)

Surely Amazon has a Transfer Portal - the European outlet is somewhere in Switzerland I gather?

God is good. It has arrived - lovely and shiny and new. All my other KK's are good quality second hand - This is all mine! And DH is away visiting 2nd DD in London and I have a rotten cold (and hence good excuse for not working this evening) so once Dad's tea is done I shall wrap up in my duvet with some mulled wine and several hot water bottles and read!!

lovely dedication

My hardcover is not expected to be delivered until end of day Saturday, and since my office is closed on Saturdays, I'm not expecting to actually see it until sometime on Monday.  *sigh*  Fortunately I've got the Kindle version.  By the time I get the hardcover in hand, I'll likely already be done reading the book!

Sounds like a great way to spend an evening, even with the icky cold. =o) Enjoy your read, Revanne, and feel better soon!  :)

Evie, I hope your hard cover arrives a day early on Friday, for your Birthday.
Revanne, so glad to hear you have your copy, I hope Alkari gets her copy really soon.

This morning I stopped reading when my eyes were tearing up, and I could no longer read the words on my laptop. I'm about a third of the way through. I have both the book and the kindle version, but I am finding myself reading the kindle version most of the time.

I learned a new word this morning- peregrinations. Had to look it up. Therefore, I will claim being educated along side our wonderful young Alaric.  :D

Thank you for al the welcomes.  I have been an occasional poster
to KK's sites for quite some time  on different groups.  I have been
able to keep myself to 2-3 chapters a night and after 3 nights I am at 48%.
Usually this would be a one night KK scan, followed by another reading,  I must be getting old, 57 next week.
Good reading!
Pax,
john

Now I know why real paper is preferable to digital. I spent four hours sitting at the dealership waiting for them to fix my car. I had thought the wait would not be a problem. I had Alaric with me. Right!. After 45 minutes, my WiFi ran out of battery and I did not have my charger. I had charged my lap top all the night before, but forgot the charge the Hot Spot. I am so dumb. In frustration, I sat around unable to do anything for three hours. I so wish I had brought the real book. But Alas....! I have not been home to read all day, and I fear I am too tired tonight to even attempt it. Tomorrow, I will read tomorrow. Alaric be patient with me, I will see you in the morning.

Poor Laurna - I guess too many fatigue banishing spells have taken their toll. How frustrating though :(

Got my book on Tuesday and finished it way way too late last night/early this morning.  Could have finished sooner, but I got delayed by holiday decorating.  Looking forward to other people finishing the book so that we can start rehashing it.

I'm embarrassed to admit I've already finished it, too. =o) 

Years ago KK joked  that at a con panel, a fellow author joked that  an alternate title for King Kelson's Bride could have been "Four Weddings and Funeral."

To which another colleague replied "Well usually she writes Four Funerals and a Wedding!"  Either way, I think  TKD meets the quota.  ;D

Almost there - although I have then to do my reread to luxuriate on all the bits I missed.

Reminds me of when we went on holiday in the caravan when the children were young teenagers and the last but one Harry Potter book came out. We were desperate to discuss it in the long car journeys through France but DH is a much slower reader than the rest of us (doesn't miss stuff though) and forbade it until he had finished.

I am dying to discuss TKD especially... ( :-X)
