I'm excited- I discovered that Carla's book "Paths of Exile" is now available from Book Depository, so I promptly ordered a copy.

I read Twice Born last year, and right now, I'm about three-quarters of the way through Seer of Egypt. I'd love to know what you think of them when you get finished. have you read any of Pauline Gedge's other novels?

Hi Telynor, no I haven't read any of Pauline Gedge's books yet although I have "Child of the Morning" and "The Twelfth Transforming" on my TBR pile. I'm planning on reading one of the two very soon though. How do you like her books ?

I've read all of her Egyptian novels, and the Celic one, _The Eagle and the Raven._ I've enjoyed all of them very much, and I hope that she keeps writing. As far as Egyptian novels go, she's my favourite, hands down. and her research gets better as she goes.
