    The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the iniquities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he who, in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of darkness, for he is truly his brother's keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know my name is The Lord when I lay my vengeance upon thee.

      Easy peasy lemon squeezy for me.
      I found WWS a bit of a slog whereas i think i've read 'Adventures' four times now and will probably be reading again sometime this year!

            This match is like being asked whether you want to watch women's beach volleyball or something...that isn't women's beach volleyball.
            _"For an eternity Allard was alone in an icy limbo where all the colours were bright and sharp and comfortless.
            _For another eternity Allard swam through seas without end, all green and cool and deep, where distorted creatures drifted, sometimes attacking him.
            _And then, at last, he had reached the real world – the world he had created, where he was God and could create or destroy whatever he wished.
            _He was supremely powerful. He told planets to destroy themselves, and they did. He created suns. Beautiful women flocked to be his. Of all men, he was the mightiest. Of all gods, he was the greatest."

                  Had to go with Una and Catherine.

                    Wow that's a tough line up.

                    WW Son, but barely. It's a close call, both really good books.

                      I know everyone loves Una (including me); but I just have to go with WWS. The way it creates a full circle for the EC just makes the whole cycle all the better. Besides, the mashing of characters in WWS is beautifully done.

                        I did the first round Saturday and chose Catherine and Una. I think this book makes JC, in general, a lot easier to access. I feel the same way about Terraphiles. It makes Blood and the rest more accessible...at least for me.
