Title: Edge 2 - snippet discussion
Post by: CheeseBK on October 07, 2009, 03:12:47 am
We has a snippet!!!!! *hops up and down like a loon*
see? that's me and my split personalities, and they are ALL excited -->  jumP

Hope you all have seen it on the blog???

Please put the Edge 2 snippet discussion in here, cause there might be people out there who have read on the edge, but don't want to be spoilered about on the edge 2.
In a few weeks (my personal opinion is, one month after release date would be good, what do you say?) we will move the On the Edge discussion out of the spoiler-section into the 'normal' book section and then the spoiler section will be Edge 2 only ;)

 thankU for understanding!

I guess my mind is still stuck on Rose's section of The Edge...Gotta mentally switch gears here :)
I loved the snippet & am curious as to what kind of creature is being retrieved. Obviously a both land & water creature...
Title: Re: Edge 2 - snippet discussion
Post by: CheeseBK on October 07, 2009, 07:39:16 am
yeah, a rolpie. not sure what it is ;)

but since she calls it the fattest rolpie I assume it's something you feed until it very nearly bursts  ;D maybe some kind of.... waterpig??? just a wild guess here
Title: Re: Edge 2 - snippet discussion
Post by: kikucat on October 07, 2009, 07:43:32 am
If it is a waterpig, is it used as a meat animal or does it have some other function?

It did mention fins... I would go with some kind of fish, or maybe a water dragon...

Post by: SylviaSybil on October 07, 2009, 11:21:58 am
Nellie -> Nessie -> Loch Ness monster?  That was the immediate conclusion I drew, although it's probably a coincidence.

It lives in water, can travel over land, loves tuna, takes fat as a compliment, and is kept domesticated by humans.  It's obviously the Edge's version of a catfish.  ;D

Hmm question, does anyone remember the snippet Ilona released a couple of months ago that previewed Edge 2? You know the one with the girl taking someone on a barge into the Edge form the Weird.

The gril was Cerise, the someone was William. And Cerise leveled a gun at him  ;D

Either way I'm looking forward to reading more about William.

hi kstrick.... so far we didn't get any info on that. but as it is unofficially called Edge 2 at the moment I guess it will either take place completely in the Edge or the Edge will at least play a  important part.  ;)

I'm so excited about book 2 - only 11 months to go!!

For some reason when I read Rolpie I imagined some kind of massive slug like creature and I have no idea why!

cool idea!

I have to admit the first thing that sprang to mind was a waterhorse, since rolpie and kelpie sounded vaguely similiar..... but I don't THINK it's a water-horse ;)

Post by: akla66 on October 08, 2009, 10:15:57 pm
when i frist thought of the rolpie i thought of an otter trye thing

Post by: LittleSybil on October 08, 2009, 10:23:10 pm
it gives the impression of a pig to me, with the fat comment and the tuna tapping, but it may be a loch ness like creature, at least i picture it with a nessie physique. a fat nessie, to say the least
"OMG! TUUUUNNNAAA!!" DrOOl

Now as soon as I read about the fin tracks on the bank I thought of mudskippers.  I think they are really interesting creatures and kind of cute.  I wouldn't want to kiss one or have it as a pet, but they are rather fascinating.    I could see it poking it's eyes up out of the water like little periscopes, "tuna did you say?". paW

New snippet!  Om nom nom.

What do we think?  Is the telling moment when William meets his lady love?  The hobo girl, aiming a rifle and a crossbow at each other? ;D Normal courtship is boring, of course, but I think a boat-jacking would be a little extreme even for the Edge.

Title: Re: Edge 2 - snippet discussion
Post by: SylviaSybil on October 31, 2009, 08:49:20 pm
One of the sentences Ilona posted as "the last sentence I wrote yesterday" was William growling "I'm going to kill that fish".  I assume this is the fish head they're talking about.  And given the first chapter snippet in which he hunts down a raccoon for digging in his trash can, I'm guessing that William takes wild animals' offensive actions personally, and wreaks vengeance upon them for their audacity.

My question is, will Cerise find this tendency to overreact as adorable as I do?

I've noticed that the writing and language of the edge series is more structured than the Kate series. Like the writing is more revised. The Kate series is more freestyle-ish. I wonder it that makes the edge novels a little harder to write.

I've noticed that the writing and language of the edge series is more structured than the Kate series. Like the writing is more revised. The Kate series is more freestyle-ish. I wonder it that makes the edge novels a little harder to write.

my personal opinion:

I think the impression you get mostly comes from the difference in story-telling.
All Kate Daniels books are told by Kate. All we get is colored by her, her impressions, her personal opinion and her speech, her POV. That way it might feel more 'freestyle'... because we practically are only along for the ride in her life. We only ever get to read what she suspect other people feel/think and so on.

I'm pretty sure that roughly the same amount of work goes into all books, writing and editing-wise. Of course, some things are easier to write and others harder... I can't speak for Ilona and Gordon regarding what is easier, but I'm sure there is a difference in the writing process itself.

The third person style of On The Edge and Bayou Moon offers other possibilities... The reader gets to see scenes that would be off-screen in a 1st person story.  We get to read pieces about Rose's grandmother, her brothers and so on.... and come to our own conclusions about the characters.

Roland, the villain in Kate's world, remains a mystery, whereas we read a snippet about spider, the villain in bayou moon and know we get at least one piece of the story from his POV. We get to see what drives him, what is important to him. To me, that's the beauty of third person stories.... 
(she said and writes 1st person herself :D )


you could probably post the question into the AtA-section if you want Ilona's answer??? I'm sure she checks this thread, too, but it would be easier in the Ask the Author-section...

Lark seems to be wild and untamed enough to imitate a shifter, even if she can't change. Maybe William can bond with her, and they can both learn to be more civilized (though imho, William is pretty awesome untamed weightS).

I love the new snippet. Poor William, it probably took a lot for him to ask Declan for him. And what a fun glimpse into how Jack is enjoying the weird (or at least enjoying the quick shift).  :)

This doesn't belong here but I can't make a new subject:

Everyone needs to go vote for Ilona and "On the Edge" at http://dabwaha.com/blog/ she's up against Charlaine Harris so it's going to be a tough fight.

Yeah I was too late for that one but they did really well only 10% behind Charlane Harris have managed to vote on the new ones for Patricia Briggs so wasn't a complete loss  shapEshifteR

I'm so lame--at first I was all "Who's this 'Lord Bill'?"  Seriously--I need help. 

Pst *wispers* --The beginning of Bayou Moon is included at the end of Magic Bleeds.

Yes, but is it  going to irritate me as much as the beginning if bleeds at the end of edge?

irritate as in:

OMG; where is the rest, where, where, where, why isn't there more, I need more!

:) probably, yeah :D

It's not as bad as it was with Magic bleeds, at least not for me. It's very good, and we find out what a rolpie is, but it's not as "irritating" as the Magic bleeds snippet. It probably will be different for others, and I'm sure closer to release my hands will be itching to get it, but for now I'm content to wait.
Title: Re: Edge 2 - snippet discussion
Post by: Kaelyn on May 19, 2010, 08:13:01 am
I agree it wasn't as bad, with the Magic Bleeds snippet it was like...omg..full stop...he did what!?! The tease for Edge 2 was good and intriguing and got me a little more excited about the book but it didn't have the same effect as the Magic Bleeds one.
Title: Re: Edge 2 - snippet discussion
Post by: Vinity on May 19, 2010, 11:25:30 pm
So I'm the only one who thought the tease for Edge2 at the end of Magic Bleeds was harder than Magic Bleeds at the end of Edge1?? I really love William.
Title: Re: Edge 2 - snippet discussion
Post by: 3mily on May 20, 2010, 06:11:43 am
Yes, but the dinner ditch was well anticipated.  After the tease it's more like a well anticipated slap in the face.

I've currently got it ordered through Amazon but I think with all the problems they had with Magic Bleeds not being in stock I might order it from the Book Depository as well I'm really looking forward to this book - love William!  <32
