Tokens Drying and "THE CONQUEROR'S SHADOW"

So right now I am working on experiementing with a bottle cap locket and a new design for a pendant/necklace but while they dry I have been reading The Conqueror's Shadow by Ari Marmell.

Now, normally I really stray away from Fantasy/War stories because of all the weird location names and new world rules kind of stuff but the characters and dialogue are so well developed and they really drew me into the story pretty quickly. It took about 50 pages until I felt I got a good grasp of the world/locations and since then the plot has just been awesome. I'm still working on the book and I had been trying to read only 1 chapter a night to kind of draw it out more but I don't know how many chapters I flew through last night while tokens were drying...

The book has ogres, demons, witches, vampire-like creatures and all sorts of goodies and all of the different elements are really introduced very well. Heheh, I can't stop bringing up the dialogue enough though... It just makes me laugh out loud sometimes... :D

So hopefully I will be posting some new designs around early next week. In the meantime, check out The Conqueror's Shadow if you are looking for an enjoyable read. I will probably make a post after a finish it.
