I had to take a few days to make this easier because, well, this was my favorite kitten from the litter, so it broke my heart. Poor Diego, the kitten I nursed when we had to bring them inside not so long ago, died on October 17th. Being that he and his sister look so much alike, we thought he had gotten up and moved when an orange cat ran away from the front of the car as we came up the driveway. He hadn’t.
He will be sorely missed.

“I can’t sleep,” she whispered, crawling into bed with me. I woke up cold, clutching the dress she was buried in.
Chaos by Taylor Longford
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I was fully expecting this book to start off right where the last one left off, which would have been the norm for these novels. But it didn’t, and for that, I am grateful. It backed up about two or three weeks and started off with the kidnapping of Torrie. And then we got to see exactly what they had to go through to survive and why he was willing to give up so much to see her safely back at home.
I liked Torrie. She was so different from all the previous girls that she really stood out, but in a good way. It was easy to see why Chaos came to love her. The only thing I really did not like about her was that she was always so negative about herself, then bam, it was suddenly gone. Other than that, it was really good.
Overall, another amazing read from Taylor Longford. It’s a quick read for anyone who doesn’t have a lot of time to sit and read, but still loves a good book. I’d highly recommend this to anyone who loves this genre.

I was having a pleasant dream when what sounded like hammering woke me. After that, I could barely hear the muffled sound of dirt covering the coffin over my own screams.
You know…there is nothing as tempting as a locked door. And if Nadia were a regular thief, she would kneel in front of it with her lock-pick and start working on the tumblers. But she was not a regular thief. She stood before the door, certain she was alone, and called upon her powers to sense cracks that allowed wind to pass through. That was all she needed. The door was fairly solid, but it did not fit the frame well. She smiled. She could slip through that without a problem.
She stepped back and closed her eyes. Her powers hummed inside her, building up at her core then spreading through her. She smiled as she dissolved into a hazy cloud. She focused her form on the crack between the door and the frame, and she slipped through it with ease. She stayed in her misty form until she finished scanning the room for booby traps. She also eyed the treasure as she floated around.
