A play plays with the imagination that a movie can never do, I suppose. At first for me it was just a stage. But as the play went on, it transformed into the world of Aslan, that great mysterious lion that guided four children from Earth as they emerged from a magical wardrobe into a world peopled by talking animals. It has been a long time since I read the books of Narnia. I almost forgot it. The play made me remember how magical it was.

Matrix of Destiny is funny, corny, ridiculous, and sexy. I had crazy fun reading this SciFi romance series. Its heroines may not be the brightest bulbs in the planet and the heroes not often be aboveboard with their intentions but they made me laugh. They also provide me with that element I hardly see in stories these days, the pursuit, the efforts of men to convince their beloved they are worth loving. An old-fashioned concept, I know, which is probably why I rarely encounter it these days in the books with I read, which are mostly urban fantasy and paranormal romances, yet I believe it does add suspense and tension to a story, so I don't think this preference is only due to personal values but also to a preference for stories that keep me on suspense.

Oh, my. This series is hot. I have read paranormal romances before but Kresley Cole got me addicted. I don't really understand how it happened, so maybe writing about it will give me insights. The world of the Immortals After Dark (IAD) is populated by a variety of powerful immortals, from vampires to Lykae, witches, demons, sorceresses, Valkyries to gods and goddesses.

The black-ops government agency called Sigma broke Justin Delgado, trained his psionic talent and turned him into a killer. Then he escaped and joined the Society, an underground resistance movement of psions determined to use their talents to bring Sigma down. Competent, cold, and cruelly efficient, he's the best operative the Society has, a legend among the psions who fight a shadow war against an enemy that owns the courts, the press, and the police. Feared even by his own teammates, hunted by the government, and too damaged to feel anything but clinical rage, he is utterly alone-until he meets Rowan.
