So I decide to preorder The Crown of Stars this last week, just incase it came in early. The last book came in a week early at Barnes and Noble. Well, on Friday this last week I get a call from B&N telling me my book is in. Wooooo Hoooo I dance around the house giving all the kids kisses. Im finally going to learn who the heck Alain is!!! Only draw back to this whole thing... I have to wait until Wednesday to pick it up... no money until then. *sighs* I can wait... just a few more days... *sighs* I hope!
