Dragonswan (Dark-Hunter, Bk 1.5) :: Sherrilyn Kenyon

I have had this book on my TBR for over a year. I've noticed it cycling off and on WL with a handful of wishers. This last time I looked it had 75 wishers.  Granted I am not sure when the last time I looked was, but I can't imagine it being over 2 months since I looked a the wishers. Whats up with the book that all of a sudden there are so many wishers for a 96 page book??

Beats me!!  I really didn't like it.  I really don't like anything dragon.  Don't know why---------just don't.  I usually like shifters, but some I just have a problem with.  I forgot all about her writing this book.  I really liked most of SLK earlier work.  I would read it and make a decision to see if you want to keep on a permanent basis.

I've meant to post it all along, just haven't gotten around to that series. I just found it odd that an older, little book went from none or less than 5 to 70+ wishers in a matter of months. Just wondering if anyone knew anything happening that might make people want to read that specific book (or novella since its so short).

don't know - maybe just a bunch of new people starting to read the series?  plus the little one probably doesn't get posted too often.

note that if you're one of the people looking for it, and you just want to read the story rather than collect a copy, Tapestry is where the story was originally printed, and the WL is much shorter.

That's it.  It's a short story in the series by Kenyon.  I had a copy of it, but swap it once I picked up Tapestry.  Sometimes you want a complete set.  Like me.  :)

It's a ridiculously tiny book--like the horoscope booklets you see at checkouts at the grocery store.  I haven't seen it in print since well--I just checked my archive and I purchased about 5 or 6 just to post here and sent them out in January of 2006.  Since they've been out of print awhile and are such a weird size that may be another reason you don't see them posted often.  There were 2 others issued around that time that were that teeny size (Immortality and one by Jayne Castle).  There all on my keeper shelf since I figured they'd not likely be reissued in that form.

It is actually posted fairly often, 8 in the last week, which is one of the reasons I found it odd that the wish list would just balloon up like that. I was thinking something on one of the current releases referred back to that novella or something.

I ordered the book from Amazon, expecting a book. WHat I got was a pampalet. I paid 7.00 for a book that no bigger than a pamphet. Talk about hitting the roof.

I read that book long time agoand i sold it it to 1/2 price book store. That is where i use to go to buy book before a friend of mine told me PBS now  Iam here for good.    I also have not seen or herd must about her christams book eighter.  i  forgot  when it came out.   That dragon book is kind of crazy book, whilethat is what I think. I brought new for like $3.25 or something like that.
