This is Follow Friday, hosted by Parajunkee's View

Today's Question is: 

The Blogger Apocalypse made me a little emotional. What is the most emotional scene in a book that you have read lately?


So apparently I missed the great Blogger crash. I've been working like crazy the past few days and not checking blogs, including my own. Apparently everything is in order here, I hope all of your blogs are well.

In terms of emotional writing... here's a couple of completely different examples:

I've been doing a bit of re-reading of older Mercedes Lackey books recently, and the end of Knight of Ghosts and Shadows made me laugh and smile uncontrollably.

On a darker note, yesterday I read Brecht's "The Good Person of Szechwan" for work. It was a beautifully sad play, and I'm really glad I had occasion to read it.

I'm off to do more work...talk amongst yourselves ;)

Hopping through. I've never read Mercedes Lackey. I'd really like to. Her books are so well known.

Welcome Ms. C, Hey Alison!

Mercedes Lackey was one of the most popular authors among female genre readers when I was in high school. She tends to write adventure/fantasy with romantic subplots. There is often a bit of angst and sappiness. I have to be in the right mood for it, but her books can be great fun.

Her "Valdemar" series is her most well known, and she also wrote the first books that I read that could be considered Urban Fantasy: a few semi-linked series: "SERRAted Edge", "Bedlam's Bard", "Diana Tregarde". This was before paranormal romance was a sub-genre, when Urban Fantasy just meant that it was set in modern day plus elves/magic.
