Wow, thats exciting! How are you liking Saudi Arabia? Is it really hot?
Here the temperature is getting to the triple digits, and its really humid. Two nights ago there was a storm so strong my parents woke up my sisters and I to stay in the basement in case the windows blew in. By daytime it was all clear again.
Anyway, I'm sure my friend loved the Philippines. I'd love to visit there!
You're welcome! :) I got a Shelfari account a few months ago. Around April I think...that can be considered new I think. So you live in the Philippines, huh? How cool! I had a friend who moved to the Philippines a few years ago, and then he moved to Turkey so I haven't heard from him in a long time. Anyway, how is it there?

DRACULA: HEARTS OF STONE
It’s a tale of romance, vampires and wizards oh my; delectable saga of red sheriffs protecting the innocent and punishing the guilty. Dracula must step up or the world will sink into an irreversible darkness.
“I was given this book to review and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I love Piers Anthony and his Xanth series, so to see him in this book was a thrill. It's nice to see Dracula in a "nice" light for a change and I can well imagine why he would be feeling so suicidal given that he has lived centuries. What could be new for him? Well, something is and I won't give it away. I can't wait to get the next in the series.”
The sequel Dracula: Hearts of Fire is now available.
The adventure continues as 12-year-old Jenny goes out in search of herself and to learn the ways of wizards. Dracula is happier than he has been in centuries but he senses that big trouble is on the horizon.
Novels by A. J. Gallant include …
