natsgirl1: SWIMMING FOR THE LIGHT

(Recommendation 04/14/15)

This story picks up several years after Dead Ever After (ignoring the Coda). It examines the toil that being without each other has meant for both Sookie and Eric, neither of whom had a good experience following their parting. Heart-wrenching at times, this story is sometimes “hard” to read, but I couldn’t stop. It’s one of those stories that you stay up way too late with–continuously telling yourself “just one more chapter and then I’ll go to bed.”  (Needless to say, I didn’t sleep much the night I started it.)  In addition to an emotionally well-drawn Eric and Sookie, this story has one of the most “unique” Bills I’ve ever seen.

    Glad you liked it :), I’ll make sure Natsgirl sees this 🙂 She does have a sequel planned but she’s taking time off for American Android’s contest and to just breathe since Swimming To the Light WAS angsty.

    Great to see this post-DEA story featured. It deserves it for great writing, great character development and good plots. Things start pretty hellish (post-DEA what else can one expect huh?) esp. for Sookie and it is not an easy road for any of our favourite characters but eventually things DO get better (though never easy). There is a lot of drama but the angst is not excessive (I am angst-allergic and the rash wasn’t too bad this time….). Definitely recommended!

    ha ha ha… most I do but I haven’t been gathered the strength to read the sequel to Back & Forth or Tenterhooks… Maybe it is an intolerance rather than an allergy since I can deal with small/weak doses… I am most definitely Appius-allergic for sure…
