weave master

4/5 Stars.

If you ever wondered what happened to young Danny Torrance after his fateful winter at the Overlook Hotel, this book is for you.

We meet Dan again in his 30s. Haunted by his childhood, he finds himself following in his father’s footsteps and turns to the bottle. Finally, after hitting rock bottom, he seeks the help he needs and joins AA.

Dan’s special ability—his shining—links him to a 12-year-old girl named Abra who possesses this same talent. But Abra is in danger. There’s a group of powerful vampires called the True Knot traveling the country, feeding off of the essence of children who shine—and they’re coming for her next.

As always, King weaves a masterful story rooted in the strength of its characters. While the True Knot itself is a fascinating creation that propels the story forward, Doctor Sleep is really about Dan and his personal demons as he attempts to evade the legacy of his father and create a healthy, meaningful life for himself. We can’t escape our past (or our genes, for that matter), but we can overcome them if we’re willing to put up a hell of a fight.

I loved most of this book, though I did find the epic showdown that it gradually led to a bit muddled and abrupt when it finally arrived.

Nevertheless, fans of The Shining will likely appreciate this anticipated follow-up.

A thought occured

Now I may be completely incorrect about this, But I believe I can accurately describe the positions that the mentors (vanguard, iron Lords, reefers) would be.

@ask-ikorarey would be the dungeon Master, weaving epic adventures and experiences with the help of @ask-lordsaladin

@ask-cayde-6 would be the half-elf rogue with high charisma but low wisdom and intelligence, basically making him “charmingly stupid”

@ask-eris-morn would be the elven wizard who dabbles in darker magic (such as necromancy and evil spells) who begrudgingly accompanies cayde on his adventures

@ask-lordshaxx would be the dwarven fighter who constantly screams “Fight!” Before going into battle.

@ask-thepostmaster would be the human cleric, constantly fretting over the material components of spells in order to keep the party alive.

@ask-petra-venj would be the human secondary rogue, who actually cares about her job and loves to steal and pick locks, all the while in search for a cure to her ailing queen

@ask-shiro-4 would most likely be a ranger, though often cutting up with cayde in jokes and stuff, all the while doing twice the work to compensate for cayde making puns all the time.

@dickgraysoff asked recently about what Jason Todd would read. It’s canon that he reads Jane Austin. He also reads business and marketing books, fashion, historical novels, fantasy, Sun Tzu, any and all philosophy, math theory, and so on. In short, Jason Todd reads. He reads everything and anything. He and Alfred had a book club before he died, they probably resumed it after he came back.

I should probably look for more canon Jason and books. Because learning is his one true love.
