Novel on your Nightstand:
Who/what are you currently reading?
Wrath Of A Mad God by Raymond E. Feist

Whom would you cast as your Main Characters/Hero/Heroine if your book became a movie?  Summer Glau as Princess Maura  and Taylor Lautner as Dorak

Princess Maura is the beloved and spoiled daughter of Queen Abisola and her Consort Iasos, but an ill wind is blowing their way. From the distant east nomadic tribesmen known as the Bhuttanians have unified under the leadership of Zoar, a powerful chieftain who is bent on building a vast empire. Queen Abisola has little time to transform her peaceful, agrarian country into a fighting military unit able to take on Zoar’s experienced warriors.

Queen Abisola must sacrifice her daughter to the Dinii, a bird-like people who will adopt and train Princess Maura as a warrior who will lead her people against Zoar. For years, both the Dinii and Maura’s people train to withstand Zoar’s inevitable onslaught, but they never anticipated fighting the powerful black magic of Zoar’s evil Wizard.

Will Princess Maura lose the love of her life as she struggles to save her people? Will her country be able to survive where other countries have crumbled before the tyranny of Zoar? Or will the Dinii betray her county to the warlord Zoar?
