4/5 stars

When you start reading this book, you meet Derek, who is escaping from something that we don’t exactly know anything about yet. Then he comes to a familiar sight and there are flashbacks to give us a clue into what is going on. The author has written a really great story about family and loyalties, which is rather complicated but really fun to read. Once the book starts to introduce us to even more people, including Derek’s relative, as well as Chandra, it starts to remind you a bit of the first few episodes of Game of Thrones. The main characters are enjoyable and deep, which you don’t always find in this type of book. Fantasy is not my favorite genre, but I felt this book had some likable qualities, mainly, the way the story keeps transitioning, like scenes from a movie. Even if you don’t normally like this type of story, this one may interest you.

See this? The original purpose of this was actually to prevent the tiles from falling into the wall, because there's nothing behind them. "Ziploc Bag Patch Job" by J. Madeley, documented by me.

But there was an unintended side effect, and a good one. Ever since that bag's been put there, we haven't seen a single drop come from the below documented thing:

20151002_161630

Try to imagine it: shower water formerly of unknown origin (moisture from the pipes, we wondered?) splashes into the tile holes, collects with all the damp and rot and whatever else is inside the walls or directly below the tub, and then begins to saturate the recently redone popcorn ceiling of the dining room below. This results in the phenomenon "Dining Room Ceiling Hole", documented by me. Pieces of decaying popcorn treatment and the occasional droplet constantly threaten to fall into food on the dining room table that you're about to eat.

Fortunately, a couple of people have come by to take pictures and make a quote. I think the second guy came around because the property manager didn't believe the first guy, but that whole shower section of the bathroom needs to be re-tiled after new drywall is put in. Then the dining room ceiling, all water damaged sections replaced and I suspect they'll try to put the same old popcorn treatment over top.

Not seen: due to Samsung camera phone malfunction, you don't get a portrait of "bathroom sink dripping directly into a large pot", so that you always have to check the pot and see if its contents need to be dumped into the toilet. That'll be a pipe and faucet replacement.

Edwin pauses a bit to tap his recently-cortisone-injected shoulder, hoping his team won't recreate the minor injury from which he just returned when they mob him at home plate.

Getting down to work when my laptop screen went grey-checkers and basically seems dead now. Very scared. Some things are backed up, some not. I'm using the basement tower right now. Can't really afford for this kind of thing to happen.

I love my book, and know that I have written what I would want to read. That’s not my problem. My problem is that I view myself as an unusual person, so there are still those readers to worry about--there is no way I can feel fundamentally secure in the idea that I’ve written a book anyone else in the world wants to read, beyond a few sympathetic beta readers who are generally friends and family. And so as I wait for reviews, I’m bracing to be told in a really scathing way that I’m an over-hyped simpleton who, through the charitable good nature of others, managed to pay his way to publication and publicity so that he could inflict his mediocrity upon others.

After a couple of turns, the tapers were dead, but some form of brilliant lighting was at the end of the forked tunnel that was bone dry in this last section. It seemed to provide adequate lighting for this last leg of the journey. He kept making his slow way along until his eyes adjusted to the level of illumination, letting him know that a floor stone here and here stuck up from the others, and there was not much effort put to making it look like any proper mortar lay in the cracks around such stones.
He navigated around them and felt the walls, and he learned more with his hands than with his eyes; here were some cavities in the walls, where rope appeared to be wound to a level of tension that could not likely be sustainable in the long run; here were dusty clubs, like the clubs every rider carried to strike things that didn't need to be cut, laying flat and level with the rest of the wall. Tibor suspected he understood the nature of this dubiousness: you stepped on one of the false stepping stones, and then some catch holding the rope tense would be released, and then a club would swat you in the face. If you stumbled around in pain, you would probably step on the other stones and get swatted by all of them.
While the gang lacked the resources to build their own tunnels, they evidently had no problem modifying derelict things to their purposes.
