I would say The Winter Door as well, for much the same reason. And for a slightly different way of looking at it, I think it was good that she started having relationships with real people in The Winter Door. In the first book, it was mostly about her relationship with her dogs (whatever form they were in), and about her missing her mother (her only real human relationship), but in the second book, I really liked that she started reaching out to other people (Logan and her uncle), even though she was subconsciously afraid to, as she didn't want to be hurt again.
Which book would you say is your favourite? I like Billy Thunder, but I think I prefer The Winter Door. I think that may be because we see more of Rage's life in the "normal" world, including her growing relationships with Logan and her uncle.Firefall
Me too! I think the point I just mentioned was one aspect of her growing up, although of course there were a number of other things.
I loved how Rage seemed to grow up so much between the first and second books.Min
When I finished it last time, I was wondering if she might manage to achieve what seems impossible, and be able to return permanently to Forks? I hope so, anyway!
Elle is so brave and loving. The growth from the first book to the second is amazing. I hope we see her in the third, on one of her 6 monthly visits back to valley perhaps?deb
