Oh, I'm so happy to hear about the Guido Parola thing! Now I just can't wait City of Swords, it will be too awesome. And I have to wait like... two years? Plus the translating thing! Blah, that's gonna be long long time.
I just read City of Secrets, and I loved it! I was quite afraid about reading it, 'cause I thought I wouldn't like it so much (because there's not so much about Guido Parola) but that was okay, it was fantastic even without him (and the little part with him was great!).
And 'cause they haven't translate City of Ships yet, I ordered it in English. It will take like 6-10 days to get it! Can't wait it. That is the book with the twin, right?
I've never been good at waiting.
I think I'm gonna read City of Swords in English too before translate version.
Btw, I know what fanfic you mean! It's great.
