It isn't often a meet a human who excites me. Patricia Rose in one of those select few. Bear in mind I have lived for many centuries, and I count these beings on one claw. I do think Patricia's affinity for imaginary characters has promoted this bond, and Hershey and I have become fast friends.
If you read only one book this year, I urge you to read this one. I have seen several apocalypse's in my time, but this is the most entertaining.
