What People are Saying About This

Andres Tijerina

"No other history of the area has approached the broad interpretation of this book as it weaves this intensive study of La Junta so closely into the international trends and events taking place in Texas, Mexico, and the United States. . . . The writing is witty, bold and enticing."

Sunrise Characters: <p> James Ravencrest: <br> Black hair, stormy grey-blue eyes. Brave, kind, and thoughtful; the perfect prince... well, almost. If his father found out about his secret trips to the Shadows to get away from boring castle life he might just disown him. <p> Jenn Ravencrest: <br> Dark, auburn-red hair, golden eyes. James's adopted sister. Even though she has grown up in the palace, she has never forgotten the Shadows where she was born. Having recently found out about James's travels she considering making him take her with him. She does care about her adopted brother but she keeps dreaming about the Shadows... Blackmail anyone? <p> Kate Astertree: <br> Cinnamon brown hair, vivid green eyes. Very, very pretty with a dazzling smile and the razor sharp wits to use it. Sarcastic but funny. She and Luke's families have hated each other for as long as anyone can remember and somehow, Luke makes her either want to laugh or punch him. Due to their family history, she has decided to stick with punch him. (She's mine, I know, sorry. Right of creatorship) <p> Lily-Anne Astertree: <br> Kate's twin sister with the same brilliant smile. Fun-loving and outgoing with a mischevous sense of humor. Not many people have ever met could tell them apart and using this fact to her advantage has always been fun. She and Kate are very close. <p> Luke Parillian: <br> Sandy blond hair, blue eyes. Easy going and likable with a certain roughish air. Enjoys teasing Kate because he knows it annoys her. One of the few people who can (usually) tell the twins apart and this is only because Kate seems to hate his guts. This doesn't bother him though. He considers her a possible friend... eventually. <p> Quinn Vallehart: <br> Curly, light brown hair, brown eyes. Dark and serious but capable of being quite charming when he has to. Very protetive of his little sister. He has a grudging respect for Percy but doesn't really like him either. <p> Lucy Vallehart: <br> Very long, curly, light brown hair, chocolate brown eyes. Quiet, kind and somewhat shy but with a definate stubborn streak. She has a little crush on Percy, who is unlike any other boy she knows. <p> Creating your own characters: <br> 1. They must be somehow related to an existing character. (Ask first, don't just announce that you're someone's cousin or whatever) <p> 2. You may not create your own Thieves Guild character, but you can get accepted into the Thieves Guild in-game. <p> 3. Unless your character becomes a Thieves Guild member or is assisted by someone else, no border crossing. <p> Shadows characters at the next unused res. (sorry, ran out of room)
