...I feel ya...right there with you Lily....Jack is a secret crush that i still hold in my heart. 'Black House' just wasn't the same for me....
i'll always picture him as that brave, beautiful boy who risked everything just to save his mom. That's the boy i will always love.
Now I'm sniffling into my coffee, DJ. I liked Jack in Talisman (Black House was just meh for me), but I LOVED Wolf.This was the first book that made me weep. I adored The Talisman. And this passage bruised my heart.
"Wolf collapsed like a falling tree.
Jack knelt, turned him over. The hair was melting away from Wolf's cheeks with the eerie speed of time-lapse photography. His eyes had gone hazel again. And to Jack he looked horribly tired.
"Jacky--" Wolf raised a bloody hand and touched Jack's cheek.
"Shoot...you? Did he..."
"No," Jack said, cradling his friend's head. "No, Wolf, never got me. Never did."
"I..." Wolf's eyes closed and then opened slowly again. He smiled with incredible sweetness and spoke carefully, enunciating each word, obviously needing to convey this if nothing else. "I...kept...my herd...safe."
