This is the forum for discussion of the book GARDENS OF THE MOON.

Discussion is restricted to that book.


Do not ask for spoilers for later books. If you need spoilers go look in the later book forums - AT YOUR OWN SPOILER RISK. If you break this rule your post may be deleted and you may be publicly ridiculed and made to feel shame.

Do not post spoilers for later books. If you break this rule your post will be deleted and you may be warned and possibly banned.

Do not post blocked spoilers for later books. Inevitably these will spoil someone. If you break this rule your post may be deleted and you will be warned and possibly banned and/or executed and then banned.

If you are not sure use the spoiler code [ spoiler ] text to be blocked [ /spoiler ] <- but remove the spaces before/after the brackets. The spoiler code is your friend. The spoiler code is good. When in doubt, use the spoiler code.

If you wish to discuss something raised on this forum in relation to something that happens in a later book, go to that book's forum. If you stick to this practice everyone will be happy and there will be much rejoicing.

If you wish to keep part of a discussion in this forum to raise in a later book forum, cut and paste it. If you stick to this practice everyone will be happy and there will be much rejoicing and possibly feasting.

RAFO can still be a spoiler. Use your thinkymeatz. Consider whether posting 'Read And Find Out' in response to a question, amounts to telling people that the question is answered in a later book. This is a spoiler. Spoilers are bad. Avoid doing this. If you stick to this practice everyone will be happy and there will be much rejoicing and possibly feasting and/or group sex, some of it possibly involving other people. Okay, not likely going to be any sex as a result of this but even so...

If you see a spoiler, report it. The modgods are here to deal with this sort of thing. WITH GREAT VENGEANCE AND FURIOUS ANGER. or something. But the modgods are here to try and ensure that peoples' enjoyment of the books isn't ruined. Okay 'ruined' is strong, but if a major character was going to die, say, for example
Spoiler
, most readers wouldn't want to know that. Help us, help YOU.
