Lightning on the Wave - Sacrifices Arc Series
INSTANT REC!!! This was by far the longest series I've ever read and I could not stop reading for almost the entire 2,977,182 words.

If you haven't read this fic yet I highly recommend you go now and begin reading, or save it for when you have a lot of time to read. I couldn't concentrate on anything until I finished and it took me weeks.

I'm using the cut tag because I have a month's worth of recs and I didn't want to kill anyone's bandwidth. :) I'm also about a month behind on updating the Ebook Library. But I think I needed the break. School for the semester is almost over but I'm going to take 2 classes in a 5 week period for Summer I so I'm not sure how that'll go in terms of time required? I suspect updates may be few and far between until summer is over.

Recs behind the cut! )
