found this book very exotic, and different than others Tiggy s story was so charming The Scotland setting, and Spain setting was told perfectly I felt myself as if shivering from cold in remote nature of highlands And sometimes, among the vibrant environment of gypsies The historic look at the Gitano Payo relationship was very original I haven t read this in many historical novels The take on the situation of Spain during Second World War was also a very good addition to the story The book is so rich with historical aspects, characters, or landscape that I don t know where to start I cherished every page Riley also has broken the pattern of forbidden lost loves theme that was quite heavy in previous books The romance in this book was a side story, it was not overpowering at all, which I loved I was a bit scared at first that the book was 750 pages, but I never got bored and I wish it never finished This is TRUE historical fiction, with all the richness of the times, full of culture You can feel the vibe of times in your bones as it s told beautifully and vibrantly If you like books that takes you to another country, another time, another family, another life, this series is definitely for you And this was an extraordinary sequel Thanks so much to NetGalley and the publisher for a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review flag 53 likesLike see review View all 7

from Pa Salt s unexpected death is trying to deal with the revelations from the letter he wrote giving clues to her birth, she takes solace in the Kinnaird Estate the wildlife, and a reluctant attraction to the Laird Dr Charlie Kinnaird The secret of happiness is to try and live in the moment Although these are books that can be read as standalones, because each sister has had her own adventure in general, I encourage you to make the commitment to read The Moon Sisters predecessors just so you have the full background of everything, but also so you can get the full picture of just how well this author crafts a story Family is everything We go from Scotland present day back to Granada, Spain 1912, and as the story unfolds journey to Madrid, Barcelona, Portugal, Argentina and the US, three generations of the Albaycin women feature heavily, especially in relation to Tiggy and her origins, and once again everything is pulled together with historical facts playing a part, from the Spanish Civil war and World War Two As well as a, in depth look in to the Spanish Gypsy community, their persecution and the magic of Flamenco Trust your instincts they will never let you down. I have to say that in a couple of aspects this was my least favourite of the series, the story while as exceptional as its predecessors for me was let down by a couple of characters who I struggled to find anything nice about or any empathy for, as their stories progressed, and the romance in this one is absolutely non existent I felt no connection between Tiggy and Charlie, they spend hardly any relevant time together so trying to then see them as a couple with feelings for each other as the story drew to a close didn t really work for me.That said, these are not short books, and I still found no struggle in its reading, I just didn t find myself as emotionally connected to Tiggy and her story as I have with her sisters so far.Zed Eszu, makes himself known in this one too, and I am interested to see how his involvement with Electra in the next book plays out The bigger picture in the series in regards to Pa Salt is definitely started to show a little clarity with a few hints in this book leaving you wondering I just hope I can warm to Electra because the closing chapter of The Moon Sister was told from her POV and I can t say it was love at first sight, but I need to see how the author closes this series out though with hopefully the final two books, so I will definitely be checking her book outC generously provided via Netgalley, in exchange for the above honest review

I think it was, what ever date it was it was a long time ago It still is on pre order because as much as I love and appreciate these digital review copies I m still dying to have the pretty hardback edition in my wee grubby little paws Having read all of Lucinda s books it is still this Seven Sisters series that captivate and remain dear to me the most, and for everyone who are still waiting for the 1 st Nov release day in the UK, I can wholeheartedly say it is so so so worth the wait And on the subject of waiting, waiting for Electra s story The Sun Sister maybe next will be an even longer wait for me having read this one early Tiggy, the Moon Sister, has always felt a strong connection to nature and animals and she begins her story in the beautiful surroundings of the Scottish Highlands helping care for the deers and wildlife with her elderly friend Sadly as that door closes Tiggy is offered to travel with the Scottish wildcat s and take a job on the Kinnaird estate overseeing the cats care and future breeding program.As with the other sisters, Tiggy received a letter from Pa Salt with details of where she was born and how to find her birth place if she chooses to do so Whilst she is at Kinnaird Tiggy meets an old gypsy, Chilly, who has been a resident on the lands of Kinnaird for as long as anyone can remember And it is this meeting along with other situations that arise that give the free spirited Tiggy the gentle push to travel to her birthplace and people in Granada Spain.It is there she learns her story and the story of her people taking us all back through time with her to 1933 Spain and the history of the gitano people and Tiggy s once famous flamenco dancer grandmother, Lucia.Weaving together past and present seamlessly Tiggy comes alive on the pages and it is impossible to not feel connected to her story in some ways and even though I ve said it about previous books in this series, Tiggy s story will stay with me for a very long time I will definitely be re reading this book once I receive the hardback edition on publication day and I have no doubt in my mind that I will enjoy it as much reading it a second time.The book leaves us with a tantalising snippet into the next sister, Electra, and how her story begins We don t really know much at all about Electra as the other sisters haven t given us many clues about her but none the less I am sure her story will be as equally fascinating as her other sisters before her And as for the last book in the series owing to the fact they don t have a seventh sister my imagination has been running riot and with any luck Electra will be the one to unlock some of that mystery for us Now the long wait for book number 6 and to finally find out just who the real Electra really is The Moon Sister will be published on 1st Nov 18 in the UKAs I said earlier, I am extremely lucky and honoured to receive advance reader copies of books to review and would like to take this

one, while I found the Gypsy heritage parts interesting the main character of Lucia was so horrible that I didn t really care what happened to her, and then the story of Tiggy s actual parents was really rushed and only mentioned as an afterthought Seriously though Lucia who constantly criticises her father for abandoning her mother to fuel his ambition and then after she has a baby she leaves it with the rest of her family to go to the USA to dance The other thing that is a big annoyance for me in books now, and it happens in this is when characters don t tell people the whole story It drove me mad that Tiggy didn t just tell Charlie that Ulrika had told her to leave Scotland and to mind her own business in their marriage Instead she skirts around it and makes excuses instead of telling the truth It happens so often in books now and sometimes feels like it s a way to make the book seem longer.How does Tiggy not know who Zed is and not know he s trouble straight away Just found that irritating, I would certainly know my sisters ex boyfriends and know which ones to stay away from without having to phone and ask her Also she doesn t like him from the start so just tell him straight away to do one Felt again like this plot point was brought in and dragged on a bit long to bulk the book out.My last frustration was the constant mentioning of Tiggy being vegan but then eating Shortbread, Christmas Cake and other items made with dairy products, as that is her weakness No vegan slips from their lifestyle even to have the occasional Scottish treat I know that is nit picking but it would have been better if she d just been a vegetarian and not needed to make excuses for eating certain things.The last chapter is a short introduction to Electra and this is the book I am looking forward to the least So far not a single thing mentioned about this sister in these books makes me interested to hear her story I will read it but not sure if I ll be rushing for the next instalment this as much as i have the rest.Overall I enjoyed the basis of the story, there were parts that could have been taken out and others I d have liked to have read of My least favourite of the series so far, nothing has beaten the second one for me yet, maybe I just feel I m like Ally than the others, which is why I enjoyed it flag 6 likesLike see review View 2 comments Jan 13, 2019 Theresa

at last, with the thought of my roots extending back over five hundred years, something stirred in my heart, as I began to feel the unbroken invisible thread that connected us all The Moon Sister by Lucinda Riley is the fifth book in the Seven Sisters series It s the story of Tiggy, who up until now, has been a bit of an enigma, not featuring all that much at all in the previous four novels Consequently, I went into this novel with no real preconceived notions about who she was and what to expect a refreshing change, particularly as the two previous novels about Star and CeCe were both reasonably well developed, character wise, from the very beginning of the series Unfortunately, the next sister, Electra, who will feature in book six, has been fully fleshed out and she s not a character I m looking forward to, the sneak peak at the back of this book confirming that she is typical of my least preferred character type the wasted celebrity who just wants to be loved I m hedging my bets that out of the whole series, my two favourite sisters will remain Maia and Ally, from books one and two respectively You might wonder why I m even referring to the previous books, much less the next that hasn t even been released, but this series is a fairly comprehensive and lengthy one, making it all the difficult to assess each instalment in isolation.I really appreciated the historical thread of this novel Set primarily in Granada, the story was like a moving element, making its way through the years and the exotic locations in equal measure Barcelona, Madrid, Portugal, all through South America, up into North America, and then back to Granada, in Sacromonte, where the story originally began The atmosphere was richly detailed, the eras recreated with historical significance My favourite parts were those set in Sacromonte, as I found the history of this place particularly fascinating I have previously read a novel set in 15th century Granada, Court of Lions, so my interest in this part of the world was already piqued But whereas Court of Lions was about the last Sultan of Granada, The Moon Sister is about the Granadian Gypsies who settled in Granada after the Christian conquest of the city in 1492 The story here begins in 1912, where the descendants of those original Granadian Gypsies are living in caves built into the slopes of Cerro de San Miguel on the edge of the Camino del Sacromonte This neighbourhood exists outside the walls of the city, and has done so since the 16th century It is filled with poverty, its inhabitants marginalised, living on the fringes in a manner that differs little from centuries gone by The Sacromonte offers views of indescribable beauty the towers of the Alhambra, the white slopes of the Albaycin, the Valparaiso valley and the River Darro For the gypsies inhabiting this area, their isolation was a curious mix of self imposed to protect their racial purity and centuries of being shunned The poverty was profound It s hard to imagine what it must have been like, dwelling in these caves Google doesn t offer much insight as they ve all been restored into fashionable boutique dwellings now for tourism, and despite tags of authenticity being applied, I highly doubt they really looked like what is being represented today The heat must have been extreme, this is Spain after all, and the climb for water, up and down mountain paths It almost beggars belief But there was such a strong sense of community and culture, despite the apparent hardships Anyway, I found this entire history well rendered, it truly captivated me I love how historical fiction can bring such far flung worlds to life I paused and looked up at the Alhambra It had stood there for almost a thousand years, solid as the earth it had been built upon It had watched the trials and tribulations of us humans from the Moors of a millennium ago, to Isabella of Spain, to me and I suddenly thought that Ally was right, and that our lives were so fleeting compared to anything taken from the earth In the valley below me, trees had stood there for hundreds of years, and even after they were pulled from the earth, had provided furniture from their sturdy bodies that still remained long after the people that had sat down on them had passed on I had expected hoped for a bit detail on the Spanish Civil War, but our characters fled on the first night, so it touched them in a second hand kind of way Later, after the war, of the devastation was alluded to when Maria returned to Granada, a mention of the clearing out of the gypsies from the Sacromonte caves and the fate of her own family, but the story swiftly moved on The focus was primarily on Lucia, the flamenco dancer, who was Tiggy s grandmother, and I have to say, a truly ridiculous human being Her ignorance shone as brightly as her dancing talents I had to keep reminding myself she was an adult, her behaviour was childish in the extreme Take this instance as an example, where a five star hotel in New York refuses her hospitality Lucia, they might not be so happy about what you did to their expensive wooden cabinets when we were last here Well, how else was I supposed to grill my sardines I needed wood for fire she insisted Trashing hotel rooms, 1940s style But really, she couldn t have just called room service and asked for grilled sardines Lucia was a character that erred on the side of too much She was filthy, always dirty and stinking, her living space as well as her own person She was pigheaded and ignorant, selfish and overly dramatic I kind of hated her, but fortunately her supporting cast, for the most part, were much appealing, particularly her mother Maria, her brother Pepe, and her lover Menique I was able to tolerate these sections with Lucia at the helm in part because these other characters seemed to be fully aware of exactly what Lucia was really like, yet the gypsy mantra of sticking together meant that they put up with her behaviour and just soldiered on Lucia had never received an education, could not even write her own name, and at the age of ten, she was taken from her mother by her father and pressed into child labour as a flamenco dancer while he played guitar Much was made of her extraordinary talent, but by the time she reached adulthood, her talent was all she had to offer She was a pretty toxic person, truly ignorant, not even comprehending the world outside of dancing enough to realise that a war had broken out right on her doorstep Bombs were raining down and she just kept on dancing, risking the lives of everyone around her because she was too stupid to listen to Menique s warnings He also wondered at Lucia s level of emotional maturity Don t worry Menique, I was wondering the same thing myself There was a fair bit of hocus pocus gypsy woo woo in this novel, probably a bit too much for my liking, but each to their own Tiggy was a solid character, strong in her principles and steady in her focus The ending to the contemporary storyline was a tad clich , and certainly a little too convenient, and I felt Tiggy acted a bit too much out of character for it to really fly I don t want to spoil anything but if I say Frasergate here, you ll know what I mean when you get to that part Anything at all to do with animals and Tiggy s interaction with them was beautifully done I really liked that whole Mother Nature aspect of Tiggy s characterisation It was also very nice to see Maia and Ally pop up in this novel for a bit of sisterly interaction with Tiggy This character cross over solidified the sisters as a family unit, as opposed to six individual women going their separate ways to search for their true family One thing though that is wearing thin is the whole mystery surrounding Pa Salt, not just his death, but even his life I find it really hardly to believe that none of the daughters know what their father did for a living That just seems a little far fetched And I m highly dubious about the adoptions of these girls in the first place Rich single man, just happens to be in the right place at the right time, anywhere in the world, to take home a baby He makes international adoption seem rather easy But my real bug bear here is the allusion that he may still be alive This has been drip fed to us since the first book, and I felt we were on the verge of actually finding something out in Tiggy s story, only to have the plot turn 180 degrees away from further elaboration Managing a mystery over a series this long is a delicate balance but my patience is beginning to wear thin Don t even get me started on the missing seventh sister.I did enjoy this novel, but it s not my favourite out of the series Essential reading though if you are travelling along this Seven Sisters journey like I am This book felt longer than the others, but a check on the page count confirms this is about my reaction to it than the actual amount of pages I am looking forward to this series wrapping up, but as yet, I m not sure if it has one book left or two another mystery Three and a half cups but I m not able to

Kinnaird Estate for a number of years and whilst the way he chooses to live his life, might seem strange to many, his sixth sense knows that one day he will meet a girl and send her back home that girl is Tiggy.That home is Granada, Spain.And so Tiggy and us are taken back to 1930s Spain, the Spanish Civil War is not far away But in the shadow of the Alhambra, Sacramonte, is a village in the caves of the hills where the gitano s gypsies have settled after being driven out of the main city.Here is where Tiggy learns of another life, another world, a place where her spiritual side makes sense and her the vibrations that not just come from here senses but the feet of the flamenco dancers.The most famous of the area being Lucia, Tiggy s grandmother.The author, transported me back to this place, the darkness of the caves, the problems that the gitanos faced being on the outer edges of the city, of society, of religion, of what was considered normal behaviour But showed a community brought together by all that makes them different, the culture, the music and of course the dance.Words are lyrical, they can take you somewhere, they can form pictures in your imagination But in this book, the description of the flamenco dancing and the music, but the flamenco especially, just resonates off the page You can feel the vibrations of the feet, as they stamp and form, as the beat increases, as the arms move in almost synchronicity to the feet, as the dress is moved in time to the music and as the appreciative audience are held spellbound by such a display.And so the story knits together as Tiggy unpicks her past, finds out where she came from and why she ended up being looked after by Pa Salt I have had my ideas since the very beginning of this series about Pa Salt and in this book, as Tiggy is the spiritual one, she begins to pick up thoughts and feelings, that any of the other sisters, but everything just seems out of reach Only time will tell as the series moves on.From Scotland, where estates, struggle to survive, in a less feudal world, to the city and heat of Spain, where those lesser classes are kept on the outskirts and treated with contempt and suspicion To the mystery of the unknown, to that sixth sense that perhaps we all have when all we have to do is trust in what we believe and what we see.I think like all the previous novels, I have learnt so much about something perhaps I did not know enough about and also been transported to places I will perhaps never get to see This is for me the beauty of dual narrative books such as these The past is place which we should not forget because it is very much what forms our future as it is for the six sisters in this series of novels.I wait with great anticipation for the next book and

crumbling grand hall where the owner is a bit grumpywell to start with There s a search for the legendary white deer tooI enjoyed the Spanish sections of the book the most as these were the most emotional and atmospheric.The story of the flamenco and the caves of Granada was spellbinding and Lucinda wove a wonderful tale of discovery and determination here There, the story moves to New York and Buenos Aires and it s a tale of many emotions with a fine cast of characters and a plot which moves in time to the rhythm of a classic flamenco finaleIf there was one thing which stood out as a nit picky negative, it was the not always realistic Scottish dialect and in the Spanish sections, the overuse of terms of endearment such as querida Maybe just me, but this jarred and threw me out from the story Not so much as to spoil it too much mind I really enjoyed this story but didn t feel as connected to Tiggy as I have the other sisters for some reason although this did improve once she went to Spain It is a lovely story though and takes on the entire Sisters series that one important step forward to the next one and then the overall ending flag 4 likesLike see review Dec 29, 2018

Seven Sisters series The Moon Sister It seemed like only yesterday that the brilliant Lucinda Riley launched this exceptional series and yet now I find myself having completed another wonderful, gripping and heart wrenching read with only two books to go before all will finally be revealed With every book that Lucinda writes I find that I am reeled in right from the very first chapter and that once you start you just can t stop reading So much so that if you have other things to do that they get pushed to the side as you read on or if you have no other option but to leave the book down it becomes frustrating to be away from a story that has captured your heart and imagination.Some readers may be daunted by the fact that this book is over 700 pages but I wasn t in the slightest It just means time to indulge in such brilliant writing and an excellent story with so many twists and turns The Moon Sister is really a just one chapter kind of book and then you find, oh I ve read another 150 pages or so without even realising the chapters are flying by as you get drawn deeper and deeper into the story I was so eager to begin this story but on another level I was reluctant to do so because I know I would read it so quickly and then have another year long wait for Electra s story I suppose I should have stretched it out a bit further to prolong my enjoyment but in all honesty that was impossible to do because pure and simple this book is unputdownable despite it s hefty weight.In The Moon Sister our attention turns to Tiggy, similar to her sisters she is coming to terms with the death of her beloved Pa Salt Even though Tiggy herself has a feeling that all may not be as it seems surrounding Pa s death and readers themselves may have already thought this based on things from previous books and even from little clues that surface every now and again in this story Tiggy perhaps is the most sensitive of all the sisters and one who has a very special connection with nature She adores animals and wants to dedicate her life to them Tiggy s intuition has served her well throughout her life and she is certainly very spiritual and connected to the earth and all those around her She hears things and what she hears forewarns her and helps her with things in the future She has a special talent but where has it come from and what can she do with it To learn of her true heritage she must follow the instructions left by Pa Salt in a letter and as did four of her sisters before her she must travel to discover the roots of her heritage How she came to be and also why was she given up and came to live with Pa Salt on his estate Atlantis in Switzerland with five other adopted girls Lucinda Riley this time takes us to the isolated Scottish Highlands specifically to the Kinnaird estate recently inherited by Charlie Tiggy is tasked with settling wildcats into their new home but also Charlie has further plans for how she could be helpful given her love of animals and her genuine enthusiasm for conservation In complete contrast to the highlands is the setting of Granada and the caves of Sacromonte which stand in the shadow of the impressive Alhambra palace The author moves effortlessly between the past and present allowing the reader to enjoy a strong dual narrative Normally I prefer one timeline over the other but here I was riveted by both Tiggy s story in the present and that of flamenco dancer Lucia in the past The highlands in the depths of winter were cold, isolated but magnificent in their own way Lucinda captured to perfection the essence of the estate and what was trying to be achieved there by Charlie and his team In Granada and as Lucia s journey took her to South America and beyond, I felt the heat of the sun as the gitanos Spanish gypsies and the lowest of society struggled to survive and make their way through life overcoming one obstacle at a time if at all possible.In the present Tiggy is very much at a crossroads in her life and unsure of her next step Is Kinnaird merely a stopping place whilst she ponders her next move or will it or someone exert some strange hold over her Tiggy had so much depth to her character that I m still not sure whether I fully understood her She wasn t clear cut in her viewpoints or ambitions and was quite often racked by indecision One thing for sure she was certain that the advances of billionaire Zed Eszu who rents the estate were very much not wanted I was patiently waiting as Tiggy put up with so much from him before she finally gave in and snapped Zed was an awful character, so domineering, controlling and he believed that because he had money he could do what he wanted and everyone would ponder to him I have a strong feeling that Zed coming to prominence here and playing a role means he is someone who will reappear in the future books and we need to watch out for him I was ever so thankful when Tiggy showed some courage and expressed her true feelings to Zed In doing so it gave her the push she needed to go out and uncover the truth behind her past and in the process she discovers a remarkable story of love, passion, dedication and selflessness.I loved the scenes set in Scotland as Tiggy becomes aware that all is not as it seems at the estate She became a mother figure to Zara, Charlie s daughter, who was clearly crying out for help, love and acceptance But Tiggy knew now was the time to journey into her past or all the answers to the endless questions she had would be lost forever Chilly, an old gypsy living on the estate provides her with the pieces to some of the puzzle which allow her combined with other factors to journey to Granada to seek out what has been waiting there for so many years One thing that sets The Moon Sister apart from the previous books in the series is that there wasn t as much of a focus on romance although it was still present It wasn t the dominant driving force behind Tiggy s desire to understand where she came from and I am glad this took of a back seat and only came to the fore when necessary.As for Lucia s story I was equally as enthralled as I had been with getting to know Tiggy I think it s brilliant the way Lucinda takes us back generations and years and the path to discovering the mother of whatever sister we are reading about is never clear cut She throws in so many twists and turns featuring heartbreak, devastation, tenacity, sacrifices and terror always leaving me open mouthed and shocked than once As we journey to Granada and beyond we become familiar with the hardships endured by the gitanos and how Maria has struggled to bring up her family in poverty in the Sacromonte caves Her husband Jose although a talented guitar player is nothing than a waster and a womaniser but it is with the birth of her talented daughter Lucia that their lives will change dramatically forever We are there with Lucia from the moment of her birth and follow her as her talent becomes known to all.Lucia bids to become the most famous flamenco dancer there ever was and she can perform in a way no other dancer can She feels the beat and the rhythm and has such a connection to the music Lucia is a character who has fire in her belly and it shows in the way she acts I thought she was incredibly selfish towards her family as her career was at the forefront of her mind She was ruthless and a hard nosed person I can t use the word hate when it comes to her but I really didn t like her or enjoy what she was doing to her family and those that loved her It was like she was a commander leading her troop and she wouldn t rest until she was fully satisfied, yet I don t think she would ever reach that point of satisfaction because of her restless nature and spirit Whereas Maria, I felt great sympathy for given all she endures and what happens to her family over the course of The Spanish Civil War and subsequently World War Two How it all connects back to Tiggy was fascinating to read as so many curve balls were thrown in and you find yourself shouting in glee if you got something right and then being left speechless as something you should have seen is revealed or else something comes from nowhere and you are left stunned.Simply put The Moon Sister is another fantastic addition to what is shaping up to be one of the best series I have ever read I have a sneaking suspicion that given Tiggy is the most spiritual sister that she will be the one to connect all the dots and discover what exactly is going on with Pa Salt As for that major plot twist at the end what does it all mean Also who is the seventh sister Will there even be a seventh sister Throughout the book I felt there were even clues being dropped than before and as the series nears its conclusion there is an overwhelming feeling of things starting to slot into place or that everything that has been set in motion is racing towards a tremendous finale.The jigsaw is coming together piece by piece but like that elusive piece that is often missing on the floor there is still plenty in store for us before that final piece can slot into place Do read all four before books before starting The Moon Sister as it will only enhance your reading experience even As for the sneak peek at Electra s story ah why does Lucinda do that to us I just wanted to keep reading on and on and I am kicking myself that that is not possible at the moment Roll on this time next year is all I can say and in the meantime I envy those that have the pleasure of reading The Moon Sister for the first

Grundstimmung, die in diesem Band auf den Spuren der Flamencot nzerin nur so vor Leidenschaft spr ht und mir das damalige Leben sehr nahe gebracht hat.Auch wenn es m glich ist, die B nde unabh ngig

aber von viel Emotionalit t, die Lucinda Riley wunderbar in den Zeilen her berbringt.Auch nach nun 5 B nden kann ich gar nicht sagen, wen ich lieber mag, denn jeder der Frauen hat ihren Ecken und Kanten, die ich sehr zu sch tzen gelernt habe Bisher war es in allen B nden so gewesen, dass ich mich mit der Vergangenheit der Schwestern mehr identifizieren konnte, als mit der Gegenwart, weil ich sehr gerne diesen geschichlichen Spuren gefolgt bin In diesem Band war es allerdings eher andersherum, was darin begr ndet lag, da mir die Geschichte um die Gro mutter Lucia stellenweise langatmiger vorkam, als ich es bei den anderen B nden epfunden habe Dies macht das Buch in meinen Augen keinesfalls schlechter, jedoch es gibt ihm eine andere Richtung, die ich bisher in den B chern so nicht nicht erlebt habe Und bei solch einer zauberhaften Protagonistin, wie Tiggy, habe ich auch mit dem Richtungswechsel keine Probleme.Nichtsdestotrotz warte ich schon wieder sehns chtig auf die n chste
