Rules of the game

1. All entries must be the title of a fictional book.

2. Take the latest valid entry on the post. Determine which vowel was used the most frequently in that previous post.

3. If there is a tie in which vowel was used the most frequently, take the vowel whose first occurrance comes earliest in the entry title.

(For example, if the last entry was "Black Order" by James Rollins, since A, O, and E equally occur once, in that order, and no vowel occurs more than once, you take the A because the A comes first in the title).

4. For the sake of this game, a "Y" is always a consonant, even if it makes the sound of a vowel (like in the word "spy").

5. All entries must contain at least 1 vowel.

6. The vowel that you came up with in steps 2 and/or 3 is the vowel you are forbidden from using in the next entry. Note that you are only forbidden from using it in the title. The Author's name may contain the forbidden vowel.
