And they're good. :)

From Phebusa.fr: "I devoured this book in two days..."
Pour terminer, je préciserai que j’ai dévoré ce livre en deux jours (j’accuse aussi les chapitres trop longs qui ne permettent pas de faire de pause…), ce qui témoigne de monintérêt pour l’intrigue.

“Reading one book is like eating one potato chip.”
Diane Duane, So You Want to Be a Wizard

“Footsteps in the snow
suggest where you have been,
point to where you were going:
but when they suddenly vanish,
never dismiss the possibility
of flight...”
Diane Duane

“In Life’s name and for Life’s sake, I say that I will use the Art for nothing but the service of that Life. I will guard growth and ease pain. I will fight to preserve what grows and lives well in its own way; and I will change no object or creature unless its growth and life, or that of the system of which it is part, are threatened. To these ends, in the practice of my Art, I will put aside fear for courage, and death for life, when it is right to do so—till Universe’s end. I will look always toward the Heart of Time, where all times are one, where all our sundered worlds lie whole, as they were meant to be.”
Diane Duane, So You Want to Be a Wizard
