I loved this book! I seriously could not put it down. I got angry when I was interupted at work, I got snippy when I had to set it down at home... It was just not pretty. But the book! It was absolutely addicting. I love it when the chemistry between two characters is tangible to me like it was in this book. And Quigley! I cried... And I never cry...

All in all... Compelling read. And I'm eagerly awaiting the second book to be delivered to the near by library! (Libraries... Did you know they let you take books? For free??) :D

Quotes Melyssa Liked

Y.S. Lee
“He laughed, then became serious once more. "Mary............"
The expression in his eyes set her heart pounding. "Yes?"
Twice he began to frame a sentence, and twice his voice seemed to fail him.
And she thought she understood. What could he possibly say to her now, when he was on the verge of leaving forever? Even something as simple as asking her to write to him carried a distinct sort of promis, the type of promise he was ten years and a half a world removed from being able to make.
She forced a polite smile and held out her hand. "Good luck, James."
Regret-and relief-flooded his eyes. he took her hand, cradling it for a long moment. "And to you."
It was foolish to linger. She slid her fingers from his grasp, turned, and began to walk away in the direction of the Academy. She'd gone about thirty paces when she heard his voice.
"Mary!"
She spun about. "What is it?"
"Stay out of wardrobes!"
She laughed, shook her head, and began to walk again. She was smiling this time.”
Y.S. Lee, A Spy in the House
