Wonders of the Lost Age isn't as average as the three stars I gave it might imply. It's actually a pretty good book, and most of the problems I have with it aren't with the book itself, but what it did to the Exalted line and the mood it conveys.

“I love snow for the same reason I love Christmas: It brings people together while time stands still. Cozy couples lazily meandered the streets and children trudged sleds and chased snowballs.

Rachel Cohn, Dash & Lily's Book of Dares

“Yeah but I don’t know how to make myself go there. Maybe it might never happen again. AAAAAAAHHHHHHHHH!”
