Argh. Mixed feelings I guess. For a long long time, this book didn't really catch me at all. Loads of rehashing, loads of build up, loads of setting up the conflict for the whole arc without much actually happening. Yeah it's awesome the Kyo are fina ...more

Josh Lanyon
“They kissed, but it was a gentle kiss and there was no urgency. They were tired and they were...healing. They had time. And time was the most beautiful word of all.”
Josh Lanyon, Come Unto These Yellow Sands

Courtney Milan
“You don’t expect love.” She shook her head in confusion. “This is the second time you’ve said that. Is this going to be like one of those dreadful novels where you warn me not to fall in love with you, and if I do, then you’ll turn into Bluebeard and try to lop my head off? You’re handsome. You have all your teeth.” She looked into his eyes and lightly touched her hand to his cheek. He grew very still. “I can offer you no promises. If you’re any good in bed, I might fall in love with you. If that is going to be anathema…”

“No,” he said swiftly. He looked away from her, and when he spoke again, there was a slight rasp to his words. “No. That would be perfectly…unobjectionable.”
Courtney Milan, The Duchess War

Josh Lanyon
“There was nothing like working law enforcement for a few years to give you a jaded view of human nature. No matter how well you thought you knew someone, no one ever entirely knew anyone else.”
Josh Lanyon, Fair Game

Scott Lynch
“I’m not beholden to the confirmation of your prejudices; to be perfectly frank, the prospect of confining the female characters in my story to placid, helpless secondary places in the narrative is so goddamn boring that I would rather not write at all.”
Scott Lynch

Josh Lanyon
“Last night they hadn’t even fucked. What the hell was the point of protective custody if you weren’t at least going to get to have sex with your protector?”
Josh Lanyon, Fair Game
