As with other Bennett works I've read, I want to call this novel "wonderfully flawed". It's an engaging story - a bit slow, but not distractingly so, and had a lot of political and divine mystery elements that I enjoyed. The world is rich and full of ...more

Gemini Cell by Myke Cole
"This is Myke Cole's best book to date, and it's really not close. He's improving by leaps and bounds with each novel. For those of you who haven't tried him yet, this is a great place to start.

“There's a slope down toward evil, a gentle gradient that can be ignored at each step, unfelt. It's not until you look back, see the distant heights where you once lived, that you understand your journey.”

“As a child there's a horror in discovering the limitations of the ones you love. The time you find that your mother cannot keep you safe, that your tutor makes a mistake, that the wrong path must be taken because the grown-ups lack the strength to take the right one...each of those moments is the theft of your childhood, each of them a blow that kills some part of the child you were, leaving another part of the man exposed, a new creature, tougher but tempered with bitterness and disappointment.”

“I’ll tell you now. That silence almost beat me. It’s the silence that scares me. It’s the blank page on which I can write my own fears. The spirits of the dead have nothing on it.

Mark Lawrence, Prince of Thorns

Michael J. Sullivan

“There is no sound more annoying than the chatter of a child, and none more sad than the silence they leave when they are gone.”
