I love the fact that all of the characters are a mixture of good and bad. Every human is flawed, and every "lost soul" has some redeeming qualities. It makes me so happy that this comes shining through in..." Read more of this review »

“Your fey cousin here has the miraculous ability to hold his liquor--and mine, and yours, and the king's, and half the country's, I expect.”
Alethea Kontis, Enchanted

“If you did not indulge in fantasies, how else would you know if you were living an interesting life?”
Alethea Kontis, Enchanted

“Velius--so who is she? no wait, let me guess. skin of the finest porcelain. hair of the softest silk. a voice like birdsong, a smile like sunshine, and a mouth that would sate your brightest and darkest wishes
Rumbold-- You've m-met her?
Velius--oh yes, my friend. we all know her. we've all pursued her. some of us have even been lucky enough to have her. we've been drunk on her sin, become fools of her favor. she might have borne a different face each time, but her name was always the same. Trouble”
Alethea Kontis, Enchanted

“First time's a fluke; second time's a coincidence," said Velius.
"Third time's tradition," finished Erik.”
Alethea Kontis, Enchanted

“No," Wednesday agreed. "You have tortured with silence. You let her grieve for a soul she did not lose, mourn a heart that should not have broken, and berate herself for betraying the man she loves...with the man she loves. It can't be 'true' love without the truth, Rumbold.”
Alethea Kontis, Enchanted
