Twisted Fate by Ilse V. Rensburg
“Magic in words?” He asks, running his fingers along the spine of an old blue volume with gold edging.

“I’ve never needed words so much before. I never knew what power they held having been written. I know of the power of thought and action. This magic is new to me, so perhaps you’re right.”

Twisted Fate by Ilse V. Rensburg
“Who wants to read about the same old mundane human lifestyle over and over again? Wouldn’t you rather read a book about a fantastical creature than Cathy's office love affair?”

Time Torn by Ilse V. Rensburg
“The sun has collapsed against the vast expanse of the darkening ocean. Soon the turquoise sea will be completely black like a void. I hate the ocean at night. It has me thinking about hopelessness and loss. The red sky a watercolour as the thickening clouds leak together.”

Sleight of Hand by Jason Hes
"Loved this one!

"Sleight of Hand" was a glorious trip down through history to secrets in dark corners and the ever-present hint of danger. In this case, danger comes dressed to the nines and is out to seduce almost as much as it is to cause some mayh" Read more of this review »

“The old crone smiles crookedly and sighs. “There is more to magic than darkness, my dear.”
Ilse V. Rensburg, Sleight of Hand

“Demento's laugh is wildflowers and bourbon on an autumns day just before winter comes to take it all away.”
Ilse V. Rensburg, Sleight of Hand

“My soul has been severed in two, like Yin and Yang, these parts interlace. Only, both are beasts.”
Ilse V. Rensburg, Blood Sipper

“That's the whole trouble. You can't ever find a place that's nice and peaceful, because there isn't any. You may think there is, but once you get there, when you're not looking, somebody'll sneak up and write "Fuck you" right under your nose. Try it sometime. I think, even, if I ever die, and they stick me in a cemetery, and I have a tombstone and all, it'll say "Holden Caulfield" on it, and then what year I was born and what year I died, and then right under that it'll say "Fuck you." I'm positive, in fact.”
J.D. Salinger, The Catcher in the Rye

“Becoming fearless isn't the point. That's impossible. It's learning how to control your fear, and how to be free from it.”
Veronica Roth, Divergent

“The world is changed because you are made of ivory and gold. The curves of your lips rewrite history.”
Oscar Wilde, The Picture of Dorian Gray

“Once upon a time,an angel and a devil pressed their hands to their hearts

and started the apocalypse.”
Laini Taylor, Dreams of Gods & Monsters

“Once upon a time, there was only darkness. And there were monsters vast as worlds who swam in it.”
Laini Taylor, Dreams of Gods & Monsters
