Dara is definitely my favorite character. I love Noam, but Dara definitely has his own special place in my heart. My favorite character to write, though, was Lehrer. He just has so many layers and so many different aspects to his agenda and it was a lot of fun to write someone who had all these layers of meaning and intent to everything he said and did.(less)

Ex Scientia Ultio
From knowledge comes vengeance.”
Victoria Lee, A Lesson in Vengeance

“The question isn't whether magic is real. It's whether I can touch it without being consumed by it.”
Victoria Lee, A Lesson in Vengeance

“When I read books, the boundary between my world and others shifted. I could imagine other realities. I envisioned the tales so clearly that it was as if I lived them.”
Victoria Lee, A Lesson in Vengeance

“For if the modern mind is whimsical and discursive, the classical mind is narrow, unhesitating, relentless. It is not a quality of intelligence that one encounters frequently these days. But though I can digress with the best of them, I am nothing in my soul if not obsessive.”
Donna Tartt, The Secret History

“Does such a thing as 'the fatal flaw,' that showy dark crack running down the middle of a life, exist outside literature? I used to think it didn't. Now I think it does. And I think that mine is this: a morbid longing for the picturesque at all costs.”
Donna Tartt, The Secret History
