Ahh, the final day. This was a lot of fun. Although today was a little bit harder. I’m not one for collecting quotes, so it took a little digging to find one. Thanks one last time to Lizzie at Stellar Kitten Book Reviews for the tag.
- Thank the person who nominated you.
- Post a quote for 3 consecutive days (1 quote for each day)
- Nominate three new bloggers each day.
Today’s quote comes from one of my favorite series, The Seven Realms by Cinda Williams Chima. This quote is from the second book The Exiled Queen (2010).
“And, like a fool, she kissed him back. Kissed him in a way that would leave no doubt about the way she felt about him. Kissed him because she knew the chances were slim she’d have very many kisses like that in her lifetime.
Which is a sad thing when you’re only seventeen.”
For those of you who don’t like insta-love this is the series for you. It pretty much takes them two books to fall in love and then two more to finally admit it to each other. Han is still one of my favorite characters, even after all of these years. I may have to reread this series again soon.
Summary from Goodreads:
Haunted by the loss of his mother and sister, Han Alister journeys south to begin his schooling at Mystwerk House in Oden’s Ford. But leaving the Fells doesn’t mean that danger isn’t far behind. Han is hunted every step of the way by the Bayars, a powerful wizarding family set on reclaiming the amulet Han stole from them. And Mystwerk House has dangers of its own. There, Han meets Crow, a mysterious wizard who agrees to tutor Han in the darker parts of sorcery—but the bargain they make is one Han may regret.
Meanwhile, Princess Raisa ana’Marianna runs from a forced marriage in the Fells, accompanied by her friend Amon and his triple of cadets. Now, the safest place for Raisa is Wein House, the military academy at Oden’s Ford. If Raisa can pass as a regular student, Wein House will offer both sanctuary and the education Raisa needs to succeed as the next Gray Wolf queen.
Everything changes when Han and Raisa’s paths cross, in this epic tale of uncertain friendships, cut-throat politics, and the irresistible power of attraction.
