"If I am not well enough, I insist you attend without me," Alice said, glad that her inability to school her expression would be blamed on her nonexistent headache.

Lord Fenton--Charles Archibald Theler--moved his adolescent arms and legs as fast as they could go towards the small shed just past the tree line, not sure if he was running from the fire or from someone's notice of his proximity to the scene.

  4. I love the phrase "inability to school her expression" and I wonder what mischief Lord Fenton is up to at the beginning, when he is obviously a boy.

  5. The cover scene looks like the Hall of Mirrors in the palace at Versailles.

  6. Oh-oh. Who started the fire? And why isn't he helping put it out?

  7. It's a hit! I like the cover art as well. So, she has faked a headache. Why doesn't she want to go with him? Hope you're enjoying the book!

REVIEW:
I sorta hated the beginning.
Starts outs so dark that you can't really make anything out. Hard to know what's going on if you can't see.
It doesn't take long to get light though.
Thankfully.
Man, does the story ever pick up after that. I don't remember much about the original but this one is intense. Right to the very last second too.
Sydney is badass and shows it throughout. Can you imagine what it would be like if everyone thought you were o…

REVIEW: I loved the whole series, but especially loved this season as it wrapped it all up.  There were a couple of moments that were so incredibly tragic, but also a couple moments where the most tragic things couldn't have happened to better people. Take Sussy for example. God, how I hated that woman through the whole show and couldn't wait for her to get what was coming to her. Did she get it here? You have to watch and see! This is the season where you will sit on the edge of your seat, waiting to see who will win the kingdom. Does your favorite character prevail above the others? MIne d…
