Sometimes it only takes one sentence to know whether you want to read a book or not.  Which is why I flipped through one of my recent summer rereads (and one of my all-time favorite books) and chose 4 sentences at random. I hope they pique your interest in this extraordinary tale. Here they are:

1. Ned sighed, "I met a girl yesterday morning."

2. "I think you ought to go now," the man said finally. "You have blundered into a corner of a very old story.  It is no place for children."

3. The soul within her, each time she's summoned, alters her a little, makes her behave differently, which is why and how her desire, her need--over two thousand six hundred years--can change.

4. He thought of her, he thought of Ysabel.

Happy Reading!


  1. Now that I've read Tigana and loved it I can't wait to read more Guy Gavriel Kay books. I'm planning to read The Lions of Al-Rassan next but I'll think about reading this one too.

    1. Ysabel is definitely worth reading. The characters are all so great.

  2. I like the second sentence you posted...and I am intrigued.
