Quotes Edit

  • “'Even now, you think only in terms of the game. You are well chosen, little bird. Or are you a stoat?' Madame Spetuna bent forward, looking even harder at Sophronia’s palms. She was close enough for Sophronia to feel the woman’s breath on her skin. 'Give your heart wisely.' She paused a long time over one particular wrinkle. 'Oh, child, you will end the world as we know it.' Madame Spetuna swallowed and then turned Sophronia’s hands over and placed them, palm down, on the table. She leaned forward, pressing them into the tablecloth as though she might rub out what she had seen.” (Curtsies & Conspiracies, The 10th Test)
