Sentence of the Day: The Faerie Thorn

The troll was so ugly that the bottom half of Man Donaghy wanted to run away, but the top half of Man Donaghy was so desperate to get rid of New Wife Donaghy that it made the bottom half stay put.

The Faerie Thorn and Other Stories, by Jane Talbot

By the above, you will have deduced (correctly) that self finally got to the end of The Magician King. The novel started out strong and held self’s interest until about 4/5 of the way through, when Julia’s trauma began to get tiresome. And then, without warning, her story turned nightmarish. This was not the end self had envisioned for a character who was so badass she literally could have wiped the floor with Quentin.

Stay tuned.
