“The truth is the most desirable woman in the world and we are the most jealous lovers, reflexively denying anyone else the slightest glimpse of her. We betray her routinely, spending hours and days stupor-deep in lies, and then turn back to her holding out the lover’s Mobius strip: But I only did it because I love you so much.” (3%)
OKAY. Wow book. Way to start blowing me away from the get-go.

“A mantle took up one wall, and I saw amusement that he’d nailed a painting of burning logs in the empty space where a real fire ought to have been. A small sitting area surround the fire place, reminding me for a moment of home.” (pg 87 ARC)
Almost too late did I see the beam of sunlight crossing his path.
“No!” I gasped, throwing my weight into Tristan, knocking him down sideways into a narrow alleyway.
I eyed the beam of sunlight that was still too close for comfort. “The sun.”
“Everyone knows that trolls turn to stone in the sunlight,” I said.
His astonishment faded and to my horror, he started to laugh. Reaching out one arm, he waggled his fingers in the sun. “Oh, the stories you humans come up with,” he gasped out, and my cheeks burned. (pg. 264 ARC)
So, for some reason, this first teaser made me really laugh. The image of it. In case you’re wondering, they’re underground, no fires allowed. I think that’s why I love it. Also, testimony to Tristan’s personality, ha. The second one, was just a really cute moment, and a good reminder to not always believe everything you’re told 😉
Everything can be made better with a good book or some relaxing knits. 😀 Find me on IG @kimberlyh12 or on Twitter @enervated.
