  1. “Away with you!” He strode to the edge of the stand. “Worthless son of a dog.”

  2. "A sense of desolation fell over him when she turned to go, but she did look back."

    I love that it's narrated from a male and female point of view!
    I really, really want to read it, I have a thing about chinese culture, their language and traditions... it's all so... pretty, almost magical.
    "She stood her ground at the center of the swarm, wielding a blade in each hand. The swords flew in a whirl of motion. "
    And a woman with a sword? Now that's just PERFECT! ;D

  3. "Without mercy, she came at him with the swords while he was doubled over. He hefted his blade up and parried once and then again. God’s feet, she was fast." It's not always that we see scenes of men in helpless states, LOL.

    The heroine looks very powerful and independent, and that does it for me. Can't wait to read it.

  4. "But those startling eyes had looked at him as if he was something more than an animal."

    I loved that line! I really love books that have more than one character as narrator. It gets you inside of their head and helps you better understand how the characters think and feel

  5. "Hazel eyes, like the turning of autumn leaves"
    I love that sentence, it is so discriptive.

  7. I liked this one "All the years on this side of the world and the only phrases he had at his command were bawdy insults and a smattering of pillow talk."

  8. I liked:

    "The woman had given him her food…which meant the drug was meant for her."

    It makes me what to read more and find out why someone would want to poison her.

  9. I liked, "He had forgotten that irrational pleasure of being distracted by a pretty girl." :)

  10. I liked this one:
    “Xiè xie.” He mumbled his thanks as he took the food from her slack fingers. Any words he knew would be inadequate for this moment.

    Thank you" I'd really LOVE to read this book

  12. Ryam knew the rules of status. As a foreigner, he was the lowest creature on the ladder, a hair above lepers and stray dogs. It was one of the reasons he skirted the backcountry, avoiding confrontation.

  13. How did I miss this?! But I am here now and I liked this one

    He fought against the blackness that seduced his eyelids downward, but the ground felt really, really good.

  14. "She fumbled behind the padded cushions of her seat, searching frantically for her swords. She had put them there herself, needing some reminder of home while she was being sent so far away. The way another girl might find comfort in her childhood doll.

    Her hand finally closed around the hilt. She tightened her grip to stop from shaking."

    I just got done reading Eon and Eona last month and this reminds me of it

  20. "She held her bowl out to him, extending her arm with great care as if approaching a wild beast. The steam from the rice carried hints of ginger and scallions to his nose and his stomach twisted in greedy little knots."

    I love oriental style books
