Chapter 1

"Helen was gay,"  Julia Taylor said.

"And you're not"  Ann Grove asked.

"Well, Im not so much anything right now."

"Sexual experimentation is not obligatory at fifteen, you know.  Infact, it's not obligatory at any age.
"No, its not that; it's just ... I think Helen likes one of my teachers."

"That's different:  You can't act on that attraction until you've graduated and turned eighteen.  If, of course, Julia is also attracted to her."

"But Edward wasnt Jan's teacher, ever.  And he certainly had boy fri9ends before".

"That was politics."

"It's wrong to win a Nobel?"

"No."  There was a brief pause:  "Jan's mother is also a high-profile celebratory, at least in the Netherlands."

"She just writes poetry"

"She's the Court Poet at the Hague.  That's the equivalent of Poet Laureate in Britain and in the States.  Last year, during the fuss about public funding of the arts,  the First Lady announced she had invited a number of poets to dinner at the White House.  The Poets responded that they would come, and recite some  of the political poems they had written about the President, which was an abuse of hospitality.  The First Lady responded by trying to limit the topics the poets could  write about.  In my opinion, that was a really stupid  move.  Nothing sets a poet's back up like telling her what to write.  Jan's mother wrote two limericks One about the First Lady cancelling the dinner and the other about the poets.  Neither limerick translates into English. 

"However, there was a fuss,"  Ann continued.  The State Department got involved, the royal family got involved, Jan's mother offered to write another limerick, the ambassador from the Hague got involved. 

"In any case, Jan and Edward decided to be law abiding until Jan's eighteenth birthday."

"I didn't know that, about the poets."

Stephen Warner: To start off, I am thoroughly impressed. The writing style is somewhat unique, and the plot seemed to move at a nice and steady pace. However, I was not expecting this to be a vampire book! I am usually not one for novels about vampires, but I was pleasantly surprised! You wrote with such grace a...

littlebunnypoopoos: Omg this was so amazing! The ending was a little bad and predictable. But otherwise, I need a second book or I'll die :D The character development was excellent and the whole romance, action, and suspense was superb

Jason Phang: More, I want MORE! Your stories are keeping me from games and (gasp) even sleep! Each chapter brought fresh hooks that I willingly wolfed down (pun intended) and I just couldn't bear going to sleep not knowing what happens next to Lindsay and Wayne. I also loved how the epilogue was done. Excelle...

Satabda Chatterjee: Each and every charecter develops during the whole course of the journey and keeps secretly love for the princess . However the way that writter expressed each situatuons that the princess faced quite relevant and keeps the suspense always at the end of the chapter. . . .which makes the reader m...

Catherine Kopf: Wow! This was a really great story. I really enjoy reading fantasy, so it didn't take long for me to become invested in the book and its characters like Jacob. I really liked your writing style, and it seemed to flow very well. The descriptions that you used for your world were also created n...

JWalker: I loved this story from start to finish! It flows at a really nice pace and the story world feels so real. The fight sequences are a treat especially when Isanfyre is training to become a warrior. I found the names really cool and thankfully easy to pronounce. Personally I have always struggled w...

Alex Rushmer: This was not what I expected, but I enjoyed it a lot Malfoy was always one of the characters that I liked a lot, so I like that a lot of this happens between him and Colette. I read the first couple chapters, and I enjoyed your writing style and am excited to see where you take this story. My com...

Marijana1: The melancholy present throughout this story has the power to influence and etch into the minds of the readers, to stay there and refuse to leave even after they have finished reading the story. This is a deep, powerful story, making the readers wonder about everything – about love, about their e...

Erin Crowley: The concept here is really strong, but the execution is definitely lacking. Tenses, grammar, etc are all off, with at least one or more errors per 'Page' on my phone. The writing style is almost broken- sentences move into each other awkwardly, and are filled with an excess of "filler words", lik...

ernbelle: When I first started this story I was a little unsettled by all of the information that appears in the prologue, and wasn't sure if I would continue. However, I am very glad I did. The plot was very well thought out and really interesting. There were not any page breaks or markers to acknowledge ...

Lauren Sanby: This is an excellent story. Very gripping and keeps your attention throughout. Hoping the author is writing a sequel because I'd love to read more about Rhi and Andreas and find out what else Rhi is able to do with her powers.
