Reading is my way to escape reality.
Writing is my way of expressing the things I could never say out loud.

One must always be careful of books, and what is inside of them, for words have the power to change us. -Tessa Gray (Infernal Devices)
It was books that made me feel, that perhaps I wasn't completely alone. -Will Herondal (Infernal Devices)
Fiction is truth, even if it is not fact. If you believe only in facts and forget stories, your brain will live but your heart will die. -Arthur Blackthorn (Dark Artifices)

Tapestries hung from the long walls displaying everything from dragons to fairies, to war pictures. At the heart of the throne room sat a glorious, golden throne. Everything was what you would expect in the castle of a great King and it all looked bright and welcoming. But as soon as one stepped in, one would feel an immediate shiver...

The scowl on his father's face did not help settle Miles’s nerves. It was the first time he was allowed to sit next to his father while the court was in session.
The guards opened the large wooden doors, revealing two hooded figures.
“Your majesty,” announced one of the guards. “These two have requested your council.”
“Very well,” the king replied. The scowl slowly vanishing off his face with obvious difficulty.

Outside the day was hot, although the sky was covered in a thin blanket of gray clouds. I leaned back into the old couch, that now served as part of our fort. Nadia, my 10 year old neighbor, sat next to me. She is three years older than me. But she was one of the...
