Mom came in to check on me. She sat on the end of my bed and we talked a little. But there wasn’t really much to say. She was married to Val. And I couldn’t bear to be around him.

I knew that the stuff they teach you in school about magical hygiene and how all magicians are psychopaths is just grown-up nonsense like if you never kiss anyone you won’t get pregnant (you have to wonder about adults sometimes; it’s not the kissing that does it).

Anyone who reads fairy tales should know never to let a magician keep his wand . . .

She and Val looked at each other. It was like something in a cartoon. I swear I could see the hearts and flowers rushing back and forth between them like on a golden sunbeam. It was kind of cute. It was kind of icky.

. . . I cradled it, like I would a half-grown puppy at the shelter who doesn’t understand that its ghastly ex-owners dumped it on the street for the crime of being a puppy.

its name had originally been Witchhaven. They’d changed it to just Haven after they cut the magic gene out of everybody in Newworld – and _witch_ become a word you didn’t use in polite company. (If you had to say anything, you said _magician_.)

he doesn’t take any crap from _anybody_. This would be okay if he had a less all-inclusive definition of “crap.”

Addicting, as all McKinley books are. A good story with a fascinating idea and division of the world. It feels very full circle, and finally has a decent combination of a werewolf.

This is a really great book with unexpected surprises! I read a lot of teen supernatural books and I am really enjoying this one so far!
