The Grisha Trilogy Posters: Tim Borrmann as Nikolai Lantsov ‘The Privateer’
So I haven’t really had time to do much on my blog due to Orientation Week here at St. Andrews but, since I was going to the Art Society anyways, I got the opportunity to draw the Little Palace (one of my favorite settings). The building is based off of the Lakshmi Vilas Palace in India.
He leaned forward and wiped the tears from my cheeks with the sleeve of his own kefta. "If you tell me you cannot bear this then I will send you from here and you need never wear those colors or walk the halls of the grand palace again. You will be safe. I promise you that."
I looked up at him, not quite believing. “Safe?”
"Safe. But I can promise this too. You are a soldier. You could be my greatest soldier. And if you stay, if you can endure this, one day all will know it.”His face grew serious. “I can promise you safety,” he said. “Or I can promise to see your suffering repaid a thousandfold.” With the pad of his thumb, he brushed a stray tear from beneath my eye."You decide, Genya." - (The Tailor, Leigh Bardugo)

"No, Alina. You came here for Ravka. For the firebird. To lead the Second Army.” He tapped the sun over his heart.

This time, the Darkling had chosen to set me apart, and there was nothing I could do about it.
The truth of it rang through me. Like calls to like.

I love all of these.
I tried to turn away, but he reached out and took hold of my chin, forcing me to look at him. He was so close I could feel his breath. “There are no others like us, Alina,” he whispered. “And there never will be.”
I know I’ve been a little absent in the last few weeks, but I’m back and I come with gifts (sort of).
I was thinking that since I kind of forgot to do a post BEA giveaway (sorry about that!), that now would be as good a time as any to do a Labor Day/Post BEA giveaway. So what am…
I sought Morozova’s amplifiers for you, Alina, that we might rule as equals.
