Maria had lived her whole life preparing for an adulthood of silent service with the nuns that raised her. She'd heard of wizards, how the power they used made them something other than human, how the people blamed them for everything, but she'd never really thought she'd meet one. There were only one hundred in the whole world, and she was the least important person around.It'll be interesting to see what happens in reality as I try to actually tell this story!
Until one night she's whisked from her bed by the Birdsong Wizard, and set up as the long-lost princess of a kingdom far from her home--a task she's spectacularly ill-suited for, and when she fails, Birdsong is left with a girl he doesn't need, and she's left with a Wizard who doesn't make any sense.
As she tries to figure out how to escape his house, she comes to know who he is and why he's doing what he's doing, she uncovers mysteries that define him--but also the world she's been brought into, and when dark magic from others creeps into her sunny new world, she's forced to decide whether it's a cage after all. Or the key that unlocks the whole world.
The Penguin Drop Caps series features bright jewels of book covers, each with an illustration of the first letter of the author’s last name, starting with Austen, Bronte, and Cather. The last batch of letters--X, Y, and Z for Xinran, Yeats, and Zafron--has just been released....
These editions double as decorations, and convey a sense of nostalgia for the tactility and aesthetic power of a physical book and for a centuries-old tradition of beautiful lettering.
Utterly contrived topic sentence revealing pretty much every flaw of structured essay writing. Therefore, supporting sentence invoking source that exists only in the bibliographies of other cited material (pp. arbitrary to arbitrary + 5). Contemplative question?

While working for Entertainment Weekly, Flynn made a second shift of writing for herself at night. She stopped and started several novels over the years, but it wasn't until she truly cared for the people she was writing about that she could complete the experiment of writing a book....
It was a very good lesson, which is: don't let the outside voices tell you what you should be writing. You've got to write the book that you're supposed to be writing, not write the book that you think people will want to read or the book that will sell better or the book that the critics will like more.
It's the most dramatic prelude to the climax in any action movie: The woman who has captured the hero's heart is in danger from the villain. Suddenly, the stakes are way up--not only does he have to beat the bad guy because he's a detective/knight/secret agent/rogue cop on the edge/Jedi/post-apocalyptic road warrior/Spider-Man/etc, but he really has to do it now, because the bad guy has his special lady friend. You've seen it in a lot of movies.
