First Chapter:

“There is blood under my fingernails. I wonder how many of my people I’ve killed this time.
I thrust my hands into the barrel beside the stables. The ice-cold water bites at my skin, but the blood clings. I shouldn’t bother, because it will all be gone in an hour anyway, but I hate this. The blood. The not knowing.”

I’ve been post-poning this read for a week now. I don’t want to be disappointed, and frankly, I want something that is quick to read. I think I’d end up reading this slowly– the writing sounds amazing!
