Nehemia had dreamed of a court that could change the world, a court where loyalty and honor were more valued than blind obedience and power. The day Nehemia had died, Celaena had thought the dream of that court forever vanished.

But looking at Dorian as he smiled at her, this prince who was smart and thoughtful and kind, who inspired good men like Chaol to serve him …

Celaena wondered if Nehemia’s impossible, desperate dream of that court might yet come to pass.

                                     Tessa thought of her dream.
        She took a deep breath. She did not know if what she was about to do was possible, or simply madness. As Amaros raised her with his hands, she closed her mind, reaching into the clockwork angel. She tumbled for a moment through dark space, and then a gray limbo, seeking that light, that spark of spirit, that life -
        And there it was, a sudden blaze, a bonfire, brighter than any spark she had seen before. She reached for it, wrapping it about herself, coils of white fire that burned and scorched her skin. She screamed aloud-
                                                     And Changed.

Perhaps, but you would not exist without a woman, would you? However little use you may find us, we are cleverer and more determined and more patient than men. Men may be stronger, but it is women who endure.               ~ Tessa Gray
