Day 20 – Favorite kiss or love scene

I’m not much of a girl for love scenes. I don’t really believe there’s a way to do too much sex without resorting to euphemisms or clinical terminology.

With that said, my favorite is still the night Phedre and Joscelin spend in a Skaldic cave, their first one together. It’s beautiful without being graphic, and meaningful without getting overly cloying.

Much of the rest of this series is pretty graphic, so it’s not for the faint of heart. But the language is haunting and poetic, and the world is intricate, though this first book takes quite a while to get started.

It’s also totally worth it.
