    Summary

    Costis’s eyes were drawn to Eugenides’s face, the rings on his hands, the place under his coat where Costis knew there was still a scar. Eugenides never looked at him, but Costis still had the uncomfortable feeling that the king knew. The king knew everything.

    Summary

    If they told him to march in opposite directions, he doesn’t know which one he would follow. Some days, his head tells him, There is your queen, and there is her cowherd kidnapper, but his heart tells him, There is your king, and there is the woman who still gives him nightmares. He hates each of them, for the other’s sake. He thinks the person he hates the most is himself. He thinks he’s losing his mind.

    Summary

    “Think of your poor sister, alone in a strange place. Come now, Costis. Even you can’t possibly be so hard-hearted.” And then the king was beside her, grabbing her hand and Costis’ and clasping them together. He looked up at Costis with laughing eyes. “I can make it an order.”
