Sneak Peek: Throne of Glass af Sarah J. Maas

Før var sneak peek indlæggene forbeholdt endnu ikke udgivne bøger, som vi kunne få et lille indblik i, men dette har jeg måtte droppe, da der desværre ikke er særligt mange forfattere, som vil afsløre alt for meget, inden deres bøger udkommer. Nu vil sneak peek i stedet indeholde små citater fra de bøger som jeg læser. Jeg vil selvfølgelig ikke afsløre nogle helt store og grumme detaljer, men i stedet prøve at give et lille indblik i hvad der gemmer sig bag de smukke forsider.

Første bog jeg vælger at give et lille indblik i er Throne of Glass af Sarah J. Maas, og netop dette citat gik rent ind, for man kan virkelig formenne forfatterens passion for bøger, igennem hendes hovedperson:

“The…” She looked at the claw-shaped iron handles. “Can we – may we go in?”
The Captain of the Guard opened the doors reluctantly, the strong muscles of his back shifting as he pushed hard against the worn oak. Compared to the sunlit hallway, the interior that stretched beyond them seemed formidably dark, but as she stepped inside, candelabras came into view, along with black-and-white marble floors, large mahogany tables with red velvet chairs, a slumbering fire, mezzanines, bridges, ladders, railings, and then books – books and books and books.
She entered a city made entirely of leather and paper. Celaena put a hand against her heart. Escape routes be damned. “I’ve never seen – how many volumes are there?”
Chaol shrugged. “The last time anyone bothered to count, it was a million. But that was two hundred years ago. I’d say maybe more than that, especially given the legends that a second library lies deep, beneath the catacombs and tunnels.”
“Over a million? A million books?” Her heart leaped and danced, and she cracked a smile. “I’d die before I even got through half of that.”

Jeg elsker sådan nogle bog-ormede citater, og netop dette fik det til at krible helt ned i storetåen – tænk at have sådan et bibliotek…
