Quoteable: Darker Still


I was obsessed.

It was as if he called to me, demanding I reach out and touch the brushstrokes of color swirled onto the canvas. It was the most exquisite portrait I'd ever seen--everything about Lord Denbury was unbelievable...utterly breathtaking and eerily lifelike.

There was a reason for that. Because despite what everyone said, Denbury never had committed suicide. He was alive. Trapped within his golden frame.

I've crossed over into his world within the painting, and I've seen what dreams haunt him. They haunt me too. He and I are inextricably linked--bound together to watch the darkness seeping through the gas-lit cobblestone streets of Manhattan. Unless I can free him soon, things will only get Darker Still.

Would I read this book based only on the quote "Coffee first. Schemes later."?

Not just from the quote, no. I mean, four words? I need a little more than that to be bought off. Maybe if I saw those four words and the cover. . . and the premise. I mean, I'm not completely sold on the cover but thE PREMISE! Yes. Guy stuck in a painting? Cool and creepy!

What about y'all? Would read this book based on those four words?


  1. I would totally read a book based on that! I mean, coffee!!!
