Banquet of Lies (2013) Michelle Diener (Regency London)

Banquet of LiesI needed to reread this as well.

For her, what people ate, and how they ate, was just as interesting as the stories they told.

This one is also about food.

Her voice was as bitter as burned coffee, and just as dark.

But in addition to being about food, it’s also about stories (even if Gigi likes food better).

For her, what people ate, and how they ate, was just as interesting as the stories they told.

All the stories!

shadow detached itself from one of the trees and lunged at her father— like an evil stallu from Lapland’s Sami folktales

There were rarely absolutely black villains in real life, her father was fond of saying. They were found in fairy tales to illustrate evil clearly, but most villains were colored in shades of gray.

“You look like a beautiful Viking maiden. I can see you with a raven on your shoulder, riding into battle to choose who will fall and who will be spared.” “Eh?” Iris stared at her, holding her ash-smudged hands away from her white apron. “The Valkyries. From Norse legend. They rode horses into battle, and chose who was to fall and die.”

“Not sure I’d like to have that sort o’ responsibility.”

I just love everything about this book.
