The Friday 56, Rosemary and Rue

* Grab the book nearest you. Right now.
* Turn to page 56.
* Find the fifth sentence.
* Post that sentence (plus one or two others if you like) along with these instructions on your blog or (if you do not have your own blog) in the comments section of Storytime With Tonya and Friends.
*Post a link along with your post back to Storytime With Tonya and Friends.
* Don't dig for your favorite book, the coolest, the most intellectual. Use the CLOSEST.

The book this week is Rosemary and Rue by Seanan McGuire. The first of the October Daye books. If you like urban fantasy it's worth a look.

The sentence:

Evening couldn't be dead. She was the frigid, ruthlessly efficient Countess of Goldengreen, she was the woman who yelled until they let Sylvester knight me, she was pureblood Daoine Sidhe, and she was going to live forever.

Evening, of course, is the name of a person. Not a human person, but a person none the less. And our heroine is in a bit a denial here.
