I finally got a caught up (for a while) on my review books and took Dark Passage by M. J. Putney off my TBR mountain for a re-visit to these characters and a combination of historical fiction, romance, and magic. Oh, and it's a boarding school story too. This is a sequel to Putney's first young adult novel - Dark Mirror.

Tory had almost reached her destination when a machine gun blasted crazily from the farmstead ahead.
Friday 56:
Tory was so startled that she tripped over her partner's feet and almost pulled them both down.


  1. I had to chuckle at the 56.... I should get this series, it looks really good.

  2. Page 56 is funny, the beginning scary. But the good kind of scary.

  3. Must agree with Eva! And such a beautiful cover!

    Here's mine

  4. Of course, I thought of the Bogart/Bacall movie . . .

  5. I like Mary Jo Putney so I may try her YA books. The cover is great.
