Read & Download ¸ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF Ü Patricia A. McKillip Download Cygnet by Patricia A. McKillip 108 In the realm of fantasy one name stands out from the crowd For many years Patricia A McKillip has charmed readers with her uniue br. These are two tales or perhaps two thousand about magic The magic of slow reading where you put time and care into each sentence until you see the spell The magic of vast characters who have remembered what they really are The magic of a storyteller who has no need of death to raise the stakes beyond the sky and has barely any need of villains to reveal the conflicts that rip us and remake us This magic is particularly rare I miss it how I miss itBut mostly these are two tales about love what love should have been all along has always been will be foreverI won t say any lest I destroy the magic You read my notes below only if you can t read the book I started this duology than a year ago but I decided to pause after the first few chapters because the writing was too dense and deep for the state in which my brain was at the time Now I m picking it up again and it s breathtaking I can t remember ever experiencing such an intense sense of moving among archetypes and characters larger than legend through that realm where words can mean anything and can make everything happen the realm of primal fantasy and sacred textsListenScreaming he fell into a room full of mirrorsRaising his head gathering breath again with his throat raw from his last cry he opened his eyes and saw all around him within mirrors ancient and ornate framed plainly in wood or silver oval suare diamond hexagonal vast mirrors too heavy to lift propped against the wall with smaller mirrors strewn against them crouching figures in torn silk and muddy leather lifting thorn scarred faces staring with black empty eyes For a moment he did not recognize himselfThe breath left him in a long shaking sigh with a sound to it like an unshaped word He got to his feet so did his reflections He had an eerie feeling that even at his back his reflection was gazing at him As he turned to look all the images vanishedHe stood like a ghost in a room full of mirrors that took no notice of him I m dead he said startled He heard Nyx Ro calling his name Her voice sounded sharp bewildered He looked around for a door saw only mirrors crowding the walls a few hanging bannerlike from the ceiling their faces blank as the Delta sky He touched one he could not even cast a shadowIn sudden panic he spoke Nyx Ro s nameShe appeared in one of the ornate mirrors I couldn t find you she said tightly I heard you scream I couldn t find you I can t find a door He turned again searching and caught his breath at the sight of Nyx multiplied in threadbare blue velvet her face waxen a smudge of ash across one cheekbone I can t see myself at all Only you I can only see you she said Her arms were folded tightly she was frowning at once disturbed and curious I thought I knew every room in this house Why didn t you come back through the Ring I did he said terselyHer eyes widened She said Corleu Can you touch my hand She held it out to him his fingers were stopped by cold glass Am I some place out of time Is that why I can t see myself Should I break a mirror No she said uickly Mirrors hold your image they should be treated with care These don t They re all ignoring me I saw myself in all of them and then I vanished as if an eye blinked somewhere or they stopped thinking of me For a moment even she stopped thinking of him How strange she breathed How strange A secret room within a house full of a thousand secrets I wonder what it sees when no one is here If you wait long enough no one will be here and then you can find out likely She held out her hand again I don t know why you re still standing there complaining One of me is real Find me Here s to a magical 2018 where everything can happen Shortly afterwards there comes a passage which gives one possible key to reading Cygnet Sit down Tell me a story of Corleu and the Blind Lady Maybe then you won t be afraid of the dark He sat He dropped his face in his hands She was likeshe was like this house Old rambling crazed untidy like a beggar woman you might see at a crossroads mumbling to herself her fingers moving always weaving weaving At the end she made me look at her weaving She threads even the stars into it I saw the Ring of Time she makes where all the threads there are flow together and you can t see one life one star from another and outside that Ring there is nothing He raised his head That s the Ring I fell through I thought I would fall into that nothing She mused over that twisting a pearl button Yet even she is trapped Corleu Even she And what you saw is only another story of the Weaver of Withy Hold The Cygnet holds her powerless And even that is only another story How many heartbreaks can you count in the following passage Tell me Nyx said curiously what she is like Tiel He looked at her You wouldn t even see her face likely if you passed her he said simply You d see her dark skin and her dark hair and that would be all your eye would say She is Wayfolk She I could hardly see her face when I before I lost her What it is like truly She was like the world like sky like leaves like night Her face was my face When that dark house fell and I ran into it I never left her I m still there in that mist like that ghost on the dock like the Warlock s shadow in the stars I m outside my heart looking for the way back in He added bitterly after a pause It was easy enough to leave I only had to go through a door Nyx was still in a way that Meguet remembered so still the watery sheen on the fabric of her gown seemed painted no light trembled on the gold clip in her hair Then her hand moved fell across the open pages close to Corleu s hand If she had straightened a forefinger she could have touched him You had no choice I should have stayed with her I could have Then there would have been no mist trapping your company no falling house no spellbound love no timely meeting with a bog witch just a straight road through the Delta to the sea because if you were a man who could not recognize that house or had been warned by it it would never have fallen into your life Though she added that can t be a flea s worth of comfort Not even that he sighed and dragged at another book on the heap Now how many kinds of love Dubious She felt him laugh noiselessly at the word There s nothing dubious about what she s doing It s disgusting Then how can you love her so Can t you love someone else instead I ve tried And No one else in the world is a lank haired cold eyed sharp tongued woman with enough sorcery in her to stand this house on its head Is there anything at all you like about her No Just the smallest finger in each hand the color that comes into her eyes under a full moon the way her mouth shapes certain words My name for instance The way she laughs which she did once three years ago A soft summery chuckle like blackbirds among the rose trees The way she wears the color green The way she looks sometimes like a wild thing listening for another wild thing The way she reads as if words are air to be breathed The way she kissed me when we were barely than children out of curiosity behind the closed doors of the hay barn on the warmest day of the year and the way she looked at me afterwards as startled as if she had just invented a world The way the shadows of the doves flying up into the rafters crossed and recrossed her face His hand was between Meguet s shoulders by then his fingers working at the knot from the day s ridingHint view spoilerThree at the very least Include my love for the writing hide spoiler
