Meet Tortall: A Spy's Guide!

 
 
The secrets of Tortall are revealed. . . .
 
As Tortall’s spymaster, George Cooper has sensitive documents from all corners of the realm. When Alanna sends him a surprising letter, he cleans out his office and discovers letters from when King Jonathan and Queen Thayet first ascended the throne, notes on creating the Shadow Service of spies, threat-level profiles on favorite characters, Daine’s notes on immortals, as well as family papers, such as Aly’s first report as a young spy and Neal’s lessons with the Lioness. This rich guide also includes the first official timeline of Tortallan events from when it became a sovereign nation to the year Aly gives birth to triplets. Part history, part spy training manual, and entirely fascinating, this beautiful guide makes a perfect gift and is ideal for anyone who loves Alanna, King Jonathan, Queen Thayet, Kel, Neal, Aly, Thom, Daine, Numair, and the unforgettable world of Tortall!

I miss spending more time with friends in high school and my 11th grade English teacher. Anything else I can sort of live without but there's no time for the type of socializing that happened in high school.

I miss friends who I haven't seen in a long time. I don't miss the cliques and the lack of perspective.

I probably miss the friends that I made while in school. I don't see them much these days since we all graduated and kind of went our separate ways.

And I love the newness of it all - something that you'd never done before. But I dislike how rude everyone was.
