This week, my swoon is from Dreamstrider by Lindsay Smith!
"I love you. I love you so much, Brandt Germanius Strassbourg, and I don't care if you're promised to House Alizard, because I'm not afraid to dream."
Brandt's face has turned ashen, and I can see bruises in the crystal-cut hollows of his cheeks. He reeks of exhaustion and strife. But now, as he leans over me, hi smile lights him from the inside.
"Neither am I."
He kisses he like nothing else matters at all. Nightmare, Farthing, Barstadt, the Iron Winds - for now, there's only my golden-haired boy nestled in my arms, his warmth burning through me like a fire. This is what I dream of - my best friend, my confidante, my love. He pulls me closer, and I curl against him, both of us moving wordlessly in our own fluency.
