Nocturnal Quotes: The Oversight Edition

Hello, lovelies!

It's time for our second ever Nocturnal Quote, courtesy of Le Non Design. For this week, I've chosen a quote from a historical urban fantasy novel I loved, The Oversight by Charlie Fletcher. I reviewed The Oversight just yesterday - if you missed it, you can find my review HERE.

Here's the quote I picked out, courtesy of Le Non Design:

And here are a few words about the book itself:

Title: The Oversight
Series: Oversight Trilogy, #1
Published: May 6th 2014
Publisher: Orbit
Lenght: 448 pages

Only five still guard the border between the worlds. And when they fall, so do we all... The Oversight is a gothic fantasy that will appeal to fans of Neil Gaiman, Philip Pullman and Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell
"The end always comes faster than you think."
Once there were hundreds of members of the Oversight, the brave souls who guard the borders between the mundane and the magic. Now there are only five. And their numbers are dwindling further still.
When a vagabond brings a screaming girl to the Oversight's London headquarters, she might answer their hopes for a new recruit, or she could be the instrument of their downfall.
In his first novel for adults, Charlie Fletcher (The Stoneheart Trilogy) spins a tale of witch-hunters, supra-naturalists, mirror-walkers and magicians. Meet the Oversight, and remember: when they fall, so do we all.

While I'm here, thank you for being awesome and stopping by while I was on vacation. We had the best time, and I enjoyed spending a week with my extended family. It is, however, very good to be back, too.
