Gosh, I love the Mosca Mye books. I particularly liked this one, and the atmosphere that the double cities had. Lovely and dark.

Great sequel, full of adventure, mayhem and general snarkiness. Eponymous Clent and Mosca Mye find themselves in the town of Toll, having escaped the Locksmiths in Mandelion (Fly by Night), only to discover that people in Toll are divided by those who have daylight names and are allowed to live in daytime, while the others who have night names do not exist in daylight hours...Read to find out what happens when the two meet up.

Revenge is a dish best served unexpectedly and from a distance - like a thrown trifle. (Eponymous Clent)

Welter advanced, dropped to a squat and reached toward the bath. He gave it a few experimental rattles, then made a disconsolate noise and shuffled away from it again. "Leveretia," he called out in notes of great solemnity, "I cannot throw this child out into the street." "Well said, Welter," responded his wife, in tones of quiet pride. "No...I mean that I cannot. I would dearly like to, but whenever I try to grip the bath the goose pecks my ear and the child nips my fingers with our sugar-cutters."
