    1. Hey Loree - It dawned on me that I had my Cassandra Clare characters backwards! Lady Camille Belcourt is the vampire; Magnus Bane is a warlock. I must keep these paranormal details straight! :-)

  4. I just read this word for the first time (I think) in the novel The Night Circus. I had to look it up when I read it. Love these Whimsical Words of the Week!
