The Nightingale

"In China, you know, the emperor is a Chinese..."

What a great first line.  

I read The Nightingale a long time ago, and I can't fully remember how it went.  I started re-reading it, but when I got to the bit about the clockwork nightingale, I knew what I'd be drawing, and didn't feel like reading the rest of the story again.

I guess he's a little bit of a throwback to my Unnatural Miscellany series from last year.
