Mail from Nightshade's Shay Doran

Today, I received a mysterious package that had a return address with no name. Since I love getting mail, I quickly tore into this package to see what I had gotten. As it turned out, it was from Shay Doran, a character in Adnrea Cremer's upcoming novel Nightshade, which you should all purchase once it is out as it is excellent. Check out Shay's blog and Facebook page here. Anyways, I opened the package to find a note from Shay and a book.
Shay had bookmarked two pages with little snippets from Crime and Punishment by Fyodor Dostoevsky. When I opened to those pages, there were drawings in ink, and certain words and letters were circled. It was almost as though someone was trying to send a message of some sort.
As far as I can tell, these pages say something along the lines of, "The gift that the Queer One" (with the letters gs, of and tr leftover) and "The mutual chain of knights confined to." For the latter, the leftover letters are m, B, S, R A. What does this mean? Are they knights confined to mARBS, as in an abbreviation for "marble" (like "totes" for totally)? I'm not sure.
This page seemed to say "I bring the find to SEARCHERS," like maybe someone had found something and was bringing it to the SEARCHERS. At least in this case I didn't have any leftover letters.

I haven't figured out much, but hopefully it's enough to help Shay. If you have a better idea of what the clues mean than I do, let me know in the comments.

  1. I have to give props to whomever is orchestrating the marketing for Nightshade. I love reading about all the different clues being sent out. Extremely creative ! I don't think I can get any more excited about this freaking book!
