3. "Yeah? Okay," she said, staring up into the stars. "Let's see. You know how, at the end of Romeo and Juliet, Juliet wakes up in the crypt and Romeo's already dead? He thought she was dead so he killed himself right next to her?""Yeah. That was awesome." A pause, followed by "Ow," suggested elbow punctuation on the part of Mik. Karou ignored it. "Well, imagine if she woke up and he was still alive, but..." She swallowed, waiting out a tremor in her voice. "But he had killed her whole family. And burned her city. And killed and enslaved her people."

Author: Laini Taylor
5. "He dropped to his knees, and the air between them rippled with Karou's crippling magic and with memory. The day of her death, this is what she had seen, this: Akiva on his knees, sick with the weight of this same magic coursing off Thiago's soldiers, and he had struggled to hold his head up and look at her—just like this—with horror and despair and love—and she had wanted more than she had ever wanted anything to go to him and hold him, whisper to him that she loved him and was going to save him, but she couldn't, not then, and she couldn't now, not because of shackles or pinions or the executioner's ax but because he was the enemy. He had proven it beyond any horror she would ever have believed, beyond any betrayal she could ever have dreamed, and he could never be forgiven, not ever.But… then… her hands fell to her sides."
Author: Laini Taylor
6. "Karou saw them with her human eyes, this army she had rendered more monstrous than ever nature had, and she knew what the world would see in them if they flew to fight the Dominion: demons, nightmares, evil. The sight of the seraphim would be heralded as a miracle. But chimaera? The apocalypse."
Author: Laini Taylor
7. "Just then, lit only by the flicker of his wings,the sight of him was so..right somehow. He was right. It made no sense at all, but the feeling flooded through Karou"
Author: Laini Taylor
8. "The humans were sitting cross-legged on the floor in a circle of soldiers, pointing at things and learning more Chimaera words: salt, rat, eat, which unfortunate combination led to Zuzana rejecting the meat on her plate."I think it's chicken," Mik said, taking a bite."I'm just saying there were a lot more rats around here earlier.""Circumstantial evidence." Mik took another bite and said, in passable Chimaera and to guffaws of laughter, "Salty delicious rat.""It's chicken," insisted one of the Shadows That Live. Karou wasn't sure which it was, but she was flapping her arms like wings, and even producing chicken bones to prove it."
Author: Laini Taylor
9. "Finding Akiva's door still closed, Liraz gave a chuff of derision and didn't knock but only crashed it open and glared at the sight that greeted them. Akiva and Karou, eyes bleary with desire, facing each other on a stone slab and touching, hands to hearts... "Well," Liraz said, her voice as dry as the rest of her was not. "At least you still have your clothes on."
Author: Laini Taylor
10. "My phone buzzes. It's from Karou: a list of conversation openers that I won't be needing. —a) Hi. I'm Zuzana. I'm actually a marionette brought to life by the Blue Fairy, and the only way I can gain a soul is if a human falls in love with me. Help a puppet out? —b) Hi. I'm Zuzana. The touch of my lips imparts immortality. Just sayin'. —c) Hi. I'm Zuzana. I think I might like you."
Author: Laini Taylor

Author: Laini Taylor
13. "You argued before that the dead don't want to be avenged, and that may be right, sometimes, but when you're the one left alive -""We don't know that they're -" Karou broke in, but couldn't even finish the sentence."Life feels stolen.""Given.""And the only response that makes sense to the heart is vengeance," he said."I know. Believe me. But I'm hiding in a shower with you instead of trying to kill you, so it would seem that the heart can change its mind."
Author: Laini Taylor
14. "I love you, crossbar,' whispered Karou and petted it."
Author: Laini Taylor
15. "I...I sang," she whispered, "if that matters," and Karou felt her heart pulled to pieces. This Misbegotten warrior, fiercest of them all, had crouched in an icy stream bed to sing a chimera soul into her canteen, because she hadn't known what else to do.The singing wouldn't have mattered, but she wasn't going to tell Liraz that. If Ziri's soul was in that canteen, Karou would happily learn whatever song Liraz had sung and make it part of her resurrection ritual forever, just so that the angel would never feel that she'd been foolish."
Author: Laini Taylor
16. "A pause came between them, and it was so full of Akiva that Karou imagined she could smell him."
Author: Laini Taylor

Author: Laini Taylor
18. "- Las mariposas en el estómago-suspiró Karou-Claro. ¿Sabes lo que pienso? Que las mariposas están siempre ahí, en el estómago de todos, en todo momento...- ¿Cómo bacterias?- No, no como bacterias, como mariposas. Y las de cada uno reaccionan con determinadas personas, a nivel químico, como feromonas, así cuando esas personas se acercan, tus mariposas empiezan a bailar. No pueden evitarlo, es una reacción química."
Author: Laini Taylor
19. "Rushing, like wind through a door, and Karou was the door, and the wind was coming home, and she as also the wind. She was all: wind and home and door. She rushed into herself and was filled. She let herself in and was full."
Author: Laini Taylor
20. "Karou wasn't a prize to win; that wasn't why he was here. She was a woman and would choose her own life. He was here to do what he could, whatever he could, that she might have a life to choose, one day. Whoever and whatever that included was her own affair."
Author: Laini Taylor
21. "Karou was mysterious. She had no apparent family, she never talked about herself, and she was expert at evading questions--for all that her friends knew of her background, she might have sprung whole from the head of Zeus. And she was endlessly surprising. Her pockets were always spilling out curious things: ancient bronze coins, teeth, tiny jade tigers no bigger than her thumbnail. She might reveal, while haggling for sunglasses with an African street vendor, that she spoke fluent Yoruba. Once, Kaz had undressed her to discover a knife hidden in her boot. There was the matter of her being impossible to scare and, of course, there were the scars on her abdomen: three shiny divots that could only have been made by bullets."
Author: Laini Taylor
22. "—Quiero que sepas… —Akiva tragó saliva—. Necesito que sepas que me sentí atraído por ti (por ti, Karou) antes de descubrir el hueso. Antes de darme cuenta, y creo… creo que siempre te encontraría, sin importar lo escondida que estuvieras —la miró con extraordinaria intensidad—. Tu alma y la mía cantan la misma canción. Mi alma es tuya, y siempre lo será, en cualquier mundo. No importa lo que suceda… —su voz se quebró y tuvo que respirar hondo—. Necesito que recuerdes que te quiero."
Author: Laini Taylor
23. "This new thing between them it was... Astral. It reshaped the air, and it was in her, too—a warming and softening, a pull—and for that moment, her hands in his, Karou felt as powerless as starlight tugged toward the sun in the huge, strange warp of space."
Author: Laini Taylor
24. "The door opened. She looked in the mirror and suppressed a curse. Slipping in behind some tourists, that winged shadow was back again. Karou rose and made for the bathroom, where she took the note that Kishmish had come to deliver.Again it bore a single word. But this time the word was Please."
Author: Laini Taylor
25. "I know. Life is so unfair. I'm still not going to pee on Karou's ex-boyfriend for you.""What? I wasn't even going to ask you to." In her most reasonable tone, Zuzana explained explained, "I just want you to pee in a balloon so I can drop it on him."
Author: Laini Taylor
26. "I don't know many rules to live by,' he'd said. 'But here's one. It's simple. Don't put anything unnecessary into yourself. No poisons or chemicals, no fumes or smoke or alcohol, no sharp objects, no inessential needles--drug or tattoo--and...no inessential penises either.''Inessential penises?' Karou had repeated, delighted with the phrase in spite of her grief. 'Is there any such thing as an essential one?''When an essential one comes along, you'll know,' he'd replied."
Author: Laini Taylor
27. "He remembered a story Madrigal had told him once: the human tale of the golem. It was a thing shaped of clay in the form of a man, brought to life by carving the symbol aleph into its brow. Aleph was the first symbol of an ancestral human alphabet, and the first letter of the Hebrew word truth; it was the beginning. Watching Karou rise to her feet, radiant in a fall of lapis hai, in a woven dress the colour of tangerines, with a loop of silver beads at her throat and a look of joy and relief and... love... on her beautiful face, Akiva knew that she was his aleph, his truth and beginning. His soul."
Author: Laini Taylor
28. "Oh, good, Pestilence is free," said Karou, heading towards the sculpture. Massive emperor and horse both wore gas masks, like every other statue in the place, and it had always put Karou in mind of the first horseman of the Apocalypse, Pestilence, sowing plaque with one outstretched arm."
Author: Laini Taylor
29. "That's your evidence? Flimsy. Maybe he secretly fights crime and he's texting infuriating riddles to his nemesis," suggested Karou."Yes, I'm sure that's it. Thank you."
Author: Laini Taylor
30. "An angel lay dying in the mist. Once upon a time.And the devil should have finished him off without a second thought.But she hadn't. And if she had? Karou had wondered it a hundred different ways. She'd even wished for it, in her blackest grief at the Kasbah, when all she could see was the death that had come of her mercy.If she'd killed Akiva that day, or even just let him die, the war would have ground on unbroken. Another thousand years? Maybe. But she hadn't, and it hadn't. "The age of wars is over," Akiva had just said, and even as Karou saw what she saw and no possibility of mistake, and even as her whole being gathered itself into a scream, her heart defied it. The age of wars was over, and Akiva would not die like this.The blade entered his heart."
Author: Laini Taylor
31. "...Your body is nothing but an envelope, Karou. Your soul is another matter, and is not, as far as I know, in any immediate danger." "An envelope?" She didn't like to think of her body as an envelope--something others might be able to open up and rifle through, remove things from like so many clipped coupons. "I assumed you felt the same way," he'd said. "The way you scribble on it." Brimstone didn't approve of her tattoos, which was funny, since he was responsible for her first, the eyes on her palms."
Author: Laini Taylor
32. "Well, Karou had wanted to retort, with all the gravity and maturity she could muster. Duh."
Author: Laini Taylor
33. "Karou szeretett volna olyan lány lenni, aki önmagában teljes, jól érzi magát magányosan, és derus. De nem olyan volt. Magányos volt, és félt a benne lévo hiányosságtól, mintha az képes volna terjeszkedni… és megszüntetni ot. Arra vágyott, hogy mellette legyen valaki, aki kézzel fogható. Könnyed ujjak a tarkóján és egy hang, amely fogadja a sötétben. Valaki, aki esernyovel várja, hogy hazakísérje az esoben, és napsugárként mosolyog rá, amikor megjön. Aki táncol vele az erkélyén, megtartja az ígéreteit és ismeri az o titkait, és teremt egy aprócska világot, bárhol legyen is, csakis Karouval meg a maga karjával, suttogásával és Karou belé vetett bizalmával."
Author: Laini Taylor
34. "It's not free, Karou. Magic has a price. The price is pain."
Author: Laini Taylor
35. "Karou had things to do. Sometimes they took a few hours; other times, she was gone for days and returned weary and disheveled, maybe pale, maybe sunburned, or with a limp, or possibly a bite mark, and once with an unshakable fever that had turned out to be malaria."
Author: Laini Taylor
36. "Nerves," Mik told Karou."Bad?""Terrible." Stepping up behind Zuzana, he bent down to enfold her in a spoon-hug. "Ferociously, dreadfully awful. She's unbearable. You take her. I've had enough."Zuzana batted at him, then squealed as he buried his face in the curve of her throat and made exaggerated kissing noises."
Author: Laini Taylor
37. "You were kinder to yourselves in your legend than we were," Karou continued. "We made ourselves out of grief. You made yourselves in your gods' image, and with a noble purpose: to bring light to the worlds.""A black job we've done of it," he said."
Author: Laini Taylor
38. "We're playing Three Wishes," she told her friend. "Cake, hot bath, soft bed. How about you?""World peace," said Karou.Zuzana rolled her eyes. "Yes, Saint Karou.""Cure for cancer," Karou went on. "And unicorns for all.""Bluh. Nothing ruins Three Wishes like altruism. It has to be something for yourself, and if it doesn't include food, it's a lie.""I did include food. I said unicorns, didn't I?""Mmm. You're craving unicorn, are you?" Zuzana's brow furrowed. "Wait. Do they have those here?""Alas, no.""They did," said Mik. "But Karou ate them all.""I am a voracious unicorn predator."
Author: Laini Taylor
39. "Karou's glance flickered to where the corpse had been, which did not go unnoticed by Liraz. "You think I didn't learn?" the angel asked, incredulous. And with that, Karou almost dared to hope. "Did you?" she asked, and her voice was very small.Did you learn?Did you glean Ziri's soul?Dear gods and stardust, did you?Liraz started to tremble. "I don't know," she said, "I don't know." Her voice shattered, and just like that she was crying."
Author: Laini Taylor
40. "Liraz may have captured Ziri;s soul like a butterfly in a bottle, but that was only a formality. It was already hers.And, clearly, judging by the state of her laugh-sobbing in Karou's arms, hers was his, too."
Author: Laini Taylor
41. "When it turned out that he could, Karou dropped to her knees to genuflect. "Gods of math and physics," she intoned, "I accept your gift of this clever, fair-haired boy."

Today's Quote

It was soon after that I, overwhelmed with the implications of that memory, overdosed - well, somebody did but as it was my mouth and my stomach that was involved I had to take the consequences. Somehow or other (did an alter ring him?) Bruce (from my support group) got to know, drove over and took us to the hospital."
