Favorite Rayna Quotes

1. "I can't believe our parents wanted more offspring after you," Rayna tells Grom. Even hoarse, she's still able to infuse her irritation in each forced word. "After birthing an idiot like you, I'd never think about having more-"
Author: Anna Banks
2. "I hope I don't look as sick as I feel. "The generals couldn't have picked a worse candidate for that Gift!" Holding my stomach doesn't stop it from churning. I can't imagine befriending Goliath and then leading him to the Syrena to be eaten. But I also can't imagine letting Galen or Toraf starve. Probably not Rayna either. It's time to introduce my new friends to the world of pizza...."
Author: Anna Banks
3. "Now, years later, I can translate that lesson into: safe isn't always better than sorry. Sometimes you need sorry to appreciate the safe. And sometimes safe is just plain boring. Rayna's probably going through a combination of both right now. And who am I to say what's right and what's wrong?And what is the law to say how she should live?The law prohibits Half-Breeds. Am I really that bad? The law is like a one-size-fits-all T-shirt. And how often do those shirts really fit everyone?"

4. "Sweet pea, what did you expect?""Something other than that.""Well, you shouldn't have. We human girls are a bit feistier than your Syrena females-Rayna being the exception of course.""But Emma's not human."Rachel shakes her head at him as if he's a child. "She's been human all her life. It's all she knows. The good news is, she can't date anyone right now.""Why's that?" Because to him, it sounded like maybe Emma thought she could."Because she's supposed to be dating you. And if I were you, I'd mark my territory as soon as I got back to school-if you know what I mean."He scowls. He hadn't planned on staying in school after Emma learned the truth-the whole purpose for going was to eventually get Emma to the beach. He didn't anticipate having to teach her how to become Syrena. And he didn't anticipate that up until yesterday she actually thought she was human. In fact, there's a list the length of his fin of things he didn't anticipate.Like how thick the school books are."

5. "Galen sprints to the back sliding-glass door and bangs on it. There's no time for etiquette. He motions for Rayna and Toraf to stay back. He can tell Rayna would rather eat her own than obey, but Toraf restrains her.Emma comes to the door, a brilliant smile on her face. "You in a hurry for some reason?" she says, excitement lighting up those huge violet eyes."He must have missed me," Emma's mom calls from the kitchen. She winks at Galen, completely oblivious to how her world is about to shift."Mom. Ew," Emma says, handing Galen a towel and shutting the door."
Author: Anna Banks
6. "Officer Downing pulls into the driveway next to Mom's car. Of course she's home. I don't know why I even wasted hope that she wouldn't be. Maybe because I'm eighteen, which means they don't bother calling your parents to the scene. But even if I'm not a victim of the law, I'm a victim of the small-town grapevine. A victim of flashing blue lights, whispered scorn, and heads shaking in disapproval. And, boy, do I feel like a victim, because not only is she home, she's standing on the front porch, arms crossed. Waiting.Officer Downing opens the back door to the low-budget cop car that smells like vinyl, BO, and humiliation. I step out. He hands me my backpack, which Rachel was so kind to bring out when we dropped Rayna off at Galen's house. She was also kind enough not to kill me for showing up at her house with a cop."
Author: Anna Banks
7. "And then Grom says: "I'm already mated to Paca."The realization slaps us each in a different way.Me, with elationGalen, with...I'm not sure. He hasn't movedMom, with horror.Toraf, with open-mouth shock that makes him look a bit silly.Rayna, with "You idiot," she spits. "We told you-"Grom points at her in the universal watch-yo-self sign."
Author: Anna Banks
8. "If they're sentenced to the Caverns, we'll both be free to choose different mates. But I don't want another mate, Emma. I want Rayna. I always have."Geez, the boy knows how to make my heart all melty."
Author: Anna Banks
9. "Satisfied with my plan, I wrap a towel around my head genie-style, then wrap another one around my body. I open the bathroom door. And almost jump out of my skin. Galen is sitting on my bed. I've really got to start locking my balcony doors.He looks mad and happy at the same time. It's only been twenty-four hours since I've seen him, but even sleep deprived and grouchy, I'm excited that he's back."I think your dad was a Half-Breed," he says. He frowns. "And I never told Rayna I would teach her how to drive."
Author: Anna Banks
10. "Galen and Rayna are close."I gasp. "How do you know that? I can't feel them." My heart turns traitor, beating like I just ran five miles uphill. It has nothing to do with sensing and everything to do with the mention of Galen's name."I'm a Tracker, Emma. I can sense them from almost across the world. Especially Rayna. And from the feel of things, Galen is flittering that cute little fin of his like crazy to get back to you. Rayna must be riding on his back.""You can tell what she's doing?""I can tell how fast she's moving. No one can swim as fast as Galen, Rayna included. He must be pretty impatient to see you.""Yeah. Impatient for me to change so he can have another royal subject to order around."Toraf's laughter startles me, not because it's loud, but because his mood seems to swing around on an axis. "Is that what you think?" he says."
Author: Anna Banks
11. "But maybe my expression isn't as bad as I think it is. Maybe Galen's just really good at reading me. Or maybe he's just being overly mushy himself. He is a tad protective, after all. I glance at Toraf, who's sitting on the other full-size bed next to Rayna. And Toraf is already looking at me. When our eyes meet, he shakes his head ever so slightly. As if to say, "Don't do it." As if to say, "You really don't want to do it." As if to say, "I know you really want to do it, but I'm asking you not to. As a friend."I huff, then adjust myself in Galen's death grip. It's not fair that Galen and Toraf silently ask me to accept this. That my mother is putty in Grom's proficient hands. That her temperature barely raised a degree around my dad, yet Grom, within an hour of reunion, has her titanium exterior dissolving like Alka-Seltzer in hot water. I can't accept it. Won't. Will. Not."
Author: Anna Banks
12. "He wants you and Rayna both to stay away until he announces the ceremony. I told him you had plenty to keep you occupied until then.""What do you mean?""Are you brainless as a reef, minnow? You can have Emma now. Why you're wasting your time here in Eggland-Galen? Galen, wait for me!"
Author: Anna Banks
13. "Galen, he recognized her immediately.""Emma?" Galen breathes. This can't be happening."No. The stalker.""Wait," Rayna says. "Her? Her who?""Galen," Toraf says. "It's Nalia. Yudor swears on Triton's memory it is. She's not dead. He's on his way back to stop the mating ceremony.Nalia. It all comes together as if the pieces of the puzzle were suddenly jarred into place.Galen tears through the living room and to the beach, Toraf and Rayna close behind him."
Author: Anna Banks
14. "Everyone is wondering where the Royal twins are, since they happened to miss Grom's kingship ceremony. At least I had the good sense to hold a private mating ceremony-in view of Rayna's absence and all."Galen scowls. "He's right. We need to go home for a few days. Our father isn't as protective as your mother, but he likes to see us once in a while. Especially Rayna. She's spoiled."Rayna nods. "It's true. I am. Besides, I need to get our mating-seal overturned.""Aw, princess, I thought we had a good time today. You know I'll make sure you're still spoiled. Why would you want to unseal us?" Toraf says. She lets him take some of her load but turns up her nose at his attempt to kiss her cheek.Galen ignores their marriage meltdown."
Author: Anna Banks
15. "Short of dragging her to the water kicking and screaming-and destroying Emma's trust in him-Galen made the snap decision to leave them both in Rayna's care. And the word "care" can be very subjective where his sister is concerned.But they couldn't waste any more time; with Yudor's head start on them, a search party might have already been dispatched, and if not, then Galen knew it was coming. And he couldn't-wouldn't-risk them finding Emma. Beautiful, stubborn Half-Breed Emma.And he's a little perturbed that Nalia would.The three of them plod holes in the sand reaching up to Emma's back porch, alongside a recent trail of someone else's-probably Emma's-footsteps leading from the beach. Galen knows this moment will always be burned into his memory. The moment when his brother, the Triton king, put on human clothes and walked up to a house built by humans, squinting in the broad daylight with eyes unaccustomed to the sun.What will he say to Nalia? What will he do?"

16. "The more I stare at it, the more the popcorn ceiling above me resembles an exquisite mosaic. Yellow rings from a leaky roof add pizazz to the imperfect white mounds; the reflection of a parked car outside the hotel room highlights the design in a brilliant, abstract pattern. I try to find a name for this provocative image and decide on "Cottage Cheese, Glorified."And that's when it becomes obvious that I'm distracting myself from thinking about the U-turn my life just took. I wonder if Galen is back yet. I wonder what he's thinking. I wonder if Rayna is okay, if she has a killer headache like I do, if chloroform affects a full-blooded Syrena the way it affects humans. I bet that now she really will try to shoot my mom with her harpoon, which reminds me again of the past twenty-four hours of craziness."
Author: Anna Banks
17. "Toraf nudges him from his thoughts. "You know whose advice I need?" He nods toward the gigantic house behind them. "Rachel's.""Actually, you don't," Galen says, standing. He reaches a hand down to help his friend."Why's that?""Rachel's expertise lies more along the lines of communication. You won't need to worry about communication when Rayna finds out you're already mated.""We're what?" They both turn to Rayna who has stopped mid-stride in the sand. The emotions on her face change from surprise to full-blown murderous rage."You're gonna pay a special price for that, minnow!" Toraf calls before he hits the water.Galen grins as Rayna slices through the waves in blood-thirsty pursuit. Then he heads for the house to talk to Rachel."
Author: Anna Banks
18. "I hope you were going to come pry your sister off my back," Paca clips as Rayna swims up. "She's quite rude."Galen throws Rayna a look, to which she lifts her chin. "Paca and her pudgy father over there are full of whale dung," Rayna informs her brothers."Rayna," Grom barks. "Mind your manners."Rayna lifts her chin even higher. Here we go. "Paca is a fraud, Grom," she says. "You can't mate with her. Sorry to ruin your ceremony. Let's go, Galen."Paca gasps as Jagen swims up to the party, almost stuttering in his fury. "You little...little stonefish! How dare you insult my daughter?"Galen grabs Rayna's arm. "What did you do?" he hisses.She jerks her arm away and gives him a superior look. "If Paca has the Gift of Poseidon, I have the Gift of Triton. Don't ask me what it is though, because I don't have a clue.""Rayna, enough!" Grom says, grabbing her other arm. "Apologize. Right now.""Apologize for what? Telling the truth? Sorry, not feeling it."
Author: Anna Banks
19. "You have a better option?"He didn't. Neither did Sage. I borrowed Larry Steczynski's cell phone to call Rayna. Personally, I never answer the phone if I won't recognize the number. Rayna doesn't feel the same way; she sees an unknown caller as a doorway to a possible romance."Hello?" she answered seductively."Hey, it's me.""Clea! Are you okay? I've been phone-stalking you for days. What happened? Where have you been?""Sorry, I lost my cell. Everything's okay." Wow-that was easily the biggest lie I'd ever told anyone in my life."How okay?" she asked playfully. "Did you meet someone amazing at Carnival and get swept off your feet?"I loved that those were the only two options for Rayna: Either something had gone horribly wrong, or I'd gotten wrapped up in a wild, whirlwind romance.I glanced at Sage. "I did meet someone…""I knew it! I want to know everything.""It's kind of a long story.""I've got nothing but time. Details!"
Author: Hilary Duff
20. "I promised her we'd be quick, and Ben and I slipped away, just in time to hear Senator Blaine clear his throat and say, "So, Sage…what if any personal views about women do you have that might interfere with your obligation to treat Rayna with the respect that she deserves?""He may have faced down swarms of crazed New Age militants," I whispered to Ben, "but I bet this is his first Senate confirmation hearing.""It's cruel and unusual punishment, Clea,"Ben said, smiling, "but I like it."
Author: Hilary Duff
21. "I'll get ‘em." Ben tried to walk back inside, but Piri blocked his way."NO!" she screamed. "Never turn your back when you leave the house. Very, very bad luck.""It's fine, Pirir," Ben assured her. "I just want to grab the cookies.""I'll get them. You come here and look in the mirror. Give a dirty look, then everything's better.""I would, I swear, you know I would, Piri, but we're kind of in a rush. I'll just grab the cookies."As Ben pushed past her and went inside, Mom hugged both Rayna and Sage, who apparently was going to be like a son-in-law to her. Ben loped out with the butterhorns, and everyone climbed into Rayna's car, then Mom and I gave each other one last hug."
Author: Hilary Duff
22. "Butterhorn?" Ben asked, holding out a bag full of pastries."Well, you did condemn yourself to bad luck just to get them for me," I said, "So absolutely!""Yeah," Ben agreed, "they'd better be worth it.""Mmmm, completely worth it," I said with my mouth full. "The rest of you have to have some of these.""Hmmm," Sage mused, examining his, "no garlic. I'm not entirely sure my taste buds will know how to handle this.""Um, you guys," Rayna asked, "where am I driving?""Excellent question-let's find out!" I pulled the cribbage board out of duffel bag and handed it to Sage, pointing out the longitude and latitude notations on the back. "Where is that?"Sage took out his phone, then entered the coordinates. "Interesting.""What?" I asked. "It's not Antarctica, is it? I didn't pack a parka."
Author: Hilary Duff
23. "Even Ben thought it was strange-Sage had said he'd be down there. Ben wasn't concerned, though. In fact, he looked a little giddy. "Maybe he decided not to come to Tokyo," he chirped. "Oh well, we'll do better with just the two of us."I loved Ben, but he was seriously transparent. "We need Sage to get the Elixir, though." Not that I cared about the Elixir at the moment. I was actually starting to worry. Where was Sage? Was he okay?"He says we need him," Ben scoffed. "I bet the dark lady will tell us everything we need.""Try his cell," I told Rayna.She pulled out her phone and dialed. "No answer.""Text him.""Maybe he just bailed," Ben said.Ben was just way too happy about this. I got it, but it was irritating."
Author: Hilary Duff
24. "That's it," Rayna said, pushing my laptop closed. It was about a week before the Rio trip, and she and I were at the kitchen island working on term papers."Rayna!" I complained. "I could've lost my work!""Please. You hadn't typed anything in the last hour. Consider this a one-person intervention: Who is he and why haven't you told me about him?"I felt the blush rise into my face. "Who is who?""Seriously? You're going to play that with me? Clea, it's obvious. You're practically delirious; you've been a million miles away since we got back from-" She gasped and smacked my arm. "Oh! My! God! It's Ben, isn't it? I did interrupt something the night we got back from Paris. It's Ben, and you haven't told me because you didn't want me to say I told you so, when I so told you so! You loser!" She hurled the epithet with a grin of such complete delight that I almost hated to tell her the truth."No! Rayna, it's not Ben. It's not anyone.""Liar.""Okay, it's not anyone real, I said, grimacing."
Author: Hilary Duff
25. "Rayna found a makeover show on TV-one of those where they sneak up on unsuspecting people going about their business, accost them with camera, and tell them they look like crap in front of a zillion people, making them cry, then build them back up with a new makeup job they won't be able to replicate and outfits so intricate they'll never remember how to fit them together. It was perfect."
Author: Hilary Duff
26. "Pleased to meet you." Sage said, offering his hand. "The pleasure is all mine," Rayna Purred. "Unless ofcourse, it's all Clea's which is even better."Sage smiled and might have even blushed a bit, which was highly entertaining."
Author: Hilary Duff
27. "So...Rayna and Nico," he said. "From the secon she saw him," I agreed. "They seem good together," Ben said. Then he smiled, adding, "And here I didn't think Rayna was a stable person.""Oooooh." I winced at the bad joke."What? I'm just horsing around.""Ugh, Ben!""You're saying I should rein in the humor?"
Author: Hilary Duff
28. "Rayna beamed as she hugged everyone good-bye and accepted their wishes for a long and happy relationship. Sage looked dazed."How did it go?" I asked."I think your mother just arranged peace in the Middle East while brokering a marriage deal for Rayna and me.""I'm not surprised. How many kids are you having?""Four. But we can't start until she's twenty-six, three years after the wedding. Oh, and we're honeymooning at the minister's beach house in Tel Aviv.""That's nice. I'll have to pop in for a visit."Sage just shook his head, still shell-shocked."Piri forgive you yet?" Ben grinned."I don't think so. She put an inch of garlic on everything she served me.""Don't take it personally. There's lots of garlic in Hungarian food," I assured him."Including my chocolate torte," Sage added. "Okay, you can take that personally," I admitted."
Author: Hilary Duff
29. "I gave the Rayna back the phone and shook my head. "Ben and I are like brother and sister. That's gross.""Hey, I read Flowers in the Attic. It was kind of hot."
Author: Hilary Duff
30. "Apparently it was fine to believe in fate delivering you a soulmate every night, but crazy to believe fate might chafe at being told what to do. I believed Rayna gave fate far too much credit for benevolence."
