Claudia Gray, Stargazer
“You're alive, Bianca. You still can't appreciate what it means, to be alive. It's better than being a vampire - better than anything else in the world. I remember a little of waht being alive was like, and if I could touch that again, even for a day, it would be worth anything in the world. Even dying again, forever. All the centuries I've known and all the marvels I've seen don't compare to being alive."
~from Evernight, by”

Claudia Gray, Afterlife
“Thunder rumbled. My heart beat faster. I turned away from Evernight for the last time and looked back at the flower as it trembled upon its branch. A single petal was torn away by the wind. Pushing my hands through the thorns, I felt lashes of pain across my skin, but i kept going determined.
But when my fingertip touched the flower, it instantly darkened, withering and drying as each petal turned black. ”
Claudia Gray, Evernight
“Lucas seemed to have realized our prediciment at the same moment I had. "I haven't got my credit card with me. Kinda left in a hurry. We just spent the only cash I had in my pocket." Too-bright signs from the few open stores made mee squint. "We'd have been better off with a slingshot and Oreos.”
Claudia Gray, Evernight
“Do you question my authority? I am the headmistress of Evernight!" It was Balthazar who answered her by casually slinging his crossbow back upon his shoulder so that it just happened to be aimed straight at Mrs. Bethany. He wasn't threatening her, exactly, but it was very clear that he wasn't going to back down. As she jerked upright in shock, Balthazar drawled, "School's out.”
Claudia Gray, Evernight
“I'm not dating Balthazar. I'm pretend dating him. Which involves some not pretend hand-holding. And maybe some not pretend kissing. But it's all actually pretend, see?
I groaned. My explanations were making my head hurt already.”
Claudia Gray
“He frames my face with his hands as he says, "Tess. Only you could be brave enough to die with me. But I want you to live for me."
We kiss, as desperate as though we were drowning. When our lips part, Alec says, "Forgive me.”
Claudia Gray, Fateful

Claudia Gray, A Thousand Pieces of You
“Hear me out. Would you eat a hamburger if there was any chance it could punch you in the face?
- How is a hamburger supposed to punch me in the face?
Just say that it can. Would you bother? Or would you eat something else?”
Claudia Gray, Evernight

“You should go."
"I can't."
"Because you want to stare at the monster?" Alec's green eyes blaze, but with a wholly human fire now. "Or because you pity me?" I couldn't guess which possibility he loathes more.
I fold my arms. "I can't leave because the door's locked. Believe me, I would've gone hours ago if I could have."
"Oh. Of course." Then he looks so abashed--so boyish, and so handsome--that I almost want to laugh.”
Claudia Gray, Fateful
“I wonder how much of the rest of his clothes I could convince him to take off, then wonder where that thought came from.
Well I guess I know.”
Claudia Gray, Fateful

“But nothing was a important as escaping Evernight or the ‘destiny’ my parents and teachers had decided for me. I had only one chance to be free and to be with the guy I loved. I intended to take it.

Claudia Gray, Stargazer
“Now I know grief is a whetstone that sharpens all your love, all your happiest memories, into blades that tear you apart from within. Something has been torn out from inside me that will never be filled up, not ever, no matter how long I live. They say "time heals," but even now, less than a week after my father's death, I know that's a lie. What people really mean is that eventually you'll get used to the pain. You'll forget who you were without it; you'll forget what you looked like without your scars.”
Claudia Gray, A Thousand Pieces of You
“Balthazar was the kind of guy who used totally correct spelling and punctuation even when he was texting, which was sort of bizarrely hot. She was in serious trouble if commas could get her going.”
Claudia Gray, Balthazar
“Vic bears you no ill will. He is outside drinking the Dew of the Mountain and will be glad to see you yourself again" Ranulf said to Lucas.”
Claudia Gray, Afterlife
“It was as if something snapped in two deep inside me. My parents-- the people I’d loved the most in the world, the ones I’d always told all my secrets to, the ones I’d wanted to hide with far away from the rest of the world. They had lied, and I couldn’t imagine why. It couldn’t possibly matter why.


Claudia Gray, Stargazer
“Are you calling me a weirdo?
Highest honor I can bestow.”
Claudia Gray, Evernight
“But you have nothing better to do with your time than harass us, do you? Go back to ruling the universe from Mount Olympus or whatever else it is you mongrels do.”
Claudia Gray, Fateful
“Poor Lucas, always trying to protect me from danger. He’d never guessed that I was the dangerous one.”
