“Killing isn't free. It takes something out of you every time you do it. You get their life; they get a piece of your soul. It's always a trade.”
Paolo Bacigalupi, Ship Breaker

“I'm a chess piece. A pawn,' she said. 'I can be sacrificed, but I cannot be captured. To be captured would be the end of the game.”
Paolo Bacigalupi, Ship Breaker

Paolo Bacigalupi, The Windup Girl
