“If you reach for the stars, you just might land on a decently sized hill.”
Stuart Hill, The Cry of the Icemark

“To a happy war!' laughter echoed with all the insane glee of an army of psychopaths.”
Stuart Hill, The Cry of the Icemark
tags: war

“And exactly how does a miserable face help the war effort?" he asked sharply, his mood beginning to change. "Will a frown bring back the dead or fortify a town?

Stuart Hill, The Cry of the Icemark
