“He was dirty, his hair unkempt, his clothes stained with blood. Heroes in stories somehow managed to rescue maidens while looking like court dandies. Next time he went adventuring he'd remember to bring a comb.”
J.V. Jones

“There were no stars, or if they were they shone like volcanic glass.”
J.V. Jones, A Fortress of Grey Ice
