About this author

Amalia Dillin began as a Biology major before taking Latin and falling in love with old heroes and older gods. After that, she couldn't stop writing about them, with the occasional break for more contemporary subjects.

Amalia is the author of the Fate of the Gods trilogy, and the soon to be released Orc Saga, beginning with HONOR AMONG ORCS on April 1 2014.

“Wait." He paused, and she held out a hand to him. His thick fingers engulfed her tapering ones; his skin was warm and dry, and scorched her. "Before we go pick up poor Lieutenant Illyan again..."

He took her in his arms, and they kissed, for the first time, for a long time.

"Oh," she muttered after. "Perhaps that was a mistake. It hurts so much when you stop."

"Well, let me..." his hand stroked her hair, gently, then desperately wrapped itself in a shimmering coil; they kissed again.”
Lois McMaster Bujold, Shards of Honour

“He shook his head and looked away, as if he was giving himself a firm lecture only he could here.”
Roni Loren, Fall into You

Octavia E. Butler

“Nay, father.
Some of us have been killing giants today and aren't in the mood to have a tea party.

Matt Fraction, Thor: Ages of Thunder

“For if you suffer your people to be ill-educated, and their manners to be corrupted from their infancy, and then punish them for those crimes to which their first education disposed them, what else is to be concluded from this, but that you first make thieves and then punish them.”
