“Sarcasm is the last refuge of the imaginatively bankrupt.”
Martha Wells, City of Bones

“Flower lifted a brow, dubious. 'You have to pay for a place to be dead in?'
Moon shrugged. 'Sometimes, in cities. It’s a groundling thing.”
Martha Wells, The Serpent Sea

“It's not going to make a very good story, in the annals of my time as sister queen.” She quoted dryly, “‘Then her consort jumped up and knocked the foreign queen unconscious with a kettle.”
Martha Wells, The Serpent Sea
