    Sherrilyn Kenyon, Acheron

    Sherrilyn Kenyon
    “...You're omniscient, right?"
    "For the most part, yes."
    "Then you have to tell me this ‘cause I have to know. What's at the end of everything?"
    He shrugged. "That's easy enough."
    "Then tell me."
    "The letter G.”
    Sherrilyn Kenyon, Acheron

    Sherrilyn Kenyon
    “A monster. I despise my true form. (Acheron)
    I can’t imagine why. Other than killing me, you were actually cute in a very Papa Smurf kind of way. (Tory)
    Papa Smurf? I don’t look like Papa Smurf. (Acheron)
    No, baby, you don’t at all. You look like sex on a stick. Now is your ego all better? (Tory)”
    Sherrilyn Kenyon, Acheron

    Sherrilyn Kenyon
    “No one can ever make you feel inferior without your permission, Tory. Don’t give it to them. Realize that it’s their own insecurities that make them attack you and others. They’re so unhappy with themselves that the only way they can feel better is by making everyone as unhappy as they are. Don’t let those people steal your day, baby. You hold your head high and know that you have the one thing they can never take away from you. (Theo)
    What's that, Papa? (Tory)
    My love. Your mother’s love and the love of your family and true friends. Your own self-respect and sense of purpose. Look at me, Torimou, people laugh at me all the time and say that I’m chasing rainbows. They told George Lucas that he was a fool for making Star Wars – they used to even call it Lucas’s Folly. Did he listen? No. And if he’d listened to them you wouldn’t have had your favorite movie made and think of how many people would never have heard the phrase 'May the Force be With You.' (Theo)”

    “You’re human. No one cares if you sleep with a whore. (Artemis)
    (Tory did something she’d never in her life done before. She slapped another person.)
    You ever insult Acheron again and so help me, I’ll do to you what you allowed your brother to do to him. I’ll cut your tongue out for it. Acheron is the man I love and no one, ever, takes issue with him without having issues with me. (Tory)”
    Sherrilyn Kenyon, Acheron

    “I love him. (Artemis)
    How can you say that? You don’t even understand what love means. Love isn’t being ashamed to be seen with the one you care about. It isn’t about punishment or hurt. Love is what gives you the strength you need to face anything no matter how brutal or frightening. It’s what allowed Ash to be beaten rather than tell his father about you. It’s what allowed him to be gutted on the floor at your feet rather than publicly shame you. And you spat on him for that love and tore him apart. For a goddess, you’re pathetic. (Tory)”
    Sherrilyn Kenyon, Acheron

    Sherrilyn Kenyon
    “In our past lies our future. By our own hands and decisions we will be damned and we will be saved. Whatever you do, put forth your best effort even if all you're doing is chasing a never ending rainbow. You might never reach the end of it, but along the way you'll meet people who will mean the world to you and make me...mories that will keep you warm on even the coldest nights”
    Sherrilyn Kenyon, Acheron

    Sherrilyn Kenyon
    “Because I don’t feel broken when you look at me. (Acheron)
    How could you feel broken? (Tory)
    I was shattered as a child and thrown away, like a piece of trash no on wanted. But you don’t treat me like that. You see in me the human bit and you touch that part of me. You make me feel whole and wanted. (Acheron)”
    Sherrilyn Kenyon, Acheron

    Sherrilyn Kenyon
    “Then he will be called Acheron for the River of Woe. Like the river of the Underworld, his journey shall be dark, long and enduring. He will be able to give life and to take it. He will walk through his life alone and abandoned – ever seeking kindness and ever finding cruelty. May the gods have mercy on you, little one. No one else ever will. (Oracle)”
    Sherrilyn Kenyon, Acheron

    Sherrilyn Kenyon
    “He was through playing games. When it came to Soteria, he had no sense of humor whatsoever. Anyone who threatened her, ended their life.
    It was that simple.”
    Sherrilyn Kenyon, Acheron

    Sherrilyn Kenyon
    “What's the deal with the bossman?" Urian asked him.
    Alexion shrugged. "I don't know. He came in last night with a book, went to his room to read, I suppose, and then he came out here this morning and has been playing . . . those songs ever since."
    Those songs were ballads, which Acheron never played. God-smack, Sex Pistols, TSOL, Judas Priest, but not . . .
    "Is that . . ." Urian physically cringed before he spat out the name, "Julio Iglesias?"
    Urian grimaced in horror. "I didn't even know he knew any mellow shit. Dear gods . . .is he ill?"
    "I don't know. In nine thousand years, I've never seen him like this before."
    Urian shuddered. "I'm beginning to get scared. This has to be a sign of the Apocalypse. If he breaks out into Air Supply, I say we sneeak up on him, drag him outside and beat the holy shit out of him.”
    Sherrilyn Kenyon, Acheron

    “I have found my star. She is beauty and grace. Elegance and goodness. My laughter in winter. She is courageous and strong. Bold and tempting. Unlike any other in all the universe, and I cannot touch her. I dare not even try." [Zarek]”

    “When your life burns to ash before you, it's hard to find hope in the embers of what remains.”
    Darby Briar, Burning Ember

    “We're all mad here.”
    Cheshire Cat

    Katie MacAlister
    “I ground my teeth. "Just when I thought I was getting a handle on this whole Dark One/demon lord/imp thing, you go and throw knockers into the mix. I'm going to have to request that you stop, Adrian. I'm about at my limit of how many impossible things I can believe before breakfast."
    He flashed a heart-stoppingly roguish grin at me, his dimples just about bringing me to my knees. "Your middle name wouldn't be Alice, would it?" he asked.
    "No, it's Diane, and you're no White Rabbit, so let's just stop pretending we're in Wonderland, OK?"
    He laughed and pointed across the tiny square at our destination. I watched him for a moment, seeing a glimpse of the charming, charismatic man he must have been before the demon lord cursed him and leeched away all the softer emotions.”
    Katie MacAlister, Sex, Lies and Vampires
