Hilari Bell Hilari Bell said: " An interesting book, in a lot of ways. There are a few things that are a bit off for me, but I don't think that most readers will find a heroine who leads with her heart instead of her head at all a problem. Or that it spends a lot of time on the rom ...more "

“You can fool some of the people all of the time, and all of the people, some of the time, but you can fool yourself anytime you need to badly enough.”
Hilari Bell, Navohar

“In his opinion, working was vastly overrated. Particularly as a way to build character, for everyone who engaged in it was far too snappish and fussy, and seemed to have no manners at all.”
Hilari Bell, Crown of Earth

“Today, salute, mile, serve, deep. And I am never doing that again.-Kavi”
