“I traded freedom for power, and I could use that power to keep the people I cared about safe. To wish for both freedom and power would be selfish; there was a reason everything came with a cost.”
Melissa Caruso, The Defiant Heir

“My throat tightened. 'I'm not good at these games. Not like you are, Mamma.'

'Then don't play. Figure out what you are good at, and make that the game.”
Melissa Caruso, The Tethered Mage

“I tried to imagine green grass growing over the smoking mounds of ash, and flowers blooming all through the valley, coming out in a blaze as bright as balefire. It seemed impossible, now, but life was inexorable. It would always triumph over death in the end.”
Melissa Caruso, The Unbound Empire
