“Queer folks are like wolves," Julian told him. "We travel in packs."

(p. 125)”
Aiden Thomas, Cemetery Boys

“There's no way y'all have been around for thousands of years without there being one person not fitting into the 'men are this, women are that' bullshit." Julian sounded so convinced, so sure. His obsidian eyes locked onto Yadriel's. "Maybe they hid it, or ran away, or I dunno, something else, but there's no way you're the first, Yads.”
Aiden Thomas, Cemetery Boys

“No, it wasn't the end. It was a better beginning.”
Aiden Thomas, Cemetery Boys
