“Wrath is cruel, and anger is outrageous; but who is able to stand before envy? —Proverbs 27:4”
Katherine Kurtz, The Legends of Camber of Culdi Trilogy: Camber of Culdi, Saint Camber, and Camber the Heretic

“Chapter 1 In the bitter cold of a late December night, the gargoyle’s sharp gaze scanned restlessly over the deserted streets of Dublin. Not far below, the clock in the tower of St. Patrick’s Cathedral began to strike midnight. The sound of the bell reverberated on a breeze brittle with the promise of snow, skittering among the city’s chimneys and across frost-kissed slate roofs. Very soon, the rhythm was picked up by other clocks elsewhere in the sleeping city.”
Katherine Kurtz, St. Patrick's Gargoyle

“Reflected briefly in the car’s polished black door, just as his visitor ducked back into the sheltering shadow of the shutters, was not a darkly menacing shadow-shape laced with fire, but the stern, majestic figure of an armored warrior, with a diadem of stars bound across its noble brow and dark pinions sweeping from powerful shoulders to trail rainbows behind. And what its strong hands were cradling against its armored breast was not a radiator mascot but a tiny winged cherub.”
Katherine Kurtz, St. Patrick's Gargoyle
