“Ze weten het. Die daemondingen. Ze weten hoe ik dieren haat... Dat luipaard. Ik heb er jaren nachtmerries van gehad. Vroeger hield ik van dieren. Zij hielden ervan... pap en mam. Ze wijdden hun leven aan de bescherming van dieren tegen stropers. Na hun dood deed elk dier me aan hen denken.' - Nick
'Ik denk dat ik dat net zo voel. Maar je weet dat het niet de schuld was van dat luipaard.' - Claire”
Alison Baird, The Wyrd of Willowmere

“Het is geen luipaard, het is een cheeta. Het is Charlie. Mijn cheeta... mijn huischeeta... Ik heb vreselijk gehuild toen hij wegging.' - Nick
'De echte cheeta is bij je weggegaan. Maar de geest, de daemon die hem naar je toe heeft gebracht, gaat nooit weg. De daemon is je beste vriend.' - Claire”
Alison Baird, The Wyrd of Willowmere

“Het was wel mijn schuld dat je bent verdronken. Ik wist het van de heksenjagers en ik had moeten raden dat ze achter het bestaan van je huisgeest waren gekomen en je kwaad zouden gaan doen. Ik was niet op tijd... ik had vroeger moeten komen. Beter mijn best moeten doen... Ik heb gezworen dat ik je nooit in de steek zou laten, maar dat heb ik wel gedaan.' - Nick
In haar hoofd weergalmde een andere stem van eeuwen geleden. 'Mijn Alice, ik zal je nooit in de steek laten. Dat beloof ik je.'
'Will?' Claire stikte bijna. 'Wíll?”
Alison Baird, The Wyrd of Willowmere
