Quotes by Lindsay Buroker  (?)
Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“Trust me, I never underestimate my charm or any of my other magnificent attributes. They work great on women. Alas, men tend to see me as an unwelcome rival. You, he might listen to. You're good at talking people into things."

"What makes you say that?"

"Because I'm perched in the rafters of a cannery, at risk from a man-slaying magical creature, and spending time with a drunk, a gangster, and an assassin at . . . what time is it?”
Lindsay Buroker, The Emperor's Edge
tags: humor

“Waiting for the right people isn't going to get us where we want; we need to go out and find..." She groped for the right word. A mission? A project? A job?

"Trouble?" Sicarius suggested.

"An endeavor that will help the city and prove to the emperor that we're undeserving of the bounties on our heads and we're invaluable resources to his regime."

"Trouble," Sicarius said.”
Lindsay Buroker

“You can only fight one man at a time with a sword, but, with a pen, you can compose a lecture to bore legions of enemy troops to death.”
Lindsay Buroker, Blood and Betrayal

Laura Hi Lindsay! woohoo! you found me :)


Lindsay Awww, thank you, Jessieee! (That's a lot of e's, by the way--not the traditional spelling. ;)


Jessie  (Ageless Pages Reviews) love your books & blog. I have reading material forever :D


Lindsay Thanks for the note, John!

I read the first...eight or nine Black Company books years ago and noticed Cook had a couple more out since then, so I'm going to grab them when I get a chance. ;) I especially liked the first three with Croaker's dry humor.


message 2: by John

John Carroll I noticed you have the Black Company Chronicles on your to read list. They are really, really good. It's one of the few darker novels that I really like and I think Glen Cook got lost a little bit in the middle, but I highly recommend it.


Darcia Helle Thanks for the add, Lindsay! :)
