“Between darkness and light there is truth.”
Mande Matthews, Bonded

“The world does not create you. You create the world by what you choose to believe.”
Mande Matthews

“Astrid struck at the warrior, remembering the young villager who had wandered into a remote meadow near their encampment. The girl had befriended her and invited her back to her family’s farm on the far side of the valley. When her mother and Balin found Astrid, the brute threw her over his shoulder like a sack of grain and carried her off. They dismantled their home after her indiscretion with the outsider and moved yet again,”
Mande Matthews, The Light Keepers
