“Does the walker choose the path, or the path the walker?”
Garth Nix, Sabriel

“Touchstone watched, suddenly conscious that he probably only had five seconds left to be alone with Sabriel, to say something, to say anything. Perhaps the last five seconds they ever would have alone together.

“My parents are going to kill me!"
"That seems rather harsh...”
Garth Nix, Sir Thursday
