'"We need to start again.[...] We're supposed to make things better," she said, heading towards the ladder. "We're supposed to build a beautiful new world. No violence. No arguing. No selfishness."
'Twenty years of Fae's resentment and Poppy's self-centred sorrow. Eliot's broken heart. Harry's competitiveness. Jesse's desire. Astrid's dreams, which no one could share. And the cold and this loneliness.'
