“You're like the wind - you're meant to be out there, among the mountains and the stars, fighting storms and monsters and anything else foolish enough to get in your way.”
I realized that I missed River. Not the person he had turned out to be, but the person I had thought he was.... The River who had been my friend.... I had always felt like an outsider in Azmiri. Traveling with River had been the first time I'd felt like I belonged somewhere. I wondered if I would ever feel that way again.
"It would be easier for you if I did run again," I said. "Wouldn't you rather collect the star from my broken body, were I to fall?"
"You wouldn't fall," River said. "I wouldn't let you."
"One day, your story will be written in the stars," he said. "It's up to you to choose what they'll say."
“You do know that Azar-at can read your thoughts? You don’t need to announce every spell you cast—though I suppose it’s like you to do everything as dramatically as possible.”
"Choosing to lock yourself up in a life that doesn't suit you is its own sort of death."
