Meagan Spooner
“We thought too much.
Because while hatred is a fire only man feels, he does not hate the beast that comes in the night. Mankind fears it, fights it, drives it off, but he does not hate it. No one hates the bear, he wolf. They don't hate the wind or the snow. They don't hate the death.
They hate each other.”
Meagan Spooner, Hunted

Meagan Spooner
“How do you know this story?"
Yeva's breath caught. "Because it's my story too," she whispered. "Because I thought I wouldn't be happy until I left town to live in the wood, and then I thought I wouldn't be happy until I could hunt every day, and then I thought I wouldn't be happy until I avenged my father's death. Because I spent a year in an old castle with the young prince and the gray wolf and I thought I couldn't be happy until I killed them both, and when I did, I wept harder than I ever have in my life. Because I thought I couldn't be happy until I went home, and then I thought I couldn't be happy until I came back."
"Because I thought the reason I'd always felt so restless was because I was meant for magic," Yeva said softly. "That if I could fix the story, that if I rescued the young prince and the gray wolf and I found the Firebird and I held in my hands everything I'd ever wanted, I would live happily ever after.”
Meagan Spooner, Hunted

“When you're huntin' somepin you're a hunter, an' you're strong. Can't nobody beat a hunter. But when you get hunted - that's different. Somepin happens to you. You ain't strong: maybe you're fierce, but you ain't strong." - Muley”
John Steinbeck, The Grapes of Wrath

“Turning, she looked out at the icy landscape, the soaring trees, branches dark and bitten blue with frost. And for a moment, she had something like a premonition, a feeling that something terrible was watching her, something hungry and sick. She could nearly hear it out there, panting between the trees, its breath ragged and spoiled.”
McCormick Templeman, Slasher Girls & Monster Boys

Janet Evanovich, The Heist

Somepin happens to you. You ain't strong; maybe you're fierce, but you ain't strong. I been hunted now for a long time. I ain't no hunter no more.”

Kevin Hearne
“I’ve never run this far before," he said at one point. "Or this fast for so long. It’s better than sticking your head out a car window, that’s for sure."

My theory is that Oberon might be a master of Tao. He always sees what we filter out. The wind and the grass and something in the sky, sun or moon, shining on our backs as we run: They are gifts that humans toss away like socks on Christmas morning, because we see them every day and don’t think of them as gifts anymore. But new socks are always better than old socks. And the wind and grass and sky, I think, are better seen with new eyes than jaded ones. I hope my eyes will never grow old.”
Kevin Hearne, Hunted

Kevin Hearne
“I dispelled my invisibility for a few seconds in his full view, a finger resting provocatively on my lower lip, giving him a come-hither look under a streetlight. His jaw and the bottle of Żubrówka dropped at the same time. It shattered, drawing his eyes to the sidewalk, and I took the opportunity afforded by his distraction to disappear again.

"That was mean," Oberon said, watching the man look wildly around for me and pawing at his eyes as if to clear them.

Why? I asked. I’ve done him no harm.

"Yes, you have. You will haunt him for the rest of his life. I know from experience."

You’re haunted by someone flashing you on a street corner?

"No. It was a dog park. Atticus and I were just arriving and she was leaving."

Oh, here we go.

"She was so fit and her coat was tightly curled and she had a perfect pouf on the end of her tail like a tennis ball. I saw her for maybe five seconds, until she hopped into a Honda and her human drove her away. And now I can’t see a Honda without seeing her."

But that’s a good thing, isn’t it? Kind of romantic? A vision of perfection you can treasure forever, unspoiled by reality.

"Well, I don’t know. In reality I’d like to try spoiling her, if she was in the mood."

Look, Oberon, that man is lonely. He’s too skinny and sweaty, and I’m willing to bet you five cows that he’s socially awkward or he wouldn’t be staggering drunk at this hour. But now, for the rest of his life, he will remember the na**d woman on the street who looked at him with desire. When people treat him like something untouchable, he will have that memory to comfort him.

"Or obsess over. What if he starts wandering the streets every night looking for you?"

Then he’s misunderstood the nature of beauty. It doesn’t stay, except in our minds.

"Oh! I think I see. That’s true, Clever Girl! Sausage never stays, because I eat it, but it’s always beautiful in my mind.”
Kevin Hearne, Hunted

Krystalle Bianca
“I was like a hare being stalked by a hungry wolf. He didn’t go straight for the kill. That would have been too easy. Instead he waited it out, stalking his prey in the shadows. He would bare those large, sharp teeth and the prey would be oblivious to the threat right in front of them. Once the rabbit could finally see the wolf for what it really was, it was too late. The wolf already had his jaw locked against the rabbit’s throat. It couldn’t go nowhere. It was completely helpless to the wolfs punishing grip. No matter how much the rabbit fought or how much the rabbit struggled, it couldn’t escape.
I’ve found my very own wolf and I can do nothing but stare into his hungry eyes.”
Krystalle Bianca, Perfectly Fractured (The Imperfect, #1).

Jonathan Marker
“A shot rang out from the rifle of an alerted Harvestman, and just as the sound reached Nathaniel’s ears, he felt the hot streak of a bullet pierce his left arm, spattering blood on the ground before him.”
Jonathan Marker, SPYDER SYLK

“You can’t just bring a regular human here! What if the girl runs and tells the whole world on that Twitter thing about us?”
L. Taylor

Cailee Francis
“He’d have more time for philosophical thoughts if he wasn’t being pursued by a herd of satyrs. They weren’t turned on by his rugged good looks either; they had murder on their minds.”
Cailee Francis, Shifter Mischief
