“I shouldn't have lost my temper that way. It just pricks his pride, makes him dig in his heels."
"So why did you?" I asked, genuinely curious. It was rare for Nikolai's emotions to get the best of him.
"I don't know," he said, shredding the leaf. "You got angry. I got angry. The room was too damn hot."
"I don't think that's it."
"Indigestion?" he offered.
"It's because you actually care about what happens to this country," I said. "The throne is just a prize to Vasily, something he wants to squabble over like a favorite toy, You're not like that. You'll make a good king."
Nikolai froze. "I…" For once, words seemed to have deserted him. Then a crooked, embarrassed smile crept across his face. It was a far cry from his usual self-assured grin. "Thank you," he said.
I sighed as we resumed our pace. "You're going to be insufferable now, aren't you?"
Nikolai laughed. "I'm already insufferable.”

“It's always been this way. There were rumors about me even before I was born. It's why my mother never calls me Sobachka. She says it makes me sound like a mongrel."
My heart gave a little pang at that. I'd been called plenty of names growing up.
"I like mongrels," I said. "They have cute floppy ears."
"My ears are very dignified.”
Leigh Bardugo, Siege and Storm

Leigh Bardugo
“I'll get them out and come back. I promise."
"On your word as a cutthroat and a pirate?"
He touched my cheek once, briefly. "Privateer."
Another explosion rocked the grounds.
"Let's go!" shouted Mal.
As we sprinted into the tunnel, I glanced back and saw Nikolai silhouetted against the purple twilight. I wondered if I'd ever see him again.”
Leigh Bardugo, Siege and Storm

“How do you plan to keep me here during the day? An unblooded Forbearer shouldn’t be so
hard to vanquish.”
Vanquished by her? Amusing. “I’ll send you back to the cell. You want to be my pet? I’ll take
you out and put you back in your cage at my pleasure.”
She blinked at him. “You don’t want to send me back. Who will entertain you? I can deal poker
and make shadow animals.”
Kresley Cole, The Warlord Wants Forever

“He smiled sadly. "I was lost from the moment I saw you on Ovchinin Island. It took a long while for me to realize it, but it's true. I've spent my entire life scrambling to fit in and to change myself, Vika, but where I've belonged, and who I needed to be, has been right here the whole time. I love you.”

“—“Instinkt nikogda ne sdayetsya, nikogda ne zabudu, nikogda ne prostyat i nikogda ne umirayet.” —dijo Nikolai, en ruso, y su voz sonó aún más hueca en el cavernoso salón, más imponente que nunca— Significa “el instinto nunca se rinde, nunca olvida, nunca perdona y nunca muere”. Es el lema de nuestra gente. Para que no olvidemos qué y quiénes somos, ni de dónde venimos, ni hacia dónde vamos." -- Nikolai Valinchenko”

Melisa S. Ramonda
“Las personas ordinarias presuponen la existencia de hombres-lobo mágicos. Prefieren creer en la supuesta maldición.
Y no hay nada mágico en esto. Nos multiplicamos haciendo bebés, no mordiendo. Somos individuos únicos e irreemplazables, inteligentes, con deseos y secretos. Pensamos, hablamos, vivimos. Muchos de nosotros estudiamos, trabajamos, tenemos familias. Convivimos con otros seres humanos. Quizá nacemos equipados para sobrevivir (o quizá, para escondernos) en condiciones extremas, pero también tenemos hambre, sufrimos frío y calor, nos cansamos, nos da sueño. Nos enfermamos. Nos enojamos. Luchamos. Reímos, lloramos. Nos enamoramos, odiamos. Morimos. Especialmente, eso: somos seres mortales de esta tierra.
-Nikolai Valinchenko-”
Melisa S. Ramonda, Humo entre los árboles

“You are mine." He spoke against her lips. "You always have been. You always will be.”

Melisa S. Ramonda
“[...] No me alejé de mi familia porque me haya convertido en hombre-lobo. Nadie se puede contagiar de nada por una mordida, porque esto no se transmite por ninguna otra vía que no sea de padres a hijos. Es hereditario [...] Naces con ello, y te mueres con ello. No es una maldición ni una enfermedad, y no tiene cura." -- Nikolai Valinchenko”

Melisa S. Ramonda
“...hay algo que he pensado desde que te conocí, y es que si la plata pudiera realmente hacerme algún daño, hubiera temido mucho de tus ojos. Tus ojos lo dicen todo, todo el tiempo. Siempre que me miras es con una intensidad que me deja ciego, me desorienta. Me somete.(...)Y ese rubor en tus mejillas hace que tus ojos se vean aún más hermosos, grises como la plata. Yo también te amo, Johanna. - Nikolai Valinchenko”
Melisa S. Ramonda, Rasguños en la puerta
