Storm Constantine
“In Vangery, Dannel had been a great matriarch of one of the most influential families on the marsh. Now she felt like a coddled grandmother, even though she was not that old nor had grand-children.”
Storm Constantine, Aleph

Storm Constantine
“At the end of the room, merciless beneath a crop of withering spot-lamps, a representation of the Goddess presided over her fane, within an invisible haze of smokeless incense. Irreverently, Zy decided her stern expression was one of severe constipation.”
Storm Constantine, Aleph

“Kethroak wants everything to remain exactly the same so that he doesn’t have to deal with feeling uncomfortable. Of course, this is a futile ambition. Change is inevitable.”
Fiona Lane, Para Kindred: Enigmas of Wraeththu

Storm Constantine
“He refilled his cup with wine and felt himself fill up with a warm rush of pride for all of his people. It had been hard being literally ripped up from the roots and expelled into the limbo of Artemis’ wild north. Nobody had been properly prepared, but they’d had the vitality to survive and enjoy their survival. Perhaps the Elders of the marsh had wandered, bewildered, behind their children into the wilderness. It had certainly been the children who had sustained them. In Vangery, Meonel had never taken much notice of his son. Now they had discovered almost to mutual surprise, that they had a relationship. Meonel was young enough to be a friend to Orbin as well as a father. It gave him a start that was almost chilling when the boy caught his eye and smiled at him, offering a window onto the pile of maturing emotion to be held within. It was still difficult to look upon Orbin as part of his flesh. The boy had bloomed free of the marsh. Obviously, he was a plant that did not need roots.”
Storm Constantine, Aleph

“The folds of red silk spread over the hot tiles looked like spilled blood, the blossoms on the carefully pruned hibiscus bushes behind like vivid splashes.”
Fiona Lane, Para Kindred: Enigmas of Wraeththu

“He could see everything in the most intense detail, from the texture of the red silk cloth to the shadow of stubble on the new har’s head and the pulse in the hollow of his throat, which remained steady as Kethroak’s hands touched over his body, even as the muscles there contracted briefly.”
Fiona Lane, Para Kindred: Enigmas of Wraeththu

“If the dehara had ever been here, then they were long gone, banished by the failure of their worshippers to perceive their true nature.”
Fiona Lane, Para Kindred: Enigmas of Wraeththu

“The Rhylarch’s reputation includes a liking for innocence and youth when it comes to aruna,” Mallas said.

“He says it pleases the dehara.”

“How very fortunate for him that his own personal preferences mesh so seamlessly with the deities. Did you offer him your own youth and innocence, Pavdam? That sour look you’re giving me tells me you did. Would you not like to see him deprived of the opportunity to use other young hara for his own gratification?”
Fiona Lane, Para Kindred: Enigmas of Wraeththu

“Aruna can be dangerous…” he croaked.

Mallas’s smile changed, becoming something feral and terrifying. He rubbed his face against Pritthri’s langorously. “It’s supposed to be dangerous,” he purred.”
Fiona Lane, Para Kindred: Enigmas of Wraeththu

“Aruna was dangerous, he knew that now. You could lose yourself in it, lose your mind and your very soul if you didn’t hang on as tightly as you could.”
Fiona Lane, Para Kindred: Enigmas of Wraeththu

“A change happened. Humans became har. Hara like Kethroak think that Wraethru are now perfect, that the change is complete, unalterable, but that is not so. The change continues.”
Fiona Lane, Para Kindred: Enigmas of Wraeththu

“Each leaf ended in an elegant point, and from each point the water dripped in a uniform fashion. The result was a perfect curtain of water falling in front of the temple. Unlike the haphazard raindrops descending directly from the clouds, this was orderly and symmetrical. In a moment of revelation, Pritthri realised that this was what the tiles were meant to do. They weren’t failing to channel the water away, they succeeding in turning the chaos of the rainstorm into something beautiful and fleeting. This creation would last only as long as the rain, and then it would be gone, leaving its song unsung and its word unsaid. Only when the thunder rumbled and the skies darkened would it sing once more.”
Fiona Lane, Para Kindred: Enigmas of Wraeththu

“They laid chocolates and ceramics on the table, bright folded holiday cards scrawled with gratitude. You changed my life forever. This was the high point, the moment that made everything worthwhile. Why would she ever, ever consider a different line of work?”
Bonnie J. Morris, Sappho's Bar and Grill

“Lfi isn't over because you failed, it has just began”
