“You are a blade that has been brutally forged, painfully hammered, and wickedly honed. You are steel, not poison. You are deadly, not depraved. They are very different things, Sybella.”
Robin LaFevers, Courting Darkness
“Your love cannot change a man – or a god. All it can do is open a door, create a new path for him to choose. One that has not been open to him before. That is what the power of your loved can offer him – all of that, and no more.”
Robin LaFevers, Courting Darkness

“Women like her are worse than the men they serve. They cling hardest to the very rules that cage them, ruthlessly ensuring that all other women are equally trapped.”
Robin LaFevers, Courting Darkness

Robin LaFevers, Courting Darkness
“Time is the best salve for heart wounds. Reminding oneself of the small joys and comforts that can still be found in the world. A voice in the dark, a friend, the smell of fresh apples. All of those, over time, can help.”
Robin LaFevers, Courting Darkness
“Given the choice between protecting the innocent without Mortain’s grace or risking eternal damnation, I will protect others every time. My own true nature has nothing gentle or restrained about it. I am darkness made flesh, but it is the darkness of mystery, the endless night sky, and the deep caverns of the earth. It is the darkness that can love a man like Beast. The darkness that will protect those I love with my last breath.”
Robin LaFevers, Courting Darkness
“My stomach churns at how foul a place men have made the world- aided by the women who blindly adhere to their rules. The regent has more power than any woman in France. It would be so easy for her to soften the way for others. That she does not feels like the rankest of betrayals.”
Robin LaFevers, Courting Darkness
“The king’s face relaxes, almost into a smile. This is the sort of motivation he can accept from a woman. Motivation that does not threaten his own sense of power. One that supports, rather than supplants.”
Robin LaFevers, Courting Darkness
