― Brian Keene, King of the Bastards

― R.A. Salvatore, Archmage

The Desert Spear8) “There is no man in creation who is not your brother.  No woman not your sister, no child not your own.  For all suffer the Plague, righteous and sinful alike.  And all must band together to withstand the night.”

― Peter V. Brett, The Desert Spear

― Michael R. Fletcher, Beyond Redemption

shadow's son4) “Why is it that if a lord or a king sends you to kill a man, it’s somehow noble? But if you do this for yourself, it’s murder?”

veil of the deserters3) “Rumor’s the slut you bend over a chair and never see again. Truth’s the lady you wed.”

— Jeff Salyards, Veil of the Deserters

EMPEROR OF THORNS2) “There’s a slope down toward evil, a gentle gradient that can be ignored at each step, unfelt. It’s not until you look back, see the distant heights where you once lived, that you understand your journey.”

― Mark Lawrence, Emperor of Thorns

Purchase the book at Amazon.

mistborn1) “I consider myself to be a man of principle. But, what man does not? Even the cutthroat, I have noticed, considers his actions “moral” after a fashion.

Perhaps another person, reading of my life, would name me a religious tyrant. He could call me arrogant. What is to make that man’s opinion any less valid than my own?

I guess it all comes down to one fact: In the end, I’m the one with the armies.”

― Brandon Sanderson, The Final Empire

Purchase the novel at Amazon.
