“Tell me, do you underestimate everyone, or just me? Is it because I‘m a girl?”
“It‘s because you‘re human,” he snapped. “Because you may be the bravest, boldest soul I‘ve ever met, but you‘re still too much flesh and blood and too little power. Astrid Dane is made of magic and malice.”

“Look after him.”
Lila smiled grimly and tugged up the collar of her coat. “I will.”

Yesss! Love that.

“I bet I can make her understand,” he said, shaking himself in her direction.
Lila‘s eyes narrowed. “Burn in hell, you fu—“
“I wouldn‘t bother with her,” cut in Kell. “She bites.”

quote
Lovelylottereader

A wry smile cut across Lila‘s mouth. “You‘re a smuggler.”
“Says the pickpocket,” Kell snapped defensively.

quote
Lovelylottereader

“No such thing as too many knives.”

quote
Lovelylottereader

“The king and queen may not be my parents, but Rhy is my brother. I would die for him. I would kill for him.”

quote
Lovelylottereader

“Does he get into as much trouble as you do?”
Kell cracked a smile. “Oh, much more. Believe it or not, I‘m the responsible one.”

quote
Lovelylottereader

Magic was a truly beautiful disease. But only when the hosts were strong enough.

quote
Lovelylottereader

And for the first time, Kell saw Lila. Not as she wanted to be, but as she was. A frightened, albeit clever, girl trying desperately to stay alive. One who had likely frozen and starved and fought—and almost certainly killed—to hold on to some semblance of a life, guarding it like a candle in harsh wind.

quote
Lovelylottereader

Hang the fine dresses, she thought. I'll take a ship.

quote
Lovelylottereader

The kiss was there and then gone, like one of her smiles.
“What was that for?“ he asked, dazed.
“For luck,“ she said, squaring her shoulders to the wall. “Not that I need it.“

“I'm not going to die,“ she said. “Not till I've seen it.“
“Seen what?“
Her smile widened. “Everything.“

“Another version of London? Is there another version of me?“
Kell frowned. “I've never met anyone like you.“

“Death comes for everyone,“ she said simply. “I'm not afraid of dying. But I am afraid of dying here.“ She swept her hand over the room, the tavern, the city. “I'd rather die on an adventure than live standing still.“

quote
Lovelylottereader

“You don't know anything about these worlds,“ he said, but the fight was bleeding out of his voice.
“Sure I do,“ countered Lila cheerfully. “There's Dull London, Kell London, Creepy London, and Dead London,“ she recited, ticking them off on her fingers. “See? I'm a fast learner.“

quote
Lovelylottereader

“Why do you really want to do this?“
“Because I'm a fool.“
“Lila--“
“Because I can't stay here,“ she snapped, the smile gone from her face. “Because I want to see the world, even if it's not mine. And because I will save your life.“

quote
Lovelylottereader

Lila shrugged. “I'm a wanted man.“
“You're not a man.“
Lila flashed a hollow smile. “The authorities don't know that yet.“

“Hesitation is the death of advantage.“

quote
Lovelylottereader

“What does it do?”
“I don‘t know.” It was a kind of truth.
“I don‘t believe you.”
“I don‘t care.”

“Sit down before you fall down, magic boy.”

“How did you get in here?” she asked.
Kell chewed his cheek. “You wouldn‘t believe me,” he said dismissively.
She shrugged. “I suppose we‘ll find out.”
(…)
“What is your name?” he asked.
“Don‘t change the subject.”

“What are you?”

quote
Lovelylottereader

He opened his mouth, intending to start their conversation with a question, like, Will you untie me? or Where is the stone? but instead found himself saying, “One of your eyes is lighter than the other.”
“And one of your eyes is black.”

Ah, my favorite scene begins!

He smells of flowers, she thought absently as she dragged his body across the floor.

Yes!

quote
Lovelylottereader

He couldn‘t believe it.
He‘d been robbed.

quote
Lovelylottereader

“Someone might think you have a heart under all that brass.”
“No heart,” said Lila, pulling aside her cloak to reveal the holstered pistol and one of her knives. “Just these.”

quote
Lovelylottereader

“No one suffers as beautifully as you.”

quote
Lovelylottereader

The streets would have been stained dark with blood long ago if the cutthroats didn‘t drink it all.

“Trouble is the looker. It keeps looking till it finds you. Might as well find it first.”

quote
Lovelylottereader

Lila Bard lived by a simple rule: if a thing was worth having, it was worth taking.

quote
Lovelylottereader

“Careful, Rhy,“ he said. “You're beginning to sound like a king.“
Rhy's mouth quirked. “One day I will be. And I need you there beside me.“
Kell smiled back. “Believe me. There's no place I'd rather be.“ It was the truth.

quote
Lovelylottereader

He was, after all, Antari.
And Antari could speak to blood. To life. To magic itself.

quote
Lovelylottereader

“Is it true?” the Enthusiast persisted. “What they say?”
“Depends on who‘s talking,” said Kell, closing the box, sliding the lid clasp back into place, “and what‘s being said.”

It‘s a strange kind of nostalgia, reading this again, which is odd considering I first read this only about a year ago and still, these words impact me and make me feel as though, in a way, I‘m coming home.

quote
Lovelylottereader

“The thing about magic,” added Kell, “is that it preys on the strong-minded and the weak-willed.”

quote
Lovelylottereader

A respectable prison is still a prison.

quote
Lovelylottereader

Kell—inspired by the lost city known to all as Black London—had given each remaining capital a color.
Grey for the magic-less city.
Red, for the healthy empire.
White, for the starving world.

quote
Lovelylottereader

He could smell Grey London (smoke) and White London (blood), but to him, Red London simply smelled like home.

quote
Lovelylottereader

“Who‘s there?” he called out without turning. “Robbers? Ghosts?”
“I don‘t believe ghosts would answer, Your Majesty.”

quote
Lovelylottereader

Kell wore a very peculiar coat.
