The Dark City (Quotes)

Shean sat silent.  Finally he said, "You may be right to rebuke me.  I've lived here too long in the dark, Galen; seen too many martyrs, too many children dragged away.  Under this room so many of their bodies lie, bought from the Watch, secretly buried.  And maybe I've become weak.  Maybe I've thought, if the Crow was here, would he not have saved us from this?  Would he not have risen up and saved the city?"

- Chapter 20, Page 291

That's Catherine Fisher for ya...  Powerful, to the point, jaw-dropping, awe-inspiring.  I love her.  Review on Monday!

Another quote I loved:

"The order will survive.  They can never kill us all.  Underground, well hidden, we have knowledge that can outlive the world." - Reputed last words of Mardoc, Archkeeper, from the rack

- Chapter 7, Page 77

  1. I haven't read anything by her yet, but I so want to read Incarceron. The quote sounds good!
