“To have a traitor for an ally is to have an enemy in waiting”

Jacqueline Carey
Kushiel’s Dart


Anyone who hasn’t read this masterpiece published in 2001 should rectify that oversight as soon as possible. If you have never read Jacqueline Carey before you have been seriously deprived. Kushiel’s Dart is the best debut novel I have ever had the pleasure to read, and it is so damn quotable too. Don’t be surprised if I post many more quotes from the book in the weeks and months to come.



Dedicated to the unforgettable quotes of fantasy and science fiction literature. Whether long or brief; funny or serious; whimsical or dramatic. May they provide incentive to discover the originating books.
