"It has been said, 'time heals all wounds.' I do not agree. The wounds remain. In time, the mind, protecting its sanity, covers them with scar tissue and the pain lessens. But it is never gone. " -- Rose Kennedy



“We can easily forgive a child who is afraid of the dark; the real tragedy of life is when men are afraid of the light. ”  -- Plato



“The life of the dead is set in the memory of the living. ”  -- Marcus Tullius Cicero



“There is a sacredness in tears. They are not a mark of weakness, but of power. They speak more eloquently than ten thousand tongues. They are the messengers of overwhelming grief, of deep contrition and of unspeakable love. ”  -- Washington Irving



“We all wear masks and the time comes when we cannot remove them without removing our own skin.”  -- André Berthiaume



“I am an invisible man. No I am not a spook like those who haunted Edgar Allen Poe: Nor am I one of your Hollywood movie ectoplasms. I am a man of substance, of flesh and bone, fiber and liquids - and I might even be said to possess a mind. I am invisible, simply because people refuse to see me.”  -- Ralph Ellison



“Without knowledge, life is no more than the shadow of death.”  -- Molière



“Everyone calls himself a friend, but only a fool relies on it: nothing is commoner than the name, nothing rarer than the thing.”  -- Jean de La Fontaine



“Beware, so long as you live, of judging men by their outward appearance.”  -- Jean de La Fontaine


 

An Officer's Duty (Theirs Not to Reason Why #2) by Jean Johnson

An Officer's Duty: Theirs Not to Reason Why Series, Book 2 - Jean Johnson

I think if possible that this was slightly better than the first book. I absolutely adore Ia, not only her skills but her amazing will power and strength. I think she is one of my all time favorite female characters. The plot was wicked cool and I was thrilled to be able to follow Ia's journey and see her getting closer to her end goal. I especially loved the fighting scenes and how Ia navigated them. I can't wait to read the next book - as soon as this review is done I'm gonna start book 3.

I'm wildly fascinated by this author's imagination and I'll say this is one of the better sci-fi series out there imo.
