"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

“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

Hellfire (Theirs Not to Reason Why #3) by Jean Johnson

Hellfire (Theirs Not to Reason Why) - ACE

I would say so far that this series is very consistent with the writing style and I quite like that. I love Ia and what she does, not to mention why and how. There was this one particular scene I read a couple of times, just because it's so very well written and emotional. I don't like Sung, but the scene was great. I'm not sure I like Harper though. I think he is slightly annoying, but brilliant and helpful in what Ia needs fixing. I'm just not sure I care for the romance aspect. I can't wait to read the next book, because the ending ended in a cliffy and I want to see the result of it.
