"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


Forbidden Drink (Kindred, #3) by Nicola Claire

Forbidden Drink - Nicola Claire

I think I need a break before I continue this series. I'm not sure how much I even like the MC. I do however, really like the newcomers Erika and Amisi. Beyond that I'm not surprised by Michel's actions and I'm really close to loathing him.


Rick's death was predictable and I think that side plot was unnecessary. I don't get why Jerome had to die, just for Rick to die next book. Pointless.

I'm also gonna miss Bruno.

I thought the lady darkness was a nice counterpart to Nut.

I was sad to see Nero die though. I liked him a great deal, even more that I could ever like Michel.

Though if any of you have read "Kiss Of The Dragon (Kindred, #8)" feel free to say who she ends up with/how it ends.
