"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


Destined for an Early Grave (Night Huntress #4) by Jeaniene Frost

Destined for an Early Grave - Jeaniene Frost

This has been the book I've dreaded to reread the most, because I really hate

the whole amnesia plot - I'll never be a fan of that.

However that didn't deter me from reading this book again. I loved seeing Vlad - He's my fav side char..

Besides that I found parts of the book a bit immature, always miscommunication leading Cat and Bones astray and I find that a bit tiring.

I was also very sad that Rodney died and that Justina became a vampire. It wouldn't be so bad if Rodney was there, but alas.

I loved the scene with Gregor, where

he got his head blown to bits. I think its very wicked that Cat get the vamp powers of whichever vamp she sucked on last.
