Wide silver-gold eyes swung to him. “You don’t know?”
“No.”
Pouting, she twirled a strand of her hair. “How can you not know?”
“Do you know mine?” he asked.
“Of course I do. It’s the day you met me.”
― Gena Showalter, quote from The Darkest Surrender


“You are not Kaia the Disappointment. Do you hear me? That’s what I was trying to tell you earlier. You are Kaia the Mighty. How many Harpies out there do you think could have brought down the most badass Lord of the Underworld? The same Lord who also happens to be the strongest, sexiest and smartest. And by the way, in case there’s any doubt, I’m describing me.”
― Gena Showalter, quote from The Darkest Surrender

“I hate this Gladiator shit," Sabin muttered.

"Yes, well, where do you think the Romans learned from?"

Sabin sputtered for a minute. "You're trying to tell me Harpies are responsible for this? That the Romans learned from them?"

"I must try only if you are lacking intelligence.”
― Gena Showalter, quote from The Darkest Surrender


“She has the heart of a child, you know. Yeah, it's in a box beside her bed.
- Kaia Skyhawk”

― Gena Showalter, quote from The Darkest Surrender

little miracle?”

Bianka to Kaia”
― Gena Showalter, quote from The Darkest Surrender


“Tabitha blinked innocently. "Why is your consort speaking to me without my having addressed him first?" she asked Kaia. "Have you not taught him the proper order of things?"

So the little man wasn't supposed to speak to the women folk without an invitation? Screw that. "Just stay out of my head, Harpy, or I'll make sure you regret it. By the way, how's the leg?"

She hissed at him.

Win!”
― Gena Showalter, quote from The Darkest Surrender


“Speaking of, “When is your birthday?” Strider asked Kaia.
Wide silver-gold eyes swung to him. “You don’t know?”
“No.”
Pouting, she twirled a strand of her hair. “How can you not know?”
“Do you know mine?” he asked.
“Of course I do. It’s the day you met me.
As good a day as any. “No, it’s not, because that was a trick question, baby doll. I don’t actually have a birthday. I was created fully formed, not born.” True story.
“You can be such a moron.” She threw up her arms, exasperated. “Don’t argue with me about this kind of thing. I’ll always be right. Seriously. You were dead until you met me and we both know it. Which means I brought you to life. So, happy belated birthday.”
― Gena Showalter, quote from The Darkest Surrender


“I am made of awesome." Kaia the Wing Shredder”
― Gena Showalter, quote from The Darkest Surrender


“He willed his body to remain unaffected. Sabin would fuss if Strider sported a hard-on around his precious. And, of course, "fuss" meant Strider would find his intestines wrapped around his neck, breathing a thing of the past.”
― Gena Showalter, quote from The Darkest Surrender


“I would have been here sooner but Lysander held me prisoner in our cloud," Bianka said with a grin. "He wouldn't relent until Sabin gave the ok. Which I still don't understand and will continue to punish him for until he spills. Secrets or guts, I don't care which.”
― Gena Showalter, quote from The Darkest Surrender


“When I find my consort, I plan to stab him in the heart before he can cause me a moment's unease. -Taliyah”
― Gena Showalter, quote from The Darkest Surrender


“No.” He wouldn’t lie about that. Not to her. And not because she’d rip him to pieces when she discovered the truth. “I can’t give you forever.”
The nibbling increased in intensity, leaving a bead of blood in the center of her mouth. “Because we’re not a good match?”
Of course she would remember every insult he’d ever thrown at her. “Yes.”
“Then what can you give me?”
“Here. Now.” Something his body craved more with every second that passed.”
― Gena Showalter, quote from The Darkest Surrender


“But if anyone
so much as threatened them because of what Kaia
had once done, she would turn the Slumber Party
Massacre into Blood, Bath and Beyond, a
documentary by Kaia Skyhawk.”
― Gena Showalter, quote from The Darkest Surrender


“Ego Check. Damn it. How many would he need in one day?”
― Gena Showalter, quote from The Darkest Surrender

Popular quotes

“Just a minute, Esther. Slow down and listen to me. How can Hashem answer such a prayer in the middle of a war? We are the ones who started this war, not Him. People are not puppets that Hashem controls, making us do whatever He wants. Nor can He be manipulated to do whatever we ask of Him. Human beings chose to start this war, and that means we are responsible for putting the people we love in danger, not Him. But Hashem can bring good from this, even if we cannot see it.”
― Lynn Austin, quote from While We're Far Apart


“You can't kill an American Citizen without benefit of a trial."
"I can if you're on the list, traitor."
"LIST? What list? What the hell are you talking about?"
BLACK LIST, July 24”
― Brad Thor, quote from Black List


“Save the people you love, who cares about the rest of the world? - Uncle Jake”
― Michael Buckley, quote from The Council of Mirrors


“He had seen Alessandra Pino only once before, but he never forgot her… he had heard many rumors about her, but they all ended with the same conclusion. She was crazy, stark-raving-mad-fuck-bat-crazy. She kept getting moved from purification site to purification site. Everyone wanted her. No one could handle her.”
― Cerece Rennie Murphy, quote from Order of the Seers


“Tenía en mis manos la posibilidad de vivir la vida que yo deseaba; no luchando ni huyendo, sino recurriendo a mi ingenio.”
― Sherry Jones, quote from The Jewel of Medina

About BookQuoters

BookQuoters is a community of passionate readers who enjoy sharing the most meaningful, memorable and interesting quotes from great books. As the world communicates more and more via texts, memes and sound bytes, short but profound quotes from books have become more relevant and important. For some of us a quote becomes a mantra, a goal or a philosophy by which we live. For all of us, quotes are a great way to remember a book and to carry with us the author’s best ideas.

We thoughtfully gather quotes from our favorite books, both classic and current, and choose the ones that are most thought-provoking. Each quote represents a book that is interesting, well written and has potential to enhance the reader’s life. We also accept submissions from our visitors and will select the quotes we feel are most appealing to the BookQuoters community.

Founded in 2018, BookQuoters has quickly become a large and vibrant community of people who share an affinity for books. Books are seen by some as a throwback to a previous world; conversely, gleaning the main ideas of a book via a quote or a quick summary is typical of the Information Age but is a habit disdained by some diehard readers. We feel that we have the best of both worlds at BookQuoters; we read books cover-to-cover but offer you some of the highlights. We hope you’ll join us.
