“Just stay behind me and try not to get killed. Ready?”
Wylan shook his head.

“It’s just so much easier to kill people than take care of them.”
#5 Ladies discussing their suitors with upmost esteem
“He was afraid for you.”
“Kaz isn’t afraid of anything.”
“You should have seen his face when he brought you to me.”
“I’m a very valuable investment.”
Nina’s jaw dropped. “Tell me he didn’t say that.”
“Of course he did. Well, not the valuable part.”
“Also an idiot.”
#6 Kaz being
the bastard of the Barrel, the demon full of tricks, the mad man everyone feared a 17 year old with a crush

She danced around him in the snow, poking his chest, his stomach, his side. “Goodness! You’re very solid. This is strenuous work.” He started to laugh. “It’s working! The beguiling has begun. The Fjerdan has fallen. You are powerless to resist me.”
#9 Heartbreaking, emotional and painful love declarations
“Maybe I liked your stupid face.”
