Warded Wednesday: Favorite Lines

Posted by Karen

Hey everyone! One of the best things about The Demon Cycle are those little moments– The lines of dialogue or description that stick with you long after you’ve put the book down. These can be happy, sad, or just plain emotional. For example, one of my favorite lines is the very last one of Daylight War.

Yeah. That one.

For this week, we’re asking about those memorable moments:

We’re curious! If someone said it, who? Let us know what made you think of it. If one doesn’t pop into your head, feel free to look through a book for ideas. You can submit more than one. Also, please try to keep these relatively spoiler-free!!

  2. “Raise your head, son of Jeph. I have never met a man who fought the alagai harder than you. If you could not stop them then they could not be stopped.”
    Such a pivotal point in the relationship between Arlen and Jardir.

  4. “Love nothing so much you cannot leave it at the bargaining table.”

    I thought long and hard about this sentence when I first read it. It’s a rather complex statement. Depending on the school of thought with which you defend or argue against it, you can strongly agree AND disagree with this statement. It calls into question the nature and essence of love. From a negotiations vantage point, it is an excellent strategy with which to enter into negotiations. It’s a rather logical statement. It has Machiavellian tones. It is a labyrinthian sentence that made me ponder many things, not the least of which what PVB intended when he wrote it.

  5. “We are what we chose to be, girl ‘ she said, ‘Let others determine your worth, and you’ve already lost, because no one wants people worth more than themselves.”- Herb Gatherer Bruna of Cutter’s Hollow to Leesha. (The Warded Man)

    One of my favorite lines in the first book. The hag Bruna was a wise old lady for sure. This is indeed a very strong message specially for those who have been bullied. Never let yourself down just because of what other people say or think about who you are. Just be confident and be yourself! <3

  6. “Breath is life, If you have breath you have your center. If you have your center nothing can truly touch you” Qeva to Inevera, Daylight War

    Inevera is my favorite character, she would not have become who she is with out Qeva. I feel this quote was not only her push to be great, but what she falls back on countless times when times got hard.

  7. As the rock demon collapsed into ashes soon borne on the morning wind, he saw hope for the human race.
    Arlens thoughts when one arm was vanquished and the fighting wards were rediscovered.
