Favorite Quotes

    "I'd completely understood that she needed to be moved and quickly, but I didn't agree with how Apollo had done it.
    He'd hit her with a god-bolt. And I'd punched him.
    I was surprised that I was alive.

    "Dont't get me wrong. I like Alex. I think she's a pretty cool kid," Solos went on. "But isn't it more humane to put her out of her misery instead-"
My fist connected with his jaw before I even knew what I was doing. His head jerked back as he staggered to the side. I shot forward, grabbing him by his shirt, and slammed him into the wall, rattling several paintings.
    "Aiden!" Marcus yelled.
    "We are not going to harm Alex," I snarled, lifting the Sentinel onto the tips of his boots.

    "You don't know shit. You sure as hell don't know the lengths I will go to to keep her safe."

    "As entertaining as you going all grrr on Solos is, we need to talk," came Apollo's booming voice from inside the den. "So knock it off, Aiden."

    "Oh, you going to hit me again? I kind of liked it that first time."

    "I am not one of your servants, brother. Next time I will break that finger off and shove it so far up your-"
    "We have an audience." Apollo gestured toward us, and I was sure we all wore the same expression of shock and awe. "And no one wants to hear about the things you like to do in your spare time, Dionysus."

    Apollo looked around the room for help. Solos stepped back, raising his hands. "Don't look at me - I'd like to keep my face in one piece, thank you."
    I smirked.

    "You've always been so strong - unique. Only you controlled your life. No one made decisions for you. But this - not even questioning or fighting what's happening - is weak."
    Alex's eyes flew open. "I am not weak."
    "Then prove it!"

    Apollo had said he knew what this kind of love was capable of. And I finally understood why Paris had risked his country and his blood for Helen. Selfish, yes, but I understood. I would burn down the world if that meant Alex would be safe.

    "Did I ever tell you about the first time I saw you?"
    She shivered. "No."
    Closing my eyes, I felt her snuggle closer. My hand curled into the thick material of her sweater. I rested my chin on her head. "I was sixteen and you were probably fourteen."
    "I can't remember fourteen."
    "That's okay. I remember for the both of us."

    "Did you know me then?" she asked sleepily.
    "No." I held her closer, as if I could somehow pull her inside me and keep her safe. "But I knew, in that moment, you were amazing."

    "Love is such a wild and reckless creature. It cannot be planned or threaded. It cannot be controlled. Love can coexist with Fate, or it can undo it. Love is the only thing more powerful than Fate."

    Solos still stared. "Aiden has gone Rambo on us."

    Alex would get no more doses, and when the Elixir wore off, I would do what I felt was the worst thing possible. I'd place her back in the cell, and then I'd wait.
    I'd fight.
    Alex. Seth. A whole slew of gods if necessary. No one was going to take Alex. No one was going to give up on her or hurt her - not even Alex.
