Quotes Edit

"This is the problem with even lesser demons. They come to your doorstep in velvet coats and polished shoes. They tip their hats and smile and demonstrate good table manners. They never show you their tails" p. 143

"Droessen knew the properties of every kind of wood and paint and lacquer; he could finesse the gears of a clock until they spun with silent precision. And yet, though he could smile readily, charm easily, and play the part of a gentleman, he had never truly understood people or the workings of their steady-running but constant hearts" p. 148

"Are you my soldier? ... Are you my prince? Are you my darling? Are you mine?" p. 152

"He'd fought bravely, and yet somehow, he always ended up here, alone in the dark" p. 159

"Wanting is why people get up in the morning. It gives them something to dream about at night. The more I wanted, the more I became like them, the more real I became" p. 161
