The Hounds of the Mórrígan Quote IV

"She is nearly as hungry as fire, which is the hungriest thing on land."
"Is it?' Pidge asked, wondering about wolves with sharp teeth and hyenas and jackals, whose very nature seemed to be hunger.

-The Hounds of the Mórrígan, Pat O'Shea

Ranger's Apprentice: The Ruins of Gorlan Quote II

Halt sighed impatiently. Keeping this old chatterbox's mind on the subject was beginning to make him short-tempered. "That's right, a castle. Now go to the guard at the gate..."
"Is it a big castle?" asked the old fellow.
"It's a huge castle!" Halt roared at him.

The Star of Kazan Quote V

"Mine," he said again, and his mother nodded, for it did not seem to her at all surprising that the heavens had opened and thrown a flower at the feet of her magnificent son. This, after all, was Vienna.
