Shubj is also looking for this one, and this question comes to us in a different format than usual. All she’s got for us is a sort of “quote” that she remembers.
Almost sounds like something Barron would say (from KMM’S Fever series). *swoooooon*
…there is another book and I don’t even remember its plot but it has one line that i absolutely can’t forget –
…world shouldn’t give someone to love to someone as powerful as me…
Do you recognize this one?
Elaina: I’m leaning more towards Charles Cornick in Patricia Briggs’s Alpha and Omega. He makes a similar statement in Fair Game. Gimme a bit and I’ll find the quote.
Elaina: Okay, Charles empathized and agreed but it’s the fae who says this.
“I told them,” he said in a clear, carrying voice, “that they should not give someone as old and powerful as I a daughter to love. That it would end badly.”
Charles tilted his head back and called back, ‘I suppose that’s why they call you the five minute wonder.’
― Patricia Briggs, Fair Game
Maryse: THANK YOU ELAINA!!! This looks like EXACTLY what she’s looking for!! 😃 And since you gave me the book title, I was able to find these very similar quotes from the same book, so I have NO doubt this is the one.
“It is not wise to give something old and powerful something they care about. And I am very old.”
“People as old and powerful as he should never be given someone to love. For Anna he would destroy the world.”
