The Beginning


  • I hear and obey, akri.  The Simi just never said she would do so quietly.  (Simi Parthenopaeus, The Beginning)
  • To look at him was to want him.  To see him was to ache to touch him.  He had been built to please, and trained to pleasure.  Everything abut him from the sleek muscles that rippled to the deep, erotic timber in his voice seduced anyone who came into contact with him.  Like a wild animal, he moved with a primal promise of danger and masculine power.  With the promise of supreme sexual fulfillment.  They were promises he delivered well on. In all eternity, he was the only man who made her weak.  The only man she had ever loved.  (Artemis, The Beginning)
  • No one lasts alone, Acheron.  No one.  Not even you.  (Artemis, The Beginning)
  • What he'd been was so desperate for someone to care about him that he had ignored the darker side of her nature.  Ignored it until she had turned her back on him and left him to die.  (Acheron, The Beginning)
  • She'd forgotten just how devious Acheron could be.  How well he knew the rules of the game and how to manipulate them and her.  (Artemis, The Beginning)
  • Because the soul needs something to motivate it to movement, otherwise it stays where it is.  I use vengeance to motivate the soul into my possess.  Only an equal and as powerful an emotion will motivate the soul back into its body.  Since I can choose that emotion, I choose it to be love.  The most beautiful and noble of all emotions.  The only one worth returning for.  (Artemis, The Beginning)
  • Love.  Trust.  Such simple words to say.  Such powerful words to feel.  He envied those who knew their true meaning.  (Acheron, The Beginning)
  • Everything has a price, boy.  Nothing ever comes to anyone for free.  (Estes, The Beginning)
  • Acheron had paid dearly for everything he'd ever had or wanted...Paid with flesh and blood.  Some things never changed.  (Acheron, The Beginning)
  • Tell me, Acheron, is there anyone you will ever trust enough to release your soul?  (Artemis, The Beginning)
