Ahem, this is what she said:

"I appreciate your assistance, and I wish I could offer you the reward your gallantry deserves, but I'm afraid that I'm going to have to ask you to surrender."

The second-greatest moment in the series for me, bar none. I'm pretty sure I screamed aloud.

(The greatest, of course, is the following:

"'I apologize for waking you up in the middle of the night, Your Majesty,' President Eloise Pritchart said calmly, 'but I think we need to talk.'"

....needless to say, at that moment, I did scream aloud. :mrgreen: )


Mine's part of the same development, and it's a one-liner:

"Ma'am...it's Haven One."

Goosebumps just typing it...

To me, Ginny's greatest moment.
Stein Funeral.

I can't imagine why, but I hope that you can run very, very quickly.

"It occurs to me that if _House of Lies_ includes a story then Eloise Pritchart would be a possible protagonist with much of it set before her first appearance in _Honor Among Enemies_."

From FoD:

"It was odd, a corner of her brain thought. She'd heard so many tales about the way love could save one's sanity; no one had ever told her hate could do the same."

also:

She felt . . . empty. Emptier than the wind or space itself, sucked clean by the silent undertow of entropy.
