Have you ever wanted to know what it's like to be immortal?
To journey through the night stalking the evil that preys on humans?
To have unlimited wealth, unlimited power?
That is my existence, and it is dark and dangerous.
I play hero to thousands, but... read more
“You are so very tempting. But I have a job to do...”Kyrian
“I've called in the Oracles and they are communing with the Fates. But you know how they are. I'm sure it'll come back as "When the sky is green, and the earth turns black, Daimons will give you lots of flack. To kill the great awful one you seek, you'll have to find something unique." Or some bullshit like that. I really hate the Oracles.”Acheron
“If I wanted to play mind games, I'd buy a Rubik's cube.”Acheron
“Personally, I wish D. would come after me, I need a good dance partner. My Daimons have lame legs.”Acheron
“Picture this, General, my middle finger is extended all the way up, and aimed right at you. Now let me work. I have Daimons to track, Dark-Hunters to antagonize, and women to seduce.”Acheron
“Are you going to suck my blood?" He arched a sardonic brow. "Do I look like a lawyer to you?”Amanda and Kyrian
“My God, can it be you actually answered a question? Holy cow, we'd better call Tate in here quick before you keel over dead or undead or whatever it is you vampires do.”Amanda
“And not a single mark on the Lamborghini. Ha! Eat steel, you soul-sucking bastards.”Kyrian
“I've called in the Oracles and they are communing with the Fates. But you know how they are. I'm sure it'll come back as "When the sky is green, and the earth turns black, the Daimons will give you lots of flack. To kill the great awful one you seek, you'll have to find something unique." Or some bullshitlike that. I really hate Oracles. If I wanted to play mind games, I'd buy a Rubik's Cube." "I don't know, Ash, you're pretty good at that. Sure you don't want to take up an Oracle position?”Acheron and Kyrian
“Sounds to me like you need a few therapy sessions with Grace." "Right, like I need dating advice from a sex therapist who married a Greek sex slave she conjured out of a book. No, thanks.”Selena, Amanda
“Look, I'm stuck with you right now, and I want an answer." "No you don't." "All right, macho babe boy. I'm not some little ditz to bat my eyelashes at the buff stud in black leather. Don't try your he-man tactics with me." Kyrian frowned at her. "Macho babe boy? Buff stud in black leather. I don't think I've ever been more insulted." "Then you must have been an only child.”Amanda, Kyrian
“If anyone asks, tell them I died of a heart attack during a wild sexcapade with her.”Kyrian
“So, how long have you been a vampire?" "I told you, I'm not a vampire. I'm a Dark-Hunter." "What's the difference?" "The difference is I normally don't kill humans, but if you don't stop quizzing me, I might make an exception.”Amanda, Kyrian
“And another thing, I really have to go to the bathroom." Hunter laughed out loud. "It's not funny. Any idea how we can do this without my dying of embarrassment?" "More than that, any idea on how to do that without my getting arrested for being in the ladies room" She cut a sharp glare at him. "If you think I'm going into the men's room, forget it." "Then I hope you can hold it." "I am not going into the men's room!" Five minuets later, she was in the men's room and cursing Hunter under her breath. "You really get off on being a bully, don't you?”Amanda, Kyrian
“Oh God, I just kissed a vampire!" "Oh gods, I just kissed a human!"”Amanda, Kyrian
“Only the people who need to know, know what I am." "I guess I'm privileged, then." "'Cursed' would be more appropriate." "No, when you're not being sarcastic, scary, or bullish, you're actually not bad to be around. Of course, I've only been around you for about two minutes when you weren't one of those three things, so who am I to judge?”Kyrian, Amadna
“I thought only a wooden stake through the heart killed a vampire." "A wooden stake through the heart will kill just about anything. And if it doesn't, run like hell. Again, my lady, you watch too much television. Don't you have a life?”Amanda, Kyrian
“What are you doing?" "I'm getting into my car." Her jaw dropped. "You own this?" "No," he said sarcastically. "I'm stealing it with the keys in my hand." "Good Lord, you must be loaded!" "It's amazing how much savings you can accumulate in two thousand years." "Is that really how old you are?" "Two thousand one hundred and eighty-two years old last July, to be precise." "You look good for an old man. I wouldn't have put you a day over three hundred myself.”Amanda, Kyrian
“Now, ain't this a bitch. Here I am, trying to kiss my girl, and you have to interrupt us. What, were you raised in a barn? By the way, touch the woman- or the Lamborghini- and you're a dead man." Another beautiful, blond vampire jumped on the hood as Hunter put the car in reverse and hit the gas. His fangs bared, the vampire tried to punch through the windshield. "Didn't I tell you not to touch the Lamborghini?”Kyrian
“Lights! Lights would be very good right now!" "Since they hurt my eyes to the point I can barely see, no they wouldn't. Trust me." "Trust you, my left food. I'm not immortal over here." "Yeah, well, in a bad enough car wreck, neither am I." "I really hate your sense of humor.”Amanda and Kyrian
“Gee, thanks, Dad. I promise to be a good boy and play nice with the other kids." Julian laughed. "Smart-ass." "Better than a dumb-ass.”Kyrian, Julian
“Have a nice life, Cupcake." "Cupcake?" "After the 'buff stud in black leather' remark, I figured I owed you one.”Kyrian, Amanda
“'Accounting' a career guaranteed to one day replace tranquilizers.”
“I say we should stake him to an anthill and throw little pickles at him.”Selena
