Fandom Quote Friday: Grisha Trilogy

Here is a collection of quotes I liked from the Grisha Trilogy. You may notice a lot of them are about or from Nikolai.

“This was his soul made flesh, the truth of him laid bare in the blazing sun, shorn of mystery and shadow. This was the truth behind the handsome face and the miraculous powers, the truth that was the dead and empty space between the stars, a wasteland peopled by frightened monsters.”

~Alina on The Darkling, Shadow and Bone

“When people say impossible, they usually mean improbable.”

~ Sturmhond, Siege and Storm

“Watch yourself, Nikolai,” Mal said softly. “Princes bleed just like other men.”
Nikolai plucked an invisible piece of dust from his sleeve. “Yes,” he said. “They just do it in better clothes.”

~ Nikolai and Mal, Siege and Storm

“Of course not,” said Sturmhond. “Anything worth doing always starts as a bad idea.”

Siege and Storm

“I hope you weren’t looking to me to be the voice of reason. I keep to a strict diet of ill-advised enthusiasm and heartfelt regret.”

~Nikolai, Ruin and Rising

“I saw the prince when I was in Os Alta,” said Ekaterina. “He’s not bad looking.”
“Not bad looking?” said another voice. “He’s damnably handsome.”
Luchenko scowled. “Since when—”
“Brave in battle, smart as a whip.” Now the voice seemed to be coming from above us. Luchenko craned his neck, peering into the trees. “An excellent dancer,” said the voice. “Oh, and an even better shot.”
“Who—” Luchenko never got to finish. A blast rang out, and a tiny black hole appeared between his eyes.
I gasped. “Imposs—”
“Don’t say it,” muttered Mal.”

~ Alina and Mal, Ruin and Rising

 

“Thanks for the rescue.”

“Everyone needs a hobby.”

“I thought yours was preening.”

“Two hobbies.”

~ Alina and Nikolai, Ruin and Rising
