Legend (Legend #1) City of Bones (The Mortal Instruments #1)

I crossed my arms, standing over Estelle and Coconut, preparing to protect them from whatever verbal stupidity we’d be subjected to.

The Minister doesn’t plan on any of us coming back from the Above.And even though I realize this, I still want to go. Something in my heart feels like it is opening. I imagine the water outside lightening, too, the deep ocean blue of it turning the color of the sky and the sun. If I could get off the transport this moment and go back home, I wouldn’t do it. Is it because of Bay? Or because True is here? Or because the Above is where I’ve always wanted to be?

Riding on Instinct (Wild Riders #3)

We can’t stay on the transport when we arrive, Maire tells the two of us, her voice quiet. They’re not going to send it back down with anyone aboard, and we’re trapped in here. Our best chance of escape is to get out and do what we can.The sirens aren’t what I expected, I say. They’re so—tame. So controlled.There used to be more of us, Maire says. There used to be more like me.

Kushiels Mercy (Imriels Trilogy #3)

The others were culled and eliminated, Maire says. They were too dangerous.I think Oceana did what she could to protect me, Maire says. And I told you. I am always willing to do what I must to stay alive.

Her voice is hard. I wonder what she has done. I don’t want to ask.

Stay with me when we get Above, Maire says. Do what I say. I promised my sister I would take care of you, and I will.True looks at me. Should we tell Ciro? I shake my head the smallest bit. How can we trust someone we haven’t known for very long with such a secret? Would he even believe us? And what could he do?

And I’ve had another thought. If I turn in Nevio, will they kill him? They might. My voice has to be pure if I’m going to use it the way Maire intended. It can’t have caused someone else’s death. Even Nevio’s.All the sirens are gone, Fen says, shaking his head as if he can’t believe it. He doesn’t know about Nevio, either, of course.

The Museum of Extraordinary Things

We don’t know that, I say. Maire hoped there were more. I don’t say the rest in front of Ciro, but I can tell that Bay knows what I mean. More like me. Hidden sirens. And there are potential sirens not yet born. I think of all those voices that might never have a chance to sing.I’m afraid we don’t have much time to mourn, Ciro says. We need to direct our attention to saving Atlantia. The Council majority has already begun debating how many people should be rescued from the Below. As it stands, anyone who hasn’t had a siren in her bloodline is considered suspect, because one could still appear. Those like you—he looks at Bay and me—who have a siren in your lineage might be allowed to come up and be rehabilitated.

The Minister doesn’t know that I’m a siren.Bay told him about Maire but not about me.

She’s still keeping me safe.She says she trusts Ciro, but she hasn’t told him everything. Something’s kept her from doing it. And if that’s the case, I’d better not tell him about Nevio.

Maire’s words come back to me. There are some things you only tell a sister. And some things you only ask of a sister.Ciro looks at Fen. They’ve also decided that anyone who has lost a family member to water-lung or who is infected with it themselves won’t be rescued.
