Knights of the Crown quotes

Knights of the Crown

The Warriors, Volume One

Roland Green

“The idle curiosity of the gods had been the downfall of many men living less dangerously than Pirvan the Thief.”(10)

“He ((Pirvan)) sneezed and thought nasty things about Silgor.

Grimsoar said them aloud. He described Silgor’s parents, habits, brains, and likely fate in some detail and at considerable length.”(40)

“‘To keep Eskaia from becoming infatuated with Jemar the fair?’

‘Is that what you call it? I would have called it wanting to lie down, lift her skirts, and raise her legs.'” (136)

“Grimsoar snatched his cutlass free and wished he were as agile as Pirvan, able to kick up under the shield and take the minotaur in a painful if not deadly spot. That would end the big bull’s enthusiasm for hacking a reputation out of human bodies.” (222)

“She ((Eskaia)) would not fall down in a faint over a mere narrow escape from capture or death by minotaurs. She would save that for something serious, such as proposal of marriage or being with child.” (230)

“‘I had not thought to receive your dowry,’ Jemar said. ‘But neither had I thought to pay bride-price.’

‘You did not think about many things,’ Eskaia said, ‘But I understand that is common when a man is hot for a woman.'” (303)
