Quotes Edit

Her streak of curiosity was a pain in the ass sometimes. [1]
"I promise I won't approach Raphael . . . unless I think you're in lethal danger. That's all you're going to get." — Sara to Elena[7]
He’d accepted, Sara knew, for the same reason she would. “Someone has to do the job.” But it was also a calling of sorts—she knew she’d love being director, that it would challenge and excite her in ways normal hunting couldn’t hope to match. [10]
“I don’t need a knight,” she said, knowing full well this was about more than physical strength alone. “I’m not a queen to hide behind my troops. I’m a general.” — Sara to a group of vampires sent to test her [11]
"If a naked blade could speak, that's what it would sound like." — Sara about Raphael in the Quiet. [15]
"You really fucking think I'd let you barter your soul so easily?" She hung up. [15]
Sara stared upward, tears rolling down her cheeks. The Archangel of New York was falling, and in his arms, he carried a body that streamed bright near white hair...and there was nothing they could do. It was like she was seeing things in slow motion, watching as her best friend lay broken in an archangel's arms, those magnificent wings shredded beyond redemption. There was no time to prepare a soft landing, the wreckage below them full of jagged shards...[21]
Her eyes blurred, and for a second, she thought she was imagining the wings filling her vision. They surrounded Raphael, soft, dark shadows in the pitch blackness of the night that had fallen over Manhattan. ... "They're rising!" She jerked at Ransom's coat, stared. "They're rising!" Raphael and Elena were lost in the mass of wings but Sara didn't care. All that mattered was that they hadn't fallen to earth. "Ellie's alive."[21]
"Yeah. You'll be around to watch over my baby and her babies long after I'm gone." ... "I don't want to talk about that." It made her heart ache to imagine a future without Sara, without Ransom, without Deacon. ... "Silly girl. I think it's wonderful - a gift." [24]
