    “Why are you here?” “Rochelle is being hunted.” “So you bring her to the pack?” The woman laughed. “By a sorcerer.” The woman stilled. Every line of her face and body smoothed out to neutral. Then, looking at me again, she whispered. “What sorcerer?” “Blackwell,” I said.A slow, scary grin spread across her lovely face. I could suddenly see the wolf underneath her skin — or at least her capacity to be a wolf. Beau shuddered, looking resolutely at her feet. “Please —” “Blackwell,” she repeated. “Anything that sorcerer wants, I’m more than willing to keep from him.” (Oracle One..I See Me)

    I do so love how the Pack just hates Blackwell so much. (Grin)

    The bit in I See You where Kandy casually discusses killing Cy with Beau and then Rochelle is like, “But where would we hide the body?”

    I laughed hard through the initial read and then laughed again when rereading for the contest. Yes, I reread both for the contest.

    This quote is my favorite because Rochelle has finally accepted this is not a mental illness, that this is all real, and yes, dragons too. She is slowly accepting who she is, and she isn’t at all concerned about killing a bad guy who is harming her Beau, just where they would put the body. She went from being terrified of herself, to a stronger person, and I think this simple sentence from her says so much about that.

    Jade laughed. A lot. She laughed at everything she couldn’t control. Not lightly or offishly, but in acknowledgement that she couldn’t control it. And she survived. I wasn’t going to develop a chocolate or cupcake obsession that I didn’t have the funds to support. But I could co-opt her other coping mechanism. Jade laughed, so I tried to laugh.
    I hope that quoting from the third book is ok. Made me very happy that Rochelle is able to laugh now, even as a coping mechanism.
