"Turtle and Kinkajou flying in the sky, getting all K-I-S-S-Y..."
Make it something really cool, like his insides exploding. Or his face falling of. I'm kidding! I'm a little bit kidding. I mean, insides exploding would be pretty cool right? Never mind.
-Peril (pg. 14)
"All right. You're not a dragon who likes compliments, I see. So I'll be blunt. I don't want to begin my reign as king of the NightWings by killing one of my subjects, especially one who could be such a valuable asset in rebuilding our tribe. Given the utter failure of all her schemes so far, and her relation to Starflight, my proposal is this: grant her your mercy and give her to me. Tomorrow I'll take her to the Night Kingdom with me, where she'll have no reason to bother you anymore. She can be my problem instead."
- Darkstalker to Queen Glory about Fierceteeth ( page 179 )
"He looks like he's posing for a portrait. Pompous Sneerdagard the Magnificent Awaits His Legions of Doomed Enemies."
- Kinajou about Darkstalker ( page 174 )
"Queen Glory doesn't usually allow that much fire in our forest. There are strict rules for the NightWings about how and when and how carefully to use it. She's definitely fallen for that baboon butt's act."
- Kinkajou to Turtle ( page 173 )
"OOOOOOOO, totally invisible to Darkstalker! That is an excellent spell. Another great idea, see? We'll be an awesome team. You can be the idea dragon and I can be the WHAM BAM SHOVE A PINEAPPLE UP HIS SNOUT dragon!"
- Kinajou to Turtle ( page 171-172 )
"There's no need to be brave. I'm no monster. The history you've been fed is a pack of lies. They told you I was evil, that I was about to do terrible things, and that I was locked away to protect you. None of that is true, my fellow NightWings. I had a majestic future planned for our tribe. Power and security and wealth and peace for every dragon. No running, no hiding, no lying or starving or living in fear. But there were dragons who didn't trust my vision for us. They feared what our tribe could become. I was betrayed on the brink of changing everything. Dragons I thought I could trust trapped me underground, where I've been asleep against my will for the last two thousand years. Meanwhile, our tribe fell apart - lost its power, its home, its position in Pyrrhia. And history scrolls were written about me by deceitful dragons who feared my power."
- Darkstalker to NightWings ( page 122-123 )
