“Quote-Tastic Monday” is a meme hosted every Monday on Herding Cats & Burning Soup. Head on over there to see what everyone else is posting about this week.
This is the third time I have read/listened to this series and I love it more every time. The plot line is unique to me and that is saying something. I have read so many books over the years that nothing ever seems to be really new to me. There may be a twist, but nothing is completely new. The Others series is an exception. The entire concept is new. And yes, I know I have used the word “new” three times in this paragraph.
Anyway, even though I have read/listened to the series three times, I cannot give you an exact quote because I am listening, not reading in print form. It’s just really hard to find an exact phrase in an Audible book. The two phrases that have stuck with me so far are when Simon (wolf shapeshifter) wants to play with Meg (special type of human, not prey). She is furious with him and he realizes that the only game she probably wants to play is “whack a wolf.”
I love that. For some reason it cracks me up every time I hear it.
The other phrase was coined by Simon to describe Meg and her human pack. Simon came up with the idea, but the other Others have taken to using it as well. (And again yes, I know that I have just typed other Others.) He calls them “exploding fluffballs.” Need I say, he does not call them that to their faces?
These books have become some of my all time favorites. Anything and everything is put aside for a new Others book. I cannot wait until March for Etched in Bone. As the wolf puppies said on their Facebook page, those aren’t etchings, they’re teethmarks. And I can’t wait to get my teeth into the next book.
