PLEASE read these books before you spoil yourself, the locked tomb series is specially good, if a little complicated

"One for the emperor, first of us all;
One for his lyctors, who answered the call;
One for his Saints, who were chosen of old;
One for his Hands, and the swords that they hold.

Two is for discipline, heedless of trial;
Three for the gleam of a jewel or a smile;
Four for fidelity, facing ahead;
Five for traditions and debts to the dead;
Six for the truth over solace and lies;
Seven for beauty that blossoms and dies;
Eight for salvation no matter the cost;
Nine for the tomb, and for all that was lost."

This was all said somewhat thickly, through pink and bloodied teeth, before Harrow smugly passed out

"You know I don't give a damn about the Locked Tomb, right? You know I only care about you," she said in a broken hearted rush

"I cannot do this."
"You already did it," said Gideon "its done. You ate me and rebuilt me. We cant go home again."
