Quote tastic

 

Quote-Tastic is a weekly Monday meme hosted by Herding Cats and Burning Soup. Open your books (or turn on your devices) and pick your book’s quotable quote.

RoS     Walker stares at me for a long moment, then turns around and goes back to typing coded messages into her phone. ‘I didn’t realize I was teaming up with some hippy-dippy peacenik aliens,’ she sighs.

     ‘Fine. If you can talk Sanderson into flipping sides in front of the UN, go for it. But if I’m not convinced, I’m shooting him.’

‘Sure,’ I reply to Walker. ‘You’re in charge.’

      We stop at a gas station in New Jersey to fill up the SUVs. Since I’ve got a few minutes alone, I decide it’s a good time to check in with Sarah. I take out my phone and wander across the parking lot.

          As I do, I can feel Walker’s eyes boring into my back.

          ‘Where are you going?’ she calls after me.

         ‘To call my girlfriend,’ I say, raising the phone. ‘Remember? You illegally detained her that one time.’

          ‘Oh, great,’ Walker replies. I can hear her mutter to the driver. ’We’re depending on a bunch of horny teenagers to save the world.’

 

–  Four and Agent Walker
Chapter 19, The Revenge of Seven

 

This is an excerpt from Pittacus Lore’s The Revenge of Seven, the fifth installment of the Lorien Legacies. The Garde have decided to split up into two separate missions and find themselves with unexpected allies.  And yes, I just love Agent Walker’s snark.

Learn more about Lorien, the battle of the Garde and  Pittacus Lore’s chronicles at his official websites from Razorbill & Penguin Books and HarperCollins. Find out what others have posted for their Quote-Tastic Monday at Herding Cats and Burning Soup then hustle on over to Camille at The Girl Meets Books and Duch at Komorebi Days to know their pick.

  1. I have zero idea what they’re talking about but I like the dynamic going on between these two characters. Amusing and fun to read. Thanks for sharing Lorn! 🙂
