…the thing was, Henrietta looked like a place where magic could happen. The valley seemed to whisper secrets.
Adam Parrish & Ronan Lynch + the mask
It was becoming a nightmare. Ronan could hear the night horrors coming, in love with his blood and his sadness. Their wings flapped in time with his heartbeat. He wasn’t in control enough to drive them away.
Because Adam was the horror now. The teeth were something else, Adam was something else, he was a creature, close enough to touch. To think about it was to become immobilized with the horror of watching Adam be consumed from the inside out. Ronan couldn’t even tell where the mask was now; there was only Adam, the monster, a toothful king.
In the pale gray dining room, Adam was taking a wooden mask from a hook on the wall.
Ronan hurled himself through the air.
The mask clattered to the floor. Adam, startled, stared at where Ronan’s hand gripped his wrist. Ronan could feel his own heart pounding and, in Adam’s wrist, Adam’s.

But that night in the churchyard when all of the spirits of the future dead walked past. One year—that was the longest that any of those spirits had. They would all be dead before the next St. Mark’s Eve. She had seen her first spirit: a boy in an Aglionby sweater, the shoulders of it spattered darkly with rain. “What’s your name?” “Gansey.” She couldn’t make it untrue.

”The war had taught me to cherish the present because tomorrow might not ever come to pass. What I didn’t know at the time was that tomorrow would prove to be less important than yesterday.”
