Rezension vom 15.08.2013
"Don't worry, Mel. Miracles don't work that way. I'll never lose you. I'll never let you get away from me." (p.78 )
"You never know how much time you'll have." (p.78 )
"I think... Well, I think that maybe... you're dying to be human. [...] After all the planets and all the hosts you've left behind, you've finally found the place and the body you'd die for. I think you've found your home, Wanderer" (p.111)
"So, today wasn't that bad," Jeb said as we walked through the dark corridor.
"Not that bad," I murmured. After all, I hadn't been murdered. That was always a plus. (p.234)
"Things are settling down," Ian commented to Jeb.
"Knew they would. We're all reasonable folks here."
I frowned to myself.
"That's true, ate the moment," Ian said, laughing. "My brother's not around."
"Exactly," Jeb agreed. (p.237-238)
"Her name is Wanda, not it. You will not touch her. Any mark
you leave on her, I will double on your worthless hide." (p.289)
"Jared makes everything safe, everything happy. Even houses." (p.293)
"It didn't fall!" he complained.
Jared lunged forward, away from me. With a loud smacking
sound, his fist hit Kyle's face.
Kyle's eyes rolled back in his head, and his mouth fell slack.
The room was very quiet for a few seconds.
"Um," Doc said in a mild voice, "medically speaking, I'm not sure
that was the most helpful thing for his condition."
"But I feel better," Jared answered, sullen. (p.345-346)
"We girls have to stick together." (p.347)
"The decision is. The process is... painful."
Why should that have surprised him so? Wasn't it the same for his kind?
"Men." Mel snorted. (p.349)
"We got a bloody queen mother alien living with us. She could blow into a million new buggers at any moment." (p.349)
"Here's how it's gonna work. Straight-up majority vote. As usual, I'll make my own decision if I have a problem with the majority, 'cause this-"
"Is my house," several voices interjected in chorus. (p.361)
"Anyone who tries to hurt Wanda again will not get a tribunal, they will get a burial." (p.364)
"You're my very favorite person in the known universe." (p.397)
"Ready to be humiliated, Wanda?" Wes taunted. "You may have taken the planet, but you're losing this game." (p.397)
"Ian sat with me for three days in the darkness.He left for only a few short minutes at a time, to get us food and water. At first, Ian ate, though I did not. Then, as he realized that it wasn't a loss of appetite that left my tray full, he stopped eating, too." (p.415)
"I'm warning you, Mel," Jared said, still smiling widely. Teasing. "You better stay right here. I'm not making any guarantees about what I will or won't do to get you back." (p.433)
"You did it." His tone was full of wonder.
"Wasn't that the idea?"
"Yes, but... I guess I didn't really think we were going to make it out."
"You didn't? Then why...? Why did you let me try?"
He answered in a soft almost-whisper. "I figured it was better to die trying than to live without the kid."
For a moment, my throat was choked with emotion. Mel was too overcome to speak as well. We were a family in that one instant. All of us. (p.459)
What was it that made this human love so much more desirable to me than the love of my own kind? Was it because it was exclusive and capricious? The souls offered love and acceptance to all. Did I crave a greater challenge? This love was tricky; it had no hard-and-fast rules - it might be given for free, as with Jamie, or earned through time and hard work, as with Ian, or completely and heartbreakingly unattainable, as with Jared.
Or was it simply better somehow? Because these humans could hate with so much fury, was the other end of the spectrum that they could love with more hear and zeal and fire?
I didn't know why I had yearned after it so desperately. All I knew was that, now that I had it, it was worth every ounce of risk and agony it had cost. It was better than anything I'd imagined.
It was everything. (p.470)
Ian groaned. "If she goes, I'm going, too," he said in a bleak tone.
"Someone has to protect her from herself."
"And I'll be there to protect the rest of us from her," Kyle said with a chuckle. Then he grunted and said, "Ow."
I was too tired to lift my head to see who had hit Kyle now.
"And I'll be there to bring you all back alive," Jared murmured. (p.472)
"This is my planet, it truly is." (p.512)
Jeb had given her [Lacey] the usual tour the next day, trying to explain, through chlenched teeth, the way we all lived here. When they'd passed me - eating in the kitchen with Ian and Jamie - he threw me a look that clearly asked why I hadn't let Aaron shoot her while that was still an option. (p.538)
"Wanda?" Kyle asked.
"For trying to kill you," he said casually. "Guess I was wrong."
Ian gasped. "Please tell me you have some kind of recording device availiable, Doc."
"Nope. Sorry, Ian."
Ian shook his head. "This moment should be preserved. I never thought I'd live to see the day that Kyle O'Shea would admit to being wrong. C'mon, Jodi. That ought to shock you awake." (p.583)
"I have to go, Sunny, just like you. I have to give my body back, too."
And then, flat and hard from right behind us, Ian's voice broke the quiet like the crack of a whip.
"You. Are. Not. Leaving. Me." (p.570)
With Ian it was different, so very different, because Melanie didn’t love him the way I did. So when he touched me, it was deeper and slower than the wildfire, like the flow of molten rock far beneath the surface of the Earth. Too deep to feel the heat of it, but it moved inexorably, changing the very foundations of the world with its advance.
My unwilling body was a fog between us-a thick curtain, but gauzy enough that I could see through it, could see what was happening.
It changed me, not her. It was an almost metallurgical process deep inside the core of who I was, soothing that had already begun, was already nearly forget. But this long unfinished kiss finished it, searing and sharp edged – it shoved this new creation, all hissing into the cold water that made it hard and final. Unbreakable.
And I started to cry again, realising that it must be changing him too, this man who was kind enough to be a soul but strong as only a human could be. (p.573)
"I, the soul called Wanderer, love you, human Ian. And that will never change, no matter what I might become." [...] "If I were a Dolphin or a Bear or a Flower, it wouldn't matter. I would always love you, always remember you. You will be my only partner." (p.573-574)
"You are the noblest, purest creature I've ever met. The universe will be a darker place without you," he whispered. (p.592)
I drifted into the black, and it got brighter and brighter. It wasn't black at all - it was blue. Warm, vibrant, brilliant blue... I floated into it with no fear at all. (p.592)
A color washed through my mind - acolor that called to me from a faraway life - a brilliant, glowing blue. The whole universe was bright blue... (p.600)
My searching eyes found the blue I'd been looking for. Sapphire, snow, and midnight. (p.600)
"I held you in my hand, Wanderer. And you were so beautiful." (p.605)
Das letzte Zitat ist mein persönliches Highlight des Buches: Ian und Wanda...
Es gibt natürlich noch viel mehr tolle, lustige, traurige, nachdenkliche Stellen - ich habe zum Beispiel noch gar nichts von Jamie, glaube ich -
