??? {Mystery Quote #3} ???

Phew!  It’s been two weeks!  Did any of you guess during that bonus week?  Anyway:

Last week’s quote came from The Hobbit by J.R.R Tolkien.  Ellen and Becca guessed the right author–and fantasy world! 🙂 (You’re first guess was right, Ellen.)

I was going to include this part of the quote:

Elves know a lot and are wondrous folk for news, and know what is going on among the peoples of the lands, as quick as water flows, or quicker. (50)

But ‘elves’ definitely would have had to go, and what in the world do you put in the brackets?  [they]?  I don’t know.  So I just cut it off.  Now, for this week’s quote:

A gift.  Was it?  [She] hunched over and hid her face in her ash-smeared hands, resisting the impulse to bang her forehead on the aged stone floor.  And yet… and yet… if she refused, would she ever hear His voice again?

I think this is a pretty obvious one for those of you who have read the book, but maybe not.  It also probably doesn’t make any sense if you haven’t! 🙂

Happy guessing, as Leah would say!

  1. If you would have put the rest of the quote in, I would have TOTALLY got it!!!!
    Hmm, before I saw Spencer’s comment I was thinking that it would be The Prophet! And is the name in brackets the main person you always talk about? 🙂

  2. Sky and I both saw the quote at the same time, and we were like, it’s TOTALLY ‘Prophet’! Love that book! Have you had the chance to read the second book in that series yet? If not, I have a copy of it that I would be happy to let you borrow! ~Savannah

    1. I would love to read ‘Judge’, but I’m not sure when we’d see each other. If we do, I’d love to borrow it! Thank you!
      The first chapter is included in my book of ‘Prophet’, but it’s not very informative! I’ve wanted to read the other books for a long time–I think there’s a third in the series too… have YOU heard anything about a third book?

      1. If you guys are going to Rachel’s walk, I’ll be able to give you ‘Judge’ then.
        The third book is called ‘King’, and I’m pretty excited to read it, though I don’t know exactly when I’ll be able to.
        Did you know that R.J. Larson has written another series (It still has The Infinite in it)? It is called Realms Of The Infinite, and the first book is called Exiles. I’m probably going to end up reading that book at some point 🙂 ~Savannah

        1. I’m not sure if we’re going to Rachel’s walk, or not. I’ll get back to you on that.
          ‘King’ is what Spencer thought the third book was called. I don’t know where he got that. Did you buy ‘Prophet’ and ‘Judge’?
          I did not know that she had written another series! That’s very interesting.

          1. The only book that I bought was ‘Judge’ (Kinda strange that I didn’t buy ‘Prophet’ first, but I couldn’t wait to read ‘Judge’), but I’m planning on buying both ‘Prophet’ and ‘King’ at some point soon 🙂 ~Savannah
