    Summary

    The elk appeared out of the shadow of the forest canopy as if materializing in mid-air. He was as tall as the moa, but also had massive antlers that reached up and tangled with the branches on the trees. His coat was a dusty chestnut color with a white starburst over his chest and smattering of white across his cheeks and nose. The elk leaned over the fence and bent his massive head, as if showing Adam deference. To Adam’s right, Destroyer knelt down on her front knees and dipped her nose into the grass.

    To Adam’s left, Ronan bent his head too, like he was about to say grace. When he spoke his voice was soft and low. “I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you. I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh.”

    (Or, the one where Adam is a veterinarian and Ronan has dreamt up a whole menagerie of extinct/magical creatures.)

    There's an annual carnival at St. Agnes. Every year, the Lynch family sponsors the funhouse, which means that it's not your typical sort of house of mirrors.

    Summary

    "As you keep pointing out, I've died twice," said Gansey. He was so bright that Henry almost wanted to look away from him, and so compelling that he couldn't. "I don't care what I'm supposed to be doing."

    Summary

    Adam didn't remember it, but on his third birthday he was almost completely lost in the mountains. Almost completely. To be completely lost would mean that no one tried to look for him. His mother did not look very hard. His father did not look at all. But someone did look -- look inside the forest, which is where he was lost.

    These things always happen in the forest.

    Summary

    Falling for Ronan had felt like going to speak at the same time as someone else after a long silence, two people bumbling over their words to say, no, sorry, go ahead about three times before one of them says what they were going to say.
