Spiderlight - Adrian Tchaikovsky

Awesome retort (and childish):

"Your deacon's a corrupted secondary source!"

I'm easily amused, apparently.


You know, in any other book, the priestess Dion would be portrayed as an admirable character, but we see her hypocrisy in her treatment of Nth (the spider). The whole reasoning wherein the creatures of Darkness can't feel pain because only the Light allows you to feel pain (there were a few more details admittedly) has me shaking my head.
