Book Quotations Edit

A changeling half-Candela girl with pale green eyes was on front room duty at Home when Toby first returned. she was juggling globes of dim light.[1]

Grianne, a thin faced Candela who rarely spoke without prompting. Her voice was soft was wind rattling through tree branches, and just about as human. [2]

Each Candela is accompanied by two or more balls of self-aware light called Merry Dancers. They can be sent on simple errands- like fetching a Duck- but if someone extinguishes a Candela's Dancers, the Candela dies.[2]

"Grianne, has the Duke been summoned?" Grianne cocked her head like she was listening to something the rest of us couldn't hear.[2]

"Yes, sir," said Grianne, and bowed before turning and flinging herself off the edge of the walkway. There was a flare of greenish-white light, and she was gone.[2]

Grianne was sitting on the railing, with her Merry Dancers spinning around her. Her face was serene as ever, but her skin was glowing a pale green only slightly dimmer than her Merry Dancers, betraying her displeasure. Candela only light up under stress.[3]

Her expression was as bland as ever as she nodded, but her Merry Dancers shifted color, turning a warm yellow. Maybe she wasn't as cold as everyone though. Maybe we just read her wrong. [4]

[Grianne's] Merry Dancers darted downward, spinning around her, and all three were gone, leaving Connor and [Toby] in darkness.[4]

Her face remained impassive, but her Merry Dancers flared a brief, sickly red, outward manifestations of her internal dismay.
