"All true, they assured him…"

So I started reading The Bards of Bone Plain by Patricia McKillip, who is my favorite author. Her words and so beautiful and transports readers to her world. Here are few quotes from the book that I loved (there are more, but I can’t choose!):

Sometimes they’d tell him tales of magic and power, the toothless, dreamy-eyed old ones, as they hugged the hearths for warmth. All true, they assured him. All true, once, a long time ago…

He ran his hands over his face, up through his disheveled hair, picked what looked like a small snail out of it. 

A voice out of nowhere filled his head, at once lilting and sinewy.
You found me once. You found me twice. The third time is the charm.
