Words Made Flesh #2
Author: AdriAnne Strickland
Release Date: August 8th, 2015
Publisher:  Flux Books
When Tavin Barnes escaped Eden City with Khaya, the Word of Life, he became the most-wanted fugitive overnight. But he never expected his flight would end with the ultimate curse: becoming the next Word of Death. Now he's a prisoner inside the Athenaeum, where his new life under the Godspeakers' control has begun.

As the Word of Death, Tavin can kill with a touch, an ability he must learn to harness or risk hurting the people he cares for. But Ryse, the Godspeaker charged with Tavin's training, is pushing him to be as ruthless as she is. Her goal: make Tavin an elite assassin, whether he wants to be or not. His first target: the Chinese ambassador to Eden City ... and that's just the beginning.

Top Ten Quotes from Wordless/Lifeless (in chronological order):

“Maybe the Words liked to take credit for Eden City being so clean, as if one of them was the Word of Trash Removal, shooting sunbeams out of his ass to scour the street… but no.”
“She looked like a dark goddess in the shining golden grass, a piece of night shoved out of the sky by dawn.”
“I was surrounded by death—death on either side, at my fingertips, in my mouth, in my head.”
“It had taken seven days for the two Nameless Gods to create the world with their Words, or so the stories said, and seven days for the Words to destroy my life.”
“’Now that you have both humility and power, I guess we’ll see what the result will be… admiration or fear.’” 
“Life probably wasn’t reaching peak potential when you could relate to a puppy.”
“It was an endless cycle of monsters making monsters to supposedly kill other monsters.”
“It was like I’d been so desperately trying not to drown that I hadn’t noticed I’d sunk so low.”
“’If the world needs me so much, don’t you think you should share?’”
“I was—and held—the key to an entire arsenal. And the frightening thing was, I was ready to use it.”
