    Two of my favorite quotes would have to be:
    "Lies. Mab cannot change who you are"
    Uriel
    and
    "I will be the Winter Knight. I will be the most terrifying Knight the Sidhe Courts have ever known. I will send your enemies down in defeat and make your power grow. But I do it my way. On my terms. When you give me the task, I'll decide how it gets done - and you'll stay out of the way and let me work. And that's how it's going to be."

    I was going to do this line, but I bolded the part that's the problem. Goes to something me and Tehan were talking about earlier that I brought to him. I'm personally doubt its Uriel that said that. With the description given in the text:

    Tehan's point of the word 'gentle' in there sort of not being like the others in terms of it being Uriel was a good one.
    Personally, I think its Lash.

    In hindsight, this is probably one of my favorite lines in the book. :awesome

    The problem with "Be" is that the conclusion to that is Harry accomplishing absolutely nothing and going down like a bitch. He'd have been better off if he'd stayed incorporeal.

    He saved Morty who saved Molly. How is that nothing?

    He could have gone incorporeal afterwards, and he's seen lots of ghosts to poltergeist stuff that must be less challenging than manifesting a whole body.

    You sound like one of those ff.net reviewers that want the writer to twist the story toward their personal preference. "Greatz story, but Draco shud really hav fucked Harry in a moonlit hollow on Halloween, coz he's upset about hiz paraents."

    Well, maybe not quite so bad. I'd have to do a read again, but could a poltergeist have the will/reasoning/ability to free Mort? Aren't they, for the most part, batshit insane? And not the good kind of insane.

    Only crazy powerful ghosts can affect the real world, which Harry wasn't at that point. He knew he could manifest in the real world and that he could somewhat stand a chance against Corpsetaker with his friends on the way down. Kinda. Especially once the ward stones were down.

    No no no. You're all wrong. Best line in the book: "I know you are, but what am I?"

    I may have died. And then laughed hard.

    Not a spoken line, but when Harry possessed Molly and created a wall of real fire, and the thug walked in because he thought it was another illusion...
    Hilarious.

    "You're dead, son. Cheer is contraindicated."

    "Put that phone down or you don't get a tip."

    "You never realised how long a shadow you cast."

    The most awesome dialogues in the book were the ending conversation between Harry and Mab. And this line was the most badass of 'em all:

    And do you know what that will give you, my queen?”
    Her eyes burned. “What?”
    I felt my own smile widen. “A mediocre knight,” I said.
    “And mediocrity, my queen, is a terrible, terrible fate.”

    Fuck Yeah.

    Edit: 200th post. :awesome

    No. Only crazy ghosts can affect the real world, it isn't so much a matter of power as insanity (forcing the world to be something it shouldn't), though I doubt wraiths (or other impersonal ghosts) could pull it off as they lack the personality necessary for the crazy.

    Put it another way, the Corpsetaker didn't eat the murder ghosts for their power, he ate them for their crazy.

    Harry didn't need any extra crazy.

    Be.

    He still expended some power to cross over to the physical world; enough to basically take him out of the fight in any meaningful context.
