From volume 12:
He thought of a lot of things, none that were practical, and most of which were rash in the extreme, and he knew, sensibly speaking, that a stray, pale human in run-down boots and a pale dress coat wandering through the lines of fire was just not going to end well.
The known catch-up readers are getting close to the current volume goal fast: linzday has finished "Deceiver" (volume 11) and, when last heard from, hadesgirl was reading "Deliverer" (volume 9). At this rate I'll soon have to find some other very-little-thought-required posting amusement. At least until I get hold of the fifteenth book, "Peacemaker", which now has an official release date of April 1, 2014. ;-)
