The Strange Power

Book_DarkVisions_TheStrangePower“You don’t invite the local witch to parties.  No matter how beautiful she is.”  (p.1)

“You have something inside you that won’t be repressed.  A hidden power that burns like a flame,” he went on.  “You’re superior to the rest of humanity—don’t ever forget that.”  (Mr. Zetes p.49)

By the way,” he said, turning, “everyone else had better keep out of here. After you spend so much time in lockup, you get to like your space. You get kind of territorial. I wouldn't want anybody to get hurt.” ... Gabriel gave her [Kaitlyn] a long, measuring look. Then he flashed a brilliant, unsettling smile. “You can come in any time you like (Gabriel p. 53)

“He’d have to make sure it was just a diversion.  That kind of girl might be too interesting, might tempt you to get involved. . . And that could never happen again.”  (Gabriel p. 56)

“If everybody could feel that [people’s pain] things would be different.  There wouldn’t be any murder or torture or stuff—because nobody would want to cause pain to anybody else.”  (Rob p. 84)

"Good night, Gabriel.” she said
You jerk.
He widened his eyes. “Don't you want to stay? It's a big bed."
(Kaitlyn and Gabriel p. 113)

“If it had been a touch, it might have been pressure—not an uncomfortable pressure, but one that swept away all the pain of her headache.  Like a river rushing through her mind, clearing out everything stagnant and clotted and decayed.”  (p. 125)

“Why should Gabriel care about her, a girl that was involved with a guy he hated?  A girl who could only disturb him. . . A girl with hair like fire and witch eyes, his mind whispered.  A girl who hounded, badgered him . . . Who challenges you, his mind whispered.  Who could be your equal.”  (p.166)

“Hi, Anna” Kaitlyn said, feeling somewhat resigned herself.
“Hi Kait.”
“Hi, Anna,” Lewis said chirpily.
“And good night, John-boy!”  Gabriel shouted from across the house.  “Shut the hell up, all of you!”
(p. 183)

“It would have been like losing me, like loosing my own soul,” Rob said, but it wasn’t really like him saying it to her, it was like he were simply realizing these things himself.  “And now it’s like finding my soul again.  The other half of me.” (Rob to Kaitlyn p. 237)

“I’m with you.  I belong to you.  I’m a part of you.  I will be forever.”  Kaitlyn didn’t even know which of them was speaking.  The feelings were in both of them.  “We were born for this.”
(Kaitlyn and Rob p. 237)


The Possessed

Book_DarkVisions_The Possessed

“Griffin’s Pit,” Kaitlyn said.  “It sounds—ominous.”
Lewis wrinkled his nose.  “Griffin’s – what?  Oh, you mean Whippin’ Bit.”
“I heard something like ‘Wyvern’s Bit,’” Anna put in.  “But that doesn’t make much sense.”
“Neither does Whiff and Spit,” Rob said.  “Unless it’s some kind of combination perfume and tobacco factory. . . .”
“C’mon down to the Whiff and Spit; snuff it up and cough it out,” Lewis chanted, giving it a catchy rhythm. (p. 291)

“Amazing how he could make her feel safe in a vacant lot, warm in the middle of the night.  Just being close to him, being able to touch his thoughts and feel his presence was comforting—and dizzying.”  (Kaitlyn p. 292)

“Jeez, only a hundred and fifty-something—remind me never to run away with you guys again.”  Lewis said.  (p. 294)

“Not that he regretted having killed the guy in Stockton.  The one who’d been ready to shoot him over the five crumpled dollar bills in his jeans pocket.  He was quite happy to send that particular home boy to hell.”  (about Gabriel p. 323)

“Because she could feel what he felt.  And along with the gratitude, the sheer satisfaction and relief, were other emotions.  Appreciation, joy, wonder, and—oh, dear God, love. . . . Gabriel loved her.”  (Kaitlyn p. 428)

“He had to at least have the courage of his own convictions.  If he was going to be evil, he’d be evil, all the way.  From now on no half measures.”  (Gabriel p. 470)

“You were right,” he said faintly.  “Change is good—or at least necessary.”  (Timon p. 481)

“Some things are so evil they must be fought. . . .”  (Timon p. 481)


The Passion

 Book_DarkVisions_ThePassion“You know what I think?  I think Kait was wrong—it’s not the web you can’t stand.  It’s not the intimacy.  It’s the freedom.  That’s what you can’t take.  You’d rather be a slave to the crystal than deal with freedom.”  (Rob to Gabriel p. 508)

“He seemed to drain the will out of everyone around him.  Not suddenly, the way Gabriel drained life energy, but slowly.  People around him began to feel nervous and exhausted—and dazed.  Like birds looking into the eyes of a snake.  A quite form of terrorization.”  (about Mr. Zetes p. 531)

And it was good just to hold her and touch the softness of her skin. He wanted to hold her hard, not to hurt her but to keep her safe, to show her that he was strong enough to protect her. Her beauty was like fire and strange music, and he loved her. (Gabriel about Kaitlyn p. 578-579)

“Do you know what I signed for my name?”  Renny asked banging the elevator door.  “I signed Jimi Hendrix.  And I put the company, Dewey, Cheatum, and Howe.  Get it?  Dewey, Cheatum, and Howe for a law firm!”
“And I put Ima Pseudonym,” Frost said tittering.  (p. 603)"

"Think about something else," Kaitlyn said. "Did you ever find a cow alarm clock around here?"
"No. A what?"
"An alarm clock shaped like a cow. It was Lewis's. It used to go off every morning, this sound like a cowbell and then a voice shouting 'Wake up! Don't sleep your life away!' And then it would moo."
Lydia giggled faintly. "I wish I'd seen that. It sounds—like Lewis."
"Actually, it sounded like a cow." Kaitlyn could hear Lydia snorting softly in the darkness for a while, then silence. She pulled the covers over her head and went to sleep. (p. 655)

“I am not an object, something to be picked up or carried away or passed around.  Gabriel thought that’s what I was.  He was wrong.  You’re both wrong,” she said to Rob.  (p. 660)

“I am the only one who can decide what will happen to me,” Kaitlyn went on very quickly.  “No one else. Me. And I’ve already made my decision.”  (p. 661)

"She wanted to tell him that she understood him now, in a way she'd never understood anyone before. Because she was with him. It wasn't even like being in the web; it was much closer than that, much deeper. He'd torn down all the barriers and put his soul into her hands."
“I love you,” she told him.
“I love you, Kaitlyn.  From the very beginning.”  (Kaitlyn and Gabriel p. 692)

“That kind of girl that might be too interesting, might tempt you to get involved. . . A girl who challenged him, who could be my equal. . . Her mind was a place pools ad blazing meteors. . . She stood slim and proud as some medieval witch princess against dawn.”  (Gabriel about Kaitlyn p. 693)

"You love her, don't you?” he said to Gabriel.
Gabriel finally seemed able to break their locked stare. He looked away, at the carpet. His face was bleak.
"Yes” he said
"More than anything,” Rob persisted. “You'd crawl on your belly over broken glass for her. Easy.”
"Yes, damn you,” Gabriel said. “Happy now?" (p. 723)

“I just had a precognition, she told Anna silently, a stream of unspoken love and joy.  You will be very happy.  Your best friend says to go for it.”
Anna’s face was bright, as if someone had set a candle behind it.  “You’re giving me permission?”
“I’m giving you an order!”  (Kaitlyn p. 725)

Rob nodded.  “You help us and we help you.  A fair exchange.”
And the great task Rob was looking for, Kaitlyn thought, somewhat giddy with the suddenness of it.  Not saving the world, maybe, but fixing a little part of it.  (p. 729)

I love the quote from page 723. It is filled with so much pain and sadness. But you know what Rob is telling Gabriel.

My favorite line is the one that goes "no on had noticed the tall boy standing in the street kissing a girl, or the crumpled figure at their feet" because it so romantic and sweet but also funny.

This was the first book I ever read by L.J. Smith. I found it in my middle school/high school library when I was about 13 or 14. I had no idea what to expect when I took it home to read. As it turns out I stayed up ALL night (or at least it felt like it to me at the time) going from page to page with the life of Kait and man oh man did I ever relate to her! She was me, if I had something interesting ever happen to me. I couldn't put it down! Thankfully my small school library had the whole trilogy and I went back the next day to grab the other two books. I fell head over heals in love with Rob and then Gabriel. I wished and wished that someday I could leave my small town and meet interesting people (and wonderfully heartbreaking boys.)

Still have a crush on Gabe.

As the years passed for some reason this book always stayed with me. I recently found the omnibus on Amazon and just had to have it! It was such a vital part of me learning to read and dream that I felt it needed to have a home in my own library. Sadly, that's where t sat high on a shelf for a long time. Until recently that is. Its not that I had grown out of it, or moved on to more "mature". I was just horribly terrified that I wouldn't FEEL the same way about it now that I did back then and I didn't ever want that feeling to be taken away from me. Thankfully, that is not even close to the case.

I would like to ask you if you wrote the final episode of Dark visions blindsight. :) It's the best book I ever read, and I can not stop thinking about her. Please ponder over you? Thank you so much.
