The Darkling: You would give up your gift? Alina: Gift? You dragged me away from my only friends, and now, according to you, I'm gonna be a target for the rest of my life. You wanna know why you've never found someone with this power? Maybe it's because they don't want to be found. The Darkling: I'm going to ask you again. Were you tested as a child? Alina: We hid. We were different enough already. Didn't want to be even more alone. The Darkling: You are Grisha. You are not alone.
