"There are things in the world that shouldn’t be known."
- Wesley Disward/Dalian

"Such power does not belong to a human."
- Dalian, referring to Leslie's cooking skills

"The most reliable proof is the girl accompanying you: the Black Biblioprincess. I think you inherited it from the Viscount. The Dantalian's Bookshelf."
- Graham Atkinson

"It's time to return the book borrowed from the library... Mr. Atkinson."
- Hugh Anthony Disward

"Phantom Books are sealed books that shouldn't exist in this world."
- Hugh Anthony Disward

"How a Phantom Book, not returned in time, affects the world... even we do not know."
- Hugh Anthony Disward

"I've changed a lot in thirteen years, but you are still the same as the day I met you... Black Biblioprincess."
- Leslie

"The Phantom Book itself chooses the owner."
- Dalian

"If a Phantom Book falls into the hands of an unworthy person, he will instantly fall under the influence of its magical power."
- Dalian

"I have to serve my master... the best food I've ever made in thirteen years!"
- Leslie

"Dalian, can you lend me a book?"
- Hugh Anthony Disward

"I ask of thee. Art thou mankind?"
- Hugh Anthony Disward

"No. I am heaven... heaven in the pot."
- Dalian, when Hugh opens the Dantalian's Bookshelf

"Hezār Afsān, a collection of stories compiled in Ancient Persia... the prototype of the book One Thousand and One Nights that lulls the listener to sleep."
- Hugh Anthony Disward

"You are the owners of the Dantalian's Bookshelf. The princess and her key-keeper protecting the Phantom Library containing 900,666 Phantom Books."
- Leslie

"My greatest desire is to create the best dish."
- Leslie

"Gourmet food is a pleasure that is available only to humans. Having tasted real exquisite food, a person experiences the highest pleasure. The brain, overwhelmed with pleasure, becomes the most delicious ingredient in the world."
- Leslie

"She closed the vessel with the remains of the precious ingredient. A vessel that was the skull of a man named Graham Atkinson."
- Gastronomy Worship

"Gourmet food is the highest pleasure given to man by God."
- Graham Atkinson

"The best food should be eaten by the best person."
- Graham Atkinson

"A Phantom Book in which the chef of Valhalla, the pagan demon Andhrímnir, outlined the forbidden art of cooking. It is called Book of Meditation of Supreme Cooking. A book lost in the distant past, which should not exist in our world."
- Graham Atkinson

"I only wish for the best dish. Because it's the highest pleasure. This is the highest desire, rooted in the very essence of mankind. And it's precisely this that is the driving force of progress."
- Graham Atkinson

"All my life I have been hunting for the taste of the highest cooking... before I die, I want to enjoy the best dish. Even if I have to rely on the power of a Phantom Book, which should not exist in this world."
- Graham Atkinson

"Dalian is beautiful, like a doll, and her clothes only emphasize her mystery."
- Pedigree

"Charcoal black jacket with a lace and a loose skirt with several rows of ruffles. On the wrists and waist there are plates of rough metal. It looks like the ceremonial attire of medieval knights. A strange vestment that cannot be called armor or dress. On the chest, instead of ribbons, an old piece of iron. A large lock on metal chains."
- Dalian's clothes as described in Pedigree

"I came to hand over a book. An ancient Phantom Book entrusted to me by your ancestors."
- Dalian

"Human abilities are not the same. The great have a job that matches their skill, and the useless should not be allowed to slow them down."
- Roy Hurston

"No matter how hard a mediocre man tries, he will never surpass a truly capable person."
- Roy Hurston

"According to an ancient contract, I came to lend you a book. A Phantom Book, sealed by your distant ancestor… The Pedigree of All Creations."
- Dalian

"The new head of the Hurston clan is allowed to read only once in his life… an ancient book. The symbol of leadership… of our kind."
- Boyd Hurston

"It’s a Phantom Book which contains all the ways in which ancestral lines are best crossed in order to obtain exceptional offspring…"
- Roy Hurston

"Prior knowledge of successful combinations is the key to immense wealth. The dream of someone who has dedicated his life to animal breeding. And the horror at the same time. After all, those who can breed exceptional individuals from birth, at the same time, destroy others."
- Pedigree

"Huey, do you know what a blue rose means in the language of flowers? Unrealizable desire… or a miracle."
- Dalian

"The Phantom Book bestows forbidden wisdom on the reader, but also, if it held for a long time, it causes various distortions of reality. This is especially true when the book falls into the hands of an outsider, not the owner."
- Pedigree

"The chamberlain… asked me for an audience. He asked if I could… how I breed dogs, crossing exceptional individuals… also create excellent soldiers… with outstanding abilities… a new race that will return alive even from a terrible battlefield…"
- Boyd Hurston

"You're… an ordinary person, just a little smarter. You're not a new race… Roy… you're just a mistake."
- Boyd Hurston

"Success or failure… It's not up to you to decide. And all the more you have no right to throw out failures like rubbish..."
- Chez Hurston

"All people are gifted with different abilities. However, there are no individuals who are superior in every way."
- Chez Hurston

"The sin of having branded me a mistake. Redeem yourself with your death, old man!"
- Roy Hurston

"The girl slapped her hand against his cheeks, and his long black hair swayed in time with the movements. Her words were harsh, but there was despair in her voice, and it seemed that she was about to cry."
- Dalian trying to resuscitate an unconscious Hugh

"A beast stood in the dark. Golden eyes like a nocturnal predator. Rows of sharp canines in the mouth tapering towards the end. The body, covered with stubble like armor, bulged with muscles. He was twice the size of Disward. Like a wolf the size of a bull."
- Description of the Beast of Ashwell

"I am an improved breed, bred by his hands… An artificial reassembly of genes and an experimental crossing…"
- Beast of Ashwell

"Huey. I grant you the right to open the gate"
- Dalian

"She reached with her fingers to the collar of her black clothes and bared her breasts. A thin collarbone, smooth white skin appeared. The lock was hidden there. Rough old lock. It was attached with metal chains to a black leather collar and was located in the center of the girl's flat chest."
- Dalian granting Hugh access to the Dantalian's Bookshelf

"Huey silently raised his right hand. In it he held the key. A golden key inlaid with a red stone. Ancient letters carved into the metal. Disward read them slowly. Like a knight taking an oath of allegiance to a noble lady, or a magician casting a spell."
- Hugh opening the Dantalian's Bookshelf

"Phantom Books that open a door to a parallel world are not very rare."
- Hugh Anthony Disward

"This was a Phantom Book that shouldn't exist. A grimoire left by a magician who celebrates the Outer Gods living in spatial faults."
- Description of the Book of the Outer God

"Not for the sake of the Hurston family, but for the sake of preserving the honor of his deceased brother. Chez was going to put the blame on himself."
- Pedigree

"The Phantom Book has chosen you as its owner! If you gain the knowledge contained in it, you can regain the body of an ordinary person…"
- Dalian

"It was said about the Viscount that he was interested in books like a cursed person. For example, he once sold half of his land in order to get an ordinary volume."
- Book of Wisdom

"She looked about the same age as Huey. Not older than twenty. Despite her short stature, she overtook Dalian by a head. Of course, she has a very sweet face, but even more impressive was her smile. Innocent like a child."
- Kamilla’s description

"Did you find it? The Dantalian's Bookshelf. A personal library, named after the demon who commands knowledge, who is portrayed with books in his hands."
- Kamilla Sauer Keynes

"The Book of Wisdom bestows ideal wisdom on the reader. If he wishes, he will rule over people or destroy the world."
- Dalian

"These children are creatures higher than humans. Monstrous computational abilities, perfect understanding, possession of knowledge in all areas… From their point of view, we are lower creatures like apes."
- Mildred Dewar

"Whatever they do, we can't stop them. If the children become interested, they will be able to rule the current humanity or destroy it."
- Mildred Dewar

"Controlling a Phantom Book depository called Dantalian's Bookshelf, the Biblioprincess and her companion. Among those who know secret knowledge like magic, a few know about their existence."
- Book of Wisdom

"It seems to me that among those who left a name in history there are more persistent people who do not deviate from their goals than geniuses."
- Hugh Anthony Disward

"Beauty. The eyes are light green like emeralds. The skin is clean, white as marble. A crimson costume has several layers of frills and laces, and golden gauntlets and breastplate can be seen through the gaps. The right eye is as green as the hair. And the left one is hidden by a shiny metal band of dark gray color. In its center there is a large keyhole, as if in an old lock."
- Rasiel’s description

"If you say that the current rulers are worthless, why not rule yourself? You think about the future of the country more than others, right? So you have to rule it."
- Rasiel

"No, don't worry. Do not worry. After all, you were chosen by a Phantom Book."
- Rasiel

"This is a book for dictators. As long as the tyrant follows what is written in it, no one can harm him."
- Rasiel

"This criminal is the last revolutionary. There are no more people left in the country who will go against me. Therefore… I'm not a dictator anymore. I have become the true king of this country." And in the next instant, one of the soldiers guarding the square suddenly fired a gun at him.
- The Dictator’s Book

"A labyrinth stretched out in front of him. A maze of countless bookcases filled with books. Stretching as far as the eye could see, hexagonal corridors. Their walls were hidden by the spines of thousands, tens of thousands of books. There were no windows or doors. And, leaning over the stone spiral staircase, he saw only endless passages between the shelves. The corridor described a smooth spiral. Books towered from floor to ceiling in many rows. Just like Babylon lost in biblical times. The cemetery of wisdom, where darkness and horror soared. The universe itself."
- Description of the Dantalian's Bookshelf

"The first man who got lost here called this world Labyrinth Library."
- The Girl in the Bookshelf

"Hidden behind tens of thousands of books, a small silhouette, without making a sound, bent its back. The young girl was sitting in a chair and holding an open manuscript on her knees. She was reading a book in the dark basement of an abandoned mansion. Struck by the unexpected sight, the young man held his breath. The girl was so beautiful that she seemed lifeless."
- Turn-Up Book

"The girl imperceptibly raised her head and looked straight at him without a shadow of embarrassment. The expressionless eyes, like transparent black quartz, reflected his own surprised face. However, the man was unable to believe that she was alive, and froze in amazement."
- Turn-Up Book

"Who are you? What do you want here, human?"
- Dalian

"It turns out that in front of him was not a doll, but a living person. Therefore, the man remembered how to behave with a lady. Even if she is younger… or let her be the devil in the flesh."
- Turn-Up Book

"Take over the library."
- Wesley Disward, in the will to his grandson

"I leave Dalian to you."
- Wesley Disward, in the will to his grandson

"Today is the full moon. If Conrad stole that book, he will soon see what he shouldn't."
- Dalian

"If a Phantom Book is owned by someone who can read it correctly, it will grant him an immeasurable blessing. But if it falls into the hands of the unworthy, the book will cross the edge of the world and violate logic and laws of cause and effect."
- Dalian

"The magic of a Phantom Book, like many other forms of magic, depends on the phase of the moon."
- Dalian

"I don’t care about any noblesse oblige, but since the book bought by my grandfather at the auction is to blame, then this is my problem."
- Hugh Anthony Disward

"Get the key… human."
- Dalian

"I do not wish that, but there is no other way out. So, if you deserve to be the keeper of the key, carefully read the text of the contract."
- Dalian

"The young man involuntarily clutched the key on his chest. A golden key with a stone red like the blood of a young maiden."
- Turn-Up Book

"A dim light poured from under the black dress on Dalian's chest. Her very body shone. The collar, hidden by several layers of black frills, appeared, and the white skin was exposed. Thin throat, slender collarbones, like the wings of a small bird. Flat, boyish chest. In its center, above the solar plexus, where the heart should be located, the edges of the metal stood out as a foreign stain."
- Turn-Up Book

"The young man reached for the keyhole, as if obeying someone's call. He plunged the tip of the golden key into the girl's chest and pressed slowly."
- Turn-Up Book

"The lock opened with a click. It split into two halves and swung open like a door. There was emptiness behind it. Emptiness in a whirlwind of pale shimmer. A bottomless hole. A large luminous hole formed in the center of the girl's white smooth chest. So deep that it seemed to pierce right through her slender body."
- Turn-Up Book

"Among the grimoires of the Middle Ages, there are many that tell about the art of conquering spirits, the first of which is considered the Book of Fairy, supposedly written by the alchemist Paracelsus. Almost all have already been burned, and most of the rest are fakes."
- Turn-Up Book

"When the girl opened the volume, a roaring storm seized her. She summoned the sylphs."
- Turn-Up Book

"The book and the person who needs its strength are attracted to each other. In the hands of its rightful reader, the Phantom Book will fulfill what it is intended for."
- Dalian

"Dalian closed the picture book, and the ominous aura hanging on the estate vanished as if it had never existed."
- Turn-Up Book

"The golden key he was clutching disappeared unnoticed. Instead, a red gem appeared on the back of his right hand. The young man seemed to have turned into a key to the gate."
- Turn-Up Book

"You are the heaven in the pot… Dalian?"
- Hugh Anthony Disward

"...I promised her that I would become her friend and someday bring her outside."
- Hugh Anthony Disward

"Dalian, is your name derived from Dantalian?"
- Hugh Anthony Disward

"The books of those who have lived long and seen a lot are thick. And those who died young or lived for a long time, but monotonously, are thin."
- Immortal Old Man

"The facial features were surprisingly beautiful, but the sullenly pursed lips discouraged the desire to approach. His ashen hair was tied tightly behind his back, and there was a deep wrinkle between his eyebrows, like a suffering philosopher."
- Hal’s description

"The silver-haired woman wore white clothes that completely hid her body. Leather straps held the thick fabric tightly, restraining movement. Only the head and hands were free to move. Like a straitjacket for transporting dangerous criminals. Despite the frill and lace embellishment, it is designed to hold the girl back. Old locks also glittered dully all over the shirt. Many locks held the belts together and did not allow the young lady to escape. Such treatment cannot be called anything other than indescribably inhuman."
- Description of Flamberge’s attire

"A beautiful gem was set on the back of his hand. Crimson like frozen blood. The Book Burning Officer clenched his fist tightly, unclenched it, and the next moment was already holding a bunch of golden keys. Old, strange words engraved on the rods."
- Hal opening the Long Lost Library

"Broken Biblioprincess, Flamberge! I ask of thee. Art thou mankind?"
- Hal Kamhout opening the Long Lost Library

"The man raised the golden keys above his head. The keys sounded like a musical instrument while he opened the locks holding the straitjacket. Freed from her shackles, the silver-haired girl threw off her robe. There was nothing under it, only a dazzling white naked body. From the left side to the right thigh, there was a silver line that looked like a wound. A metal zipper. A silver clasp is sewn into the girl's white porcelain skin."
- Hal opening the Long Lost Library

"No. I am heaven… the fallen heaven"
- Flamberge

"Branch of Calamity, burn everything!"
- Hal Kamhout

"Staff of Calamity of Fire Giant Surt, who incinerated the world in the twilight of the gods… If you continue to use it, you will disappear in your own flame, like the giant clan in the myth."
- Mabel Nash

"My job is to destroy the Phantom Books and everything connected with them."
- Hal Kamhout

"A valuable atlas that, at the behest of the owner, creates an illusory landscape and confuses the people who step in it. A legendary Phantom Book bestowed upon humanity by an Eastern goddess in time immemorial."
- Dalian

"The Phantom Book creates mirages in the world itself at the request of the owner. This is the true face of the Deep Green Book."
- The Briar Princess

"Buddha Tathātā: a lost apocryphal of early Buddhism from Western Asia, which reflects all evil and erases mirages."
- Dalian

"Huey looked at her silently. Her body kept an endless library, in which to this day the soul of a young maiden is waiting for the release, the girl who is like two drops of water similar to Dalian."
- The Briar Princess

"It was an old stone mansion. The residence of the ruined owner of this land. The territory of the estate is large, but the house itself cannot be called particularly majestic. Just an old building and nothing else. The servants were absent. The house was dull and it seemed even more empty. Inside there were only the most necessary items and furniture. No decorations like paintings or sculptures. Instead, books. Old and new, expensive and cheap. From valuable scientific papers to one-time readings for the general public. Books of all times and peoples were mixed in bookcases, and those that did not fit lay on the floor. Such was the mansion of the late Viscount Wesley Disward, an eccentric, renowned as an exceptional bibliomaniac."
- Description of the Disward estate

"There is no Phantom Book called The Queen of the Night. And with non-existent books, I can't help you."
- Dalian

"The history of humanity can be called the history of inequality. Ever since humans began to cultivate the land, the unequal sharing of the harvest has created class inequalities that resulted in differences between social status and groups."
- Mr. Fieron

"The law of one price is nothing more than a delusion of economists. Because in reality there is only class inequality. If there is a rich man who scatters millions of pounds like a small change, there will also be a poor man dying trying to get just a shilling. To a person dying of thirst in the desert, a cup of water is more valuable than gold of the same weight."
- Mr. Fieron

"A simple skirt, a thick leather belt that you can shove a revolver through. A snow-white blouse, a red tie and a lace-up corset over it. A man’s black felt hat. Shiny blonde, slightly curly hair was cut to the shoulders. She looked like a conqueror of the New World."
- Kamilla’s description

"It was located on one of the unobtrusive streets of the city. If there was a sign on it, then it was hidden by the soot that generously covered the bricks of the building, so it was not easy for an ignorant person to find the second-hand bookseller. However, when they climbed the creaking wooden stairs, they found themselves in an unexpectedly spacious room. Books filled the tall cabinets to the top, and those that did not fit were piled up on the floor. The sun shone orange through the skylight. It smelled of dust, ink and paper."
- Description of the used bookstore

"A salesman stood at the back of the silent store. A gray-haired old man with round glasses. Deep wrinkles lined his face. Clear, piercing eyes were filled with light. They seemed to see everything and everyone."
- Description of the old man

"It was a used military vehicle: open, with a darkened silver body and two seats. The standard model that, after the end of the war, the army sold massively to civilians for almost nothing."
- Description of Hugh’s car

"The Book of Equivalence is a guide for acquiring the wealth you desire."
- Dalian

"A person who has been read the lines from the Phantom Book must exchange the owner's thing for his own, which has the same value. This is the law of the Book of Equivalence."
- Dalian

"The owner of the Phantom Book is able to get hold of any property through successive exchanges of his possessions."
- Dalian

"The value of a thing is determined by the human value system. There are as many systems as there are people in the world. For example, no matter how significant a book is, for someone who is unable to comprehend its content, it will be equivalent to a pile of waste paper."
- Dalian

"The Book of Equivalence is a Phantom Book that allows equal deals. It is not in the least dangerous as long as the owner does not desire prohibitively expensive items. However, if he gets caught in the net of his own greed and tries to take something dear to another by force, the book will demand compensation from him."
- Book of Equivalence

"Dalian, behind her, was happily hugging the teddy bear. Glancing at her, Kamilla closed her eyes in satisfaction. She seemed to want to forever preserve in her memory the innocent image of the laughing Dalian, which she had achieved with such difficulty."
- Book of Equivalence

"In the endless maze of bookcases, no one heard her words. There was only the majestic and merciless click of the closed lock. Then the girl went back to reading. Reading a story about a girl in a black robe and with long dark flowing hair…"
- Book of Fetus

"Only knowledge is recorded in the Phantom Books. Without a person who reads and understands them, no magical power will materialize."
- Dalian

"The anthropomorphic figure is approximately twice the height of an adult male. The shoulders are unnaturally wide and the waist is too narrow. The imbalance is too strong to call the being human."
- Description of the Golem

"Book of Styx, the goddess of the underworld, written by the immortal sage Charon… Not even a thousand spears can pierce this barrier."
- Dalian

"Everyone wants to think that they have special information. Especially those who, unlike the ordinary people, declare themselves knowledgeable in matters related to the underworld society."
- Professor

"The wings of desperation have come down, stars are filling the sky. There is no angel in the blue sky, but a knight cuddled with a warmaiden. I, like a meteor, will lead you through the procession of the dead."
- Ilas Alcock

"There is no point in flying without battling enemies. I want to hear even more voices… As many pure death cries as possible. I feel that this is why I am here…"
- Ilas Alcock

"Lost technologies of the gods. Prehistoric wisdom. Magical knowledge. These are general terms for books of forbidden knowledge that should not exist. There is something in the world that people should not know."
- Rasiel

"For the birth of a Phantom Book, a condition must be met. Madness. Or fear. Strong, searing emotion. Thoughts so vivid that they cross the boundaries of the world. Your poems still lack them. The collection will gain the right to be called a Phantom Book when you turn into a legend, and your name becomes a synonym for fear."
- Rasiel

"If the miracles of the gods are the result of human faith, then the forbidden knowledge hidden in the Phantom Book is embodied probably with the help of the madness of people."
- The Mystic Archives of Rasiel

"War is beautiful. Beautiful. Constant balancing on the brink of life and death, a huge raging whirlwind of madness. Frenzy crosses the line, turns into magical power and gives life to a Phantom Book."
- Rasiel

"Rasiel is the name of an angel. The leader of the angels, who has been granted the right to stand at the throne of God and record all events in the world. Therefore, he thoroughly knows all heavenly and earthly secrets and always carries a book about it in his hand. The title of that book is Sefer Rasiel."
- Rasiel

"Envious of Rasiel's glory, the angels kidnapped the Sefer Rasiel and threw it into the primeval sea. In the end, the Sefer Rasiel landed on land and passed through many hands, and portions of it were copied into various books. However, the original source ceased to exist. Forever and ever. And then the angel Rasiel himself disappeared…"
- Rasiel

"Emerald hair, marbled white skin, golden plate gauntlets and breastplate. The right eye is as green as the hair. The other is black and does not reflect light at all. The left pupil hidden by the bandage turned into an impenetrable dark hole. A deep, deep hole, reminiscent of a passage to another world…"
- Rasiel's description

"Nein. It's over. It's already over. You got shot down. The legend of the Faceless Phantom is gone. The Phantom Book will forever remain unfinished. You won't be able to cross the line."
- Rasiel

"I see… I'm already dead, right?"
- Ilas Alcock

"Sorry. You could not complete the Phantom Book, and therefore there is no reason to keep you in this world any longer."
- Professor

"I'm sorry we awakened you against your will, Captain. Now sleep well."
- Professor

"Alcock felt freedom. His body slowly fell, disintegrating, the ashes taken by the air currents and flying into the sky. The carefully guarded collection of poems immediately turned into dust. The Phantom Book Egg has died."
- The Mystic Archives of Rasiel

"Please, save us. We are captivated by a strange book. I think that only you, Viscount Wesley Disward, will understand my current position. Only you, who told me in the past about the existence of Phantom Books."
- Lenny Lents

"The Phantom Book Ras Alhague, which records the ritual of resurrection of the dead… A forbidden book, which should not exist in this world. Considered the work of Asclepius, the famous mythical healer…"
- Dalian

"According to the agreement with Hades, the resurrection by the power of Ras Alhague requires a payment: someone's life…"
- Dalian

"I will kill them and resurrect them over and over, over and over, over and over. Rend arms and legs, break skulls, rip out entrails and feed pigs with them, peel the skin from the body and tirelessly scrape flesh from bones, burn with brands, disfigure beyond recognition."
- Paula Dickinson referring to Lenny Lents and Leticia Serkis

"Raising the dead is a curse. Resurrection with the help of the Ras Alhague is not ideal… The flesh of the reborn corpse cannot withstand even a day, rotting and dying again…"
- Dalian

"They use the same life in turn. When one is resurrected, the other dies. They will never be able to meet each other again during their lifetime…"
- Paula Dickinson referring to Lenny Lents and Leticia Serkis

"The woman wanted to shout something, but the blow overtook her earlier. Broken ribs, apparently, punctured a lung. Paula coughed up blood and died."
- Book of Soul Exchange

"The monster, which had lost the power of the Phantom Book, which in the past was called Lents, crumbled on the floor. Experiencing an endless cycle of death and resurrection, the poor author and his lover finally rushed into the arms of peaceful death…"
- Book of Soul Exchange

"Give them eternal rest, Lord, and let the eternal light shine on them…"
- Hugh praying for Lenny Lents and Leticia Serkis

"Do you really want to know the end of that book?"
- Dalian

"Memory is closely related to a person's personality. Erasing a part of it is equivalent to a change in character."
- Dalian

"The ability to steal eyewitness’ memories makes any crime undetectable. This Phantom Book, depending on the way it is used, can be a terrible tool for hiding dark deeds."
- Book Oblivion

"The reader, immersed in the magical power of a Phantom Book and crossing the line, will surely meet his end."
- Dalian

"This book is written on a paper made from the reeds that grow along the river of oblivion in the world of the dead. A Phantom Book that collects feelings and memories valuable for the reader and stores them for him."
- Dalian

"Lethe is a big river from the world of the dead. It is believed that the deceased, having reached it and drunk its water, lose their memory and are freed from the curses of their past lives. A Phantom Book woven from the reeds from this river has the ability to collect other people's memories."
- Book Oblivion

"Over time, any sadness and anger should be forgotten. But you tried to erase them by force with the help of a Phantom Book, and now you have revived a living memory of those days…"
- Dalian

"It is a medium that copies important memories, preventing them from being overwritten. This is the true role of the Papyrus of Oblivion, isn't it? A Phantom Book for preserving memories, not for stealing and hiding."
- Hugh Anthony Disward

"A tall young man in a leather coat. His posture and the grace with which he carried himself spoke of a good upbringing, but at the same time were natural. On the other hand, he seemed to be calm and relaxed, but at any moment ready for action, like a trained soldier."
- Hugh’s description

"They were huge insects twice the height of a man. A sinister beast with a dull white carapace, three pairs of jointed legs, and a long mustache. Ugly, sickening creatures raised without the sun."
- Baziumu’s description

"At the foot of the mountain, a huge insect with thin long antennae, three pairs of claws and a translucent shell arose, devouring the forest. The monster devourer of worlds. Baziumu."
- Book of Twilight

"Duban, a Phantom Book from the Middle East, containing the technique of summoning a thousand and one genies… It allows the materialization of the genie Kabikaj, which protects books from being eaten by insects."
- Hugh Anthony Disward

"The old tome, pretty much gnawed by insects, is a fantastic story about a fictional world, the main character of which was a young healer."
- Description of the Book of Twilight

"This book brings a dream to the reader. When a person reads it, he will fall asleep for a whole century. Even a few pages are enough for a sleep of several years."
- Rasiel

"A short young man in rich clothes walked to the front door along a stone path. In figure and height, he could have been eighteen or nineteen years old, but his childish face made him very young."
- Armand Jeremiah’s description

"… the late Viscount Wesley Disward, was considered the most ardent bibliomaniac in our country. They say that a great many rare books are collected in his estate."
- Armand Jeremiah

"Educated, graceful, not a bit proud, kind to everyone and amazingly beautiful. I think there is no other woman like her in the whole world. If she were here, the whole room would be flooded with light… With all due respect, Miss Dalian, she will even leave you far behind."
- Armand Jeremiah

"… The girl in black possessed an incomparable, inhuman beauty, no matter how you look…"
- The Magician’s Daughter

"Oh, how magnificent her fleeting smile is… I would sell my soul to the devil, if only to make this smile my own."
- Armand Jeremiah

"She is looking for . She promised that she would marry someone who would bring her every book she needed."
- Armand Jeremiah

"There were various rumors about the bibliomaniac Disward. In the basement of his estate, a library of several tens of thousands of books was supposed to rest. Finding a specific one among them is like looking for a needle in a haystack."
- The Magician’s Daughter

"Her blonde hair seemed to reflect the moonlight, her body was lithe and her pearly white skin smooth. The perfectly symmetrical face seemed to be carved on a precision machine. Anyone who even saw Viola with an eye would recognize the rightness of the nickname Mercury Craftsmanship. A beauty worthy of a painter's brush."
- Viola Duplessis’ description

"Flapping wings in the air hovered like a bird of prey. A short, beautiful woman. She wore an exquisite dress with an open back, from which grew silvery shiny wings. Webbed like a bat. Their leading edges looked razor sharp."
- Description of the winged women

"I'll be back. On the night of the next full moon."
- Dalian

"Men are creatures who indulge women's whims for a thousand years, but stubbornly do not want to grow wiser."
- Dalian

"Fools who lose their heads from love and buy up books for any price become easy victims of scammers."
- Dalian

"It seemed that the half-dark room was illuminated by a bright light. The graceful beauty of the Mercury Craftsmanship has remained unchanged to this day."
- The Magician’s Daughter

"Have you really forgotten about my power? Leave your senseless resistance and humbly return, Viola… my daughter."
- Melgar

"He is the one who knows forbidden knowledge. The one who creates magic himself, without resorting to Phantom Books… A real magician."
- Dalian

"My name is Melgar. The one to whom the king of another country gave the title of Earl long ago. A disciple who inherited memories of the distant past and threw off the shackles of death. I am honored to meet you, Black Biblioprincess."
- Melgar

"This is the true guise of the courtesan, who became famous as Mercury Craftsmanship and Moon Goddess of the Kingdom. A false beauty for a false high society. An automaton."
- Melgar

"The Phantom Books have chosen you."
- Dalian

"The heaven in the pot. That was the name of another huge world, created by one of the immortals and sealed in a vessel. If we assume that the Dantalian's Bookshelf - a depository of forbidden knowledge, where an innumerable number of Phantom Books are sealed - exists, then where else is it to be, if not there."

"… a man with a Phantom Book is able to do something for which he’s not ready."
- Hal Kamhout

"I've heard rumors about the existence of a Phantom Book called Book of Atonement. It takes the soul out of the reader and turns him into a zombie. A punishment mechanism that works based on arcane pagan magic."
- Dalian

"No. He's not my friend. This is an extremely unpleasant creature that only knows how to burn books. A fool with the brains of a small insect who flies into a fire."
- Dalian

"You won't be able to defeat the Biblioprincess in a verbal duel…"
- Flamberge

"Phantom Books with forbidden knowledge that should not exist in this world, the Biblioprincess watching over them and her key-keeper… Book Burning Officers live to burn them all…"
- Hal Kamhout

"People do not need the knowledge of Phantom Books."
- Hal Kamhout

"… humanity has been developing since ancient times precisely because there are those who read books, wanting to acquire the so-called unnecessary knowledge."
- Hugh Anthony Disward

"… let me ask you, key-keeper of the Black Biblioprincess. Have you ever seen a person who found happiness thanks to the power of a Phantom Book? How many people have you met who read Phantom Books correctly?"
- Hal Kamhout

"The power of Phantom Books comes not only in book format. If the order of the letters preserves the mechanism of the Phantom Book, the magic won't go anywhere."
- Flamberge

"… the Book of Atonement acts directly on the reader, sucking the soul out of him and turning him into a living dead."
- Book of Atonement

"The Great Queen Poem containing the secret spell of the goddess Morrigan, who of her own free will changes the outcome of the war."
- Hugh Anthony Disward

"She was as beautiful as a finely crafted porcelain doll. Eyes with which the night itself could gaze. Flowing dark hair."
- Dalian’s description

"Book of the Silver Well, left by the ancient healer Dian Cecht… It is believed that it contains a spell that creates a healing stream that can heal any wounds."
- Dalian

"Thanks to the Phantom Book, the flowing blood turned into holy water, endowed with the power of healing and regeneration. It restored the damaged organs and healed the terrible wound."
- Book of Gap

"Such is the power of Diffring's Phantom Book. The Book of Gap flattens everyone who touches it. Like a dried flower between the pages."
- Dalian

"A whirlwind of fantastic sounds exceeded the limits of the violin's capabilities and made listeners forget about everything around. It penetrated into the farthest corners of the soul and merged with the beating of the heart. It seemed that the very world around Christabel was transformed and shone with new, beautiful colors."
- Phantom Score

"Those who have heard Baldini's Phantom Score at least once will never be able to forget the impression they received. They want to listen to it again. The more they listen, the more addicted they become, and in the end they are ready to follow any order in order to enjoy it again."
- Kendrick

"… not only residents of the capital will obey us. Soon everyone in this country, even the monarch, will hear Baldini's Phantom Score and submit to us. This is already a revolution, Sir Disward."
- Kendrick

"It cannot be repaired… Once broken, a life cannot be recovered."
- Dalian

"The mechanical girl was created to perform Phantom Scores. She probably put her own feelings into the last melody. Emotions born of Dallaglio's death in a heart that could neither be sad nor cry. She became the very embodiment of fear and sadness."
- Phantom Score

"The book had faded with age and was rather frayed, but the high quality of the material on the pages indicated that it was initially quite valuable. However, the book lacked something, and the girl knew it. Sun and moon. Light and darkness. God and the devil. Man and woman… The concept of opposites maintained harmony in the world. So this volume also had a pair. Somewhere around the world walked the one with whom fate had prepared for her…"
- Book of Relationship

"All the blood will boil and evaporate. The flesh will flare up, flake off the bones and rot. Disfigured entrails will fall to the ground. Blood, flesh, bones, organs will burn, exuding a stench. He will die writhing in terrible agony. Such a fate will befall the one breaking the oath. This is what the one who betrays me and the Phantom Book deserves."
- Lianna Scholes

"A love relationship can be described as two trees standing side by side, whose branches are intertwined, and the trunks have grown together. The Book of Relationship is a Phantom Book that consists of two parts: male and female. It is believed to connect the owners."

"The owners of the Book of Relationship are bound by fate."
- Lianna Scholes

"The Book of the Eleusis Ritual containing a secret art that allows you to recover people from the realm of the dead… They say that it can only revive those who have not tasted the fruits of the afterlife…"

"Huey laughed cheerfully. The girl looked at him and suddenly smiled. However, there was such loneliness in the smile that it seemed that she was about to cry."
- Book of Relationship

"Phantom Books with forbidden knowledge that should not exist in this world. Let me tell you a secret: one of them contains a powerful hypnosis technique."
- Hypnotized Man

"The Famenias perfumes are used as decoration… I don't really like that. Since I'm on my own, I want to create a scent that makes everyone happy."
- Fiona Famenias

"The scripture of the Gandharva, one of the Hindu gods, the god of smells. It contains the secret knowledge of a deity who feeds on aromas and is even able to control his own scent."
- Dalian

"Smells and memory go hand in hand. The residents of the capital may forget Fiona, but the next moment of happiness will surely remind them of this fragrance."
- Dalian

"Their madness will turn eggs into complete Phantom Books. They will spread misery throughout the world. They will spread fear throughout the world. How I look forward to this! I wonder how many people will the readers of the drafts kill this time?"
- Rasiel

"I burn all the Phantom Books. That's what Book Burning Officers are for."
- Hal Kamhout

"She deeply breathed in the scent of death as if it was the sweet scent of flowers, bathed in the rage of the dead people as if it was the blinding sunlight, and got drunk. For a moment it seemed that the hatred poured around her revived her beautiful face."
- Phantom Book Thief

"Yes. I hear in my head… Voices of memories."
- Flamberge

"I knew about Hildegard's atrocities. I closed her here along with the Phantom Books and blocked all the doors so she could never get out."
- Ben Arkin

"All this time I have been waiting… for the day when I will see you again, my brother…"
- Hildegard Arkin

"Hildegard chose Elisha as a vessel for rebirth, tried to take her soul and resurrect. She looked like the larva of a burrowing wasp that parasitizes another insect and drinks its life juices to become an imago."
- Phantom Book Thief

"Hildegard sighed, lost interest in him, and removed the dress from her own corpse. In her hands, the bloody fabric heaved and turned into ugly creatures: panthers, ravens, pterosaurs, black goats and other grotesque creatures of unknown breed…"
- Phantom Book Thief

"Whatever magic the branch of calamities might hold, it will remain a tool for burning Phantom Books. Knowing the nature of the attack, I can easily defend myself against it."
- Hildegard Arkin

"After I consume your flesh and blood, I will rip your doll's belly and take all the Phantom Books!"
- Hildegard Arkin

"Why… brother? You said that you love me… I believed… you…"
- Hildegard Arkin

"The Faceless Book… I am faceless, and therefore I have thousands of different forms."

- Kamilla Sauer Keynes

"… A pretty girl of about seven or eight years old. She was dressed in a dress made of expensive light green fabric and wore leather shoes on her feet. Thick golden hair was braided in two long braids."
- KK’s description

"KK looked the same, petite and fragile as Dalian, but in character was her complete opposite. If the Biblioprincess, so to speak, wore a mask of stone calm, then their new acquaintance was lively and energetic."
- Timetable

"Everything is exactly the same as twelve years ago. I never forgot this night for a second. Every day I racked my brains, tried to find a way out, but I never came up with anything."
- Heizer Hayling

"This is a Phantom Book that allows you to board any trains of the past, present and future."
- Dalian

"He smiled as if he had challenged fate itself and emerged victorious from the fight."

"The ship must always have a crew and a captain."
- Logbook

"She was fifteen or sixteen years old, but she looked older. Big eyes burned with a flame of determination rarely seen in the children of powerful aristocrats and untitled wealthy. It was evident that this girl knows how to have fun and at the same time knows how to approach business seriously, as befits a student of a prestigious school."
- Jessica Elphinstone’s description

"Only knowledge is recorded in the Phantom Books… No matter how terrible they are, without a reader, these are just words on paper."
- Dalian

"This ship is destined to go forever to its destination through the world of fog."
- Masha

"The ship must have a crew and a captain. Therefore, the Atlantic Rim is constantly looking for fresh blood. It invites seafarers from other ships and replaces those who can no longer work. Those who have boarded this sailboat will not be able to get off it until a replacement appears."
- Masha

"An ordinary ship's logbook can turn into a Phantom Book only under one condition: if it’s written by someone who has knowledge that should not exist in this world."
- Dalian

"He is both a reader and the Phantom Book itself. He controls the ship using the forbidden knowledge he heard from the first captain."
- Dalian

"This is the Phantom Book Fata Morgana, found among the ruins of a settlement in ancient Gaul. It contains the secret poem of the Druids. It creates illusions on the surface of the water and confuses sailors."

"This photo album shows the history of the planet."

- The Observer

"… today your torment will end. God our Father has given us a fragment of his wisdom so that we can understand each other."
- Emilie Gisela

"… the monks killed him. The strangest thing was how they did it: prayer, without a single touch. A miracle sent down by God…"
- Book of Connection

"Tall, slender, long-haired, with a graceful face like an actress. Young, but the exact age is difficult to establish. A white coat is thrown over narrow shoulders, which would be more suitable for a skilled artist, or a genius of science… or a military doctor returning from the battlefield, where he tore patients from the icy grip of death."
- Professor’s description

"We strive to create new Phantom Books."
- Professor

"We develop Phantom Drafts - the so-called "eggs" - and create full-fledged Phantom Books out of them."
- Professor

"By resorting to the power of Phantom Books, people seek to evoke love, get rid of fear, cast off bitterness, or fill a hole in the heart. Their desires are so strong that they distort the boundaries of the world… But for the Professor, they were nothing more than objects of observation."
- Book of Connection

"To contact Phantom Books is like facing naked facts, that is, human desires. However, before that, you still have to face yourself."
- Professor

"Lord Disward, what is the purpose of your existence? Why are you, the keeper of the Black Biblioprincess's key, acting in concert with her?"
- Professor

"That's nice… It's good when at the last hour you are… not alone…"
- Queneau

"The minds of our brothers, sisters and parishioners - all who possessed a copy - merged into one. Misunderstandings, quarrels and disagreements disappeared. Someday the Book of Connection will unite all the inhabitants of our city, no, the whole world, and people will forget about loneliness!"
- Emilie Gisela

"It is believed that with its help one ancient ruler conveyed his order to a messenger. This book, as it were, cuts an order into the soul of a person, and until it is executed, other commands simply will not be perceived. It excludes the very fact of betrayal."
- Professor

"We may not be able to understand each other, but we do not need to become one… Gathered together, like-minded people, of course, will complement each other, but they will not get rid of loneliness completely. Recognize that other people who are not like you have a right to life!"
- Hugh Anthony Disward

"No. I am heaven… the heaven of sorrow."
- Rasiel

"This is a Phantom Book that takes memories from the reader. It's called Papyrus of Oblivion. It also erases ego, personality and experiences that are closely associated with memories."
- Hugh Anthony Disward

"When Kamilla sat quietly and was silent, she looked like one of the quietest and most pretty girls of high society, but… Woe to that trusting simpleton who was fond of the beauty of this rose and did not notice its sharp thorns. Kamilla grew up in America and is used to extravagant outfits and unusual words. Noise and din were her constant companions. In short, a problem child."
- The Template Book

"I need to know what to do with an immortal killer."
- Leon Kim Keynes

"A soft smile adorned an already pretty face, and clever eyes made him look like an intellectual. Even the ingrained smell of blood and hundreds of restless souls could not detract from its beauty. And that's why the man seemed to be anything but human. For example, a doll modeled after the original."
- The Template Book

"Wesley was surprisingly young and handsome. It was easy to believe that life had not yet polluted this young soul. But he knew that someday he would lose those virtues, he would become ugly, pitiful and terrible. He knew and he was afraid of this. Running from fear, Wesley wanted to become fear himself and began to kill. He turned into the only absolute killer…"
- Zenova Hallward

"This is the Book of a Thousand Sorrows passed down by generations among the inhabitants of Ancient Arabia. An old grimoire to summon a fiery genie."
- Hugh Anthony Disward

"Do you remember, Wesley Clade? Remembered them – the fear of old age, disease and death?"
- Dalian

"This is a Phantom Draft, a Phantom Book Egg that should not exist in this world. It contains a recipe for one drug that no one knows about yet."
- Professor

"You… will never die. You will live forever in paradise… Someday you will definitely come back… Surely…"
- Throstur Orlik

"Before retiring, Orlik borrowed a book from my grandfather. The deadline has passed. It needs to be returned."
- Hugh Anthony Disward

"Freckled cheeks, pink lips, big eyes sparkling with mischief - not a beautiful heartbreaker, but a very pretty person. And she was dressed in an unusual, catchy fashion: a cap in a black-and-red checkered pattern, a checkered woolen skirt. Over her shoulder she carried a small purse… no, not a purse, but an American folding camera."
- Shura’s description

"Viscount Wesley Disward is said to have had a personal library… a phantom library containing the so-called Phantom Books containing knowledge alien to our world. No one knows where it is hidden - the Dantalian's Bookshelf."
- Shura Irmania

"Among all creatures on Earth, only people thirst for knowledge, inexhaustible knowledge. I believe people were born to pursue knowledge."
- Shura Irmania

"The steam giant was a kind of defense mechanism for the sarcophagus, cursed with the wings of death, promising disaster to all who disturb the sleep of the buried woman."
- Book of Coffin

"Good night, Mom. Thank you for giving birth to me."
- Erna

"It's called Book of the Flatterer. It contains only irresponsible sweet talk and flattery, such that every reader will succumb to it… This is an evil book. At one time it was written to corrupt one king, praising his mistakes and vices, and subsequently destroying the country."
- Dalian

"Bodies of naked beautiful long-haired maidens. But they seemed human only at first glance. Instead of legs, they had long fish tails covered with silvery scales and merging into a large shark-like fin. Long, thick tentacles grew from their backs, each of which ended in a mouth studded with sharp teeth. Real monsters."
- Sea devils’ description

"Sea devils. Above - girls of incomparable beauty. Below - octopus tentacles or a ball of snakes. They are cannibals who charm fishermen, lure, and then eat them."
- Book of Humanization

"… Viscount Wesley Disward, who became famous throughout the kingdom for his love of books, met Dalian under mysterious circumstances and adopted her."
- Book of Humanization

"… the simple dress did go well with her doll face. If it were not for the lock on the chest, rough metal shoes and bracers that looked more like shackles, she would have passed for the most ordinary girl. She was probably aware of this herself."
- Book of Humanization

"Humanity does not know much about the underwater depths. I would not be surprised if sea people that humans don’t know about live quietly somewhere in the sea."
- Lucrece Lang

"The girl glowed dimly, her contours trembled slightly, her legs grew together. They were covered with silvery scales. A translucent fish fin grew instead of feet, and long beautiful tentacles appeared on her back, bared with jaws with sharp fangs. It was no longer a human, but neither an animal nor a fish. Lecia has turned into a strange monster - the legendary Latham sea devil."
- Book of Humanization

"This is the Book of Humanization, a Phantom Book for evil spirits, which describes the process of transformation of underwater creatures into a human beings."
- Dalian

"These sea devils visit Latham from time to time, and all the old fishermen know about them. They are just awful to look at, but they’re kind inside. They are no more stupid than us and do not like meaningless conflicts. Neptune, Glaucus, Njörðr, Manannán mac Lir - probably all these and other gods were actually sea devils."
- John McGuigan

"The Book of Humanization of this little creature did not exist in a single copy. Dozens, if not hundreds of copies of it circulate around the world."
- Dalian

"In the seas and oceans around the planet, there are many creatures that people do not yet know anything about. Some come ashore and disguise themselves as we do."
- Lucrece Lang

"It is believed that this is a Phantom Book that creates a perfect paradise on earth, where all desires are fulfilled and a happy life awaits a person."
- Hal Kamhout

"I don’t want a fake paradise created by a Phantom Book."
- Hal Kamhout

"This is a Phantom Book. It contains knowledge that should not exist in this world. It will grant my wish, and no one else will fight. Peace will come… And we can always be together. We will live happily. Forever. As long as there is a Phantom Book…"
- Hal's beloved

"Everyone who gets here plunges into eternal sleep and experiences the happiest moments of their lives. They forget about the hardships of past choices, throw off the shackles of anxiety about the future and find happiness. This is the power of the Book of Paradise."
- Sea Devil Queen

"I'm sorry, but I don't remember my past… I'm a broken Biblioprincess. One winter day, when the clock tower collapsed, all my memories were burned out."
- Flamberge

"What's wrong with living the happiness of the past? Some cannot live without it. Their future is too harsh, and the truth is painful."
- Sea Devil Queen

"If you continue to own this branch, someday it will burn both your life and your memories… As it happened with the mythical clan of giants to which the branch belonged."
- Sea Devil Queen

"My past burned out long ago. I have nothing to lose."
- Hal Kamhout

"The Holy Land of the Sea Devils can be called a graveyard. The devils live in the sea, so they do not bury their relatives. When they want to remember the departed, they visit that cave, and their feelings maintain the harmony there."
- Lucrece Lang

"Fool… May the curse of the Kasuruhau minions fall on you! And your life will turn into a streak of troubles and misfortunes!"
- Dunstan Legout

"These are all models. Catalogue. If you really want to start a new life, point to any face you like and the book will fulfill your desire."
- Rasiel

"In the East, there is a special walking method called “Yubu”… As far as I know, it allows you to hide from the gaze of hostile demons and beasts and safely end the journey… Is this the power of your Phantom Book?"
- Charlotte Edgecumbe

"This is the Pioneer Book. It cannot be sealed during the day. It is necessary to perform a disenchantment ritual after sunset and only then return to the library, otherwise it will get out of control."
- Dalian

"Collection of Visions… It also has a second title: “Poems of the Distant View”. It is believed that they were written by a wandering poet on the verge of death, wishing to see his distant homeland for the last time… As the name says, this Phantom Book displays distant places, but only those that the reader knows the way to."
- Dalian

"The Book of the Ritual of the Migratory Locusts completely drains the weeds in the fields. And the Atargatis Scripture calls on a handful of drinking water."
- Dalian

"The Atargatis Scripture is a Phantom Book with a noble story. With its help, in ancient times, the eastern priestess saved the desert people. This book invokes clean water wherever the eye can reach. I will not exaggerate if I call it the embodiment of a divine miracle!"
- Dalian

"A blood-red moon disk shone in the sky. The bell on the clock tower struck midnight. The seal of the Pioneer Book lost its force, and the Phantom Book turned into a “bomb” that would go off at any, even the most insignificant impulse. In the worst case, a casual reader could open it and instantly cross the line."
- The Girls’ Long Night

"To read a Phantom Book, understand the knowledge contained in it and fully invoke its magic, only a select reader is able to. Even I, a Biblioprincess, am no exception to the rule."
- Dalian

"The key-keeper is the one whom the books love. They help him, so he is able to show strength, yielding very little to a true reader."
- Dalian

"We used the Hymn of Hel, a mythical verse from the lost Edda, and invoked the power of the ruler of the world of the dead, where eternal cold reigns."
- Dalian

"Do you know what a Phantom Draft is? Yes, that's right, that's what they call Phantom Book Egg, that is, an unfinished Phantom Book. And my book is probably one of those drafts. No, it was a draft, but it has already taken shape of a full-fledged Phantom Book."
- Art Student

"She was as beautiful as a doll… more precisely, she would have been, if not for a tired, one might even say, dead expression on her face, as if of a decrepit old woman. Long hair dirty with dust and empty eyes only intensified the effect. The black robe was discolored and torn in many places, the contours of the body were outlined by rusty bracers and a cracked plate at the waist, scraps of chains dangled from a leather collar, and metal boots were falling apart. A large fresh scar disfigured a flat chest, peeping through the rips of tissue, as if someone was trying to rip out the girl's heart."
- Dead Book’s description

"A girl of about ten was walking along the branches of one of the trees. Her neat, pretty face was framed by curly dark gray curls that matched wonderfully with a ruffled blue dress. Proud posture and confident gait spoke of good upbringing."
- Antoinette’s description

"Diswards are terrible bibliomaniacs. They are ready to exchange half of their possessions for a single book."
- Dead Book

"Wesley Disward, known behind the scenes as an ardent bibliomaniac, was looking for one place. And he created this basement to hide its existence… The Dantalian's Bookshelf."
- Dead Book

"… The key that will open the sealed door to the library. I came here to take it and become who I should be!"
- Dead Book

"Hugh Anthony Disward. This is the name of the owner, or rather, the key-keeper who guards the entrance to the library and who gave me so much trouble..."
- Dead Book

"The Dantalian's Bookshelf is a royal palace… a palace of wisdom, where a treasure is kept, which is more valuable than all gold, silver and stones taken together - pure, uncluttered knowledge of Phantom Books! I will become a princess in this palace! The new Biblioprincess!"
- Dead Book

"This is the Kairos’ Dynastic History… It pulls the reader out of the flow of time and allows him to control this very flow."
- Dead Book

"Time is not just a straight river that flows from the past to the future. Happy moments fly by in a matter of seconds, boring ones last forever. Sometimes fast-moving events seem to stretch out for long hours, something is repeated several times, or time turns backwards altogether, causing the notorious feeling of déjà vu. This is the so-called time perception of a person, which does not affect the environment. However, the Kairos’ Dynastic History subordinates the flow of time to the will of the reader and rewrites the rest of the world in accordance with the inner time perception."
- The Key-Keeper

"Well, kid, how do you feel now? How do you feel knowing that you will die from a bullet that will reach you only after a few hours? This little piece of lead will pierce your aristocratic forehead, rip your skull, scream into your brain, scatter it around and kill you. But you won't die right away, no. You will suffer for eternity in the middle of a sea of ​​fear and pain, and you will not be able to lose consciousness or go insane."
- Dead Book

"It's just a Dead Book. A fragment of a heretical bibliomaniac, who brought her love of books to the point of absurdity and wished to become a book herself forever. A living book that has preserved human consciousness… and imitates a person."
- Dalian

"Turning yourself into a book is too much. Probably, this bibliomaniac was carried away by forbidden knowledge, which should not exist in this world, and she herself became a rational Phantom Book."
- Dalian

"Truly… Truly you are right, Black Biblioprincess. I am no longer human. My skin is the cover, my flesh is knowledge, my blood is writing. I got to know the books deeper than others, I saw their very essence! Therefore, I am worthy to become the new Biblioprincess who rules over the Dantalian's Bookshelf."
- Dead Book

"This is not a palace, but a prison… Yes. A tangled world in a vessel, a dungeon for a terrible monster, whose name is Knowledge. And the Biblioprincess is just a sacrifice, an offering to a monster to atone for sins."
- The Girl in the Bookshelf

"A long time ago I opened this library and released disasters into the world: epidemics, lust, suffering, delusions, wars, murders, destruction, death… like Pandora, the maiden of myths… That’s why I’m here. I guard the sleep of Phantom Books so that they never fall into the hands of unworthy readers again. This is my payback. And the library is my cell."
- The Girl in the Bookshelf

"Looks like carbonatite. Age - several hundred, or even thousands of years. Preserved perfectly. But the most interesting thing is the text. As I understand it, it tells how to get to the place where all the books containing forbidden knowledge that should not exist in the world end up. A place called… Phantom Book Cemetery."
- Lazarus Goldin

"Henry Gaveston became famous for crossing Africa on foot three times. During one of the expeditions, he stumbled upon an unusual ruin, which he called the Phantom Book Cemetery. More precisely, he found a group of strange rocks, where many human bones and stone tablets, covered with mysterious symbols, lay, from which the doctor concluded that these were the remains of an ancient civilization."
- Phantom Book of the King

"Lazarus was thin, frail and not particularly handsome, but he exuded such oppression that everyone present involuntarily wanted to kneel down and bow their heads, as in front of a ruler or a saint. And the longer he held the tablet, the harder he pressed."
- Phantom Book of the King

"The Book of Royal Power does not exist in a single copy. People have found these stone tablets for a long time, but no one has yet deciphered the text on them… I don't know much. First, it is one of the oldest Phantom Books on the planet. Secondly, it is made from a very rare mineral that can only be found in the central regions of Africa. Thirdly, it gives the reader a truly royal grandeur. The others simply cannot resist his orders."
- Dalian

"Only the worthy, only the true chosen one of the Book of Royal Power will get to the Phantom Book Cemetery."
- Lazarus Goldin

"I live to burn everything that is somehow connected with Phantom Books. Including the knowledge of the readers."
- Hal Kamhout

"Mithril was the name given to a phantom metal that should not have existed in this world. It was believed that it possessed the luster of silver and the strength of steel, and also expelled evil."
- Vignette of Eternal Twilight

"The Marquess of Asquith was a significant figure in the political and economic affairs of the country. His relatives owned many large companies both in the kingdom and abroad. And even now, ten years after the death of the Marquess, the name "Asquith" could open many doors. By the way, the Marquess was also famous as an avid bibliomaniac, second only to Wesley Disward. He had a large collection of rare books, the pearl of which he rightfully considered the Vignette of Eternal Twilight. He wanted to give it to his wife, but did not have time and died. People said that a few days before his death, Asquith sealed the book with his own hand and hid it somewhere in his ancestral castle."
- Vignette of Eternal Twilight

"The Phantom Book was a dollhouse, and its reader was a child playing with dolls. He could push them, bend, crumple, break, and, having had enough fun, drive the victims into a corner and mercilessly kill them, taking away their vitality.

- Dalian
