Some quotes from Nathaniel:

"It has been a year since my spirit left me a broken man ... Heed the warning in these pages and beware." 
"I recall shivering despite the heat and my hand crossed my heart – a fickle attempt to ward off evil." 
"She had me. I was in utter awe of her charms, and they were many." 
"My face was white, like winter. An inflamed festering wound pronounced itself on the side of my neck."
