Here are some berries for later. He felt her press something into his hands. She turned and left, walking quickly past the demon cat without looking back. Instead of helping him, she had left him with more questions, and a handful of berries that he couldnt even lift to his mouth. He looked at them, entertaining some vague hope that Kyra had slipped him something to help him escape. But no, they were just regular bush berries, some already bleeding black juice into his palm.more...

Her attackers footsteps faded. By the time her vision cleared, she was alone. Her right forearm throbbed painfully, and she pressed the bottom of her tunic against the wound to stop the bleeding. Drawing a ragged breath, she sat down and cradled her injured arm. The building was silent, with no signs of anyone, friendly or unfriendly, passing by. Her breathing slowed, but the horror stayed in her chest. It wasnt just the attack. Her nightmares were getting worse, the emotions becoming more vivid each time.more...

Tristam only managed to choke down a single piece of meat, but it didnt take him long to realize he should have forced himself to eat more. By morning, his throat was parched and his stomach ached with hunger. He pulled against his ropes in the vain hope that they had loosened during the night, but they didnt budge. All the while, his feline guard watched his efforts through half-closed eyes. The sun climbed overhead, passing the halfway mark and sucking any remaining moisture from his skin. Some time in midafternoon, his guard suddenly sprang to its feet, staring into the forest at a shape that took Tristam longer to make out. It was Kyra. She approached slowly, with a bag in one hand and a flask in the other.more...

Somehow shed stumbled into a pit she couldnt escape. She just regretted dragging Flick, Bella, Idalee, and Lettie with her. When the knight finally spoke, he was uncertain, as if surprised at his own words. Perhaps we can make an exception. Ill speak with Malikel. T W E N T Y - T W O Kyra could smell the fear emanating from the mans pores. She breathed deeply and smiled in pleasure. Her knife was balanced against his throat, and she felt the tension in his muscles as he stood frozen against the wall. Assassins surrounded them, watching. She was about to make her move when the assassins dissolved into mist.more...

Have you eaten yet? Despite her exhaustion, Kyra smiled. It didnt matter when or in what condition she walked into the dining room. That was always the first question Bella asked. No, Bella. Flicks voice carried a tragic air that rivaled Brendels best performances. We havent eaten in weeks.more...

He sang, first of Evelynes passionate love with the felbeast, their brief but beautiful time together. Kyra wanted to throw her spoon across the room and cover her ears. In the real world, beasts didnt turn into men. Instead, it was the other way around. Flick finally returned after the evening meal. He had a neatly dressed girl on his armthe wool merchants daughter.more...

People int that dull. The boy jerked his hand back. You int never seen a griffin before. No, but Ive seen a chicken. Look, the traders can say anything they want about their goods, and folk wont argue with them. But nobodyll believe you went across the Aerin Mountains. Youll end up with your money taken if youre lucky, or flogged and pilloried if youre not. Real fear flashed through his eyes, and Kyras annoyance gave way to pity. She shook her head and handed the boy a coin.more...

Even when it was just the two of you. Idalee wiped a furtive hand across her eyes, and Kyra pretended not to notice. It was then that she remembered. Id forgotten. James gave me some extra coin to share with anyone who needed it. I cant give it to my friends, but Im sure we could pass it to the other gutter rats. Do you want to visit them tomorrow? Coin? Idalee looked confused.more...

Willem put his documents aside. You are dismissed. She let the Red Shields escort her out through the atrium, and then to the compound gates. Nobles and staff hurried about their tasks, and no one paid her any particular heed. The soldiers left her just outside the main gate. Alone in the open air, Kyra finally felt the tightness drain out of her muscles. It was hard to believe that she was actually free. She was turning toward the southwest district when she saw a familiar form waiting by the compound wall. Tristam inclined his head in greeting.more...

Her friends werent the only ones she avoided. Kyra had not returned to the Guildhouse since the raid. James would have noticed her absence by now, but she couldnt face him. Not yet. When Kyra stepped into the kitchen, Flick was chasing a squealing Idalee as Lettie cowered in the corner. Watch out, Kyra! Flicks a felbeast! Idalee shrieked as Flick scooped her off the floor and spun her around. I see.more...
