Then well just have to make more, Gwen said. So what are you planning? Abby asked. Gwen wasntthat was the problem. She hadnt a clue. All she knew for certain was that she wasnt going to end up like Avon, and to have any chance at survival, she couldnt manage on her own.more...

So thats what you were waiting for. None of the men jabbing their blades had said a wod. No demands to drop his dagger, to give up, to surrender. It appeared the church had strict penalties for defiling the home of their holy leader. Royces options were limited to just two: death by sword or death by falling. He put his back to the wall to see which side would lunge first. The guy to his right with the short beard gave him a sneer. Royce crouched, ready to move. His best bet would be to dodge under whatever stroke came.more...

My mother died of pridestupid, foolish, asinine pride. She actually died of it. Too proud to ask anyone for help. Too proud to admit her husband was a lousy, miserable bastard.more...

I said Id protect you. I may seem young, but you can trust me. Ill be right next door. If anything Thats precisely the problem. What if he blocks your door and you cant get out? Or what if you fall asleep and dont hear him breaking in? How long does it take to slit a throat? Her hand went to her neck, then lowered slowly, brushing past her breast. She took a breath, closed her eyes, and said, I would feel much safer if you spent the night in my room.more...

So hes got money, and Grue plans on letting him have you. All the color drained from Jollins face. She slowly sat up. Me? Hell beat her to death, Etta said with a lisp that made the word death sound like deaf, and coming from that busted mouth it was more than just words. Yeah, he will, and she wont be the lastunless we leave now. But ou almost died when you tried, and Hilda Both Hilda and I made the same mistake We tried to make it on our own.more...

Sebastian said in a supportive tone, Its not your fault. I suspect that lady has been through something terrible. What do you mean? Few women travel unescorted. And did you see how little food she took? She is clearly distressed. Maybe she just doesnt eat much, and she could be on her way to meet, you know, someone. Perhaps, but I think its likely shes terrified, and the rumors, of course, have us all on edge. Vivian had abandoned her plate and sat on one of the crates staring at the river. Raising a hand, she wiped away tears.more...

Thats the point, really, Arcadius said. What good is it to have duplicates? Opposites extend your range, your knowledge, your capabilities. If the two of you could learn to get along, you could be quite formidable, because you are so different. You are both at crossroads, unsure where to go next. Learn to trust each other, and you might find your way. Uh-huh. Royce stood up.more...

Mae screamed in fear. Whatever business they had been engaged in had stopped with Avons shrieks. Gwen kicked at the loose post of the beds footboard. The carpenter had constructed the frame from solid stumps of maple, but hed done a lousy job fitting the pieces together. Two more kicks and the leg toppled, collapsing the mattress to the floor along with Mae and the redhead from East March. Running like a jousting knight, Gwen drove the post into Avons door.more...

What can I do for you? His question caught her off guard. She had expected to be rebuffed, insulted, or ignored the way the woolen merchant had treated her. Gwen had brought Rose along for that very reason, figuring no one could say no to Roses big round eyes, but he wasnt even looking at Rose. Ah theres an unused building on Wayward Street in the Lower Quarter across from The Hideous Head Tavern and Alehouse. I Hold on.more...

If someone comes at you with a stick, does it really matter how old they are? Yes. Theyre just kids. They arent old enough to understand what theyre doing. And neither are you. Me? Youre not much older. Royce, who had just coaxed a flame to life and was carefully feeding it twigs, paused.more...
