Example text

That time—weeks, perhaps—had caught up to him. Templars were crying out, one or two weeping openly, and others laughing at the spectacle. Siemhouk turned her back on the dead man, carried the scroll to Nibenay and put it in his pudgy, thick-fingered hand. Then she sat down again, as if waiting for some other supplicant to come before the high consorts, while Shen’ti’s body finished its rapid deterioration not five paces away. What, Kadya wondered, did she see in his head? And what was it that made her pull out so abruptly?

But I’m no adventurer, Ruhm. ” “I haven’t told you this story? ” Aric touched the scar that bisected his arched left eyebrow, like a tiny pink worm parting the hair. He was sure he had told Ruhm, maybe a couple of times. But Ruhm might have forgotten, or he might just be toying with Aric again. ” “I made it myself, for myself. I wasn’t too good at swordsmithing yet, but it came out half decent just the same.

She would have all the power and authority of a high consort—the templar who, according to Nibenay’s plan, was meant to be the ultimate authority, and would be again if anything ever happened to Siemhouk. Not that Kadya wanted to see that happen, of course. But Siemhouk was right. This discovery, if it was as the dead man had described, could change the course of history. Whoever controlled the metal, and brought it to Nibenay, would be a most important individual in the coming days and years and centuries of the Shadow King’s rule.
