The monsters of Fairy chitter and cackle and screech all around us while Tiernan holds me tightly, hiding us within his magic. Under the cover of some roots, his body laid over mine, we wait.

She left one clue to the identity of her killer – the name of Alfari Ambassador Silverleaf. But he couldn’t have done it; he was out of the country when she was killed!
