Only moving, going through every ordinary motion, kept her from curling up in a corner of this aerie and never emerging.
For it was friendship that had grown here, even in war. True friendship, to last beyond the oceans that would separate them once more.Sartaq said to Dorian, We asked you here today because we have a rather unusual request.
Dorian lifted a brow.Sartaq winced. When we visited the Ferian Gap, some of our rukhin found wyvern eggs. Untended and abandoned. Some of them now wish to stay here. To look after them. To train them.Nesryn blinked, right along with Dorian. No one had mentioned this to her. I—I thought the rukhin never left their aeries, Nesryn blurted.
These are young riders, Sartaq said with a smile. Only two dozen. He turned to Dorian. But they begged me to ask you if it would be permissible for them to stay when we leave.Dorian considered. I dont see why they couldnt. Something sparked in his eyes, an idea formed and then set aside. I would be honored, actually.
Just dont let them bring the wyverns home, Hasar groused. I never want to see another wyvern for as long as I live.
Kashin patted her on the head. Hasar snapped her teeth at him.Chaol, to his credit, winced and returned to the map. If we can get past the Ferian Gap, then we continue northward.
Past Endovier. That path would take them right past Endovier. Aelins stomach tightened. Rowans hand grazed her own.We have to decide soon, Sartaq declared. Right now, we sit between the Ferian Gap and Morath. It would be very easy for Erawan to send hosts to crush us between them.
Hasar turned to Chaol. Is Yrene anywhere near done?He leaned an elbow against the arm of his wheeled chair. Even with the few survivors, there are too many of them. Wed be here weeks.
