Excerpt: Varya Leangrin did not do her own carrying. She had others do the work: Jac and Mari were bundled with sheets over their heads, tied very thoroughly with silk cords binding their arms to their sides, and made towalk; Varya had pressed some of the citizens of the Lost Kingdom into her service by assuring them that they were doing a good deed, that this was for the women’s own health. Jac did not walk silently; she lectured Varya, scolded her, harangued her, her language growing increasingly “purple” as they moved toward the professor’s workshop tower.
Excerpt: Mari turned to Jac with a joyful smile. “Jac, this is Professor Malone.”
Jac had whirled back to the door as it closed, slamming her hand on the thick oak as she heard the key turn in the lock. She bowed her head for a second, then she straightened and turned back to enter the room. “Professor, my upbringing demands that I say ‘nice to meet you,’ but what I really want to say is: Is there a way out of this room? What avenues have you explored?”
