Chapter Twelve: Wounded

Spite tucked her wings and deposited Wy on a mound of dirty blankets and rugs, before staggering a few steps aside and collapsing, panting heavily. Her wings lay limp and spread at her sides and her legs were splayed beneath her.

Wy tried to sit up, barely containing a raw moan between gritted teeth.… Read more

Chapter Eleven: Desperate

Wy guided Spite from shelter to shelter, taking hidden paths through heavily wooded areas and getting her to crawl through muddy underbrush, apologising for the sting of nettles and the scratch of brambles. Her sodden robes ripped and tore, but she held in her gasps and cries of pain and focused only on Spite, on keeping her calm.… Read more

Chapter Ten: Cowardly

It took everything Wy had not to yelp at the sight of the Elysian Knight. ‘Lady Arielle,’ she said, in what she desperately hoped was a casual tone. She shook the haunch of mutton, sending drips of salty water flying from it; Lady Arielle’s nose wrinkled in distaste.… Read more

Chapter Nine: Contrary

When next she visited Amys Mor, Wy found that Lady Arielle had already arrived. From the forest line, she could see the Knight striding around the village, trailed by awed onlookers and servants wearing the same blue-and-green tunics that Mirran had worn on their initial visit to the town.… Read more

Chapter Eight: Possessive

Wy waited at the forest’s edge, fiddling with the tattered edge of her coat. She’d gotten Pan home and had just enough time to get back to the town’s border, and already she was regretting everything.

She’d spent too long away from the Blackwing.… Read more

Chapter Seven: Wary

‘Wydis of Amys Mor.’ Mirran’s voice was light, the accent strange but different from Lady Arielle’s. More lyrical. She didn’t smile, but clenched her fist and put her hand on her chest, silver hair flopping into her pale brown eyes. She was lithely built but with broad shoulders, and much taller than Wy, who got the impression she was being looked down on in more ways than one.… Read more

Chapter Six: Common

The lure of the dragon proved too much. She swaddled Pan and let her into her father’s bedroom, tucking her neatly under the bed, where she would feel safer and sheltered. ‘Is that better?’ she asked the goat.

Pan nipped at Wy’s fingers as Wy tried to scratch her between the ears, which Wy took as a yes.… Read more

The next day found Wy standing outside a door in the town while Pan tried to stomp on her feet.

‘Cut it out.’ She nudged the goat with her knee, and Pan baad irritably. ‘Mama wanted to turn you into dinner when you were born,’ she reminded her.… Read more

Chapter Three: Cursed

She got her supplies from the local healer, an old woman with a kind smile for anyone who wasn’t Wy. Her house was filled with plants and shelves of strange vials and the air was heavy with the scent of earth and flowers, a home that wouldn’t have been out of place for a witch but the healer always made it clear that she and Wy were nothing alike.… Read more
