Enjoy an exclusive excerpt:
“Lady Aradel.” Tallus’s voice broke into her thoughts, and she turned around again, unable to hide her surprise that he approached her. “It is good to see you again.”
She felt her cheeks warm softly at his attention. She glanced back at him to find him grinning unabashed. Careful not to stumble over her words she replied, “And you. In these trying times it is good to see a familiar face.”
“Yes,” he replied still grinning. “I just wanted to thank you again.”
“Your continual thanks aren’t necessary,” Aradel replied, facing him completely. “You and your father have worked tirelessly. Has there been any progress at The Wall?”
The Queen elects had each been assigned weeks at the wall, and hers had already passed. It would be some time before Aradel would be up again to help with the repair. Queen Vesna had been talking about going to their mountain palace. Deep within the Lonely Mountains, the power to repair The Wall was waiting for them. They would need to journey there to see if the moon pearls could harness the power of the ancient Ice Crystal and fix the tear in the magical fabric of The Wall.
Tallus’s grin fell a little. “It is higher, but continues to slowly melt. It will take some time for it to return to its former glory.”
Aradel nodded, guarding her emotions, and looked back over the river. A light fog kissed the surface of the water, but she could still see when the first boat broke the horizon. It seemed that fewer ships with fewer people were coming toward them than had last time. She glanced back at Tallus and found that he, too, was watching the boats.
“I had better go back,” he muttered and started away.
Aradel faced him. “Tallus,” she said. He paused, looking back at her expectantly. For some reason she felt comfortable around him even though she had known him such a short time. There was something unassuming about him that put her at ease. “Please be careful,” she finally added.
He nodded eagerly as he replied, “I always am.”
