Despite the absence of flames—or perhaps because of them—Vaddon stared into the fireplace as if he were searching for something within it. He didn’t turn to greet Lirra and the others as they entered, and she took that as a bad sign. Vaddon wasn’t a man given to deep contemplation, and when he was lost in thought, it usually didn’t bode well. ” He spoke without turning to face them, his voice soft. “His wound is healed,” Ksana said. ” “I’m glad. ” Lirra noted that Ksana refrained from mentioning her concerns about the state of Osten’s mind, most likely because she didn’t wish to say anything to Vaddon until Osten woke and she’d had a chance to examine him more thoroughly.

The symbiont is on the verge of claiming your body as its own and you have to fight, and fight hard, or be lost.

Attempting to control symbionts is a chancy proposition under the best of conditions, but Osten—” “Nothing personal,” Lirra interrupted, “but I’m bound to get a lecture from my father about what happened today. ” The cleric scowled and was about to reply when the infirmary door opened and Rhedyn stepped into the room. His shadowy aspect wasn’t drawn so tightly around him at the moment, and his features were clear—handsome face, chestnut-colored hair brushing his shoulders, neatly trimmed beard, and piercing blue eyes—though even with the sunlight from the open window, he still appeared partially cloaked in shade.
