I borrowed a javelin and threw it for a while; I made a target by stuffing an old
linen sack with straw, and then my Turks joined me. I learned a fair amount about
throwing a javelin that day, although the Turks throw with a little wrist flick
because they think of it as a cavalry weapon to be used very close. I tried some
longer throws, and I was just negotiating a trip outside the hostel's yard with my
captor, in sign language, when a dozen Turks rode into the yard. They had four
captive knights, ...

My captor—I realised I didn't know his name, but he knew mine—pulled me
gently towards that long counter and the smells coming from the kitchen. Smells I
couldn't identify. Whatever they were cooking, it smelled delicious. The empty
ache in my stomach told me it was long past time when I should have eaten. My
captor pulled me to a stop in front of the counter and said something to the
person in the kitchen in that language my interpreter chip couldn't identify, a
guttural language ...

The man snarled wordlessly, a sound of clear threat, and I stopped. We had
managed enough noise between the two ofus, though, that my quarry heard and
turned back. For the moment or two it took him to reach us, I thought he might
prove my savior. As he drew near, unfortunately, my hopes were dashed. He
spoke, not to that was neither Scirling nor Vystrani. They clearly knew each. me,
but to my captor, and my captor answered him, in a language. a shadow in the
night 123.

My captor, a man of power, seemed to wish me unharmed. That made him my
champion for the moment. We stopped. I could see the ship's rail and another
beyond. A grappling hook hung upon the Gallant, the rope extending out of view.
I could only imagine the sort of nerve it required to leap from ship to ship amid
cannon fire, blades and ball shot. Boarders those men were called. My captor-
escort shouted something in a language I could not recognize. A moment later a
rope landed ...

She said something in the language of the Nomads, then placed another card on
the ground at the end of the vertical line. Each of the cards had strange pictures
of men and women on them, and words or something written on them that I
couldn't read. She was doing an oracle reading, I realized, but in a manner totally
different from the way I knew and with unfamiliar cards. My captor dragged me
with him as he approached the man in white, then let me go and kowtowed to him

The language of the dead. It mademy fangs ache justtohear it. Shaeman, his
eyes fixed on his twin, whistled low under his breath. In the middle of the crowd
complimenting him on hisfight, Vrael stiffened, alert. His eyes scannedthe streets,
looking for the source of the noise. Someone grabbed me from behind, yelling
out in that language.I scrabbled at the arm around my neck as my hood was
yanked down. My claws cut deep gashes in my captor's flesh, but they didn't
seem to even ...

When the small man, in my penthouse, when I had lain bound on my bed, had
touched me, the large man, abruptly, angrily, had said that word to him. The
smaller man had then turned away. It struck me then what was familiar about the
language Targo spoke. I had heard only a word or two of it before. My captors
had conversed, almost entirely, in English. And I supposed they had been, at
least on the whole, native speakers of English. But I recalled the accent of the
large man, who ...

I bit my lip and put my hand out toward the red beads. "Don't touch that!" Josiah's
command split the air. I dropped my hand to my side, and the Indian spun around
to face the dozen white men from the wagon train, who sat on their horses with
rifles in their hands. My heart swelled with joy when I saw Josiah in the lead. I
glanced around the camp, gauging my chances of making a run for it. Several
Indian men armed with bows, spears, and rifles watched the white visitors. My
captor ...
