To give you a taste of the story, here is a short excerpt.
There was a feathery rustling of bird’s wings and suddenly the small
green–winged bird was gone and a woman stood before the window. She was
tall and dressed in green, with green feathers plaited into her long pale
blond hair. Her eyes were dark and slightly slanted above her high
“Why the attitude of despair, Madraga?” she said, smiling cynically.
“Your people have come to take her back,” he said. “Now I have no chance.”
Sometimes without meaning to, a person looks at the sun and though he may
look away quickly, the afterimage of the sunlight is burnt onto his eye and
is part of everything he sees till it fades. So it was for Duke Wolf Madraga
now he had seen Elena Starchild. Except that the after¬image did not fade,
but continued to remain part of everything he did.
Thanks for the post, Jane, and best of luck with the book.
