She knew she didn‟t have everything she needed. It was like cooking; there was one more taste needed to pull everything together. She just didn‟t have any idea what it was. Hecua‟s place was huge. It had once been the local Mages‟ Guild hall, and there were still three or four doddering practitioners who were in and out of the rooms upstairs. Hecua honored their memberships, even though there was no such organization as the Mages‟ Guild anymore.

This one opened in the belly of the mountain, a vast, dome-shaped cavity open at the bottom so they could once more see the destruction of Lilmoth.
