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.

He might have been saying, “Going back to be born,” or any of ten other things that made no sense. “Something‟s wrong,” she said. ” “Back,” he replied. He kept walking. For another ten steps she watched him go, trying to understand, but then she knew she didn‟t have time to understand, because the howling and screaming was beneath them now, echoing up through the caverns.

She reckoned they had gone a few hundred yards when she saw light once again, at first just a veneer on the stone, but soon enough to see where they were stepping again. A good thing, too, because the path led them to another cliff. 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.
