“We’ve scanned the whole island around Silenia and there’s no sign of any troops yet,” Julie said when she and Tara returned. “Not even enforcing the curfew: probably because not many people live there. There’s no sign of anyone approaching by boat either. I suppose they might fly in but that would be noticed and I suspect they’ll want to keep this quiet.”

“There’s no sign of troops here yet either,” Alexandra said. “But we’ve heard back from Adrian. He’s awake and recovering from the after-effects of his premonition but is still too shaky to jump. However, they’ve questioned the prisoner and apparently Robert is a Kithreian interloper as well. We’re trying to track him down because if we can break his disguise we might be able to stop this before it starts, but he’s hiding himself.” Read the rest of this entry »

Tarian and Karilya were together when they found them. He was unconscious and Karilya was sobbing in Valeria’s arms. She looked up as the group entered and pulled loose, running to Lyrrekka.

“Mummy! Bad people are coming!”

“We know, sweetness,” Lyrrekka knelt down and hugged her while Sarah hurried to Tarian’s side.

“Thank goodness you’re here,” Valeria said. “I was going to come and find you but I was trying to calm Kari down first. I take it these two weren’t the only ones it happened to?” Read the rest of this entry »

Adrian’s face was drawn when they reached the chamber where he was resting. The glowing imp that had been hovering around Adrian since it arrived had gone – presumably absorbed. Indaturan immediately sat on the edge of the bed.

“What did you see?” he asked gently.

“The same thing the others saw,” Adrian replied. “You know what they saw, right?” Read the rest of this entry »

At some point after they had dumped Dialdra into the cell, she’d shifted to her human morph. Her wings had vanished and the ruby red crystal spikes on her head had become an equally red jaw length bob. She had ignored the cot and stool furnishing the small room and was sitting on the floor in the corner with her head bowed, examining the oath tattoo on her arm. As they entered she looked up and glared sulkily at Indaturan, not even sparing a glance for Ystelyan and Kyle.

“Come to make more demands of me, master?” she said in a bitter tone.

“Well I certainly didn’t come here to see you for pleasure, Dialdra,” he said drily. “Your friend Robert Cantrell, is he himself or another interloper like you?” Read the rest of this entry »

A/N: Hi peeps, due to a change in my personal circumstances I’m running a donation drive. Please check out this news post for details and drop a few pennies in the hat if you can. :-)

Adrian was still unconscious when a second glowing imp appeared in response to Ystelyan’s message. The blue dragon absorbed it and his anxious frown deepened.

“That looks like it’s not good news,” Indaturan said. “Not that we were expecting it to be.” Read the rest of this entry »

Matthias reached out and touched the screen the same way Sarah had. After a moment his eyebrows shot up. “Well that’s interesting. Alarming but interesting.”

“What does she say?” Alexandra asked.

“It seems that one of the children in their program, a girl named Emily, had a precog at the same time our clairvoyants did,” Sarah said. “They did a bit of checking before Sophie sent the email and it seems Robert Cantrell – if he is really Robert – went to the authorities when he fled and somehow got them to listen. He’s told them about this meeting but told them we’re planning a coup and that we’re responsible for the pulse and the crack in the sky.” Read the rest of this entry »

It was dark, the school was on fire and there was gunfire outside. Lydia dodged bullets as she ran desperately among the flames trying to find her parents and siblings. She turned a corner and found herself face to face with a man in fireproof clothing. He froze as he saw her then aimed at her head. She dove to one side as his finger tightened on the trigger, staggered into the wall and– Read the rest of this entry »

“Well,” Louise said when Julie finished her story. “I remember you using that trick a time or two but I never imagined it was possible to push it further and actually become what you were emulating.”

“It sounds like it’s not exactly usual,” Trent said. “What with it nearly killing her.” He pulled a face. “And that’s an unenviable position you’re in. This Gerian appears to be an enemy and you owe him a life debt.”

“He can eat it,” Julie said flatly. “He used me enough to pay for it. I’m not breaking my ethics to help that prat.” Read the rest of this entry »

As Julie made her way to the seat at the centre of the room, the door of the gymnasium opened and Sarah entered with Trent, whose knife wound she’d been treating. His face was still slightly grey but he was obviously at least mostly healed.

“Oh, good,” Trent said. “We haven’t missed the fireworks. That would have been sad.”

Julie paused and looked over at Sarah with a raised eyebrow. “You told him?” Read the rest of this entry »

“Well, that was interesting,” Ystelyan said. “I’m not sure it’s very ethical but it was certainly interesting.”

“We don’t have time to be ethical,” Indaturan said. “Not if we want to save Kayleigh.”

“You think Xantaria-ida won’t know what you did here?” Dialdra had somehow struggled to her hands and knees in spite of her bonds. “You think she won’t cut the girl to pieces for this?” Read the rest of this entry »
