Bumble (Legend of the IrIndicti #1) Illusion (The Vampire Destiny #2)

The fountain exploded in a blur of ancient stone and water—but Aeduan and the girl named Iseult were already soaring for the nearest alley. Clearly one of these Marstoks was a Tidewitch, and now that he had a source, Aeduan would be no match.

A mountain bat. The mountain bat from earlier. Iseult didn’t know why she was so surprised to see one. After all, they were creatures of carnage, and a battle raged here.Time seemed frozen as she held her ground beside Aeduan, taking in the monster. A shudder moved down the beast, rippling through its dark fur. Rain sloughed off.

Borne in Blood (Saint-Germain #20)

Then it lunged for Iseult’s head, teeth bared and jaws wide.Her instincts took over. She twirled sideways, ripping her cutlass free. Strong. She felt stronger than she’d ever felt before. And she couldn’t help but wonder—a smattering of thought between breaths—if it was because …Her speed was still nothing compared to Aeduan’s. His sword was already there, slicing roughly. He connected with the mountain bat’s fur, and mossy brown tufts fell with the rain.

Beneath a Blood Red Moon (Alliance Vampires #1)

Its silver Threads shone brighter. Iseult didn’t think she could cleave those Threads—and the fact that she wanted to, desperately, sent sickened heat punching up her throat.But now was not the time for guilt. Nor revulsion. Nor regret. Iseult had to use this new strength to get herself and Aeduan away.

As if on command, Aeduan charged low, but the bat was rolling down in a blur of shrieking forest shades. Aeduan careened directly toward its fangs.

Iseult charged, a war cry building in her throat. Me! she screamed. Come for me!Safi swallowed—or tried to. Her throat was too clogged. Not only did that Bloodwitch know what she was, but the Emperor of Cartorra did too. Who else had found out? Who else would come hunting for her?

Don’t worry, Mathew said, clearly sensing her panic. Everything is prepared, Safi, and we’ll get you to safety. He pushed her toward the black blanket, but she dug in her heels.What about Iseult? I’m not leaving her.

When the Sacred Ginmill Closes (Matthew Scudder #6)

Habim and I will find her—No. Safi ripped from his grasp, not caring that smoke plumed over rooftops now. That the roar of a nearby battle grew louder each second she stood her ground. I’m not leaving without Iseult. Tell me where I’m supposed to go, and I’ll get there on my own.

Even after all of this, you still don’t trust us? In the darkness, Mathew’s face was hidden, yet there was no missing the hurt in his voice. We risked everything to get you from that party.I don’t trust Uncle Eron, Safi said. Not after what I’ve seen tonight.

You should trust him. He built a life of shadows and lies, yet he never dragged you into it. Do you know how much that cost him? Cost all of us? Mathew motioned vaguely toward the cart. Believe me when I say that Dom Eron wants nothing more than to keep you safe. That’s what we all want. Now come. We’re out of time.Mathew gripped Safi’s elbow, and his shaded eyes bored into hers. You will ride this cart north, Safi, to meet a boat. You will not move until you get there. The boat will carry you across the sea to a city called Lejna in the Hundred Isles, where you will wait at a coffee shop—one of my coffee shops. Someone will come for you in four days and take you the rest of the way. To freedom, Safi, so you won’t have to marry Henrick. And I promise—on my life and Habim’s—I promise to bring Iseult with us.

The words trilled over Safi. They buzzed through her arm where Mathew’s skin touched her. He was bewitching her. She knew he was doing it—her own Truthwitchery screeched at her that this was deception. Yet Mathew’s magic was stronger than Safi’s. She could no more fight it than the pull of a riptide.Her feet carried her to the cart, her body crawled beneath the blanket, and her mouth said, I will see you across the sea, Mathew.
