What do our heroes do when they're up against the wall? Some buck wild things. Gydeon loses her temper, Tonreir hatches a plan, Wingthe takes a leap, and Iria learns why curiosity killed the cat.
There is something old in this castle, something powerful, something the heroes aren't prepared for — and it's not Lord Oberon.
It's rude to read other people's diaries, but that sentiment may not apply to a century-old vampire whom our heroes are hunting.
In a rare moment of quiet, our heroes consider a moral dilemma. Tonreir stands with the natural order, Iria pushes for peace, Wingthe makes a deal, and Gydeon isn't really paying attention.
It's time to face the castle's first vampire. Iria contemplates the sun, Tonreir summons a weapon, Gydeon makes a break for it, and Wingthe loses a little something. If only someone had brought decapitation.
