This weekend, I have more for you from The Sorcerer's Guardian, which will be out on the 28th (a little over two weeks! how did that happen?) and is 30% off at Dreamspinner right now. In this snippet, Savarin has gone to visit his friend before he leaves on his journey, both to ask her for information and to complain that things aren't going his way, including how he gained an unwanted escort in Loriot.
Gemella laughed when he told her, even as he glared at her. “You’re too used to everyone snapping to at whatever you say. You’re upset because no one is doing what you want right now.”
Her statement did nothing to alleviate his disgruntlement. It might have deepened it. “That isn’t the point.”
“I think it is.”
