This week I have another snippet from The Sorcerer's Guardian (which will be out on Monday!) for you. It's a bit longer than six sentences (sorry!). Savarin and Loriot stopped for the night at an inn early in their journey and are getting on their way in the morning, and Loriot is learning what life is often like for Savarin.
Loriot turned to Savarin with the same quizzical look he’d had at breakfast. Only this time Loriot didn’t leave the question unspoken. “What was that about?” Loriot asked as he secured the food in one of his saddlebags. “The innkeeper’s daughter acting like that?”
He mounted up before he answered, taking time to decide if he wanted to explain and how much. “I’m the most powerful sorcerer in Tournai.”
“And?” Loriot mounted his own horse, then turned an inquiring gaze on him.
“And she obviously knew that.”
“And that makes some people uncomfortable.”
