They know,” thought Aeren desperately, “God, Kovar!”

Calm!” came Kovar’s urgent thought. “They know nothing! Nothing!” Kovar showed no emotion as he looked at the little Inquisitor woman who peered back with a satisfied expression on her face, certain she had hit a nerve.

Then his smile appeared, a broad, friendly, disarming display of thin red lips and white teeth, predatory and youthfully handsome at once. If one was about to be eaten, one would enjoy the experience.

Riet looked confused. “Infirmity?”
