Ralata could feel its searing heat, and the pain was now a gift, something she could feed upon, like a hunter crouched over a fresh kill. She’d lost her horse. She’d lost her people. Everything had been taken away from her, everything except this final gift. The broken moon was a blurred smear almost lost in the green glow of the Strangers in the Sky.

A phrase, over and over again, his voice hoarse, thick. ’ His shoulders shook, and then she heard the rumble of laughter, a deathly, humourless sound. ’ ‘Then he is at peace. At long last. ’ ‘I doubt it,’ she said. He twisted round to regard her.
