A new excerpt from Warrior’s Curse…
“I’m aware of how curious you are about the Lahon. How would you like to see them for yourself?”
“What do you mean?”
“How would you like to accompany me on the manhunt?”
“Mother would never permit it.” Her pulse raced at the prospect of seeing a barbarian in the flesh.
“She would. I already asked her.”
“She said yes?” Reena widened her eyes. “You’re jesting. How?”
Honna’s hesitation revealed the answer. Becauseobserving from afaris the closest I will ever come to mating, and my mother seeks to grant my dying wish. A measure of excitement receded. Why, now, when she felt better, did people assume the worst? Could it be a symptom of her malady that she rallied before she keeled over?
“I convinced her that due to your remission, you can handle the journey. She knows how interested you are in the Lahon, so she agreed to let you accompany me under one condition.”
“You resume taking the herb.”
Reena grimaced. “All right.”
“Thank you. I’m so glad you’ll join me. It will make this whole experience bearable. I can rest easy knowing I’m there to care for you, and you’ll get to see the Lahon. Perhaps then you’ll realize they’re not what you’ve built them up to be in your mind.” Honna dug into her medicine pouch and extracted a small vial, which she emptied into a goblet sitting on the bedside table. After filling the glass with water, she handed it to Reena. “Drink up.”
Wrinkling her nose, she took a sip and fought off a shudder.
Honna smiled approvingly. “I’ll go make the arrangements for our journey. We’ll leave when dawn breaks on the morrow.”
Oh, no…don’t do it Reena!!!
