A Domani. ” The fool sounded admiring! “Not a mutiny. A raid on a grand scale. ” Dragonsworn. The word was like a fist clutching Suroth’s throat. ” Galgan grimaced and made a sign against evil, apparently unconscious of doing so. ” Red-hot anger needed to erupt at Galgan, but screaming at another of the High Blood would lower her eyes.
