I must be in the vault, held in place by solid stone. Beneath the house. The dead of my family press around me. We're entombed by marble shot through with a vein of pink, a rare and costly stone, thick enough to keep the waters of the tarn from seeping down into the crypt.

I summoned every ounce of strength within me, called on every triumph of my endless, immortal existence to buoy me, and forced myself to stand.

"Nice collection you've got in there, Queenie," Arliss remarked as he approached the table. "There's a few odd duck book collectors salted around the Tearling. I could probably get you a damn good price."

"Not a chance. I'd give up my crown first."
