    Summary

    Giddean Danu shook his head, doubt plainly written across his dark face. “If we are to openly oppose the Chancellor, we need the support of the Jedi. We need their moral authority. Otherwise, what do we have?”

    “The moral authority of the Jedi, such as it is,” Bana Breemu said, “has been spent lavishly upon war; I fear they have none left for politics.”

    “One Jedi, then,” Padmé offered to the others. At least let me speak the truth to my love. At least. Please, she pleaded with them silently. “There is one Jedi—one whom I truly know all of us can trust absolutely …”

    Her voice trailed off into appalled silence when she realized that she wasn’t talking about Anakin.

    Summary

    For as long as I can remember, the threat of storms has loomed over my head. The notion that everything you love and hold dear could be blown away in one night, sucked up and tossed about by a swirling funnel of destruction, is familiar to me.

    Summary

    Clarice stopped in front of Lecter’s cell and he smiled up at her from his cot. He didn’t greet her, instead launching into a new topic.

    “Do you know the story of Oedipus and the Sphinx, Clarice? The beast promised to eat any who could not answer the riddle. But Oedipus was clever enough to answer the riddle but blind to his fate.”

    “Is this a thinly veiled way of calling me a dense motherfucker?” Clarice replied dryly. Hannibal actually chuckled.

    “Never, Clarice. You’re far too bright for that.”
