Gwenno had expected – even hoped – that being squire to Dorrin Verrakai would mean being witness to strange sights and taking on even stranger challenges. But she never thought that any of that strangeness would have to do with children.
But when she discovered two of the littlings solemnly playing at “sacrifice” with their dolls, she knew she must meet the test. Dorrin, for all her kindness, was death on any trace of blood magery. So it was up to Gwenno – who had used her own dolls even more unkindly – to find a way to prove that this was only play.
