Gypsy and Sage kin continue searching for a way to save their
world. But the yellow-eyed woman hides somewhere in the darkness,
she won't be sated until she overpowers them all.
|From City of
“Five coppers,” the woman
behind her said in an
accent as she placed hands on the little one’s shoulders. “She know how
to please a man.”
Cass held her tongue and glanced at the men. Snowy
shook his head. Thad grunted and gave an angry look to the woman who
held her hand out for coins. The woman realized no one wanted the girl
so she hauled her off in another direction.
“That’s disgusting,” Maesa said. No one argued.
Cass’s face flared with heat. No wonder her father
came here, with tidbit girls for the taking. She cursed under her
breath and squeezed her belt knife until her fingers went numb. Thad
studied her but didn’t say anything. The way she felt, she might have
taken his head off if he’d uttered a single word. He wasn’t like her
root father. None of the Gypsies were like that awful man. But that
didn’t curb her rage.
