Treason Keep: Book Two of the Hythrun Chronicles - Jennifer Fallon - Google книги
There are no children to replace those who are lost. You will aid the demon child and she will remove the threat of Xaphista. Then we will be free once more. You mean kill him. It's the truth. You've been back for little more than a heartbeat. You could at least try to be sensitive.
This is not easy for any of us. There is no need for you to make it even harder. I forget sometimes what it must be like for you.
I shouldn't be heaping all my anger on you. There's a god or two I'd like to throttle, but it's not your fault. Brak listened idly as Samaranan filled him in on the family happenings, which, considering how much time Sanctuary had spent removed from reality, was a fairly short list. There were no new nieces or nephews or cousins to celebrate. The Harshini and the demons were interdependent, and the creatures could not sustain an increase in their numbers that the Harshini were unable to match. It occurred to Brak that if something were not done soon, the Harshini would no longer be simply hiding.
Their current state of limbo would eventually prove fatal. The knowledge was an added burden he did not want or need. They reached Korandellan's chambers eventually, and the tall, delicately carved doors swung open at their approach. The King was waiting for them, his smile benign, his arms outstretched in welcome. The resemblance between him and the demon child took Brak by surprise. Korandellan was tall and lean and impossibly beautiful, as all the Harshini were. With the demons clustered behind Samaranan's long skirts, Brak fell to his knees and lowered his head, surprised at his need for Korandellan's benediction.
It is I who should bow to you. You have suffered much on our behalf. Even the demons seemed appalled by his disrespect. But the King laughed. You are like a breath of fresh air. Come, get off your knees and let us talk as friends. Samaranan, tell your family to prepare a feast. Tonight we will welcome your lost brother home. The King ignored his objections.

Your brother and I have much to discuss. The demons followed her, subdued in the presence of the King. The doors swung shut silently as they departed. The King turned to Brak and his smile faded. They were making plans to move north, to protect their border from the Kariens. I made a rather dramatic appearance in Krakandar and convinced Damin Wolfblade to form an alliance with them. It's your one fault. And what news of the Kariens? What is Hablet doing? It is unlike him to let such momentous events take shape without him trying to turn it to his advantage. He sent one of his daughters to meet with Lernen Wolfblade, but I don't know that anything came of it.
It's hard to tell with Hablet. He makes and breaks treaties as if they were piecrusts. You should think about sending someone to his court, now that the word is out that the Harshini still live. The High Arrion has promised me that the Sorcerer's Collective will protect our people in Greenharbour, but we are not revered in the manner we once were. Our seclusion appears to have left us unprepared for the human world. Her assistance will come with a price, I suspect. Besides, Fardohnya is too close to Karien. I would not put it past Hablet to see some advantage in dealing with the Kariens, and I would not willingly give him a hostage.
He studied it for a long moment before he spoke again.
Another part of me fears what your appearance heralds. When he did, he completely changed the subject. No, even more than that, Death had her by the hand and was leading her away. Cheltaran healed her wounds, but Death does not like to be cheated, particularlyby the God of Healing. They are having something of a Where does that leave R'shiel? Death holds one hand, Cheltaran the other. But now that you are here, we should be able to resolve the conflict. Thanks for the vote of confidence, your Majesty, but I think you vastly overrate my powers of persuasion.
A compromise of sorts has been worked out to solve the problem. Unfortunately, none of us is capable of carrying it out.
