Chapter One – Ilyan

Third Hop

With one flare of power, I sent an attack into yet another of the Trpaslíks with my free hand, the other still holding the little man, his smile fading to nothing as one of his comrades collapsed to the ground lifelessly.
“I don’t like killing innocents,” I growled as I turned back to my captive, fully aware that the anger in my voice would make that phrase unbelievable. “Tell me where Edmund is, and I can protect you.”
The man’s smug smile faded as fear clouded his eyes, his focus intent as he weighed his options. My chest tensed in fervent possibility, hoping perhaps this one would tell me. Perhaps this one would crack.
Just as he opened his mouth an explosion erupted at our feet, rubble flying through the air around us and instead of speaking, he laughed.
“I obey only my master who saved me, who taught me what it is to be truly strong.” His voice echoed around us, loud and disjointed. “We will defeat all!”
The man screamed his last words before I let my magic flow through him, into him, ending his life with one flash of power against his heart. Quick and painless.
It was the humane way. They weren’t all Trpaslíks, after all. Many of them, like the one I had killed, were Chosen—innocents my father had poisoned with his tainted Vilỳ’s, trained, and abused to send into the city we were trapped in with the sole purpose of attacking us, destroying us.
It wasn’t their fault.
Stepping over the body, I rushed back into the battle, killing man after man as the tension in my body grew into a dangerous rage. I always had trouble controlling my temper, especially without Joclyn. Normally I had her magic to comfort me, but she was asleep. Her Drak magic pulling her under as it did every so often. I was walking a dangerous line.
