YOU’VE GOT TO HAVE FAYTHE…

The unscrupulous new Council chair has charged Jace, Marc, and me with trespassing, kidnapping, murder, and treason. Yeah, we’ve been busy. But now it’s time to take justice into our own hands. We must avenge my brother’s death and carve out the rot at the heart of the Council.

It’s not going to be easy, and loss seems unavoidable, but I have promised to protect my Pride, no matter what. With a target on my back and Marc at my side, I’m heading for a final showdown that can—that will—change everything forever.

Hát elérkezett ez a perc is… elengedlek, Faythe, járd tovább az utadat nélkülem. Felnőttél, legalábbis idősebb lettél, mint amikor megismertelek. Hogy okosabb és bölcsebb-e… nos, azt ítéljék meg mások. Én túl közel voltam hozzád és túl sokáig.
Veled keltem, veled aludtam – emlékszel? egyszer még a bőrödbe is bújtam álmomban. Nagymacskának lenni tényleg fantasztikus élmény.

Köszönöm, hogy általad megismerhettem a falkád tagjait, a családodat, barátaidat és üzletfeleidet. (Főleg apádat *.* , de hát ezt úgyis tudod, mondtam elégszer.) Köszönöm az izgalmakat – néha kicsit sok volt a gore, de nem panaszkodok, mert volt, hogy átestél a ló túloldalára, én meg csak fogtam a fejemet (sok olvasóval együtt, megsúgom). Külön köszönöm Elias Keller barátságát, ha Montanában járok, feltétlenül bekopogok hozzá.

Vigyázzatok magatokra és egymásra úgy is, hogy nem figyelünk benneteket. Éljetek boldogan.

Befejeztem, vége, de még lehetett volna folytatni, olyan kíváncsi lennék még rájuk. Tragédiák, drámák kétségbeesēs mindenben. Közel volt a siráshatár, a szíved összetörik neked is a történések súlya alatt. Hiányzik…

Annak ellenére – vagy pont azért? –, hogy ez volt a befejező kötet, ez volt a legkiszámíthatóbb. Ettől függetlenül szívesen olvastam, és drukkoltam akiknek kellett, meg fújoltam ha a gonoszok léptek színre. Viszont a szerelmi háromszög lezárása egy nagy nulla volt, meglepődtem, hogy ennyi dráma után hogy lehet ilyen minimálisra venni a végét. Alapvetően tetszett a sorozat, feldobta a záróvizsgára tanulást :) Ja, és az volt még borzasztó vicces az egész sorozatban, hogy csomó olyan dolog történt, ami eddig még soha: találkoztak más alakváltókkal, Faythe az első női enforcer, Kaci az első embertől született vérmacska, stb. Nyilván enélkül nem lenne izgalmas a dolog, csak kicsit sok a jóból :)

My father looked stunned, and it actually took him a moment to recover from my discourse on new love. “And you still love Marc?”
“More than I can even explain. He’s my rock—strong and steady, and ready for anything. He knows what I need before I know it, and he pushes me to work harder, and look deeper, and be better. He challenges me, and infuriates me, and he lights me on fire, deep in my soul. And he has never, ever let me down. Sometimes it feels like he’s the only thing keeping my
heart beating. I love him so much that it feels like I’m dying a little bit every day that he won’t smile at me. Or touch me. Not even a hug. He keeps this distance between us now. And Jace has to do the same, because they have this weird, fragile truce that isn’t quite working, but I know better than to make them break. But this truce is going to break me.

– You’re a bitch.
– Yeah, I’m thinking of having that put on some business cards.

A minute later, Jace landed where I’d fallen, and I helped him up.
“You okay?”
“Hell, no.” He actually wobbled on his feet and clung to me, his face whiter than a sun-bleached Texas sidewalk. “There’s a reason cats don’t have wings.”
“Yeah, but at least we always land on our feet.”
“Then why did I land on my ass?

“I don’t want to love him—this would be so much simpler if I didn’t. But I do.
He’s funny, and passionate, and strong, and he believes in me more than I even believe in myself. When he looks at me, I feel like I could take on the whole world and come out standing tall. I like myself better when I’m with him, because of how he sees me. He makes me feel beautiful and powerful, like I’m the most important thing in the world, and I don’t know how to walk away from that. I don’t know how to walk away from him.”

We need you to do some reconnaissance. A simple flyby over our ranch. All you have to do is count the cars and tell us how many men you see hanging around the property.”

Kai shook his head without a moment’s hesitation. “Not even if you fed me your firstborn, still wet and screaming.”

I blinked, but for a long moment, his words made no sense. Not the refusal. The part about cannibalizing my theoretical future child. “Well, isn’t that…gruesome? Who are you, Rumpelstiltskin?”

Kai frowned, as if I made no sense to him. “No thunderbird would claim a name so senselessly flamboyant.

Sorry doesn’t mean anything! Not when you’re still with him. It’s not just that you cheated—it’s that he’s still here, and you’re still with him. It just goes on and on, and it hurts every single time I see you with him. I hate it that he makes you smile, and that there’s nothing I can do to stop this. I can’t think straight, and everything hurts, and nothing makes sense anymore. You’re shredding my heart with one hand and stroking his ego with the other. And it’s killing me, Faythe. You’re killing me. And it’s only going to get worse, now that everyone knows.

Can I see it?"
He blinked, still scowling, „See what?”
„Your scar.” His expression darkened like a sudden eclipse and I let my gaze grow cold. "You want to hear me scream? Give it your best shot. But until then, every time you take off your shirt, you may as well be handing out my business card. I shoved my blade deep inside you and loved every single inch of it. When I can't sleep at night, the memory of you screaming like a little bitch is my lullaby. And everybody knows exactly what that scar means- that you got your ass handed to you by a little girl. Again.

I give it a fifty-fifty chance of total failure. If Kai refuses to repay a debt he legitimately owes, he'll be dishonoured in front of his entire Flight. Thunderbirds always avenge their dead, honour their word, and pay their debts. Those seem to be the only laws they have." Based on what little time I'd spent with them.
Marc frowned. „It's the 'legitimately owes' part that worries me.”
„Thus the fifty-fifty shot of failure.” I stared up at the nest, watching for any sign of activity. „It all depends on whether or not I'm able to bullshit him into thinking he owes us.”
„The odds are always in your favour when bullshit's involved.” Jace grinned, and I couldn't help returning his smile.

Will there be enough to go around, or must we compete for our kills?"
„Unfortunately, I suspect there will be plenty, but that really depends on how many of you are willing to come.” And that's when I lost track of who was speaking. They called out from everywhere, having apparently forgotten I was even there.
„All of us!”
„We will all go…”
„It's only far…”
„Someone must stay with the children…”
„Someone must stay to hunt…”
„Then we'll draw quills. Feathers into the pile! The twenty drawn will go and fight!”

„Wait!” I had to shout to be heard. „Don't you want the details?”
Kai frowned, one of the few birds paying me any attention. „No. We want the fight, and the feast.”
„No! I said there will be no feasting! It's a war, not a fucking dinner banquet!” I threw up my hands in exasperation.

Mentioning war to a Flight of thunderbirds was evidently like dangling candy in front of a class full of children! Ruthless, deadly children…
