Pon meis quem trigim yars, is eegwivneut saul ed eespendneut id meist wakt in un buxianxu ed duilic laboratorium, perambhto med alambiques, retortes, alim wehrgs ed awa pustaks, mimakhend pulvers ed potions in id ziel, naiwo naken, os glehmber uper menscgwis, os triumphe wakt. Way, pos deuysyars, is desperit de aiwo arrive tei objective, de aunkehlder ia secrets nemertios. Bukghesor, is tentit myehrse sien khak experiments, sien akhir deceptions. Per chance, Potnia Nature ei pors honoct un drehmwaurmen kay chasse eysa kyehrsen idees, un daumosto spectacle om stieure ed beauteit. Exo, gvrensblixa, meteoric, traceer in id waurn sinueus ed bremlik piurnlignes. Ia repuls id temos uns deub noct ed dahr un guway aspect ibs trandafels quom ozda, apter ia schibs, vienk sekwent windheuls. Id air eet kladen med electricitat. Rlayu menacit. Mien visiter arrivit sammel quem ia presta seuyghutts, samt un perkwndvon. Eyso silhouette, un greiso skadh aureolet med luce, ei buit revelet ab keraun. Ant tod irrational, imprevisible ed inexplicable vision, Jacks muscles criesp instantan-ye. Bet yars oispensa spehnd-ye hassile un supernatural magh ei hieb noroc-ye preparet ad admitte id rhayr mukhtmel, ne aun baysa, bet aun se forprehpe. In id retrohfto temos, Jacks ment unte uno moment glohdjen recuprit sien holo luciditat. « Est un demon ! » mohn is quando, ye id second ker, id waurnpiurn aunkohlder iom mysterieuso ses qui stahsit inter iom ed id fenster. Is eet meis quem dwo meters buland ed hieb neid mensclik. Eys omsa eent baygh pior plaut, eys hanks pior angh, eys memsa pior taungh ed eys cap abnormal-ye long. Jack eet terrifiet, immobiliset ep sien foteuyl, samt anghto gurgule quan is demon declarit med un rauk, staur ed mieltswadh voc : Dah mi id Oiv os Feerie, Jack Madrygal. Id Oiv os Fe... os Fe...

Ye tod ker, neid dwoi eet permiss : leit de un wehlen ! Quo hieb ka effect dahe ad Jack kam un druv bich-cutt.

Dah mi id Oiv os Feerie ! hul is demon. Ye mien oumer, jawieb Jack, ne bayt mohrt yel ne bayt paur.

Id situation eet desperat quan is demon reprohp ant iom, medsu ia flammes. Eys lige eet tod os un swamen, dighen ex id loid om stieure ed crueltat. Ed is eet alnos marloub, menxu eys okwi eent kam dwo geuls qua strohl kye Jack un badkhoua spect. Ye id senst ker, Jack Madrygal, dah mi id Oiv os Feeria ! Gwahte bei Diabel ! antwohrd Jack siuk-ye, unte un brusko grassabadfall, convicen od so haydcreature, sei is habiet ghohden, habiet ja klohpten eys maal dind nicen iom aun kunges. It estu, iey tun is demon. Bet i miens te retrehfsient, Jack Madrygal. Ed te duxient ad me, do Myehrsen Castell quer io tib reserve un abad om payttens. Inkaptu id chasse !

Stayg, un voln os suffoqueihnd gvrens uperfiell Jack. Ei etilikwit tik spehe... Hol kwohk lusen quan un nov miracle tyohc. Ye id critic moment kun is vahsit ses brans gwiv, id Oiv os Feerie gwohm ad khalasse iom. Iter, is khiss tod fabuleus energia lahe do eys corpos.

Fauran, unien in un perfect symbiose, is ed id Oiv os Feerie bihr tel creature : el Salamander im prest brukhs, kabil om gwive in piurn ed tehre un flammen ocean. It, sub id forme os uno smulk sword amphibia streipoik med gehlba glois, is likwit sien baytel, skapend gnebhst-ye ids collapse. Dind, yant is sielg id glest, is emsit tsay mensclik forme kay realise, confus, staunend, od eysa surprises ne eent khatem. Tod landspect is aunstohg med id luce ios brand os sien chateau, eys vesters, id eins quod hiengit kata eys flank in un puyku kardkasch, tod rucksacko quod vyig ep eys omsa rebiht nert ed plaut...

Is ghieb stayg od eysschi magic allieit se hieb transformet ! Is khiek vide id, ni touche id, bet is khiss ids presence. Per sem kiudos os magia, id hieb emen id forme uns immaterial entitat quod vulbh iom ed quantum is bohr ep se, kam un dwoter cuit. Kaurndo de antwehrde ibs questions qua hajoumeer eys ment, is decis chehxe sieno mysterieuso schowbey. Is vohs un saltamarka ed un pantalon ex albh drap. Eys peds eent uwt med lietern bauts. Un weur ghehrdel rig eys lendv. Id tohl, in un kardkasch ex sword ed glat metall... Quan eys hand siz id pomel ios eins quod hiengit kata eys flank, is oispruv un pondos om securitat ed stieure. Tod stragno sensationo dahsit eysi brakh id courage os trage ex id kardkasch un weben uns daumost beauteit, makhen ex un stal uns extraordinar purtat. “Est un chefdover !” mohn is, staunend de sien ilm om ghesore ed renkardkasche tod miech

Id gourde pohld med un scharab samt sukerodor. Id scattule mathmounit un rund jemmel vulbhen in un altiet serviet. In id lietern beurs, io trohv dwodem oyra prect ye id effigie uns gwen samt id chol kincto med un laurcron. Ex id lietern cylinder, is salgihsit uno map quod mers eys mento do un aungrund os perplexitat. Yeji tod map, ed ia stars in un waurn quer is retrohv neid iom familiar figures os sieno gnahmund, id Oiv os Feerie hieb transporten iom do uno negnoht mund : id mund Thule. Sub id schock tos revelation, is siz neglegence-ye id senst iom objects in mien fangh : id smulk oval specule ex metall, perambhto med un swordo fraum ed longeriht med un argwrnten hamand. Bet id inikas os eys lige mien tik unte oin instant ep id poliht surface. Ye ids place prohp taiper tod unios maturat wir samt energic traits quos long ruoss kays kwohk likes in id wind. “Yemric Deneb !” mohn Jack, hayran, recogneihnd-ye iom wir qui ei hieb pohrnt id Oiv os Feerie. Som noroc’ de vide te gwiv Jack, iey is med un voco quod kwohk muzlim ed piern ad senter. Vahte yu mi sayge...

Stayg, tyohc un wakya quod interrup Jacks interrogation. Ant eys okwi, id specule kwohk se embrandes. Kam praess ab id piurn, id kwiter os Yemric Deneb disprohp. Eys voc, quod kwohk ad Jack dar distanter, bihsit rauk ed strident kun id nabahsit : Iom Centligen Wir, Jack... Emrod Forest... Trehv iom Centligen Wir.

Unte longa minutes, Jack stahsit still, kam petrifien. Per quod kyudos hieb is rebiht yun ? Per quod kyudos hieb is ghohden se transforme do Salamander, dind bihe transporten con quo etilikw ex eys baytel do uno negnohno mund ? Quetos eys vesters, eys eins, eys rucksack ed ia objects is hieb salgihn tetos ? Quod hieb wakyet ad Yemric Deneb menxu is wohkwit Jack med id specule ? Okwivid-ye, ne eet un hasard sei so wir hieb iom faungmoenen ghes, sub id pretexte os ei pehrne oik rar petras. Is wois, aundwoi, is ei betrus tod Oiv os Feerie un haydcreature hiebskwit. Ed Jack prekhiss un desaster tyehciet sei is falliet do id fangh tos demon pre trehvus iom Centligen Wir, in tod Emrod Forest quod eys map situit in id nordeust ios mund Thule. Yeji id penetrant srigos quod glohdj eyso sehrg ed ei dahsit anateina, is wohs in altitude. Tod supposition buit confirmen, quar hors serter, con ia presta solbams. Perambh Jack, bachimien, strohc un vasto dener kert ab varfs. Tod hallucinet landspecto ghohd is situe aun difficultat : yeji eys map, id Oiv os Feerie hieb transporten iom do id west ios mund os Thule in id Cordillera os Aya.

Gheslo retortes ! Habies yed ghohdt chuses un gostprimaver region, iey is sieni magic sokwi spehnd-ye... Oik secundes serter, menxu is kwiwit sien objects do sien rucksack, is nabahsit : Bariem, oin est sure : sei ghehds tyices miracles, tu ne bahs.

Kam Jack hieb suppost, un supernatural magh animit ia flammes qua hieb destrugen eys baytel. Eys pustaks, eys rar petras, eys precieus metalls, id material os eys alchemiste atelier.... Ex eys long sohkwo po id Yuwent Alixire, etilikwit tik bur. Ant tod desolant spectacle, is ghieb is hieb tuntos ka khiterst peind un creature samt terrifienda maghs. “Querkwe gwahsies, i miens te retrehfsient. Inkaptu id chasse !” mohn Jack remehmend-ye de id senst wekwos ios demon ed intrigen ab id bfuxiong phenomen quod gnahsit ant eys okwi : minter quem dec meters dalg ud iom, bur lud sub id effect os un swehrbhend wind. Id skip uno meis quem dwo meters bulando stolb ye un ajib syrat. “Id chasse est ghyanen !” mohn Jack, starnd ei burstolb quetos sielg taiper un petracoloss quel stohmb kyom, samt regen brakhs ed tuicho spect. Stayg, per id vol ios Oiv os Feerie, Jacks corpos metamorphosit-se. Is crohsc, crohsc... hina bihe un Gigant ! Ithan transformet, is habiet facil-ye ghohdt edde sien soup ep id cap siens duschmans. Is eet taiper meis quem tri meters buland ed eys eins hiebit bihn un doublekhar pelk, proportionen eysi mege. Nespekent to, el Golem nastohb kyom, kam un zombie. Jack emsit tsay menscforme kun is gvohn sien peind. “Est kyudost !” mohn is, abstauniht, retrehvend-ye sien corpos ed sien schowbey kam eent pre id boi.

Ant eys sassar okwi, id nayv al Golem lent-ye forduilit. Entrim, id bur ios stolb quetos el hieb salgen buir skedhen ab id wind. Jack vahsit disvolge ud tod fascinant spectacle quan un firtina accelerit id desagregation ios petra. Unte oik secundes, id spolye os eys duschman disparih. Tun, Jack dyohrc, in id preciso stet quer dar wohs id torso os eys peind oin instant prever... un enorm diamant ! Ghes, is veut alchemiste is eet ne habiet kungen de masrafe un bayga kay kurihnes un jauhar uns talg rartat. Bet hoyd, in tod negnoht mund, is distrus un beauteit quodghi ghehdiet ses diabolic. Nastraj, einsghesor, is kung. Quod ghehdiet is kwehre med un diamant quos purtat hieb esen mukhtmel-ye stohrken ab ia malefices uns demon kay gehne un gargscreature ? Neid, sonst incurre un inutil risk, iey Jack diswehrtend-ye sien spect ud id bleigos os un gemme de quod is suppos id tuntos xihsit un diabolic aura. Still wedor hat deub grunds. Itak, is likwit ia ruines os sien chateau. Pos six hors os un spreuvend ghang, Jack dohlg recognihes od eyso situation eet pau brilliant. Her, in id Ok os Grizim, inter ia varfs ios Cordillera os Aya, id sol eet achiz os warme un ardh fifirschmen ab un glehdjic wind. Is oisrigehsit, eys vesters eent covohrt med duil ed is eet aundwoi is saul gwiv leuks perambh, kweter animal au vegetal. Asimatend ex sien chateau, is hieb trohct eustworts. Ceter cheus habiet est absurd. Nordi kam sudi lud aunupergumt ghyors. Westtro... is habiet venturen do un region lyehgend exter sieno map ios mund Thule. Isghi hieb hol naturelika decis nake Trogen Passe, spehnd-ye ghehde tetro pre noctgumt. Bet is taiper wois od is khakiet. Vasto dener, id Ok os Grizim mathmounit meis crevasses quem eent kaysdrighs ep eys cap. Dwis hieb is ja dohlgen gires, unte plur kilometers, pior-ye plaut spalts ob ia khiek ses jampt we uperskact. Quodkwe is kwehriet, nibo ptergs crehscient in eys regv pre dienend, is dehlgiet upernocte dworis. Seddend ep un perwnt, Jack salgihsit ex sien sack id jersten scattule in quod wohs eyso jemmel. “Oin est sure ! Sei sollo mehre in id Ok os Grizim, to ne sessiet sigwra ob indigestion”, mohn is ponend-ye id jemmel nieb se, ep id altien serviet. Is hunghrit kam un wolf. Yed, is vahsit dehlge beghsihes-se, rationire wed ed pieut eger is tehrbit ghange unte plur diens in tod srig desert quod id Ok os Grizim eet. Ye tod ker, is contentiet-se med oin tert ios jemmel ed tri slungs wed.

Jack giu conscient-ye id senst bukat os sien jemmel quan... Eet is victim uns hallucination ? « Sigwra ne ! » mohn is ponend-ye uter genu ed sien hands ghomtro. Ia scussa qua hieb wipiht id perwnt ep quod is hieb sess kay obedde, ed ta eys finghers detexeer taiper, ne eent creen ab eys imagination. Id ardh movit ! Muzlimye, bet kafi kay incite iom ad prekaure : mae venture meis quem cent meters prosch uno miero crevasse. Kad is leusiet it precieus wakt, bet to eet semper seller quem falle tetro. Oik hors serter, ye fayront, id druna iom wakyas dahsit raison eysi tadbir. Ye respectable distance, is gwahsit engwn uno minst-ye penkgim meters weur spalt quan, samt un enorm blosk, un nov scuss, tem imprevisible quem brutal, distulit iom ed volvih iom. Unte un dakika quod kwohk dure unte un abad, ardh lik med eys corpos kam un storm se zalisst med id plott. Dind id gischien finih, tem brusk-ye quem id se hieb slurn. Jack ne eet vurnen, sontern rauk-ye scutten. Also decisit is upernocte. Is eddskwit id reste os sien jemmel bet tod gischien hieb leusihn iom eys appetitt. Is neter hungher ni pohskwit, sontern tik emskwit un suastahalen rahat. Sei is habiet dohlcto kwites med oin werd id noct is hieb just gwiwt in id Ok os Grizim, Jack habiet saygen aun kunges od id hieb esen : “Glehdjic !” Eet ver od ye quarmil meters altitude, in tod arid region, kun vesper eegwehmt, temperature eepehdt brutal-ye pro quel, kam Jack, ee-safert aun aydsmum ed tem legv-ye dun. Is pior pieur neti khisses id senst phalang sienen finghern kun is gehriet. Itak hieb is khaliban upernox apter un perwnt just kafi plaut kay schalasche iom ud id wind, annmend-ye do sien kwahnd ghesors ed stahnd-ye ub kay gvehmbe. Biedanst-ye, todeghern, id sol ne transbieur ia nebhs. In id livid waurn, agluvolns schiieur uper id cordillera os Aya, veulbhend ia hogst varfs. “Neid niet mi ses spart !” rughiet Jack disnodend-ye ia wangwls os sien serviet kay...

Ajaban ! iey is, staunend. Ghes vesper, eent ne meis quem dwo terts jemmel in eyso serviet. Is eet yakin. Yedmen, hoyd, is id retrohv hol. Id de gourde kwohk ses tem plen quem perdini, pre is hiebit poht sien tri slungs wed. Ab tod dien, sei tod miracle retyehciet, is esiet minst-ye sure de edde ed pohe sat. Is ess med megil bukats sien jemmel kun tanghu sneigvflockens bifiell. Eys chifan hieb ei redaht force, bet is vahsit dehlge ghange sei is ne frohsskwit still. Ye aghyernend, id sneigvfall buit tayt ab un storm uns ajib gvalt. Stohnter ed blixa hamrahr ia grandwnkaghels qua tohr taiper id dusken dien ed Jack dohlg sammel sien hol gwis ed quanto courage ei etiliwit kay resiste id glehdjic wind quod bich cruel-ye eys lige ed se infiltrit lughav-ye subter eys vesters. Parmadht, kreuselnd ed clackeihndo sien dents, is ghiengit kam un blindo neudend-ye sien eins kay sonde id plor ja covohrno med un teug albho lyegher. Tod deforce ghang exhieus iom dar meis ob id kleitu eelileudneut sub eys peds pon dwo wassime hors. Is kohns lakin is ne sollit ses baygh dalg ud Trogen Passe quer, samt lyt nassib, is trehviet un wirtic schalasch. Id temperature os Jacks corpos sohnk dangereus-ye quan is bad hassilit ud sieno magic sokwi un precieus hehlp. Unte un cort moment, is vis kweiter-ye id perambhend mund. Ta oik secunders kweitert ei permiss ghabe od, aun insafus to, is hieb entret Trogen Passe, un centen metern weur dervente. Eti, is wois taiper od levter quem is, nordtro, id brenk ed glehdjicet flank tos canyon eet beskawt med innumerable cavitats. Oik minutes serter, einsghesor, is uperghieng sub id akmen uns temost grotte. Jack scrutit tod endergumt, quan, extos, un stump, cracklik blosk, insafih iom id grave perile is hieb just oiskapen : samt un terrible behngos, un avalanche nisturd ex id ghyor do Trogen Passe. Samt un bodereihnd blosk, dreibhend do sien agmo tonnes om petras, sneigv ed slamm, tod avalanche obstruxit irremediable-ye id entrat os Jacks refuge. Also, menxu is ghaws ob skapus un tragic fat, is eet brusk-ye isolet ud id extermund ed mers do id silence uns deub noct. “Uff !” kwohster is pon annmus plurs unte sieno nas. Neid suspect odor flottit in id air. Isghi ne wohs in id laz uns gver. Tod constat sakwnih Jack, bet id ne antwohrd ei beangstend question quod aziyiet eys ment : “Som io prisoner tos grotte ?” Oik minutes serter, is ann un second rehmenkwester. Kraghend-ye quanttro, poskwo neudend-ye sien eins kam un blind follosiet sien canna, is hieb aunstohgen eyso schalasch ne eet un cluden rewos, sontern uno smulk balma prolonget med un kayurt kafi weur kay permitte id perigumt uns mensc. Is wois eyso surviven depens taiper quo is trehviet ye id budo tos kayurt. Bet id safer quod hieb duct iom ex ia ruines os eyso chateau do tod grotte os Trogen Passe hieb kaurd-ye spruven ed, quayque ei etilkwit kafi energia kay resiste id srigos quod regnit in id temos ios Bagrach, is naiw iskwit venture dalger samt tuicho stomak.

Is segit uter dwidel ex id, dind kwiwit kaur-ye id reste pre edde, lent-ye peitend-ye myehrse sien gvolic lipps, bidohrn ab srigos. Pos id chifan, Jack stahskwit ub bet cricit ob gvol. Ex persnas do doiks, eys peds atroce-ye kwehndihr iom. Is sess iter ed giowit lent-ye sien bauts. Bila luce, med sien hands examinit is taiper sien lumatayt peds. Eys doiks ne eent frohsen, bet, med id

In id Bagrach, hol prokwem id grotte quer te ho trohft ghes, exhaust ed persrigen, antwohrd un baritonlik voc.

Keihnd ep uter flank, Jack ambhglaz id balm os sien salvor. Okwivid-ye, id presence os Aardvark in tod grotte ne eet due hasard. Ambi uno mier twaco quod perbohrg id entrat uns tunnel, Jack dyohrc un kowp dieken ed butten, un decen om mier sacks ex sukno, seils, dwo weur lopats ed tant cazmas. Is deduxit od eys mejban bug sigwra id kasseb prospector. Dind, spehcend-ye ub kay kehnse id hog ios akmen, Jack ghieb is hieb chusen tod stet kay installe ter sien waun. Lodhseid uper id ogwn ed tri wassime meters hoger quem tod, id dum enghulf do un tarak ios ghianshiek.

Rassuren ab id presence ios Eins os Feerie ed os eys rucksack pod sien cubh, Jack smieg ia delicate affluts ios zam os sien salvor. Vehsend un pell, armet med un plaut isern meugh ed uno mier guar, Jack gwohm prosch id smulko kattil hangen uper id ogwn. “Est chald ed suaodet”, mohn is sib servend-ye dwo gaos alnos plena med un teug soup. Is pohsit med lytil slungs id preusend liquid ed sammel mohnyit sombreye. Is ne bedwoyit unte sem instanto de Aardvarks dabronia bet.... Sereniht, sat, Jack decis renarce. Bet Aardvarks honara snarcens ei stabheer swohpye. Id ogwn eet ne meis quem un geulenlict kun Jack biwohn brunges id swehpen siens mejban. Suppose ghi is eet prospector, is sollit sigwra possedde oik

Bet id risk os bihe surpriden, id mege os eys trident... “Ho un dulg dia iom”, mohn Jack decidend-ye intizare id probeuden siens mejban pre iom sprehge quod mathmouneer eysa sklads.

Oik minutes serter, Jack neti mohn de id firasat os eys mejban, de eys reptil cap seht ep uno mensccorpos, de eys trigwisti ghesors, de eys oinschtuk vester quer is ne vis id minsto trace os syumen, de id oistauneihnd uriende is bevis quan is movit.

Aurnd-ye iom attentive-ye, Jack aunstohg is eet insensible dia srigos, bet od is adorit id mliieke iom pells.

Quando bo inkiep id periple quod dohlg duce iens do ia muraischa os Taal, Aardvark hieb emt id wakt os prepare kaur-ye ir safer. Prest-ye, is hieb diken ad Jack quosmed, ab un decoction planten trohven in ia sreumens ios Bagrach, un paste saygen os Vorj, quod, oins id cuit hieb est ohngwt iosmed, permitt resiste diu srigos, hatta in wed, aun yed stambhes ei corpos annmes. Dind, is hieb duct Jack do un vast grotte quer ies hieb trohft Boras, petras samt phosphorescent suedsa. Oin tom petras, diehn uni klaer, hieb ei permiss makhe id equivalent uns torche os muzlim gwayder intensitat. Bad, Aardvark ei hieb daht un ieschkefitil chakmako quod hieb ei esen schohnken xiawngja ab eyso prient Corbin, tri meters seil, dwo logules grihn ye oiter bors med Pyrgwetu, un isern cutia mathmounend sem ex tod hog-ye inflammable gwetu ed un dreun pot pleno med Paste os Vorj.

Aardvark ne hieb lught ad Jack, id Bagrach neti hieb secrets pro iom. In id labyrinth om kayurts, grottes, natural camins tem angha quem is alchemiste hieb meis quem oins redwoin remane aulbohndto ter, eys guide hieb naiwo kungen ed ies ne hieb incontret id minsto danger. Jack hieb swohpto dwodems pon sien asimat ex eys balma, uct piskes el stromb, aunstohcto quosmed nudes sien seil kam un lasso, trohft un Anathpetra ed treht sien olans ed genus protiev id ghianshieko quan eys guide ei sieyg med sien deub ed swadh voc : Jack Madrygal, mien prient, vahms eme noster senst chifan com.

Ye tod instant, is alchemiste spruv uno mixt khisses om joy ed aytan. Weidwos, is ghaws de retrehve dworis ed luce. Her, in id Bagrach, is hieb id pondos eys corpos hieb veutascen unte decen yaren.

In sien chateau, in sien laboratorium os alchemiste, is hieb myohrst quo ghohd ses prientia. Bad, is addih sieni schowbey ia senst presents os Aardvark : tursto stromb, un cucinkniv, un guar ed un smulko kattil. Jacks pawiropekus eysi guide hieb esen kerddehrnd. Is se hieb druve-ye attachet tei creature qui, ep eyso gnahsa planete, habiet ghohden ghehlde ka is hered im presten dinosaurs. Eysghi kerd aghnuit, bet is sigwra ne hieb id wakt os sehnke do aytan. Pre hatta eys asimat ex id balma quer is hieb incontren iom, Aardvark hieb warnen iom contra ia dangers iom muraischen os Taal. Is hieb ei sayct od i Ghomens, prospectors au plundrers, naiwo gwohm do tod part ios mund Thule. Is hieb iom kathalika manthihn od i Nekwts vergihr venture do ia balmas ed kayurts qua lyohg engwn id jauzaeko quer, sekwent iom, “swohbh un odor os mohrt.” Tod thamf lambh Jacks nas ed gurgule menxu is wieust ex un kayurto do un vast ed hogo grotte ghyanen extro med un plaut perigumt. Trans tod ghyahsa, is vis ia stars in un aunnebh waurn ed imaginit facil-ye, yeji id cacophonia quod agress eys aurtavans pos un tem long safer in un silent mund, id bryndo dwaschaw im noctbiesten qui gohn tod keapay concert om kwaxa, strids ed torubowa. Warnen, prudent, Jack decisit skehpte id octent. Albatta, is iskwit linkwes meist oku id Bagrach, is xihsit un Borapetra kay se beluces ed quanto tohrpt in sien rucksacko kay daghe un torche, bet id prospect unios noctghang do un okwivid-ye hostil nature nravih iom pau. Lakin, is ne resistit id desire os woide kam quod kwohk id ambient is vahsit solle drehde cras. Isghi stohmb circumspect ep un subbrun ed sleubric swol quos kleitu lud mliakye extro quando... uno massive gastalt wierdhit stayg ant id waurn ! Jack se preparit ad drehde tel stayg apparition quan id fabuleus energia os eys magic sokwi lahsit eys corpos. Is bihsit tun un Ibis, tel av i weikers os Uber Misro hiebeer promotem do iser animal. Is eet tem buland quem eys cap, ye id bud uns immense coll, quasi touchit id akmen ios grotte. It metamorphosen, is neti hieb id minsto dwoi de id buhsa’l animal quel, pre stahe still, petrifien ob terror, klieupit perodh kyom kwaxend-ye. “Est un Gigant Batrac !” mohn is ghangend-ye med sien long aredjambs.

Jack ne tem suavis quem in diewo, bet kafi kay kwinwes id Borapetra do sien rucksacko quetos is salgihsit un torche is daghiet eger... “Ajaban !” mohn is aunstehgend-ye ia innumerable blets samt teug rudh hat qua clostreer ep ia druraudhs.

Ye proscher ia jauzaeks, ye rarer id vegetation ed ia mighelskaterts qua strohc in id wind ne hieb stopen bihe teuger. Mox, is neti vidiet ia exotic ed stragna colors iom muraischa os Taal, ia subalbh baltas, ia cobaltblou pouls plehna med stagnant wedor, lizden med argwrntic neds ed sword koviles, ia anthracitegreis gamas samt subglend okwi, id inikas iom spalvs om glend ed ultramarin iom slancen corpsen im libells, i sword mosquitts ed i rudh matils. Pos minter quem oin, maghses dwo hors, is ghangiet in un teug nebule ep un swombhic plor quer eys bauts ja dub leurnd-ye taungh acriodor gazburbules. Tod prospect nravih iom pau, bet is dohlgit gwahe perodh-ye dyeind-ye od, contrar-ye ad quo is redwoyit, is ne hieb incontren animal os abnormal mege pon is hieb salgen id Bagrach. Quayt wakt hieb dohnt pon Jack hieb trohdt id meln ardh iom muraischen os Taal ? Quosmed habiet is ghohdt woide to ? Perambht kam is eet ab uno nebule taiper tem tegu quem is ne vis meis quem tri stieups dalgtro, is siegv tik sigwra eet dar diewo, od id Borapetra hieb ei est inutil in tod duman ed od habiet daughto ka neid daghe sien torche. Is eet strak ob se forscrute ad paurske netrehvim pords, subihes ia stehngens uns dwaschaw em vorace mosquitts, ghange in un glawgv wed, ep un plor pehldend med kapans, howkscheces ed kalctraps. Is eemimehnt sombre-ye quan un piern blosk attraxit eys attention. Is akowsicit... Nespekent id kwaxenconcert ed id drohna im insects, ei kwohk aure stragna strids, baygh pior longa kay ses ta ordinaren serpents. “Quod tar ghehdt ses to ?” dieum is peitend-ye sien chienjwakowo quando, lambht af horror, is ghieb to gwohm kyom, meg oku ed semper honarer. Oct pods kay stehme uno mier corpos os brun reptil marct med gehlba glois, un long ed staur ghyanu, un dingv stridend inter omoedda dents, okwi de qua is woisit ia xihr un terrifiento magh... Id forme sub quod id Oiv os Feerie hieb iom just-ye transformen ei sieyg pelu de id perile quod menacit iom. Is eet un Basiliskos, un legendaro creature quei i awi os Jacks mundo tribuer id magh os nices med sien saul spect. Est un Hydra ! rughiet is quan, surregend ex id nebule, prohp id enorm corpos unios mustring septcap reptil quel stahsit still tik oik meters ud iom.

Oins meis hieb id Oiv os Feerie kaur-ye chusen id forme sub quod Jack vahsit drehde un Hydra alnos identic tal quel, sekwent un awo legend os eys Terra, hieb esen vicen in id bund iom muraischen os Lerna ab un pwoldiv ios mythologia, Herakleus, ed eys sokwi Iolas. Sei tod basmo hieb un budmen os vertat, eet mer-ye impossible wighes un Hydra sei anghen ne xih un tomost weben ed un torche. Dwoghi caps regnahr ep id zanchoun coll al reptil sei id ne eet fauran aydhen. Bet, Bihn Basiliskos, is ne kieur de tod danger eysghi okwi ghohd nices ! Pos veurnus Jack, el Hydra, conscientis de id perile quod menacit iam, brusk-ye parvols pre fuges, sehlkend apter se ia tri caps is Basilisko hieb gvohnen. Is bicurs apter el, bet el emsit tsay menscforme oik secundes serter. El Hydra eet ja dalgi quan, per ment, is dienk sieno magic sokwi. Hoyd, in tod fetid jauzaek, id magia ios Oiv os Feerie hieb ei permiss tyices un authentic exploit, un kyudos neren wirtic de entre legend. Tri diens hieb dohnt pon Jack hieb likwt id Bagrach quan, ye fayront, is bad sielg id nebule ed ia muraischa os Taal. “Mien eins po un crovat ed un chald balnia !” sohgn is spehcend sien slammpoik vesters, ed sammel baygh suawoidend eys wogv ne tyehciet pre diu. Ye dalger Jack ud ia muraischa, ye niter id sol in id occident. Apter iom, uper id cordillera os Aya, weur pemb ed golden streis bier taiper un aunnebh waurn. Attentive de ia avkans ed florenrayhas, is dyisit un werlik nature. Ant iom, kye Emrod Forest, strohc ye vidleus un glendia tapit comspers de blou gencians, lils ed tulpans. Tod immens reuydil land wundel kam id mar ye un stormdien sub id influence unios nordeusttos gvaltic wind. Sien bust bughen, gras tiel sien bemerns, is ghieng lent-ye.

Ia fetid odors iom muraischen os Taal eent ne meis quem un khak mehmen ed is ne hieb dyohrcen neid negnoht animal spece quan id ptercto genos ei mohld id presence uns danger. Apter iom, decen meters dalg, tri avs abpluk samt un crieconcert plabend-ye id air med ir ptergs. Is ghieb quo hieb dekhschaten i parindas volgend-ye : is dyohrc id cap al animal quel vahsit surprindes iom ed se preparit ad skande ep iom, un Tigher samt saberdents !

Jack udkardkieschit sien eins, parat ad defende dorgv-ye sien gwit protie tel simbva dispareihneut ex sien gnahmund pon millions yaren, quan id Oiv os Feerie metamorphosit iom. Fauran, is bihsit...

Eys kaphs hihr elso spina menxu is clih sien bust perodh kay ei bires un einscutt. Sub id waldh os panique, el gigant simbva remien unte un instant aun reage. Jack hieb iom vurnt plurs quan, med un salutor mov, el kamyieb se place exterschaecheing eysen repetihn cutts, pre mwaungsoue aun sprehge meis. El hieb disprohpen pon oik secundes do ia koviles ios plain os Falmor quan is emsit tsay menscforme.

Is eet tun norocto de aunstehge un nov landspect, un sorte os transition inter id immensitat ios plain os Falmor ed id vast Emrod forest. Bet oins ant id tumultueus wedor ios Njin, eys optimiste vanicit unte oin schtoss. Dalg ud giughine iom, id vido tos weur fluv samt stauro sreht uperkwohlm iom. In ids wedor tumen ab id tahsa iom sneigven ios cordillera os Aya, id Njin dribh un gehlbo limon quod ei stabh kehnse id dube os ids alv. Eti, ep eys gon, id fluv hieb dohlven id plain ed id ouper mersit sehnkseid-ye do id meln wed, unte tri wassime meters hoge, menxu, ep alter gon, id ouper wundel moll-ye. Sekwent ia deikens os eys map, is solliet normal-ye trehve un pord ghyorworts, ye quar au penk diens ghang dalg. “Un long detour...” mohn is, sehgner, considerend-ye od eys mukam in id Bagrach, ia muraischa os Taal ed id plain os Falmor hieb iom sigwra bohrct iom unte un wassime khvil ud i demoniakens creatures lancen ad persehkwe iom. Yed, id Cyclopen pord, sei id eet id saul point os passage ios Njin in tod saison, esiet id ideal stet pro un embusk.

Unte oin instant, dank id supernatural energia ios Oiv os Feerie, is bihsit un dryade, una nymphe protectrice iom foresten, un legendara creature beghaben med un fantastic magh : med un legvo kadam, retro, oin instant pre is animal uperfiell iom, Jack entrit id dru pod quod is obeddskwit. Credeihnd volvihes iom, is Gigant Aper percuss frontal-ye eys providencial schalasch. Sure od so furieus biesto se hieb niterplact au nict, is decis, oik secundes serter, salge id dru kay eme tsay menscforme.

Jack rebihsit mensc yant is sielg id dru, unte id gon witer quem tod is hieb entret id. Oik secundes serter, is aunstohg ia brohct eibers ed swincap, resultat ios muss schock. Neid gvol ? sprohg un Ghomen wir.

Agend ob instinct, Jack trohp un sokspecto kyi negnohts qui sielg nun id forest, oika stieups ex id tegut quer is Gigant Aper hiebit prohpen. Eent quar : tri Ghomens ed... un urx ! Unte un instant, is dieum an toy Ghomens hieb prispohct eys metamorphose do dryade. Dind is considerit od nel-ye. Ies hieb arrivet pior sert kay vide iom entre id dru quetos is hieb salso tsay, ocolo, kay rebihe strax mensc. Leito wal, antwohrd Jack, rassuret ab id dabron attitude siens contolker. Gohd ghi, nabahsit is tehrnd-ye Ambryn strad, fauran sohkwn ab id reste ios trupp. Traquems tom mon pon octent. Ho hiht iom todeghern, bet tik vurnt.

Id vehsmen ed id schowbey iom tri Ghomens mehnih Jack eent sayads. Quanti vohs ein ghiton, bruks ed bauts ex twac, ein cappa khastart med pell, un tagargik, un kalhorn, un khandjar, un lonc ed un kulchan. Qui hieb wohkwn Jack eet slanc, kam uter ex dwo alter Ghomens qui, yeji id samkwehkia, ghohd ghi ses eys son. Is trit eet un druv coloss, payn minter straugho quem is urx is leindohrj ye id bud uns long isern zangir. Sei suaghabo, declarit Jack erght, so animal eet gvolfoll quan is me hat chargen ? Ver, jawieb is Ghomen aun kunges. Ed vos deulgo excuses. Mien aundexia habiet ghohden nices vos. Bet sagvo pardonihes me. Kamte yu apercuissot ? Ya, acquiescit Jack pos oik secundes reflexion, sakwniht ab id frienke siens contolker. Vahsim ghi obedde quando so gver me hat attaquet. In tod fall, ste mien gost. Niet ses aper in id menue tos middien, bet sei yu acceptet mane con nos tiel hovesper, vos promitto un royal dapan.

Is Ghomen smih ei regend-ye un hand quod Jack mussafahit gairn pre is kwohr ia presentations. Contrar-ye ad quo is hieb maynen, eys mejbans ne eent professional sayads, sontern saferleuds, leikars.

Is de urx, quos nam eet Oblib, is hieb bikamt Jack pon id prest contact, ye id staunos os eyso suter. In id druna ios obedd, eys mejbans hieb iskwn pauk embarassant werds. Pretendend-ye bayghe id keiwia im Experimenten Maystern os Tara, Jack hieb impressen iens akster-ye. Okwivid-ye, alchemistes inspireer un blans khisses om baysa ed respect im weikers ios mund Thule. Yed, ei hieb esen kafi linkwes leudher druna eysi natural curiositat ed se interesse ei gwit tim saferleuds kay treusihes i ed brehge iro reticence.

Quan is arrivit in vid ios refuge, Jack eet meg satisfact. Ne tik hieb is revelet neid de sien storia ni de ia sababs os sien sohkwo, sontern kathalika hieb is obtenen alya util istikhbaras. Prest, is hieb mathen is tehrbiet tri diens, ab cras aghyern, kay rallie id citad Ambryn. Dind, is hieb aunstohct od tik i Experimenten Maysters poiss entre id urb Tara. Albatta, sei is ne habiet pretenden ses member ios keiwia ios Kerdos de petras ed metalls, is habiet ghohdt iskwes meis werds dayir id mund Thule ed ids weikers. Bet is esiet mox in Ambryn quer eys interrogations trehvient sigwra ciautaung antwehrds in id hamrahsa ios Megil Druid Cù Chulainn. Eti, ye id prest ker pon eys asimat ex id Glend insule, is eekheissneut druve-ye in salvtat. Honoct, pos un epoin quod ei permittiet sigwra habe un khauris tid, is ghehdiet bad swehpe sakwn-ye. Quando Jack entrit id pwolcircule skipen ab ia quar waunwoghs ios caravan ant id refuge os Ambryn strad, is ne wois quetro spehce. Inter waurn ed ardh, ep un dauyn tens inter dwo long perches, una funambule trohcit grace-ye. Dwo meters niter, dwo kwalis, Ghomens ne bulander quem magvi, skiec mimend-ye un effrenat persehkwen. Ant id refuge, uno muschabad kwohr nodes uni seil : nodes qua vanier quan id seil slid inter eys hands. « Gleimen, kreusa ed illusion », mohn Jack, considerend-ye od gwit esiet baygh trist, in tod mund kam ep eyso gnahsa Terra, sei leikars ne existient. Serter, oins lawt ed mutavohst, menxu Com, Hic ed is magician os Yf eent besic med id preparation ios diner, is prispohc ia repetitions altern truppmembern. Sub ia aktwns, M.

Is ghiengit kye quo etilikw ex id mier koister ios predien : un geulenlict uper quod, in uno smulko kattil, chield un zam samt delicate miris.

Pro Lohises okwi, id sense os tula os Jack buit un druv divsghab. Unte un pwoldien, is hieb ucen ghange ep un dauyn samt tant aise quem un experiencen funambule. Sei trainires cadadien, ei iey Lohise, som sure bihsies un aunpar seildanser ed acrobat. Has ghabs kay bihe un grand equilibriste. Tod compliment warmt mien kerd, antwohrd Jack dankend-ye mental-ye id Oiv os Feerie ob dahvs exceptional imkans ei corpos quod buit eyso dwogimat.

Ed Lohise ei dahsit un golden ringo quod, yeji iam, ei dahiet nassib quan is tentiet parkwehre un perileus drill os tula.

Bet, dat is ne eet bad alnos rassuren, is decis perambhe-se med pelu precautions. Preter, is salgihsit id Borapetra sien rucksack. Dind is blockit id dwer neudend-ye id table ed ia dwo stuls qua stahr in id stamberg. Bad, is clus ia inner stavens ios refuge. It sect ud id extermund, ye id luce tyict ab ia phosphorescent suedsa ios Borapetra, ei etilikwit tik brunges id previdence al senstes mussafer quel hieb halt in tod loc. Dank el, is behans un aydsmo sklad ample-ye kafi kay daghe un gohd schen in id vatra os sien schalasch. Seddend ep id yesmencrovat ios refuge, Jack ess un schtuk dvan ed un carn pastiurma. Oik minutes serter, is giowit sien vesters, posit sien camiss ep id Borapetra kay krihes ids luce, dind lyohgit ghom sub sien blanquet, sien einso ye prayghest. Is eet strak, bet ia hors dohn aun is ghohd trehve swehpen. Is lyohgyit pos addeihvs aydsmo do id ogwn ye id trit ker, quan is ieur stundes id dwer os sien schalasch. Jack ! Som Lohise... Jack ! Ghyan mi ! Io te iltije !

Aurndo tod familiar voc, is ne kung : is enduit sien pantalon ed rusch khalasse sien funambule prient. Quod hat wakyet ? sprohg is, beghspace.

Eys question remien aunantwehrd. Apter id dwer, Lohise bisluct. Samt aghnuend kerd, redwoind an i leikars buir attaquen ab un supodeht ios demon qui hieb kassamen eys leus, Jack siz oino iom tri meublen qua blockeer id dwer ios refuge. Stayg, is oislusit id meuble is vahsit desplace kun uno meg mukhtmel supposen tohr eys ment : imite perfect-ye id timbre uns voc ne eet albatt unte id schaecheing es cadanghen, bet is gnohsit per experience id kyudost imkan sienen malefic peinds os drughes apparences. “Ne quant quod bleict est gold”, mohn is considerend-ye kad is hieb est observet ab un demoniakem creature unte sieno mukam bim leikars dind, kam is hieb imaginet diuper, sohkwto tiel id refuge. Unte sem instant, Jack sprohcskwit Lohise quod object ia ei hieb daht. Bet, mehnend-ye, is dyisit un exact antwehrd ne esiet un formell pruv. Sei, kam is redwoyit, un demoniakis creature hieb spionen iom ghes posmiddien, el hieb ghohden vide eys funambule prientin ei dahe ays golden ring. Isghi decisit

Seighi es sa tu pretends ses, iey Jack, tib est tik zaruri sniges subter id dwer un object quod ghehdo recognihes. Mien poti me hieb maunt, declarit aun kunges un ster voco quod neti swohn kam tod os eys funambule prientin. Ne es un facil praedd, Jack Madrygal. Bet ne vaht un dreun dwer mi stambhes gwehme ad vane te.

Jack ne skohpt woide quosmed ia negnohn pliohcskwit entre id refuge : is abvols ed curs tem oku quem is ghohd. Quan is iter parvols, oik secundes serter, is oistahsit nieb id yesmenlict, einsghesor. “Ia hat passet subter id dwer !” mohn is, fix, endervidend-ye id skadh quod stohmb kyom in id tehrggwaur air. Stayg, is neti credih sien okwi ! Tri meters separeer iom ud tam aunforme creature qua duit id apparence uns gwen is habiet pohnden bell sei ays geulokwi ed ays orndptergs ne habient khanyen ays druv buhsa as demonu. Menxu ia observit Jack aun sayge werd, is kieu sa Diablin dohrj un long khandjar in uter hand, in alter un strangh. Jack se preparit ad drehde tam stayg apparition quan id fabuleus energia os eys magic sokwi lahsit eys corpos. Id metamorphose quod sohkwit chiaujaenit aum. Ant ia sassar okwi ias demonias, id immaterial vulbh quod periembh iom se enflammit kam un torche. Dind eys corpos schrohnk ye hol syrat ed, unte oin dakika, is bihsit un Belajye, un blou flamme kabil os trehce in id air, un creature tem buland quem uno smulko lanterne, gnoht in sien originmund ob hante ia desertst locs : muraischa, gixiadaus, catacombes au kharab baytels. It transformet, is buit rhayr kheissas dia ia malefices ias Diablin. Ne tik eet Jack invulnerable dia ia diabolic charms ias demonias, sontern eti sa tenicreature eet fascinen ab id smulko flamme quod ieydh ed diens ant ays okwi. Kam un av prisoner ios hypnotic spect es un serpent, ia oppos neid resistence quando Jack gwohm prosch iam. Ays albh ed srigo cuito trohs ye eys contact. Is ghieb tun ei eet kafi touche iam Diablin kay slabihes iam, beghsihes iam ays ayu. “Un lent nehc...” mohn is touchend-ye sien peindin ye un second ker, dind ye un trit... Kam pleisti demoniaki creatures is hieb viden nehce pon sien arriven do id mund Thule, ia Diablin vanicit kam linkwes id minsto trace, dreivhend con se sien strangh ed sien khandjar. Jack buit iter mon quan is emsit tsay menscforme. Id reste ios noct passit aun jecto gwohm ad trouble eys quiettia ed is brug tod moment os mukhlat kay examine sien actual situation bachimien. Iter meis, is hieb est confrontet oini malefic creature. Ob to, is deduxit od ia diabolic maghs os eys kassamen peind, tem terrifienda maghient ia ses, hieb limites. Sei is habiet ghohden, is demon qui hieb ei promiss un gvolenabad ei habiet yisen un armee em monsters diutos. Eti, Jack hieb kaun od semper dohn un certain sunyin inter dwo incontrens con oin sienen mignons. – Nam uns alambique ! rughiet is mehmend-ye quosmed is hieb entren id mund Thule. Appareihnt in id Grizim Ok ! Sigwra ghi hieb id Oiv os Feerie, unte id moment ios brand os eyso chateau, ghyanen un breche in wakt ed space. Eet tod dwor quod hieb ei promitten skape fat.

Eno ghi passage is demon eefolossieneut pon meis quem oino munt pre taiper kay lehnce sien ambikwols apter Jack. Jack Madrygal trusit sien chances os joine id mierst iom tri citads os Emrod forest unte dwo diens quando, quar hors pos octent, id strad kye Ambryn wieust ex id lays do uno smulko lawc. In id centre ios ghyahsa stieusit un imposant pillar os rectangular forme, tris hoger quem weur, bedohlven med niches in qua is dyohrc... “Sont ghalvs !” mohn Jack, lambht af horror, pre kwehre un rassurant aunstehgen : reducen do skeleta, ia caps logen in ia cavitats ios monolith monument hieb esen okwivid-ye trehn ab wakt.

Id noct hieb gwohmt pon meis quem oin hor ed Jack hieb zamejet quan Esus oisprohg : Habte yu alya questions ? No, antwohrd Jack. Rahatskwo nun ed, sei yu permitte, stahe ub aus cras kay habe id wakt os visite Ambryn. Vos hamrahsiem, iey is druid. Excellent idee, declarit Jack.

Esus likwit iom abneihnd-ye id diner tepji. Lyt pos, oins ia stavens cluden ed id dwer siens kamer andamen, Jack lyohgit ghom kay eme oik hors os un suastahalt swehpen. Pos un noct unte quod neid hieb gwohmt ad trouble eys rahat, Esus protiebud iom kovend-ye id dwer.

Ne tik ho io obtent confirmation de vies asimat ye aghyernend, sontern seuy hat zafallt unte id noct. Exo est un schungjin weter.

Pos neihvs iom do uno miero trapezariya quer is hieb jaldi snidant con pau tolkav druids, Esus duxit Jack ex id gordos ios quartier ios Temple.

In id sam quartier, Jack buit kathalika impresst ab id wehrg iom stolars, macens ed beursers os Ambryn. Vano un nov rucksack, iey is ad Esus. Is gohdst beurser ios urb wehst oik stieups dalg hetos, declarit is druid.

“Hol gwehmsiet ad quel sagvt intizare”, mohn Jack.
