Terisa & Geraden have failed to stop Elega from poisoning the resevoir.

Kragen's men are laughing and taunting the guards of Orison.

And Lebbick is stewing at a low simmer, waiting for something or someone to set off the explosion......and he can't wait for that someone to be Terisa.

Quote:
Yes, the Castellan mused, she was an interesting woman.And her turn was coming. Someday soon he would have her in his power. Then she would learn what it really meant to be accused. He would teach her thoroughly.


Lebbick cannot bring himself to trust or believe a word Terisa says. He still blames her for all the problems they are having and believes she is behind this plot to overthrow Orison & the King.

Quote:
That woman's turn was coming.


Lebbick seems to have a serious anger management problem...... Twisted Evil

Finally, the Alend Monarch's full might is upon Orison - ten thousand strong with massive seige engines readying for the attack.

Kragen & Elega ride out under a flag of truce, offering a meeting between Joyce & the Alend Monarch. Lebbick offers the King's response:

Quote:
King Joyce asks me to point out to you - and your illustrious father - that neither of you understands hop-board. You wouldn't have gotten as far as a stalemate without help. Instead of waving your swords at us, you ought to remember what happened the last tie you went to war with Mordant.


Elega is infuriated:

Quote:
"By the stars Lebbick," cried out the lady Elega, "is he still playing hop-board? Tell him to surrender!"


Lebbick responds with one of the best quotes from the book:

Quote:
"I am sure that my daughter Elega has acted for the best reasons. She carries my pride with her wherever she goes. For her sake, as well as my own, I hope that the best reasons will also produce the best results."


With this and Joyce's threat to "unleash the full force of the Congery" any hope of a peaceful resolution are gone and the seige begins. Geraden goes to try to talk to Artagel & Terisa retreats to her rooms and finally falls asleep.

She wakes to the impetuous Eremis, making the "moves" on her and she finds herself not able to say no. His sway on her is great - he is still the only man to ever show an interest in her (in a physical sense) and she finds herself very attracted to that. She does find her internal struggle coming to a breaking point. Eremis' advances & physical interest in her are new & exciting & really make her feel alive & wanted, but Geraden's trust & emotional support are vital to her also.

Luckily, Eremis really helps her by spewing his usual arrogant, self righteous B.S., reminding her of just how clever & intelligent he really is & how he's got it all figured out. This guy really irritates me. Mad

And Geraden helps out by pulling another of his impeccable entrance timings and walks in on Terisa & Eremis, just as Eremis is beginning to "claim" her. This is one of the funniest scenes in the book. I can just see Eremis all revved up and Geraden pops in & says "hey, whats up?" (hehe)

Before Eremis & Geraden can kill each other, Gart shows up & tears the place apart. Eremis says an interesting thing when Gart appears:

Quote:
"Gart!" Master Eremis shouted. "Whelp of a dog! Your timing is miraculous!"


Hmmmmm, what does that mean, I wonder???????

The chapter ends with yet another retreat into Terisa's wardrobe and yet another threat to Geraden by Eremis.

Make that two of us, buddy! Wink Rolling Eyes Laughing

When I read this chapter my first thought was how terrified I would feel if I went to sleep alone in my room and woke up with someone pawing at my chest. Shocked Shocked Shocked

That would in turnmake three of us. I despise Eremis... though somewhat envy him... his confidence... The same way I would envy Holt Fasner (If he was real) for his brains. Confused

Arrogance irritates me more than meaness, almost more than evil-combine any of the two and SRD has very different yet as totally a despicable villian as Lord Foul...
