Description: Frowning, Mallory stood as rigid as an oak while Aldrid leaned his weight on one leg, completely at ease. He was more than a head shorter than Mallory, but I still had to look up to his face–a face spattered with freckles and half hidden by a wild mane of russet curls. A short beard the same bright hue encircled his mouth.

Been called worse things by many men, I’m sure.” “I’m Amarys.” “Lord Rensweald’s cousin, I understand,” Aldrid said. “Who’d have known such a beautiful rose could bloom on his family’s brittle bush?”THE TAKING
