STORY BLURB

SYNOPSIS

CHAPTER ONE

Story opens in late-October with Rhage covertly scanning the abandoned and time-ravaged Brownswick School for Girls, and feeling antsy for action. Inside the dormitories and classrooms were a large group of Lessers, and the Brotherhood had tracked them to the location, thanks to Assail turning on his former associates and joining the Brotherhood's fight against them.

Rhage is really amped to fight, and he blames it on the current funk he and Mary, his shellan, have hit.

Vishous interrupts that thought by approaching Rhage and telling him he's had a vision of this night. He warns Rhage to go home before the fighting begins. Rhage isn't listening, though, too much in need of a good brawl to care of the outcome that Vishous has seen. In desperation, Vishous reveals that Rhage is going to die here on this field in the battle.

Rhage refuses to go, claiming that if he runs from the idea of death and the Fade, he'll never be able to go back into the field again to fight. Further, he warns Vishous that if he doesn't fight, the Beast will break free sometime later that day, probably when they're locked up in the mansion, because he's too juiced to have much control. He tells Vishous that he's not afraid to die, because The Scribe Virgin promised him Mary could go with him anytime she wanted. He takes solace in that fact.

Vishous is so angry, he tells Rhage that if he has a death wish, then fine. He refuses to waste anymore time trying to convince Rhage that his life means something to everyone else.

Rhage thinks about the last time he was with Mary, how beautiful he found her, and how that vision would stay with him always.
