Today's Favorite Passage

"Too quiet out here," the warlock mumbled. "Something's not right."

"Quiet all right."

"No," Morgan said. "Too quiet."

Too quiet? He couldn't grasp what the ogre meant, so he would have to force another query on the warlock, even if he was already tired of Paul's questions.

"How can a forest be too quiet?"


Paul held his breath and cocked his head like Morgan. Far overhead in the peaks, the mountains heaved as though mourning.

"Regular forest sounds," Paul mumbled. "The wind in the trees."

"No chattering squirrels, jays, crows. No varmints scurrying for safety, hearing our approach. Rare to go an hour without hearing a bull elk calling out this time of the season. Ruttin' season approaching. The bulls will be serious about herding together their harems. The hills are silent. Something's not right."
