Brandon—or maybe it was Brian; I didn’t look for the mole that differentiated them—said, “He’s living in a Harry Potter room. Long fall for a master of his own clan.”
The other twin said, “No windows. There is no room with no windows but this one.”
“Still. Long fall.”
“Indeed.” The conversation ended. There was no doubt that they had intended me to hear it. They had nothing to say to me as they closed up the shelving unit that secured the daytime sleeping place of my primo. I had nothing to say to them either, remembering Edmund’s memory of the dying slave in the blizzard. Silently, I watched as they all left the house.
Moments later, Alex stood in the opening to the foyer, shoes on his feet, real pants—the kind that covered his legs to his ankles—and plaid shirt over his T-shirt. “Since my blood-drunk brother is healed and sleeping off the treatment, I plan to go out. Okay with you?”
I looked at Alex blankly. I could count on two fingers the times he had left the house to “go out” since he and Eli moved in. And then I remembered and quoted back to him. “‘Game con in town. Small one,’ but you got friends who’ll be there. Go. Have fun.”
“Right. Call me if you need me.” He waggled his cell at me. Undoubtedly his other electronics were in the gobag slung over his shoulders. “You’ll watch Eli?” he asked unnecessarily.
“Of course,” I said, also unnecessarily, but polite.
And then I was alone but for the sleepers.

Jane Yellowrock is a shape-shifting skinwalker…and the woman rogue vampires fear most.
Jane walks softly and carries a big stake to keep the peace in New Orleans, all part of her job as official Enforcer to Leo Pellissier, Master of the City. But Leo’s reign is being threatened by a visit from a delegation of ancient European vampires seeking to expand their dominions.
And there’s another danger to the city. When she hears reports of revenant vampires, loose in NOLA and out for blood, Jane goes to put them down—and discovers there’s something unusual about these revenants. They never should have risen.
Jane must test her strength against a deadly, unnatural magic beyond human understanding, and a ruthless cadre of near-immortals whose thirst for power knows no bounds…
New York Times Bestselling author Faith Hunter writes three series: the Jane Yellowrock series, dark urban fantasy novels featuring Jane, a Cherokee Skinwalker; the Rogue Mage novels, a dark, urban fantasy / post apocalyptic series and role playing game featuring Thorn St. Croix; and the Soulwood Series featuring Nell Nicholson Ingram.
