Example text

Thea’s mind reached in and unraveled the images hidden in Maia’s deceptive simplicity: Are there other worlds? Where other kinds of folk live? And then she blinked. Of course there were. She knew that. There were worlds of the Faele and of the Alphiri and of the Dwarrowim and of who knew how many other different races whose paths had never passed into the human realm. Perhaps never even could. Thea suddenly had a vision of world upon world peeling away from a central kernel of primeval light, like skins off an onion, each full of its own wonders.

Thea’s eyes were round as an owlet’s again. “Meet one? ” The laugh came again, a high sweet giggle from the spider in Thea’s hair, the only comment Grandmother Spider had to make. “I guess,” Thea said hesitantly, trying to imagine such an encounter, and spectacularly failing to wrap her mind around it. Grandmother Spider laughed again, the laugh filled with the sheer joy of that moment. “Put me down, please,” she said. ” She changed back into her woman form and stood bathed in the starlight, both hands raised to the sky, her head flung back and her throat arched, humming a strange melody.

Unable to leave without at least a modicum of graciousness as befitted a great lord dealing with his lowly subjects, he unfurled his long arms until they hung by his sides, almost touching the ground, and gave Thea a shallow courteous bow from the waist. He cleared his throat portentously. “Brightness to you, child,” he said. He spun on his heel, turning himself into a small tornado of warm golden light, and then the tornado detached itself from the ground and hurled itself back up into the heavens.
