St. John Frontispiece: Spreading his powerful wings, he rose, while Duare stretched her hands toward me.Drawing my sword, I leaped to the side of the huge arachnid and struck viciously at its head.The klangan, spreading thier wings, rose into the air, carrying us with them.Her dagger hand dropped to her side. I cannot, she sobbed and, turning, fled from the room.
