"Though," said Corridon gravely, "we need to consider how you held off Chloe. She can bewilder almost anyone with her glamors. And she will resent how you didn't."

"Four-leafed clovers," said Artos."

Hope leafed through the pages again. Beware the proud, the vengeful, the angry, the envious, and even the bitter, said one. The effect will not be pretty. Give this potion only to those of sound character. Hope scowled. Some were cures, some were tantalizing chances at powers, some carried warnings.

I was surprised. That Carrigiana would be angry at our escape, especially when we fled this far away, and vengeful enough to be perilous if we fell into her hands, was obvious, but that Arabella did not think she could weasel out of it, that was out of the ordinary.
