Captured by the resistance, Gervase and Julia are shoved into a cell to await their fate. The fighters who found them – and lost one of their number to Gervase’s bullet – want Gervase executed as a traitor, but Arthur intervenes and talks to Gervase personally, discovering that Mordrin has mentally conditioned him. Arthur sends a message through his highest-ranking contact in Mordrin’s inner circle, demanding a meeting with Mordrin himself. Mordrin receives the message and sets out to meet Arthur on neutral ground, where Mordrin ends the agreed-upon truce almost instantly by drawing a knife and handing it to Gervase. Prior Mordrin’s instructions to the boy still stand: kill the Prior’s greatest enemy. Even if that enemy is Mordrin’s estranged father, Arthur.
