DANIEL PRICE is the author of Slick and The Flight of the Silvers. He lives in Gilbert, Arizona, with his partner Nancy and her three children. He cannot actually manipulate time.
In the south, the Breach stirs.
Gamma’s sword, the Malice, wakes, calling to be taken to battle once more.
But the Vagrant has found a home now, made a life and so he turns his back, ignoring its call.
The sword cries out, frustrated, until another answers.
Her name is Vesper.
