I’m skipping to the end of the story. It sets the stage for the next book. The cat has the final line, and the prequel continues into the start of Book 1, Grand Master’s Pawn.
We are in the Griffin’s POV and he is considering his short list of the candidates in the annual selection of pawns. (edited to fit)
He glared at the name on the top of his list of candidates, Violet Hunter. How had she dared to apply for the selection? Was she foolish or merely ignorant of her heritage? What Grand Master would take the risk of employing the prophet’s daughter as a pawn? What a crazy choice, embracing the omen of their destruction.
His grim laughter echoed around the room.
He replayed the clip of the girl’s combat exam with one of the instructors. The tiger-striped Aman-ellan sheathed his claws and fought with a sensor-tipped knife; anticipating each strike with agile leaps, the girl blocked his attacks with ease.
Rascal sat on his haunches and patted his paw at the dancing images of the girl and her opponent; he uttered an emphatic, “Meow!” and settled back on the Griffin’s lap.
“Crazy cat!” the Grand Master grumbled.
