Aurora had always known that her father was a magic user, even though there were people who said, loudly, that telling a six-year-old the truth about what had happened was a mistake. She heard them all, because they seemed to think she was oblivious to what was happening around her, but she wasn’t. Being young didn’t make someone stupid and yet that was what everyone seemed to assume. They thought she was too young for the truth, as though she wouldn’t learn their version of the truth anyway, once they stopped criticising her mother and started gossipping about her father instead.

I really enjoy it when characters surprise me and this was something that I really wasn’t expecting when I started writing Falcon’s point of view.

No one knew. It was safer that way for both of them. Yet, by protecting Kestrel, Falcon had made her a target. Unfortunately that was part of the game he’d been playing since his father had decided it was time to move on. The same game his father, his grandfather and his great-grandfather had been playing, since the creation of the Black Hollow. Everyone saw him as someone who had taken the position his older brothers should have had, because they didn’t know why the Hollow had been created in the first place or that some mages from the outside had chosen to enter Ildieu long after it was created.
