Excerpt from DARK LIGHT:
Small stones rose from the brook bed and floated around Seva. She arranged them into circles and sent them spinning. Droplets of water flew through the air. Behind her eyes, a dull throbbing thrummed.
This was the sort of magic she’d been practicing even by herself. The sort of thing most Gari-Za could probably do. The headaches had returned, keeping her awake at night, and the queasy feeling in her stomach made it hard to eat.
She set the stones spinning faster, until they were nothing but streaking gray blurs. The faces of the Gari-Za thinned and bulged when seen through the whirling stones. Nightmare faces. Her stomach rolled.
They want a show. The words came from inside Seva’s own mind and they sounded like her words, only it felt as if someone else was speaking them. Throw the stones into the crowd. Show them what you are. You’ll feel better. No more headache. No more sickness. Only bliss. It would be so easy. All you have to do is push.
No! The thought shouted across her mind. I am not going to kill anyone. The surface of the brook began to bubble as Seva directed her magic at it. Steam rose up, further blurring the world around her until she wondered if this really was a dream. A light feeling swept over her. It seemed as if she could float away like a cloud.
The throbbing behind her eyes became a pounding. Something was pulling apart inside of her. The stones shivered like small animals trying to escape her grasp. She was losing control as the urge to strike out, to cause pain and mayhem, grew stronger.
