The Elder had been chained up where she had found Gage. His skin began sizzling where the metal touched him and he hollered out, "What have you done!?" He glared at the two of them. He slowly put his closed fist to his mouth, opened it, and blew on it. Rue felt fire kiss her skin. He'd cursed her, without using any words. Everywhere the metal seared the Elder, it also burned Rue. She cried out as the Elder wrapped himself in the chains, baring down the pain. It cut through Rue like a wolf fangs and she screamed.
~I just finished book 5 yesterday and named it A Whisper of Rue. It was difficult for me to pick something that wouldn't give the surprise away, but I don't think this gives too much away. I do hope you enjoyed.
