It’s time for another installment of Science Fiction Saturday! It’s a blog ring of SF/F snippets and you can check out other SFF Saturday posts, as well.
Here’s another snippet from Old Wounds for you. This is the twentieth part. You can find the other parts here.
When we last left Master Sorne and Ambrose, she’d told him Moroloch wanted a very large sapphire.
Of course, the King’s stone. Moroloch was a right bastard. Still, she let Ambrose voice the plan.

It was actually on a shelf in Oradon’s bedroom, but only those closest to the King would know that. She nodded. “And so they sent you to steal the one in the Palace. Or lose your daughter.”
His shrug was one of helplessness. “If I refused, he said he’d send me my daughter’s head.”
Moroloch is not on Sorne’s good guy list…
