Inside this Book – Near ten minutes had run dry since he’d vanished into the quarantine hut, and Fie had spent the last seven of them glaring at its gilded door and trying not to worry a stray thread on her ragged black robe. Taking one minute meant the Sinner’s Plague had already finished off the boys inside. Taking three meant Pa had a merciful end to deliver. Taking ten was taking too long. Ten meant something was fouled up. And from the whispers sweeping the pristine tiles of the courtyard, their throngs of onlookers were catching on. Fie gritted her teeth until the queasy pinch in her gut retreated. Pa knew what he was doing. Twelve hells, just yesterday morning he’d led their band of Crows to answer a plague beacon, collected corpse and coin, and had them all back on the roads before noon. That town had no shortage of gawkers either: a man slipping looks through his loom threads, a woman steering her goat herd past the sinner’s hut to steal a better view. Children had twisted from their parents’ grasp to stare at the Crows and ask if monsters hid under the beaked masks and black robes. Fie reckoned the answer changed depending on whether a Crow was in earshot. But Fie had seen gagglers and worse near every day she could recall. As the only caste untouched by the plague, the Merciful Crows were duty-bound to answer every summons.
Inside this book –The Merciful Crow PDF Book by Margaret Owen – Fie had never expected to die quiet. Young, maybe. On the end of a sword, also likely. And doing what she did best: picking a fight over something easier left alone. She did not expect to die swallowed whole. But the Fan River had done just that. The river churned with thrashing limbs and arrows like viper strikes, gurgling through the sides of her mask. Yet beyond her glassblack eyes lay naught but the bottomless dark of the reservoir sucking at her heels. Then Pa’s bag of teeth floated past. Something snapped. She fought to catch at the leather—but Pa’s sword slipped free—she couldn’t lose it, she had to get them back to Pa, back to the chief— The blade bit into her palms and fingers, and red bloomed in the water. She didn’t care. She’d return Pa’s sword or die sinking to the bottom of this damned well. Someone yanked at her hood, dragging her up until she broke the surface. The silence of the river shattered into howling alarm horns and a roar of falling water. “Hang on!” someone shouted before a wave slopped over Fie. The river wouldn’t give her up easy, stuffing watery fingers through the mask and into her teeth, into her nose, drowning her in wet mint leaves. The current twisted her round and round until one hip slammed into a rough stone edge.
