An excerpt from Bright Sword of Ireland
The door between the worlds was open.
I do not know when they pushed the Hound through, but when I looked down he was stretched at my feet, on his face a look of deep repose. He turned his head toward me; no recognition was in his eyes. He did not rise. Fear moved through me, deep and cold. I leaned above him.
"Dog-Boy, it is Finnabair, your friend. I have come to take you home."
"Where is Fand?
"I do not know this one."
"Surely she came with me."
My stomach lurched. I looked around. She was standing directly behind me, silent as the stars.
