Here is a quote from THE GIRL WHO FELL INTO MYTH, book one of my new fantasy series. The ambiguous Numinasi noble, Valenty, who has tentatively befriended Yevliesza, is showing her the great Tower of the castle.
They looked down. Very far down, for the fall from the Tower through this door was not only to the base of the Tower but three times that far, down the rock cliff to the bottom.
“It's a wicked punishment,” she whispered.
“For the wicked.” Valenty sometimes forgot she was of the Earth and had not the hardness of Numinasi women.
