Amy never got the hang of death. The firefight, the triage, those first few hours of adrenaline and tears, those she knew inside and out. But here, now, sitting alone in the dark of an ancient city, it didn’t seem real.

They had spaceships.

Ray guns.


All trappings of the future laid out like toys, just waiting for someone to turn them on. And Miri, who’d carried a butterfly net instead of a gun, Miri was lying in the infirmary, waiting for Elizabeth to sign the order and pull the plug. Because of an arrow.

They had fucking spaceships.
