1. Fire creeps along the forest floor like thick slime, flames unnaturally slow in the heavy magic.

2. “No one asked for your opinion,” she snapped through her sobs and the angel had the audacity to shrug.

5. Their horses are wary as the giant wolves approach but suddenly settle down. It isn’t until much later that she learns it wasn’t magic, but the wolves’ natural ability to modify their scents. Apparently, pack horses are fine with you looking scary as long as you act peacefully and smell like food.
