His calming spell soothed the fears of the soldiers, urging them on as he dropped into the black pit the skaven had created, a slight expenditure of magic turning his fall into a slow descent. The light cast by Erwin’s glowing form illuminated the crude tunnel, its walls of bare earth and the jagged rocks littering its floor. Then the light flickered and Erwin clutched at his temple in sudden pain. Once again, he could feel someone drawing all of the fractious colours of magic together into one monstrous spell.
Its paw tightened around the iron grip of a hammer, the skaven crept toward the gyrocopter. If it was lucky, it might only meet with a fatal accident. For Gnawlitch Shun’s ways of disposing of those who displeased it were far more inventive than anything the murderous machine could inflict. Bastian lunged upward from his bed, sweat drenching his body. The youth gulped down great lungfuls of air. He looked around him, staring at his surroundings in bewilderment until memory vanquished the last dregs of dream from his mind.

If any solid, incontrovertible proof of their existence was extant, it had either been suppressed or destroyed. He was placing a great deal of hope in the secret Maeckler collection. Bastian’s hands trembled as he turned the worn leather pages of the sheepskin-bound folio. His breath was ragged and uneven as his eyes studied the words drawn upon the pages in a spidery scrawl, his mind sickening as the words became knowledge.
