    Summary

    "Do you believe in ghosts?"

    "Ghosts?" says Morse. “Good god, no.” He believes in mass delusion; more charitably, he believes in the mortal human need to make sense of the senseless.

    "Well, funny thing; everyone says the stacks are haunted." Trewlove says it so matter-of-factly that it’s impossible to tell how seriously she takes the idea.

    Summary

    Gimli, freshly-wakened, was lying with his head propped on one hand, his blanket at his waist. And he said, his voice morning-hoarse, "If my memory doesn't fail me, we'll be reaching the River Limlight soon. I'd dearly love a wash."

    Legolas's heart seized and tightened. The Limlight was in the very north of the forest, and once across it, they would emerge from their easy wandering, cracking out of the chrysalis to the pain of the open air. No more Fangorn, no more careless peace, no more Gimli at dawn stretching his muscles limber and grumbling about the wear of a bootsole.

    And all the future losses lined themselves up.

    Somewhere ahead, there is a gate. There always is. All that matters is closing it. Nothing can get in the way of that, not for Morgaine, and not for Nhi Vanye i Chya.
