Thrown down and taken up, carried in a rush to the First Gate and beyond. They would never be able to make their way back. Lirael had time to think only a few final, awful thoughts. They had failed so soon. So many depended on them. All was lost. ” and barked. The bark was infused with Free Magic. Without opening her eyes, without conscious thought, Lirael swung round and suddenly found herself running, running headlong, running as she had never run before.

Sam caught her glance and picked at the heavy golden thread where the Wallmakers’ symbol was woven through the linen. It was only slowly entering his head that the sendings hadn’t made a mistake with the surcoat. For a start, it was newly made, not some old thing they’d dragged out of a musty cupboard or centuries-old laundry basket. So he probably was entitled to wear it for some reason.
