The summer's warmth sweltered, and the city groaned in sweaty protest.

Shading her forehead, the queen stared across the brown fields. A fleeting figure wavered on the horizon, and she squinted. Slowly the mass took shape, but still the queen frowned, sure that what she saw was a vision, brought about by the heat.

Smiling, the queen turned to her son, who stood with her. But Eldarion was already running.
