“I require nothing from the corpses of Gods,” said Heast coldly.
Behind the two, one of the drummers hit his skin softly, testing it. “They're dead,” Bueralan said. “Why you mountain people have trouble taking the spoils, I'll never know.”
“When I kill a man, I do not spend thousands of years thinking about him while I make the generations of my family eat the meat off his bones.”
