To Bleed a Crystal Bloom by Sarah A. Parker ePub PDF free download – The full-bellied moon casts a silver sheen across Vateshram Forest, the shadows stark against their illuminated backdrop. My horse gallops around the deeper pockets of black, weaving a path between ancient trees, breaths labored, ears pinned back. Every now and again, he tosses his head in defiance. I steal a look behind, making sure I’m not being followed. Seven years ago. That’s the last time I dared to make this trip. I held off for as long as I could. Wind whistles through the trees, an icy, Northern-borne breeze that carries a sharp scent and makes my hands tighten around the reins. Everything from the North comes with a taint these days: the wind, the food pulled off trade ships that have traveled down the River Norse, even the water that spills off its mountain border and fills our streams. Eyzar slows, then stops of his own accord, snorting and pawing the ground. “Steady, boy,” I soothe, running my hand along his thick, muscled neck.
