“Who kneels before the king?” boomed a deep voice.
“We found this whelp and his giant trespassing in the king's lands,” said one of the guards. “We took care of the giant, but thought you would want to question this spy.”
“What errand brings a fool and his giant into my kingdom?” “

“We need no Wards here,” the voice said in disdain. “This is a lie. Stand up and speak, Ward!”
The guards hauled Thomas to his unsteady feet. He looked up for the first time through bruised and swollen eyes, and his mind froze in shock and wonder. Why did Sonspeaker not tell me about the king of this land? Why would that knowledge have been kept from me?
Thomas's mind raced in a futile attempt to understand. The king of Westland is a giant, and he is not the only one!
