> Suddenly one of them turns and faces Frost. "Is them! Is them!" it shouts.
> Far behind them, Arden begins screaming. "Noooo!" Even in this

Before Frost or Osiris can react, the man takes advantage of the
humanoids' apparent confusion, drops grenades in their midst and darts
off. The explosion catches two of the humanoids, blowing them to
pieces and knocking the rest off their feet.
A dark cloud races after the man and within seconds he is surrounded
in it, barely visible, but what little can be seen of his expression
indicates great pain.
Osiris races forward, his horse entering a full gallop. He enters the
shadow and then his horse rears, tossing Osiris to the ground, and he
begins writhing in pain.
