Excerpt

Signet - 5th Printing - 1983

Uneasy Alliance

"In return for my silence about your treachery, I wish to exact an oath—a firm and solemn Sword Oath—from you, my lord."

Byruhn frowned. "What sort of oath, Duke Bili? Beward, I do not take threats lighty."

"Nor, I would hope," replied Bili, "would my lord take his sworn Sword Oath lighty. What I want is your oath that you never again, no matter what circumstances, will make of me and my squadrom military slaves bound by metal fetters and set to prosecute the wars of your kingdom. Will my lord so swear?"

Byruhn smiled coldly. "If you so distrust me, feel me to be without honor, what makes you think that I will abide by any oath, even a Sword Oath?"

"Because, my prince, you are a noble Sword-Brother, an Initiate. You know as well as I that if you should break the oath, that oath will kill you...
