Sinna’s every nerve vibrated with a desire to run, but he had to see the Codex. He clung to the shadows of the holy chamber, listening for any sign that the Eldaar were coming. When he was certain he was safe he moved into the flickering torchlight. The altar was reached in less than a breath’s space.
As he looked at the Codex’s intricate symbols Sinna realized with dismay he could not read the runes.
Dismay turned to despair as the Eldaar stepped from the shadows. Sinna heard the blade hiss before the darkness engulfed him.
