This is, as suggested, an outtake from the Briggs Mercyverse novel ‘Silver Borne’.  That novel isn’t my fave, although it’s not bad.  But I’ve never much cared for Samuel Cornick – for a supposedly dominant werewolf he’s a bit of a drip, a moaning Minnie with not much go in him.  And Ariana the dark and tortured Fae, his old girlfriend – well, she has more flowery speeches, all over the place, than she’s got personality.

This is overwritten, annoying, verbose and dull.  No chemistry, no charm, no ta.

Sorry to the superfans, but although I love Briggs she sometimes cocks up completely.  It only makes her human, and I appreciate the really wonderful parts of her writing all the more.
