----------------------

The silver cuffs glinted like moonlight in Uther's hands.

Reviled things, made of magic, but useful or so the merchant said. He'd assured Uther that sorcerers would be helpless to resist them, would do anything — even kill those they professed to love — to obtain them. And once claimed, the cuffs would melt into their skin, would drain them of all magic, making them as vulnerable as newborne pups, ripe for the slaughter.

All Uther had to do was lay them out for all to see and wait to spring the trap.

The pyres would burn bright for years to come.
