From Protector of the Grey House:
Joseph and Mierka believed she had a right to fight and train as if she were her own army. She fought Slayers and had to watch her back for Edwin’s men, too. Edwin finally had his coronation, without the presence of Vincent and his men. He ignored them for the better part of a year, then had taken an interest in Vincent’s businesses again. It was all part of the plan. As long as Edwin was focused on the human aspect of Vincent’s world, he would not be interested in what Vincent’s vampires were doing.
“No word from your spies?” He aimed the question at Anthony’s reflection.
