From Protector of the Grey House:
It took nearly six months for Vincent to convince her to use the sword this evening. She wanted to hide the sword to keep House LeGris safe, but Vincent knew it was the quickest way to kill off Edwin’s men. She relented, as she knew he was right. A large part of her couldn’t wait to use the sword. Edwin’s men didn’t know what was coming.
Next to her, Rebecca took slow deep breaths. She laid a hand on Natalia’s knee, to calm her. All were silent; all were tense. They could smell the battle adrenaline. The wolves wanted to be out of the car. Vincent wanted the element of surprise, which meant the wolves and Natalia had to stay put until they received the text. The other werewolves meditated, breathed deeply, and tried not to think about the fight, in order to stay calm. It wouldn’t do to start a fight in the car. By contrast to Natalia’s dress, the wolves were in older jeans and t-shirts. Their clothing would be ripped once they changed.
