From Protector of the Grey House:
Vincent stared at Anthony for a long time before he spoke again. “Did the ring call to anyone as it melted?”
“There has been no news of anyone throwing themselves into the furnace.”
“How do you know it didn’t spread the monk’s will to all the metal in the furnace?”
“That will be fairly easy to find out, Vincent.” He stated this as if he spoke to an infant.
Vincent narrowed his eyes. “I don’t appreciate your attitude.”
“It was not a good question, and you know it. We know that destroying artifacts breaks them and does not spread their magic.”
Vincent continued to glare at Anthony.
Anthony glanced to his side as both men heard a buzz. He looked back to his boss. “I have a meeting soon.”
