In a dry croak he said, "highness, it is done.' Taking one slow step, then another, towards the Prince, Nathan smiled weakly. Then he fell forward, to be caught by Arutha before he struck the floor.

The voice of her assailant was so horrible from spite and rage that it was almost a croak; but he, too, was saying something, and just as quickly and indistinctly, hurrying and spluttering.
Голос бившего стал до того ужасен от злобы и бешенства, что уже только хрипел, но все-таки и бивший тоже что-то такое говорил, и тоже скоро, неразборчиво, торопясь и захлебываясь.

The region was ominously deserted, and even most of the birds seemed muted, the only exception being the sooty ravens, who seemed to croak from every tree.
Местность была абсолютно безлюдна, в темном лесу молчали даже птицы, лишь черные как сажа вороны тоскливо каркали, сидя на верхушках.

There was a muffled clanking and rustling and the occasional croak.
Оттуда доносились лязг, подозрительные шорохи, а иногда чей-то хрип.

А Момусу вокруг горла снова обвилась обжигающая змея кнута, и вопль перешел в хрип.

He felt alone and unprotected, and scraping crickets and shrilling tree frogs and croaking toads seemed to be carrying the melody of evil.
Он чувствовал себя одиноким, беззащитным, и в стрекотанье цикад, в скрипучих голосах квакш, в урчанье лягушек ему слышался напев врага.
