Lukassa’s rage of knowledge seemed to ebb somewhat; when she spoke again, saying, “Here and here,” she sounded more like a child driven to exasperation by the sluggishness and stupidity of adults.
Ярость Лукассы, похоже, немного улеглась. Когда она снова заговорила, сказав: «Вот тут и тут», она была больше похожа на ребенка, доведенного до отчаяния медлительностью и тупостью взрослых.

My fingers crept up and touched a familiar wire of heat at my collarbone - the necklace, silver-dipped raccoon baculum and bloodmarked bloodstones, its potent force spent and at low ebb.
Мои пальцы поползли вверх и коснулись знакомой жаркой линии у ключицы ‑ ожерелья с оправленной в серебро приаповой косточкой енота и помеченными кроваво‑красными гелиотропами, чья сила была почти исчерпана.
