After a half-hour Lewella stops. Her head whips around to face east, behind us. She’s a blur as she moves twenty feet past us where she stops again to peer east into the jungle. I whirl but don’t see anything. I grip WhipEye. The jungle is darkening fast.
“What is it?” I whisper.
Brandon and Tom bracket Jake and me, and follow Lewella’s gaze. Tom picks up a thick branch lying on the ground and holds it like a club.
Brandon glances at us. “We’ve got company.”
“Not friendly,” says Tom.
I still don’t see or hear anything.
“Protect the guardians!” Lewella says sharply.
“I’ll protect you, Sam.” Jake fidgets at my side, glancing everywhere.
A blood-curdling screech erupts. I’m immediately thinking of the demon again.
“That doesn’t sound like a friend.” Jake pulls me back a few steps and whispers, “Get ready to run.”
A large figure the size of a small elephant silently charges out of the darkness, its body a blur. It’s running as fast as I’ve seen Lewella move. Before she can morph into her faerie form the charging creature backhands her in the side with a clawed paw, sending her flying.
Lewella!” Tom charges and swings his club at the beast’s lowered head, while Brandon crashes into the creature’s side with his shoulder. The beast jerks its head back, out of reach from Tom’s weapon, and bats him aside, and somehow absorbs Brandon’s blow and swipes him away too.
Then the animal is upon us.
Jake jumps in front of me. I’m instantly thinking how brave he is, just before the creature hits his armor, sending him flying.
“Ahh!” he yells.
“Jake!” I cry.
I recognize the fifteen-foot-tall mammal. Its large head and neck make it obvious. Tasmanian devil. Pound for pound it has the strongest bite among mammalian predators.
I jab WhipEye at its head, but it rears back fast and clamps its teeth on the end of the staff. My fingers tighten reflexively like vises on the chestnut wood. The devil jerks its head and twists me sideways. I stubbornly cling to the staff and wonder if the devil will crush the staff in its jaws.
A paw flashes at me and my back erupts with pain. I cry out and drop to my knees, numb all over, gasping. The only thing keeping me upright is the Tasmanian devil hanging onto WhipEye. I’m amazed I’m still hanging onto the staff—my hands won’t let go. I expect the beast to drag me through the jungle and struggle to keep my eyes open as agony engulfs me.

I’m barely aware of an eight-foot airborne Lewella as she rams the devil from the side with the soles of her feet, while the brothers hit it from the other side. More roars and screeches surround us from other creatures hidden in the jungle. We don’t have a chance if there’s that many attackers.
