Gabriel cursed under his breath. He had no way of knowing what kind of test a deity like Death could create, but it wasn't likely to be good. While he had full faith in Rhyn, he also knew better than to trust the petite woman in white standing in his dream.
The dream sky wasn't even real, and he missed it already.
It was still dark, and the moons of the underworld hadn't moved far across the sky. He sat, uneasy with the dream exchange with Death. A small fire burned between him and Katie, whose pale features and shadowed eyes were showing the effects of both her pregnancy and the toll the underworld took on mortals.

She hugged him hard. Rhyn wrapped his arms around her, marveling at how real her body felt in the dream. Her hair tickled his face, and he rested his chin on her head. They held each other for a long moment.
Her thoughts went to him and her latest dream.
Two days ago, I had a dream where she told me you had four days to pass some sort of test. I don't need to tell you what happens if you don't pass.
What I came to discuss with you was a dream you had.
"I haven't had that dream," he said.
I would remember a dream where I died.
Let's pretend you had a dream where you died, Death said.
Before we left, she talked to me about some dream I didn't have then started to talk about philosophy.
Maybe Katie had known this was how it would end when they'd last met in his dream. Maybe this was his penance for being what he was. Rhyn didn't know, but he knew he couldn't choose his own interests over those of humanity.
She stepped closer to him as she had in their dream, gazing up into his molten silver eyes. He'd gone to Hell for Hannah and confronted Death for her. He'd killed demons to protect her and defied his family to find – and keep – her.

"It's not a dream," he said.
