Nilaihah the Golden-tongued, the fifth of seven paintings based on the drakhaouls of Sarah Ash’s Tears of Artamon trilogy. Oh, my long-lost yellow ochre. How I love you. Let’s never be apart again.
Nilaihah is a late-comer in the story, showing up at the start of the last novel “Children of the Serpent Gate” but not exactly telling us who he is until half way through the novel. Prince Enguerrand of Francia, Nilaihah’s host and patsy, doesn’t think its very funny when he discovers that the “angel” he’s been communing with is actually one of the daemons he’s trying to rid the world of. The other drakhaouls, however, find it hilarious.
