He aimed at the monster’s back, but with agility surprising in such a large creature it twisted out of the way, and the knife bit into its arm.

For a second, he felt as if he was going to tip over and plunge in; below was only a dull red light in a deeper blackness and a foul odour. He knew there was no bottom, only an endless drop that called to him; something in Javor’s mind yearned to lean over and fly into the chasm, to give himself to the infinite fall.
