Chapter 164: Mismatched
Even though Tamaes fought confidently with his spear, Taweel kept him on the defensive. Over and over, the younger Guardian was forced to bring up his wings to deflect a ringing blow.
Aerial tactics were Tamaes’s favorite. He borrowed from the cherubim’s stratagem and the malakim’s acrobatics. By adding what he’d learned in the hadarim encampment, he made the battle his own. Unique. Versatile. But frustratingly limited against Taweel’s sword.
“This would go better if you also held a spear,” he complained.
Taweel smirked. “You would be better if you also held a sword.”
