This chapter has a couple of issues. First is a bad transition — I never mentioned that Rivic leaves Gohaldinest to go back to his tribe. I felt as if I couldn’t write the transition scene now because I probably already have something written anyway which just needs a better place. So I’m leaving that.
Second is that this chapter is one that will get split into two later because it’s information heavy.
In the first part, Rivic and Alityka are talking about the workings of the magical markers on the bloodwave and what it means. Later on, after Alityka shows Rivic the absorption stones (little stone pieces of gargaxes which can temporarily take away magic, for those of you who haven’t read the Sacred Knight series), they speak more specifically about how removing a thread from the bloodwave can happen. It contradicts some of what was said earlier. They need some space separating them to invest time for Alityka to have gained more knowledge.
For the moment, I’m leaving the whole chapter as it is – talking heads and all — just because throwing a novel like this out there each week doesn’t allow me to go back and correct things in the timeline as I discover them. You really don’t want me messing around with your memories in the way that would take. Trust me. This way is much better.
Well, now I’ve forewarned you about this chapter. Let’s get to it.
