It’s time for Weekend Writing Warriors! Every Sunday, a bunch of writers post 8-sentence snippets from their WIPs on their blogs. There’s a lot of reading, commenting and great writing. Click on the link to see the full list.
Oh, it’s nice to be back! Thanksgiving was lovely, but I missed you guys. I’m already knee-deep in the second book of this series, so this is a fun bit of review for me.
Last time we were with Kendryk, he had a very bad dream. This prompted him to act, persuading Julia Maxima to allow Kendryk to keep Father Landrus in custody and asking the empress for permission to hold a trial on neutral ground. This gives Kendryk the chance to spend more time with the priest and learn more about his reasons for rebelling. Landrus promises to show him everything he has learned from studying the Holy Scrolls- their version of scripture.
“I don’t know why you believe me now, but something has happened to change your mind.”
Kendryk nodded. “I had a dream about the last battle, I think- it went badly.”
“It will go badly if things continue as they are,” Landrus said, laying the quill down. “You give me a great deal of hope however, and once you’ve had a chance to read the relevant passages in the Scrolls, you’ll understand why. They speak of a young ruler who will stand against the forces of darkness alone, although in time he will be joined by many others as they come to learn the truth.”
“Will the Scrolls also show me what I need to do next?” Kendryk couldn’t help but feel this was far more important now that he had committed himself.
“The Gods always give guidance to those who seek the right path; I have no doubt that you will find it.”
From here on out, all snippets should be in proper chronological order, now that I have made Aeon Timeline my bitch. 🙂by
