Quick Commentary Ok, as many of you readers know, one of the story's originally presented here is stepping up to the novel form. So far so good.

A book within a book, haha!

The Library Part 16 I'll never forget the day I first saw the book. It coinsided with our arrival in the City of the Centurian. It was a relatively small place, a cluster of buildings perched on a high cliff above a turcois sea. Koon and I arrived and right away I saw something special in the people...

A Character Sketch I've been meaning to Share

Hendrick On a rocky hillside filled with caves and crevices resided the old Hendrick. A hermit, a wanderer, a devious scoundrel.

The Library Part 15 Take the crown, sure. Why not? Taking what's not yours is wrong, but getting home was more important. Koon and I left the Revolutionary's house.

The Library Part 14 I froze, heart racing, eyes widening. Koon looked at me. "What's the matter?" "I'm seeing a ghost." The Revolutionary stood, stretching his arms out to me, "Hello, Tristen."

Let me try this idea on for size

The Library Part 13 The next day I set off again. Oddly, Koon decided to join me. I have debated over the years why he decided to do so.

Next step in our journey.

The Library Part 12 I followed Koon through the tangle of foliage until we reached a campsite high in the trees. It was really only a bunch of ramps and platforms with lanterns hanging from them.
