Finally got another chapter of this story done. I’m almost at that point where I accept that I won’t finish this story in November but that’s okay. It’s already over 41,000 words so I’ll make NaNo’s goals this month. I do think that slowing down a little bit will produce a better draft anyway. This chapter’s a good one. Besim gets to protect Juraj and we get a little more about the situation Juraj and Besim have gotten themselves into. Hope everyone enjoys the new chapter!

Summary: Escaping from their rapidly growing reputations after killing the Immortals (in Secrets of the Artificer Mages)) Juraj and Besim flee to the Northern Wastes to reunite with the friends Besim left behind as well as to investigate the strange magical force they felt from the Forbidden Islands during the final battle. Once there they find that things have changed for the worse for their friends, starting from when a mind-destroyed young man arrived among the Wanderers. Juraj and Besim decide to save him despite the dangers and risks surrounding them. It turns out to be a choice that will test their magical knowledge, their relationship and their ability to survive to the very limit.
