Locations to Expect in Book Three (and ones we have seen so far)
So book three, which is tentatively titled as Threads that Bind the Tempest has a very robust draft, so I can share some little nuggets about the plot and setting. This particular nugget is where in Tyra Kolaq'blegae our intrepid Trinity and the One and the supporting cast will be seeing. Locations to expect and all that.
- Earth - HTSW
- Magaya - HTSW/HW
- The Ascended's Abode - HTSW
- Jalon - HW
- Djarmen - HW
- Eisatanlon - HW
- Sangrae La (Baune) - HW
- A Spikarian style planet - HW
- Wolfen - HTSW/HW
- Mechanicha - HW
A pretty decent start for covering the expanse of Tyra Kolaq'blegae. A mere drop into its size and breadth, but it is drop nonetheless. Book three expands upon it, but admittedly not by much. It expands it in a different way...
Now where are they heading in book three? Not necessarily in any order.
- Magaya - Obviously. HQ and all.
- A obscure, stormy research outpost - Interesting, eh?
- Paeyk - The scorn has been written for this race/planet in Harmonic Waves, but how is it really?
- A Diamondae ruin - Exciting, right?
- Hallihanet - One of the big players.
- An artificially constructed planet made by the Aryuihl - Spooky stuff. What does it mean?
And that is about it.
If it seems like a tight range of locations, it is. Book three is like a tight horror-psychological thriller. The events take place in rapid fire sequence, probably taking up a real-time interval of less than How to Stop Wildfire's.
I'll stop spoiling/talking now. That's all for now. I return to editing the stupid thing.
Thanks for reading.
Philosophy: The Highest Form of Devotion is Destruction
“The most highest form of use and appreciation of existence and life is the act of destruction of it.” - Cyclone, Harmonic Waves “For destruction is the highest form of devotion…” - Ra, Emerald Haze Above are two selected quotes from the series regarding the philosophy that destroying something is the highest form of devotion towards something. At first, this idea may seem nonsensical, but it makes sense from a certain perspective. Cyclone, a devout Empirian, explains it very well...
Sepulcher of Shadows: A Short Story following The Madness of Light
It has been a long, long while since I’ve done a short story. It feels good! This one is called the ‘Sepulcher of Shadows’. You can read it here on the Spine of the Empire. It is related to the events of The Madness of Light, so heavy spoilers abound. It is specifically related to Lana Zfhi’s claim that even if they tried to create another Zfhi Avatar from the genetic material of the dead, they would fail. So, in...
