The Eternal Chain Chapter 2 First Draft

I've finished the next chapter of The Eternal Chain and you can read it at the bottom of this page.

In this chapter, again, much has changed from the original version. Brand shows that he knows who Raven and Kriss are, and that they are worth quite a bit of money. Raven in turn shows Brand that the Three Great ORders of Sorcery have bounties out on HIS head, and procees to explain that for some reason the Priory and the Seven want him dead, and that he may be the key to Raven's own revenge against them for the murder of his sister. Instead of Brand following after them, Raven, instead asks him to come with him so they can look for the answers to all of their collective questions together.

In the original Beyond the Lost Horizon, almost the entire book was written from Brand's point of view. In this book i'm going to try something different. Each chapter will be from the point of view of a different character, going in order, Brand Kriss Raven, and repeating. When Temari joins the crew her point of view will also be added to the rotation. In my opinion this will give a broader view of the story and the world, a more intimate experience with each of the characters, and make for a deeper and more detailed story. Also, it will allow for me to break the pattern in the end to make things seem a little more hectic and frazzled.
