As we are approaching this holiday season, with all the “busy-ness” that it entails, it seemed right to keep things a bit simple this time around. Thus, we’ve decided to share with you, pictures of our imagined people, places and things from our work.
I'll go ahead and start, and then we'll see what Robin Lythgoe as to say . . .
For a picture of a person, I’m actually going to expand this definition to include a character that is not a person. That is “Bane,” from Select: The Oathtaker Series, Book Two. Bane is a wolf that Jerrett mistakenly takes for a dog. Because of his connection to the animal via his attendant magic, Bane assists Jerrett in an escape:
“I see.” Jerrett stepped back. He had to get inside, but he dared not let the men know what he was up to. He looked about. No one paid any attention to what was going on at the residence.
For my “place, I’ve chosen the Palace of the Select at Shimeron. Here, is an excerpt from Oathtaker: The Oathtaker Series, Book One, noting how Dixon felt about the palace:
Dixon hadn’t missed anything about the palace. He dreaded its endless protocol. Walking just behind Lilith and Marshall, he felt like a prisoner. I am a prisoner, banded like this.
Finally, for my “thing,” I’ve chosen The Book of the Blood. In Oathtaker, we read:
“What’s this got to do with Lilith, Ted? We need to act quickly.”
Do join me and take the Oathtaker journey for yourself. And--have a happy holiday season! Until next year . . .
Now, let's see what Robin Lythgoe, author of As the Crow Flies has to share with us.
For my person, I’ve gone with the obvious choice: the main character. Sherakai’s tale begins when he is a youth, about fifteen years old. As the youngest of four boys, he’s got a pretty easy life. His father and his older brothers are warriors, and although he admires that, he has no inclination to follow in their footsteps. He’s not keen, either, on being sent away from horse and home to study at the faraway College of Magic. Of course nothing goes the way either Sherakai or his parents plan…
