Second Sun #41

In the closed room, Triu's words fell hard against white stone walls. Urqin wiped his mouth with his hand and said quietly: "You will not refuse our advice."
Triu smashed his fist into his open palm. His words were loud and sharp edged.
"My sister could even now be in battle! And you expect me to sit down and talk with the Fire Lords?"
Rallumi began: "Lord Triu, it is of Kamkarra and the people we - "
Urqin interrupted her "Now is not the time to think of Hevne, Interim Lord. Now is the time to think of your people."

    As someone who generally doesn't read fantasy fiction I must say maybe I've been missing out, because this is a really great read.

    Thanks very much Christopher. Tbh I have no idea what I'm doing here because I haven't got very much to go on. I've not read much fantasy - the odd book here and there and Lord Of The Rings (several times) but nothing in the last ten years or so (as far as I can remember) - apart from Jeff's amazing stuff. But we'll see where this goes - thanks for the support mate.

    I agree with Christopher... and you. Fantasy is not and has never been my bag, but this is terrific stuff. I’ve neither read nor seen Lord of the Rings or Harry Potter or anything from Philip Pullman, and probably never will, but I love the way you are lovingly constructing and executing your story.

    Perhaps you should give Lord Of The Rings a go. It's a Marmite book, but it's a class above any other fantasy I've read (which isn't much tbh). I've started a couple of Harry Potter and Philip Pulman myself but never really got into them.
