Seriously, I can't believe I just did that to Nyx after everything I just did to everybody in this stupid book. The next book will be so much better. The "good" guys will actually "win"! .... sort of!.... in a roundabout way!!
It's like The Dark Knight of the series. Or the Empire Strikes Back at the Dark Knight.
Next book: less Dark Knight, more heads getting chopped off!
Really, that's what every book needs: more heads getting chopped off.
Less than 10K to go, probably more like 8k. It's mostly filler between big scenes now (yes, I wrote a lot of the latter half of this book out of order. This is the only series where I've ever been able to do that).
