Chapter IV, Black Waters, The End of the Reevers & Oleander’s Secret
“The sunlit swamp was a distant memory now. Cecil sat huddled between his two companions in the darkness of a moonless night. The small torches the three men gripped were not up to the task of throwing much light over the dense scene around them. What was worse than the darkness for Cecil was knowing there was something moving in that darkness. His demons were in those black places that could not be illuminated.”
Chapter IV, in which we are introduced to the beings who worship among the black waters, an old collective comes to a violent end, and we find that Oleander has more to him than once thought. Read the full chapter here. The first book is now available for free download or book purchase here.
