Looks like you've accidentally copied "the blood-oath celebration" into this chapter as well. I look forward to you putting the real chapter here. i'm already quite addicted.
Wow. I wasn't prepared for the violence of the Elves' reactions to the fairth, though I didn't think they'd like it. Though I hadn't guessed exactly what it contained, I figured that if Galbatorix and Laela were using their nightmare as a basis for it it wouldn't be good - and I was right! As shocked as I was, I felt even more pity for Galbatorix, and I want to scream at the elves - don't you see what you're doing?!
Another wonderful chapter, Opifex. I'm having trouble putting your story down!
So we meet the great Vrael. I'm intrigued by what you've done with his character, but so far I like it very much. I'm worried though, that by taking such a harsh tack with Galbatorix, he's only going to end up estranging him further. Very, very interesting read.
