All the Journeys
From the very beginning, a prophecy from a creepy voice threaded throughout this story. “Winter is coming!” it warned. As the Journeys progressed, we became aware of additional related prophesies like one of the “lost white brother” and “the frozen sands.” Both of those are touched on in this concluding novella.
Other threads from the previous thirteen Journeys also come together in this volume, which concludes Dead of Winter.
I see this conclusion as a two-part ending. Without giving spoilers, the first brings the action to a head and resolves that aspect.
The second is much more than an epilogue. It resolves the issue of the destroyed Veil which separated the Realm of the Living from the Realm of the Dead. Because many readers said they don’t want these Journeys to end, in the final chapter, I added hints about potential future adventures for many of the characters. These are not to suggest sequels. Rather, it’s food for the imagination of readers, so that the story can continue in the mind.
This has been as much of a “journey” for me as it was for Emlyn. I’ve seen truths about myself along the way. Perhaps the same applies to you.
“Who can say? What is true for us? That with which we are born? Or that which is the manifestation of our heart and soul? I like who and what I am, as well as the way I see the world I see around me, when I am a dragon.” — Thyrus the Listener
Thank you for being an important part of the Journeys of Dead of Winter.
This book is important to me, but I’m not able to do a proper launch for it and compete with the flood of new books. So, I invite and encourage reblogging of this post.
