Dispatches #2: Meanwhile, in Moth’s world …

Not that I’m planning to post these dispatches all that frequently … one a week seems reasonable, rather than two a day, but this was actually the second part of the one from this morning.

Meanwhile, today in the next book in Moth’s world, Captain J. is about to face a moment of decision, one of those choices made on the fly, act or don’t act, and her actions (or lack thereof) will put her firmly on one side or the other of what is going to grow into a civil war. Ivah, from Blackdog, has already chosen where she stands, but who’s going to trust her? It looks like Holla-Sayan is going to turn up after all, which will be a bit of a problem for Ivah, given her relationship with the Blackdog. The two main heroes of this book, G. and A., aren’t in this bit, although G.’s path is about to intersect with Ivah’s again.

Drinking rose congou tea from Pippin’s Tea Co. and listening to The Silk Road Ensemble’s Silk Road Journeys: Beyond the Horizon. Everyone’s stuck in a city at present, though, not a camel or a distant horizon in sight. But just beyond the walls, there are mountains, and the road Over-Malagru.
