Where are they now?Brett got a job on his brother Matt’s boat and got to met his nephews and nieces. He now enjoys life as an uncle and a grateful shipmate under his brother’s leadership. Their relationship has been continually mended, and he’s happier than he’s ever been.Ari was offered a place on Matt’s ship and enjoys the sea-faring life with Brett and his newfound family.After spending some time with Matt and Ari, Kaia finally helped Adina track down the rumored safe haven for mages. We can’t tell you much else, but Adina is safe, happy, and learning magic, and Kaia has finally found a home among them all.Rosaleen though, she went back to Ruddlan, where it all began, seeking revenge for the loss of her mother and father especially. She became friends with a griffin handler who had a similar chip on her shoulder, and they have been scheming...And as for James, he continues to change names, identities, and whatever else he feels necessary to stay hidden. But there’s more to come. Eventually.
10. More fighting. They're putting up a fight but getting wounded left and right, and Adina saves either James or Ari's life w/the arrow trick (makin' the arrow go back in time and not give a fatal hit) but just after doing so gets taken b/c she had to pause and focus (letting down her guard) to do so. I imagine Ari especially would fight to break through and get to her but wouldn't be able to @fraey
12. They finally track them down to a big camp. Adina's tied up and gagged, and it looks like they're setting up a noose on a high tree. They have to act fast. James gives quick, brief, hushed directions to them all before they swoop in to get her as stealthily as possible. Gotta think how they win this one w/them all wounded and all... but Adina is saved, and they escape, even if they're all hurting. @sherlockhson (with @fraey)
