I hope this week’s newsletter finds you all well. This week’s Notable & Quotable, comes from Bloom of Blood & Bone, Book II of the Lords of Order & Chaos Series. The audiobook of Blood & Bone is in the final stages of completion! Keep an eye out for announcements and giveaways to celebrate our 5th audiobook release!
“You have a powerful mind,” A’Ilys said. “The achievement of becoming the first Lord of Chaos since the upheaval of the world is not to be ignored. However, of those possessing such powers then, none survive. Think on that. Those powers are the blade. Your body and mind are the hand that wields them. Your body and mind must be strong, agile, and adaptable. You must learn to use the Hidden Hand in combat and negotiation. Again!”
With that, A’Ilys flipped the tip of his sword toward Silas’s exposed side. Silas spun, using his left arm to knock the blade off course. Instead of moving away from A’Ilys, Silas continued his spin inside of the drow’s weapon and hauled his own shrou-sheld in a sweeping arc at A’Ilys’s side. A’Ilys lowered his sword arm and ducked under Silas’s blade. With remarkable speed and agility, A’Ilys rose behind Silas’s swing, produced his dagger from within his sleeve, and struck Silas on the back of his right arm.

As to life here in our little corner of the world, we are all doing well. We are very excited to announce that we will be hosting two foreign exchange students for the upcoming school year. Mia (pictured below) is from Germany and arrived Wednesday. Kaya is from Denmark and will be arriving this coming week. Mia had never heard of a s’more before so we felt it incumbent upon us to correct such a terrible state. After her first bite she said, “I love America!”
