As I’m sure everyone saw last week’s blog post that Li’ve will be released next Tuesday, April 3rd, 2018. So, why am I writing an update? That’s because the book’s not finished yet.
I have to admit writing the end has been slow. I’ve spent a lot of time thinking about how the book should end. There are a lot of characters that need an ending and they need to meet it in a fitting way. Also, a lot of questions have to be answered along the way. Like, what happened to Surge or Megan? Questions that have been floating out there since Sarin’s War.
The question I’m answering now is what is Galina’s deal? I mean, I know what it is, but getting it down coherently is hard. She’s got a lot of emotion built up, since Metamorphasis and Undead Enemies, and it doesn’t help that Kita shows up with Sheppard in her group. No, they haven’t been shipped. Sheppard found someone else. But she and Galina have history to put to rest. If you remember, Sheppard has her own baggage she’s been dragging around because of Galina besides their broken relationship.
We’ll see how much Kita feels like talking. Galina has a lot to answer for. Kita’s been very calm throughout the entire trip, even in the face of adversity. I think she’s calming a bit in her old age, but that is relative. She did blow up a ship the size of a Star Destroyer as revenge for being imprisoned. I don’t think Kita will simply blow Galina away. Kita wants her to suffer and will be willing to drop to Galina’s level to do it. Defiance has promised Kita a new Advanced Research Wing so Galina might be the first guest.
But the book doesn’t end there. Pheonix and Kamikaze are still out there and neither left happy with Kita. So, there will be some daughter drama coming. And, the series is entitled Game of the Gods, and gods aren’t done either. So there is more to write. I guess I should get busy.
