So I feel somewhat sorry for my editor for this. He’s just finished chapter 3 (now updated on the site) and I’ve dumped another 12k words on his plate in the form of this. And I’m going straight on to chapter 5 (and probably then the epilogue after that) now because I think it’s only fair after reading this chapter.
Hope you all enjoy. (Incidentally, the epub, pdf etc for Slave Elf volume 2 should be up in the next couple of days, the final image just needs a few more things re-touching before it’s ready.)
