Hopefully the appearance of these two adds a certain level of dread to your reading. Building a sense of threat is the dream scenario for a writer of fiction. If you can do that, you’ve got the reader where you want them. I don’t have the capacity to look at my own work and know if there’s dread there…I KNOW what’s going to happen. Note that these two haven’t completely given up their association with the Jeramsus School; they still retain the facial piercings that all members of the school have.
