"Everything will be better soon, Daleina thought. She'd climbed to the top of the canopy and was balancing on two slender branches. Spread before her, the forests of Aratay looked magnificent. Red, orange, and yellow leaves blazed like candle flames in the late-afternoon sun. This high up, she could see across all of western Aratay, even as far as the untamed lands beyond the border. Shrouded by a thick mist, the untamed lands looked as if they were boiling. As she watched, a mountain burst out of the soupy haze, and then it crumbled. Beyond the borders of the world, everything was as ephemeral as a sand castle washed away by waves. So long as Aratay had a queen, it would never be like that." -The Queen of Sorrow by Sarah Beth Durst

Well, this is a very hopefully opening! It's not going to stay that happy! What about you guys? Happy reading!
