Natalsa of the Brim
Order of Terima Chronicles Volume 1
by Chad McClendon
In a world where witches have been revered, a cataclysmic evening changes everything.
Natalsa, the last witch, must find out what has robbed her of her power. But more than this, she must protect the world from the new order that has arisen, and cure a sweeping disease that threatens her new home.
There is evil to be undone, and Natalsa may have to sacrifice it all, in order to save those she loves.
She started to cry immediately, and begged the powers of the air for their blessing. She was screaming as his body began to hurdle towards the earth. Fervently her lips danced with words of supplication, and towards the end of his descent they turned to demented screams. His body crumbled perversely, and the fear was the last emotion on his face. She could not handle what was happening, and she began to fall back into the crowds.
This was all her fault, she should have surrendered and they would have lived. "Why are you doing this?" She shouted at the heavens. She spat on the earth, and cursed the winds. "Do you want this power to rule? Should I spill my blood here and give myself to him? Fucking work damn you!" She spun around, kicking the dirt and knocking crates and debris over. "Answer me! Years I have gone without answers and before I die I want to understand!"

Tell us about a favorite character from a book.
For a long time, one of my favorite characters has been Bobby Garfield, from Stephen King’s Hearts In Atlantis. Bobby is a good friend, and thinks of others. There are many elements in his story about what a child sees, and what adults see, and how the decisions we make as kids shape who we are for the rest of our lives. I see some of my good, and bad habits, in Bobby, and I feel like parts of his childhood mirror mine; with the exception of the bad guys going after my old friends.
I think about the character in three ways:
Young Bobby is not wanting things to change.
Adult Bobby is realizing the past belongs in the past, and it may not have been all we remembered. Nostalgia is the mind-killer, think of it too long, and you will value nothing of what you currently have.
