What you're reading here is the first draft of a novel, which I'm writing one episode at a time. The previous two parts were about 26,000 words long, and this part will be around the same length. Once finished the novel will have a total lenghth of 100,000 - 150,000 words. I have some ideas about where the story might be going but mostly I'm going with the flow.
A man enters a new and unfamiliar country, searching for a better life outside of his homeland that has been racked by twenty years of war. He's a storyteller by trade, part of a shamanistic tradition that is on the verge of dying out altogether. Just when he starts to have hopes for a new life, his past comes back to haunt him.
Gradually our hero becomes convinced that there is one man who has all the answers: the King. He sets out to face him and acquires several allies on the way - some human, some not.
To get the most out of part three you might want to read parts one and two first, since several people and places from part two are introduced in it.
