I am struggling with an idea in book two. It will make a big impact on the series. As of now, the story has developed to where a Demon Lair is discovered. Rion makes an ally with the Demon Lord and they attack Athelstan. My uncertainty is if the demons should be winged monsters or just another clan of people whose guardian was a demon. Like the rest of Kelperah, each kingdom has a guardian. Athelstan has the Phoenix. The Black Serpents… (You guessed it,) a Black Serpent. The Glacier Kingdom has the Dragon and Toleah has the Griffin.
My worry is that there will just be too much ‘fantasy’ compared to the first novel. Maybe it could be that since the four original guardians have disappeared that the demon guardian thrived and built an army of little demon babies… Matt said I should do Zombies. LOL.
Please let me know what you think. I am completely open to any other suggestions.
