X-Isle Preview Chapter One

Panic

“What about Thomas?” Was it possible for a brain to explode? “I … we … don’t know where he is. Or at least nobody did when I left Eirentheos on Sunday night.” “What do you mean?” She had never seen William like this, never heard him so upset he couldn’t speak clearly....
