Bravo! Bravo! Hip hip hooray! What a great chapter Jasra, your best one yet. This is really a great read. I am going to take a wild guess right now and say that Keeper Ithra is going to save the day at some point in this story
And Rade is going to be tempted to rejoin the darkside at some point. But I will just have to wait and see
Keep up the more than excellent work.
