Chapter 3: Descendant Contrivance has posted and it is one of my favorites so far. I have heard from readers that don’t like the chapters centering on the Prime Minister as much as those about Maker or Malak, but in Part III, Chapter 3, I think I am finally starting to see her shine. Helen has unplumbed depths of contingencies, agendas, secrets, and plans. She is so, legitimately, twisted that her interactions with others are a delight to craft. I hope you enjoy Descendant Contrivance. Please let me know what you think!
