This is unfurling nicely, Lane. Mysterious, a good drip feed of information.
Did anything inspire this novel? I'm curious about the setting. Is this our world, another, post-apocalypse, far-flung past? (You don't have to answer, unless I missed some key clue. I assume such things will become established as I read further.)
I really like the names, they have a good feel to them, sort of American Indian inspired (or so my brain wants to think).
