Count down to Altered Destiny: 2 days

It's getting close and I'm getting nervous! Here's an excerpt that gives you a glimpse of the gods in Altered Destiny. This is a conversation between Jaden and Selia.

“Humans don’t know of the Weaver?”

“No. But he sounds a little like the Trickster.”

The flames continued to play with the planes and valleys of Jaden’s face as he crouched on the other side of the fire. “I’m familiar with your Trickster. I’ve seen altars scattered through the forest.”

Selia nodded. The Trickster had no temple because his priests couldn’t be trusted. Instead, people built random altars and left them to the elements. No one knew who received the offerings left on the altars. That was the Trickster’s concern.

“There are pronounced differences between them,” he continued. “The first being the Weaver is female. Another, she is blind.”


"Yes. She weaves the strands of our lives with impartiality.”

“I see.”

“Do you? How else could she mistakenly weave a human and a Svistra together?”

There was definitely bitterness this time.
