Noah teams up with Jaden, an illegitimate prince, and Kitera, Captain of the Castle Guard, to find a magical catalyst which everyone seems to be after. Except, they're all in it for their own reasons, constantly keeping dangerous secrets from one another. 

Much despite himself, Noah gets mixed up in power struggles. One for the throne, and the other at the very heart of the forces that black mages like him control. Until he has no choice but to face a frightening question. Do they really control anything? 

"Nothing here is simple, not even the 'dragon' to slay. Come for the black magic and the quest for the catalyst, stay for the wonderful, engaging characters and the skillfully wrought political scene." tlryder - Island of Lost Toys Reviews

@IsaiahLelstya If you watched wrestling, it was Randy Orton’s theme song. If not, it’s “Voices,” by Rev Theory.

Nice two-for-one. Both shows Noah as introspective and conscientious as well as conjures up the emotion of regret  in the reader. Like Avis said below, to not be a chapter in and already be feeling things is pretty darn cool.

This is a nice way to say he's an orphan! I love how you wove it into the story instead of just saying it outright!

@MaeveSiverling The sentence should read:
                              The wide space, where seats used to be, had been converted into curtained stalls with beds for patients.
I think 'a bit red' could be stronger. I see what you're getting at, and you're not a million miles off, I just think you could play with that particular description to give it a bit of ooomh

I really like how you're seamlessly sliding in exposition and backstory throughout the chapter.
