At last! Done, if not definitive and complete.
This volume, the Pillars of Aeden, concludes the main Quest of the series, that of Shelley and Quickblade, and attempts to also conclude a number of other histories, including the campaigns of the Boy Raiders and the Evergirls, the matter of the Frozen Knights and Moonwit the Blue Knight, the departure of the Fairies of Aeden, the transformation of the School of Urak Tara, the liberation of the prisoners of the Valley of Thorns, the fates of Korman and the Lady, of Arcratine the Sword of Korman, of the Tree of Life and the Heartstone, and of Aeden itself in the transition to the Diamond Age.
So I felt it was justified for me to put the draft up for early readers desperate to find out what happens, hoping that the final draft will be the better for their feedback, and that they will forgive any glaring errors in this, the first edition. The Age is perhaps also drawing to a close here on Edartha, and in the difficulties of our transition to the diamond Age I hope this book may be of some use.
