On one hand, Emily Fisher should be congratulating herself. Quasopon’s police chief, her old friend Bonnie Knowles, told her the only way to solve High Council member Stephen Nash’s murder was to get involved in the affairs of the Children of the New Revelation. And, oh boy, over the course of the last six chapters of Prophecies and Penalties, Emily is definitely finding herself getting sucked in.
On the other hand, Emily thinks she really ought to be investigating the murder just like a real detective. You know, hunting for clues and such? So, even though she gets involved in the Children’s affairs even more, Emily is finally happy that she’s getting a chance to act like a real detective in chapter 12, “A clue?”
Prophecies and Penalties is my current weekly serial. A new chapter goes up every Friday morning. If you’ve not been reading so far, you can start with chapter 1.
