NOTE: Although this is called “volume 1,” it’s actually the second volume in the series, after the prologue. You can read the prologue volume here if you haven’t already.
After that short break, we now enter the next volume of the series with a rather heavy introduction. That’s really part of the appeal though, how this story treats subjects like these with such a light touch. It’s a welcome departure from the melodrama you tend to see a lot of in other similar kinds of fantasy. I hope you enjoy reading like always.
