This is a whole new world! A new world! Do you understand what that means?

My name is Kalutu, and you won’t meet me until Chapter 3, so if you don’t want spoilers, you might want to think twice about reading this. 

I’m a were-owl. Yes, you heard correctly. Don’t give me that look. I know I’m a rare breed, but that doesn’t change the facts.

I had always thought we were alone in the cosmos. Just our world and it wasn’t much to be honest. I understood so little and was okay with that. It didn’t matter that men had no honor, or that they killed each other in ridiculous conflicts that could have just as easily been avoided. It had nothing to do with me, so I kept my beak down and went about my business, which was hunting. I was very good at it. 


And then, I was elsewhere. I ended as part of someone else’s dream, and in that dream I met Prince Eric and his servant Dahr. In knew immediately that they were different from anyone I’d previously interacted with and wanted to learn more.The dream soon ended and so I came to Mysandrika. It was different from anything I had ever known, anything I’d even imagined, but to my surprise and delight, both Dahr and Prince Eric were with me there. My joy was boundless. Imagine what I could learn from them? Imagine what I could discover on a whole new world.

There is so much more I want to say, but the author is giving me that look. You know that look right? Shut your mouth or you’ll pay for it. I feel like Nyri needs to take a lesson from Prince Eric and be a bit more forgiving.
