This week's selection is a serial that will be running through each Curiosity along with the short stories. Mira Morganstein is *not* a serialized novel--that is, a novel chopped into pieces. It is a serial--think of comic books or T.V. shows. Each "episode" comes complete with a beginning, a middle, and an end for the particular story arc in that episode, but there will not be a story resolution at the end like a novel. Because of how long each episode is, I've divided the serial into two parts. Part 2 is posted today, while part 1 was posted last Monday. In the Curiosity itself, Episode One of Mira Morganstein will be complete and comprised of parts 1 and 2. I hope you enjoy!
Mira Morganstein: Queen of the Nearly Dead Fae, Episode One, Part 2
The one known as Mira Morganstein of the Mortal Realm has been found. As of yet, she poses no direct threat to our Realm, but that is likely to change before the next moon fall. Every citizen is required by Queen Ravenna’s word to report any sightings, rumors, supposings, or information they may have gathered, found, or overheard dealing with or pertaining to Mira Morganstein. Failure to do so will result in being banished to the Mortal Realm for the duration of seven moon falls. Remember: no matter how horrible death may be, there are far worse fates reserved for those whose loyalties lie with elsewhere.
LONG MAY THE QUEEN WIELD HER SCEPTER AND STAFF!
Chapter Five: The Eleventy Year
The meeting was worse than Mira could have imagined.
Rather than one pair of bright, inquisitive eyes studying her inside and out, she had twelve of them to contend with. Her mother didn’t count, mostly because of the worry line etched between her brows and the way her eyes jumped from one person to the next without ever seeming to find exactly what they were looking for.
If her mother was worried, well, that said something.
